Site Visit: Wellington Town Hall Restrengthening


Price $20 NZD Register

Event description

Ahead of the NAWIC Excellence Awards 2024, join NAWIC members on a tour of one Wellington's most iconic buildings 

Te Whare Whakarauika, the Wellington Town Hall is a Category 1 Heritage listed building and is nearly 120 years old. It has been closed to the public since 2013, when it was deemed earthquake prone.

The seismic strengthening and redevelopment of the Wellington Town Hall has now reached an important part in the construction programme with the majority of seismic strengthening works coming to an end. So far, a base isolation system to reduce seismic loads and improve resilience has been retrofitted, alongside a new foundation system to accommodate the base isolation and further improve the inadequate foundation system that originally supported the building.

Main Contractor: Naylor Love


DATE & TIME: 1pm on the 19th July 2024

VENUE: Meeting point is the bottom of the stairs near 15 Harris Street. Naylor Love staff will meet us there.
