Earthquake strengthening [In reply to] Can't Post

is taking place around NZ as a result of lessons learned from the Canterbury earthquakes, with all public buildings having to be assessed against the new building standards for earthquake resistence. In my region (Taranaki), any building that meets less than 33 per cent of the NBS must be strengthened and the owners of buildings with an NBS of 34-66 per cent are encouraged to strengthen them. I don't know if those percentages are consistent around the country.

Currently our art gallery and opera house complex are closed for strengthening, and one wing of the Civic Centre will need to be strengthened.

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
