The development is the first base-isolated apartment building in Wellington and sets a new standard of residential apartment seismic safety
Victoria Lane Apartments base-isolated structure and diagrid frame are the gold standard for seismic performance.
The benefits of base isolation are profound in terms of resident safety. It will also significantly reduce the experience of an earthquake for occupants of the building.
This seismic resilience is similar to key strategic buildings such as Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington Hospital and the New Zealand Police Headquarters.
Constructed by LT McGuinness, one of New Zealand’s pre-eminent building companies, many of the building’s other specifications also go well beyond what is required or expected by code or convention.
Informed by the latest in engineering know-how and technology, Victoria Lane Apartments are state-of-the-art.
