Six Buildings in Feilding
Feilding has a substantial number of intact Edwardian buildings in its town centre. A council-led consultation process identified a group of six of these buildings as the town’s most important. Although they have four different owners, all six are Heritage New Zealand Category 2 listed.
Together the building owners have tasked a single engineer to provide for each building a detailed seismic assessment, concept structural design, and high-level costing of that design. The fee proposal was the basis for a Heritage EQUIP multiple building application to part-fund the proposed advice.
This outcome is the result of successful partnership work between the building owners, Manawatu District Council, Heritage New Zealand, and Heritage EQUIP.
