PlusLife Midland now complete

Our new production facility in Midland for PlusLife is now complete and is undergoing certification by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

PlusLife is a not-for-profit organisation that collects, screens, stores and distributes donated human bone and tissue grafts for use in surgical procedures. The new facility includes tissue processing clean rooms, freezer storage, a tissue testing lab and a dedicated research laboratory. It is linked to the adjacent Railway Institute building, which houses PlusLife’s administration staff.

The new building is a contemporary architectural response to the functional, physical and historical context. Echoing the rectilinear bulk and height of the heritage Railway Institute, it shares the same central axis and is carefully located to maintain sightlines to all four corners of the older building.

The PlusLife Board has praised the design of the facility, citing it as the best bone processing clean rooms and laboratories in Australasia, and amongst the best in the world.
