The design of this contemporary, functional facility represents a holistic approach to patient care for Gastroscopy and Colonoscopy patients.

The centrally located Southern Cross Hospital set out to provide the wider community with a standalone purpose built endoscopy centre, further expanding their significant healthcare facility. Innovation in the form of Precast Seismic Structural System (PRESS) for the building's structure was used - a first for the South Island. The building's performance was put to the test as a result of the Christchurch earthquakes in which it responded as predicted and with no structural damage.
