Earthquake Strengthening

Feldspar has been working on Heritage Buildings in Dunedin and other centres for over 15 years and the majority of these projects all require earthquake strengthening. Feldspar has a network of trusted structural engineers they work with developing earthquake strengthening strategies that are buildable and cost effective. This strengthening work is often completed in occupied buildings adding further complexity to the staging and planning of the project.

Feldspar works with the engineer and architect to ensure solutions are buildable. There are often multiple solutions to a structural problem. Feldspar understands the different potential solutions and challenges the design team to develop a realistic and viable option.
