Event description

OPEN CHRISTCHURCH 2022: Engineering Guided Tour of Tūranga Central Library

With: Jama Borzouie, Senior Structural Engineer, Lewis Bradford Consulting Engineers

Tūranga, Christchurch’s new Central Library is one of the key anchor projects in the Christchurch rebuild. Lewis Bradford Consulting Engineers is proud to have carried out the structural engineering on this complex and multi-award winning project.

Tūranga has been designed incorporating modern low-damage technology to sustain minimal structural damage during a large earthquake. During this tour, you will see the new technologies that were applied in the structural design of this building (rocking walls, dampers and other types of energy dissipators). The design project engineer will describe how these elements work together and what special considerations were followed.


Saturday 30th April, 1pm-2pm
