Engineering Heritage Week | Strengthening and refurbishing heritage structure

How do you balance the heritage values and original fabric of a structure, and the engineering work required to strengthen and adapt it for current and future uses?

Our speakers will discuss their approaches to complex strengthening projects, the challenges they faced and how they worked through these.

Chessa Stevens: The tale of two bridges – how understanding heritage significance can guide the treatment of our country’s unique structures.
John Finnegan: Dunedin Law Courts seismic strengthening and refurbishment.
Greg McFetridge and Eoin Norton: Strengthening Wellington's Town Hall – maintaining heritage in a complex seismic retrofit.
