Seismic Strengthening

Our advanced knowledge of building behaviour in earthquakes and knowledge of working with conventional and relatively new innovative strengthening solutions allows us to create a fit for purpose solution to complex engineering problems. We do not just apply equations but understand the development of the equations that allows us to go beyond % NBS and target performance-based strengthening goals that often result in cost saving for our clients
