Christchurch Outpatients Building

The Christchurch Outpatients Building is the first public building in New Zealand to incorporate supplementary viscous dampers. It is classified as an IL3 (Importance Level 3) building due to its high value to the community, meaning that it is designed for 30% more seismic demand than most buildings. This is only the second new building in New Zealand to use this seismic resisting system, the first being an office at 12 Moorhouse in Christchurch, also designed by WSP.
