Seismic Strengthening

In both residential and commercial building, we believe that it’s better to be prepared than to be left picking up the pieces if the worst takes place. Wellington straddles several fault lines and future shakes are inevitable.

As a seismic strengthening specialist, we follow the required legislation and building standards that have been put in place since the 2010/11 Canterbury earthquakes. It is our aim to meet the expectations of insurers and to withstand the impacts of the elements while keeping building users safe.

Seismic strengthening is a practical and economically viable option for earthquake-prone and vulnerable buildings. However, you can also rely on Wellbuilt to construct your new, earthquake-resistant new building. We use the latest in seismic strengthening methodologies and technologies to fight the onslaughts of nature.

Earthquakes are a part of life in New Zealand, making sure your investment is protected in the event of a shake can cause a lot of unnecessary stress.

Our Strength Lies in Vulnerable Buildings

Wellbuilt’s seismic strengthening service aims to reinforce vulnerable structures and buildings, as well as historic and new buildings.

When the trustees of the historic Katherine Mansfield homestead in Thorndon’s Tinakori Rd needed earthquake proofing, they came to us.

So, too, did the owner of the Master Builders building on Featherston st when they strengthened their carparks.

Also in Karori, a family concerned their internal chimney was not safe. As chimneys present a significant risk due to their weight and height.

Consult Wellbuilt for a complete strengthening or removal service. Compulsory compliance with stricter earthquake regulations is future-proofing tomorrow’s living.

Wellbuilt offers high levels of practical and technical experience, along with a range of capabilities. We will handle the entire process from site safety of your project to arranging your compliance certificates.

Let us help maintain the value of your assets, and ensure the safety of the occupants of your buildings. Get in touch today to discuss your seismic strengthening needs.
