Five weeks after the 7.8 magnitude Kaikoura earthquake the Wellington City Council is telling the owners of 80 buildings to do further engineering assessments. Most of the buildings are between four and 16 floors high, made out of reinforced concrete, with precast concrete slab floors. Wellington architect and property developer Mike Cole is president of the Wellington branch of the Property Council & Peter Smith is a structural and civil engineer who consults for Spencer Holmes.
