More quake-prone buildings closed
Wed, 29 Feb 2012 8:36a.m.
More buildings in Canterbury have been closed down by CERA.
Thirty-seven buildings in the Selwyn District have been identified as earthquake prone - letters have been sent to the owners of the buildings after assessments showed they are potentially earthquake-prone.
Council buildings such as the Doyleston Library, the Lakeside Community Memorial Hall, the Greenpark Hall, Dunsandel Hall and Tai Tapu Library have been closed.
The Building Act defines an earthquake-prone building as one that is at risk of collapse in a moderate earthquake, or which does not meet at least 33 perecent of the current building code. Affected commercial businesses are able to continue trading, pending consideration of their engineering assessments by CERA.
