Colmar Brunton Building

Colmar Brunton Building

The client of this iconic eight storey, 1920’s concrete building on the corner of Taranaki and Wakefield Streets had been notified that this was a potentially earthquake prone building.

By completing a sophisticated 3D push over analysis Silvester Clark were able to show that this building was not earthquake prone and provided a report detailing the assessment method and findings to Wellington City Council. The Colmar Brunton Building has been removed from the Wellington City Earthquake Prone Building Register.
