With the recent earthquakes in Christchurch, there has never been a better time to look at our surroundings and the options available to earthquake strengthen buildings.
Committed owners, heritage advisors and the government are all taking a firm stand when it comes to strengthening heritage buildings against earthquakes.
Earthquake-strengthening and the techniques and legislation required to safeguard and future-proof New Zealand’s earliest built heritage are a challenge but Aardvark Concrete Services are experts in seismic strengthening and can offer you a solution.
Aardvark Concrete Services are specialists in seismic/earthquake strengthening and their recent portfolio of work exudes this.
Many of the engineers inspecting the aftermath of earthquakes throughout the developing world have seen a lot of collapsed buildings that were made of unreinforced masonry. Most of the people that died during these earthquakes were killed because of such poorly constructed buildings. Sometimes it is said that one day we will see a million people killed by an earthquake.
Until all buildings in seismically active regions are constructed or strengthened to withstand earthquakes, this may well happen.
