STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS

Wrightway handles the project management of your earthquake repairs. In doing so, our first task is to request a structural engineers report from our trusted panel of Christchurch structural engineering companies. The benefit of having Wrightway Construction project managing your repairs is that we'll do the heavy lifting, the organisation of documents, and ensure accountability on any contractors, or engineers involved. Ideally, you won't lift a finger.

 GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERS

Upon determining that certain structural repairs are required, Wrightway then requests a geotechnical report from our panel of Christchurch geotechnical engineers. We only select and work closely with the best geotechnical engineers to ensure your repair project starts accurately. A geotechnical report measures your soil and ground stability, allowing Wrightway to make informed decisions about how best to plan your repair process.

WHAT DOES A STRUCTURAL ENGINEER DO?

The role of a Christchurch structural engineer in relation to earthquake damage is checking the foundations and the strength of the structure. Once the damage is identified, they then create a structural engineers report to describe the repairs that are required to re-strengthen, fix and make the structure safe again. Wrightway uses this information to make informed decisions, considering safety, and your most cost-effective approach.

WHAT DOES A GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEER DO?

Often referred to as a ground engineer, a geotechnical engineer identifies the ground levels. They bore into the ground (scala test) and measures the density, the soil content, water depth to understand and report on the stability of the ground so a structural engineer can design a repair strategy on the basis of soil conditions.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Once structural engineers have designed the repair strategy, Wrightway can start the process of both scoping and pricing the job. We help you submit the claim to EQC or the insurance company. Wrightway is experienced in Christchurch earthquake repairs and trusted as an earthquake repair specialist having many interactions with EQC for almost a decade.
