SPCA & Doggy Daycare Hobsonville. New Zealand

Altro Whiterock White

Altro Aquarius Puffin


For over 140 years, the SPCA have been protecting thousands of animals every year who are sick, injured and mistreated. They are New Zealands oldest and largest animal welfare charity, with 39 centres across the country and over 45,000 animals coming thorugh their centres yearly.

The SPCA was looking for wall and floor solutions to use throughout the facility that were impact resistant and impervious to water.


Micah Spear from Design Architectural recalled seeing Altro Whiterock at a trade event and knew it would be the perfect fit.

“The SPCA was looking for wall and floor linings that would be resistant to damage, denting, scratching, mould and water ingress. I had seen an Altro Whiterock shower module at an Equinox trade event a few years earlier and thought that it could be the perfect solution for this installation. The SPCA also liked its hygienic/anti-bacterial properties. The jointing sample board that I provided the SPCA proved to be difficult to scratch and they liked the welded jointing option. Altro Whiterock ticked all of the boxes needed by the client.” - Micah Spear, Design Architectural.


Altro’s fully integrated system was the best choice for the project, and therefore Altro Whiterock White was chosen for the walls and Altro Aquarius was chosen for the floors. The installation was completed by Crown Flooring.

“We have been impressed with how easy the Whiterock has been to clean and maintain. The seamless thermoformed corners and welded joints not only look fantastic but also make Whiterock a simple product to wipe clean. We currently have not experienced any scratching or damage to the Whiterock and are looking forward to many years of hygienic, damage free, easy to clean wall lining and non-slip flooring performance from Altro Whiterock and Aquarius"- Daniel Hadfield, SPCA & Doggy Day Care, Hobsonville, Auckland.
