Taranaki Base Hospital

City: New Plymouth
Architect: Warren & Mahoney
Construction Company: Fletcher Construction Company
Completed: 2013

Taranaki Base Hospital (New Plymouth) utilised Thermosash curtainwall with integrated terracotta tiles and aluminum 'weatherboard' in order to manage the anticipated building movement, whilst ensuring the building will remain largely operational should it be exposed to a large earthquake.

By unitising the facade system - the envelope was installed much faster than a traditional build which enabled the intensive internal fitout to progress quickly.
