  • 5 Norwich Quay, Lyttelton

    Completion: 2017

    Architecture: Nott Architects

    Construction: Gary Mason Construction

    Formerly the offices of the Lyttelton Harbour Board, this 140-year old building was badly damaged after the Canterbury earthquakes. Having lost a number of heritage buildings in Lyttelton, including the upper storey of this building, the owners, community and council were eager to retain the remaining brick façade. Structex led the way in developing a scheme to refurbish and strengthen the building as well as securing a grant for the owner to retain the heritage elements.

  • Addington, Christchurch

    Completion: 2018

    Architecture: Fulton Ross Team Architecture

    Construction: Simon Construction

    Located in Addington adjacent to the Tower Junction retail development and the car park of the Christchurch Railway Station, the heritage listed building is a decommissioned water tower built in 1883 from concrete that originally serviced the Addington Railway Workshops. Working in concert with the project team to protect the Heritage values of the tower we were engaged by the Christchurch City Council to provide structural advise starting with securing the building after the 2011 earthquake and going on to assessing the building’s seismic strength and developing repair works to restore the building to the strength if was prior to the earthquakes.

    The seismic assessment was complicated by the poor ground conditions (the tower had settled unevenly during construction, a 1964 survey found the top of the tower was displaced by 190mm from the centreline) requiring assessment of the rocking action of the tower. The design made use of BIM modelling to calculate building mass and centre of gravity.
