Earthquake events in the last decade have increased the awareness of seismic-related risks in New Zealand. Changes to legislation and the way in which building earthquake ratings are assessed mean that seismic risks are now a key consideration for all building owners and occupiers.

Topics covered will include:

  • Key considerations when advising clients about commercial property decisions - buying, selling or leasing
  • Identify key risks and how best to mitigate/ manage these
  • Potential other emerging factors.
