Delivering earthquake-resilient structures: how we can do so much better.
Between 2011 and 2016, a series of devastating earthquakes in New Zealand highlighted that there is no room for complacency on the part of designers, contractors, government departments and asset owners when it comes to delivering resilient infrastructure that stands up to Mother Nature. Referencing these real-life events, this talk demonstrates the need for total transparency and accountability within a project team to avoid potentially disastrous consequences for multiple stakeholders.
