Warren and Mahoney has expanded their senior leadership and healthcare specialist team, with the appointment and recent promotion of Adele King based in the practice’s Auckland studio


Adele King joined Warren and Mahoney earlier this year bringing 17 years’ experience, predominantly in healthcare design including the design of the University of Otago Dental School Redevelopment and Waikato DHB Waiora CDB development. Most recently working at Jasmax, Adele now heads up Warren and Mahoney’s healthcare team in Auckland, and is the project lead on the upgrade of the Manukau Health Park in Manurewa; a $211M project that includes the Manukau Superclinic and Elective Surgical Care facility.

Adele says she is proud to be joining the senior leadership team at a pivotal time for healthcare design.

“It is an exciting time within Warren and Mahoney, particularly as we build our capacity to support New Zealand healthcare at this critical time for the country. I’m privileged to be a leader of New Zealand’s largest and most experienced health team motivated to create effective healthcare facilities for our clients and communities.

“I’m passionate about adopting wellness and sustainability principles into the way we design healthcare facilities, to support and enhance the wellbeing of patients, whanau and staff.

“Our team is fortunate to be working on a number of significant healthcare projects across the country, including the new $1.45bn Dunedin hospital and the Taranaki Base Hospital Redevelopment, among others.”

Studio Principal Andrew Tu’inukuafe says this promotion marks an important step for the firm.

“Adele’s collaborative and strong leadership approach mean she is well-respected within our studio and the wider architecture and healthcare communities.

“Adele has made an immediate impact both in delighting our clients and in leading our health team from the front”.
