Strengthening & Full Refurbishment
The scope of the project required full strip out, re-strengthening and refurbishment to be completed in just four months. The hotels Lincoln wing and Roosevelt wing were damaged from the main February 2011 earthquake. New foundations, block walls and structural steel were installed to bring the wings back up to 67% of the NBS, so they could be reoccupied. The project was very challenging due to the compressed timeframe, but our team delivered in every aspect.
“House Lifters were engaged to re-level our earthquake damaged two-storey, concrete house in lower Cashmere, which is on a steep site with difficult access. Engaging House Lifters proved an excellent decision. They started work on the agreed date and despite some shocking weather along the way they finished ahead of schedule.”
