201 Dee Street, Invercargill
Upgrade Works Grant
201 Dee Street was built in 1926 in a simplified art deco design. The building is located opposite the historic St Paul's Church in Timaru and is scheduled as a heritage item in the Timaru District Plan.
A detailed seismic assessment was undertaken in 2018 and identified the critical structural weaknesses as the reinforced concrete walls, columns and the first floor diaphragm.
The Heritage EQUIP upgrade works grant will go towards installing four internal structural steel portal frames.
