BALLARAT – Victorian company Westlab Pty Ltd has been engaged to design and furnish a new laboratory for Western Diagnostic Pathology (WDP). The facility located in Jandakot’s Business Park, Perth, will be one of the largest private pathology laboratories in Western Australia, boasting 6,000 square metres.

Westlab’s laboratory design team worked closely with Western Diagnostic Pathology, PS Structures and Silver Thomas Hanley Architects (STH) to create lean and functional spaces that can stand the test of time. Westlab’s scope of work in this important project includes:

  • Drafting and detailing STH laboratory design
  • 750 linear metres of benching
  • Interchangeable cabinetry
  • Ventilation and biosafety cabinets
  • Chemical, roller and multi-purpose storage systems
  • Delivery and installation

“We are pleased to be involved in the design and delivery of this flagship Australian project. The facility is future-proofed with Westlab’s unique and reconfigurable laboratory furnishing system. The exceptional design and extensive collaboration with WDP will ensure a high ROI and functional laboratory space” commented Russell Grace, Westlab’s Projects Director.

The Jandakot facility will replace Western Diagnostic Pathology’s ageing central laboratory in Myaree and Vetpath’s Specialist veterinary pathology laboratory in Ascot. The new Jandakot laboratory is expected to be in full production by early 2021.

Through Specialist Diagnostic Services (SDS) and its brands – such as Western Diagnostics Pathology and Vetpath, the parent company Healius has become one of Australia’s largest private pathology service providers. Each year, SDS analyses and reports on over 15 million patient cases from samples collected across its Australian collection centres.
