The recent events in Christchurch have brought an increased awareness of Earthquake Prone Buildings (EPB), typically those constructed prior to 1976. Local Authorities across the country are all reviewing their EPB policies. Some have indicated action on these policies by way of notice to building owners who may be considered to have buildings which require assessment. Some Councils are also leading the way with assessment of their own buildings.

If you have any concerns regarding the structural integrity of your residential or commercial building, Hadley Consultants are able to assist by providing the following services:

  • IEP (Initial Evaluation Procedure) assessment by experienced Chartered Professional Engineers
  • Detailed Assessments
  • Strengthening Design, Documentation and Project Management

Work may include response to desktop classification of at risk buildings by Councils. Classification as an EPB potentially places significant cost liability on building owners and it may be that a more detailed assessment by a Chartered Professional Engineer will alter the desktop classification by the Council and remove or reduce the potential cost liability. If you have been contacted by your Council regarding a building you own, you will likely need to have an IEP completed. This will determine your building’s structural performance score compared to New Building Standards and whether it is classified as an Earthquake Prone Building.
