The Joint Food Science Facility (JFSF) is located on the ‘Grasslands Precinct’ at Massey University’s Manawatu Campus. 

The new design has taken into account the existing campus masterplan, campus circulation – pedestrian and vehicular, infrastructure and an awareness of the greater high quality campus environment. 

The new facility will be a centre of research excellence that will span the agriculture sector from farm to consumer. The facility provides a platform for the country’s best researchers and scientists in the fields of dairy and red meat research to collaborate together with the intention of creating a world class research institute.

The JFSF will be a 5,000m2 three-storey building that incorporates world-leading labs with workspaces to enhance opportunities for collaboration and information sharing.

The building is a finely crafted ‘machine’ with efficiency, resilience and passive sustainability at its core design, which also benefits the surrounding campus through careful urban design considerations.
