Two buildings soon to be constructed in Christchurch could lead the way for a seismically safer New Zealand.
The showcase Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology Arts & Media building scooped two major awards in the NZ Wood Timber Design Awards announced on Tuesday – commercial engineering and commercial architectural excellence.
Some Christchurch homeowners are saving their damaged homes by taking remedial action rather than waiting to have them demolished, says a repiling expert.
The role of supplying native timber so the prized wood adorns the work of craftspeople, architects, joiners and builders is no mean feat.
