ISA of hall and reporting

Geotechnical Engineering

Engeo GeoScience Consulting


We were asked to inspect the school hall, also used as the local Civil Defence meeting point, in terms of meeting current building standards for seismic capacity.

GeoScience Consulting providing the required desktop assessment of the site and confirmation of the site seismic design parameters.

In undertaking the Initial Seismic Assessment (ISA) of the school hall we retrieved available building records from Wellington City Council and visited the building to inspect the key features, both inside and out.

We reported our assessment to the school board for further consideration on proposed future strengthening and a Detailed Seismic Assessment (DSA).
