Description

Following a 2-year transition period, Acceptable Solution B1/AS1 will no longer be used for foundations on land prone to liquefaction. Foundations will be consented as a Verification Method or Alternative Solution.

New Zealand is a high earthquake hazard region, and earthquake considerations are integral to the design of the built environment. Liquefaction is a real risk (especially to buildings) as it can result in settlement, tilting, stretching and damage to services and utilities.

Scope

This article includes:

  • What is liquefaction?
  • What are its effects?
  • Lessons from Christchurch
  • Building Code change to foundations
  • Some cost concerns raised
