Structural Earthquake-Damage Assessment and Repair Design of Canterbury Residential Houses

The Tectonix team have been working closely with The Earthquake Commission (EQC) and the Canterbury homeowners over the past several years to date working on earthquake-damage assessment and repair of residential houses affected by the recent earthquakes. This includes houses affected by the Canterbury Earthquake Sequence (2010-2011) and the Kaikoura Earthquake (2016). This involves extensive site investigations and detailed levels and verticality measurements of the structural components of a house. This often requires close coordination with other engineering disciplines and with EQC and the homeowner. The Tectonix team had successfully completed hundreds of these houses to date and still ongoing.
