We have assembled a team of competent consultants including architects, interior designers, structural engineers, building surveyors and quantity surveyors, to provide a detailed assessment and provide strengthening options and solutions for Project that require Earthquake Strengthening.

The strengthening process can have a significant impact on the architecture and function of the building(s) and these needs to be managed to ensure a positive outcome for the Building Owner, existing and future occupants.

We will manage the strengthening process through the Design, Building Consent and Construction processes and our involvement at the early stages of planning can have a significant positive impact on the final outcome.

What are the benefits of earthquake strengthening?

• better insurance premiums
• it’s easier to sell a strengthened building as its easier to raise finance
• easier to rent as tenants are now more discerning about Earthquake rating
• better rentals rates with strengthened and upgraded buildings
• last but certainly not least is that strengthening will have to happen.
The advantages of a team approach include:

• reduction in the impact of the Earthquake strengthening requirements
• coordination of the Earthquake strengthening work (by all required sub consultants) into the new upgraded facility
• maximization of effect of $ spent
