Seismic strengthening

Our team of engineers is experienced in the seismic strengthening of residential, low-rise commercial, industrial, and civil structures.

Our seismic strengthening services include:

  • Initial and detailed seismic assessments to determine the likely performance of your building in the event of an earthquake. This can be used to identify if your building, or any part of your building is earthquake-prone.
  • Detailed design of strengthening and seismic retrofit options tailored to your preferences and needs.
  • We have experience designing retrofit solutions for lightweight parapets and chimneys to strengthen and make safe existing buildings.
  • PS1 and LBP Memorandum design certification provided to the Christchurch City Council on your behalf to obtain building consent approval as required.

If you would like to know more about this service, please contact us for more information by calling (03) 3416682 or email info@nzcse.co.nz.
