DIOCESAN SCHOOL FOR GIRLS SCHOOL CHAPEL: PRESERVING ITS HERITAGE
We were engaged to carry out detailed assessments of several buildings for the school, and as part of this work the School Chapel was identified as Earthquake prone.
We carried out a detailed assessment of the chapel and designed strengthening works, ensuring minimal effect on the aesthetics of the building.
The improvement works were successfully completed, utilising many improvement techniques, including post-tensioned walls, diaphragm roof plane, and utilising Flexus to improve in plane and out of plane wall capacities to achieve >100NBS.
Benefits of having us on the team:
The improvements we made are invisible – helping to preserve the chapel’s heritage value.
