Structural investigation & testing on a heritage building

Key Services

The Post & Telegraph Office is another heritage building in Whanganui’s Old Town area that our structural engineers have worked on. The 1902 building is an important one for the “classic townscape view of Whanganui”, according to the Whanganui District Heritage Inventory.

Our team of structural engineers provided the following investigation and structural testing services:

  • Performed in-situ bed joint sliding tests.

  • Confirmed masonry construction and thicknesses in multiple locations. 

  • Extracted brick and mortar samples from a number of locations for compression testing the EQSTRUC testing laboratory. 

  • Prepared a detailed investigation and material testing report including photographs and filed notes.
