Developing a plan for your building

If your building has been identified as earthquake-prone, or you expect it to be, you’ll need to consider your options carefully. 

If you are planning a seismic strengthening project you’ll need to define: 

  •    what you want to achieve
  •    why you want to do it
  •    how it will be funded. 

Heritage New Zealand may be able to help you to scope your project. And contact your council to discuss your building’s requirements.

You will need to engage building professionals to develop a plan and designs for your building.

If your building is in a regional area with a medium or high seismic risk, you may be eligible for a Heritage EQUIP Professional Advice Grant to support this work.
