Earthquake structural protection: The benefits of resilient building design

February 8, 2016

New Zealand’s deadly 2011 Christchurch earthquakes have prompted an increased focus on and strong uptake of earthquake-resilient building technologies, in response to a better understanding of seismic risk versus building investment. Aurecon building seismic engineering specialist, Stephen Hogg, explains the benefits of investing in resilient design technology.
