THE BEST EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT SOLUTIONS

 

Canterbury University structural engineer Assoc Prof Stefano Pampanin believes the new designed seismic damage-resistant material, Pres-Lam (Pre-stressed-Laminated Timber) should be used in all new or replacement buildings in New Zealand. The new technology is designed and tested to suffer minimum or no structural damage itself and will also protect owners from seismic damage. Furthermore, timber is green and sustainable, and can be integrated with other materials to perform to the highest standards.
