Address: Units 1 to 4, 117 Beresford St, New Brighton, Christchurch
Client: Contract Rebuild
Scope: Structural Inspection and design
Multi-dwelling structural assessments are one of the more complex endeavours that many clients face in resolving their earthquake damage claims throughout Canterbury. Successful resolution requires that many factors be addressed to ensure the job is done once and right.
The team of experienced Engineers from iStructures were engaged to inspect a Technical Category 3 (TC3) block of four units located within New Brighton. The block of units featured heavy Summerhill stone veneers and concrete tile roofs, overall the units had settled by 60mm to 100mm per unit to date.
By working collaboratively with one another, the Engineers’ at iStructures were able to quickly identify the global nature of earthquake related damage across the units, rather than assessing the units individually. This meant that within 3 Weeks the block of units were assessed and a repair strategy created allowing the block of units to be restored to their pre-earthquake condition as quickly as possible.
iStructures earthquake related structural inspections and prosed repair strategies comply with section 112 of the Building Act 2004, and fit within the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) Guidelines to ensure unnecessary delays are avoided in the repair process.
iStructures has completed numerous multi-dwelling inspections and repairs to date, which we would be happy to discuss in detail should you have any queries over how we may assist you in the structural inspection and repair of your multi-dwelling structure.
