New earthquake-prone building resources

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) has developed a set of online courses explaining the new system for identifying and managing earthquake-prone buildings. 

There’s one for building owners - outlining the process you'll need to follow if your building is identified as potentially earthquake-prone.

There are also courses for councils and engineers - outlining the process for identifying, assessing and deciding on earthquake-prone buildings.

Local Government New Zealand Conference (15-17 July)

We are proud to be supporting the Local Government New Zealand conference in Christchurch this month. Fund Manager Mike Frew will be on hand to discuss Heritage EQUIP with other attendees.

If you’re planning a seismic strengthening project, you’ll need to work out the financial impact of the work on your building.

What will you need to consider when determining the financial feasibility of your project?
