Structural Strengthening

We have completed numerous projects on behalf of commercial clients wishing to upgrade the strength of their building.  In a post earthquake environment, increasing the strength of a building according to the new building standards is of increased significance.  We can work with the Structural Engineer to implement their recommendations effectively by using our extensive technical knowledge and experience.

We would welcome enquiries from both commercial property owners and structural engineers and would gladly assist you with upgrading the strength of your building.

We have recently completed a structural strengthening project to 3 warehouse units within one building.  Prior to the project commencing the units were assessed as being at 19% of the New Building Standard (NBS).  We implemented the recommendations of the clients Structural Engineer, which has increased the building strength to 75% NBS.

At the same time, we undertook a fire upgrade to the units and some refurbishment.

"We engaged Galletly Builders Ltd to complete the seismic strengthening, fire compliance and accessibility upgrades to a unit at 41 Birmingham Drive.  We have been very impressed with all aspects of the work.   The job commenced on the appointed day and was completed within the set time-frame.  The organisation, contract supervision and communications were excellent.  The standard and quality of the work completed by their contractors was excellent and more than met the requirements of the consulting engineers.   Based on our experience we have no hesitation in recommending Galletly Builders for this type of work.
