Seismic Award

Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings Bellamy’s Wing

Entrant: Christchurch City Council

The seismic strengthening of Bellamy’s Wing of the Provincial Council Chambers starting in the mid 1980s saved the majority of the historic fabric. Benjamin Mountfort’s design intent and important decorative elements were maintained in the innovative strengthening work undertaken prior to the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. Although significant restoration and extensive future strengthening work will be required, this key component of the Provincial Council Chambers complex will survive into the future.
