Huddart Parker Building

Project Summary

Client: Huddart Parker Limited

Project Type: Heritage

Project Timeframe: 2012-2013

Architects: Seddon Associates

Project Description

In 2012, the Huddart Parker office block was tired and facing an uncertain future. It was one of the country’s first fully-reinforced buildings when built for the Huddart Parker shipping company between 1925 and 1928. But by 2012 standards, its seismic rating stood at just 29 percent.

Designed in the Chicago style, the existing exterior was to remain untouched during re-strengthening, apart from a fresh coat of paint. All the seismic works had to be completed inside the building.
