Earthquake Strengthening of Masonry Buildings Taihape News Image

Do you own an earthquake-prone building?

We are hosting a free presentation to discuss how to future-proof earthquake-prone masonry buildings in town.

Following an introduction from Mayor Andy Watson, hear from our keynote speakers:

  • Arthur Morgenstern, Company Director at Seismic Performance Ltd
  • Geoff Wilson, Proprietor of the Treasure Trove
  • Graeme Bodley, Principal Adviser and Director of Greenstone Insurance.

They’ll be sharing their insights about the process for earthquake strengthening, what support is available, and how earthquake strengthening and insurance cover can add to the asset value of your property.

Guests are invited to stay after the event to network and to talk directly with the keynote speakers. Tea and coffee will be available during the event.

If you are unable to attend in person, this presentation will be live on Zoom.
