Project Description

Remembered by many Wellingtonians as the old DIC building, the Harbour City Centre is a registered Category ll heritage landmark. The six-storey steel and concrete frame building was constructed in 1928, well before earthquake performance codes existed.

The two-year project was one of the first seismic upgrades LT McGuinness undertook while a building was occupied. The strengthening brought it to 100 percent of the current code in terms of collapse prevention.
