Following the devastating earthquakes both in Christchurch and overseas in recent times, earthquake preparedness is in the forefront of a lot of people’s minds.

We have a large portfolio of buildings both in Wellington and around the country now that we have assessed and/or strengthened. We have assessed small commercial buildings and sporting venues as well as some of the tallest buildings in New Zealand.

We work for clients that have national building portfolios and who have a policy in place for the assessment and strengthening in a set time frame. Through our expert contacts we can provide investigation and costing services to make sure the complete picture is presented to our clients.

Silvester Clark is also working hard with plant and other non-structural element providers to provide restraint in seismic events.


“Buildability is always important to us as building contractors and we have found Silvester Clark to design with this in mind.”

T. Holmes

“Again I must compliment your firm for the professionalism that was displayed in dealing with the Hutt City Council and their consultants to bring this matter to a very successful conclusion.”

C. Nicholl
“We found the entire process painless. Silvester Clark corresponded directly with WCC on our behalf. We now have a building that is not on the earthquake prone register. This has added value to our property.”
D. Tingey
“This is good news! Thanks for your help in having our property assessed as being more that 33% NBS. My fellow unit owners and myself appreciate your efforts.”
C. Anderson
“For a total costs of around $20,000 (including professional engineers fees, Council fees and the strengthening work itself) the building has been transformed from an earthquake-prone structure to an 100% compliant building. The Owners are naturally delighted with the result and are highly impressed with the services of Silvester Clark.”
S. Mulholland

Because of yours and Silvester Clark’s urgent and quality assistance, we now have clarity on our next move in pursuing this building.
