The building owner was considering refurbishment works and wanted to know if seismic strengthening was required.
We completed a detailed assessment and were able to show that this building had almost half the required strength of a new building and therefore is not earthquake prone and does not need to be strengthened.
We forwarded our findings to the Wellington City Council at the request of our Client and this building was not added to the Earthquake Prone register.
