Seismic Assessment, Alterations with New Retail in the CBD
This major redevelopment of an existing eight storey building in City Centre, included the complete removal of one of the lower floors to create double height spaces suitable for the proposed use as high end retail, installation of escalators, as well various other alterations and additions.
This required a detailed seismic assessment of the existing building to fully understand the behavior of the building. This understanding enabled the boundaries to be pushed in terms of the extent of alterations for a building of this size.
