Forté Health is Christchurch's newest private hospital. The building contains operating theatres, day stay facilities and consultant rooms for a range of medical practices. Being a hospital and specialist centre, the building has been designed as an 'Importance Level 4' building. This means the building has been designed to remain operational after a 1 in 500 year earthquake. The seismic resisting structural frames have been contained within glazed elements on the façade to become an integral part of the architectural design.
