Seismic strengthening is the process of making buildings and other structures more resistant to earthquakes, which can help to reduce the risk of damage and ensure the safety of occupants. In New Zealand, seismic strengthening has become increasingly important in recent years due to the country’s high seismic activity.
In this category of articles, we will explore the various aspects of seismic strengthening, including the methods used, the benefits of strengthening, and the costs involved. We will cover topics such as seismic assessments, retrofitting, and strengthening techniques for different types of buildings.
