BLIND FOUNDATION BUILDINGS
Designing a Seismic Strengthening System that can be Implemented in Stages
The Foundation Buildings in Parnell are a very well preserved and maintained campus of brick and concrete buildings that have enjoyed strong tenant support for many years.
Structure Design have completed Detailed Seismic Assessments (DSA) of the Jubilee Hall, Cavit Building, Workshop Building and Pearson House. The Jubilee Hall and the Cavit Building has been
strengthened and we are currently strengthening the Workshop Building using a staged approach as the tenant vacates a space at the end of their lease.
The strengthening design has been co-ordinated with the heritage architect to ensure the works are
not detrimental to the aesthetics to the building.
