New Zealand Concrete Society damage control design seminars

Issue 39 – June 2012

The Christchurch earthquakes sequence in 2010 – 2011 has critically highlighted the mismatch between societal expectations over the reality of seismic performance of modern buildings.

The New Zealand Concrete Society (NZCS) is running seminars in June 2012 to discuss motivations, issues, and cost-effective engineering solutions to design reinforced concrete buildings capable of sustaining low-levels of damage and thus limited business interruption after a moderate to severe event.

Seminar dates

  • Christchurch: Wednesday 20 June 2012
  • Wellington: Thursday 21 June 2012
  • Auckland: Thursday 28 June 2012
