Structural

Beach Street Building Strengthening, Queenstown

Hadleys were involved with the seismic strengthening of the Absoloot Value Accommodation building on Beach Street that happened alongside other planned upgrades to the building. Initially we completed both the initial and detailed seismic assessment reports which showed the 1960’s building to be Earthquake Prone with a rating of less than 33% of New Building Standard. We then completed the design and construction monitoring of strengthening works to bring the building to 80% of New Building Standard primarily through the use of an externally fitted structural steel moment resisting frame which minimised disruption to the tenants.
