Premier Buildings 1907' - as it was in 1934, and how it is today.

We recognise that heritage buildings need to have a viable use to ensure their long-term future, and that seismic upgrading is often incorporated into renovation/alteration schemes.

CSI can assist where there is a lack of drawings (often the case with older buildings), and where unrecorded alterations have been undertaken during the lifetime of the building.  CSI can check assumptions made by designers about the subject structure.

CSI has a broad knowledge base, with licensed and qualified professionals who understand building techniques used in historic structures of all types.

Using non-destructive investigation techniques where possible to minimise the impact on historic fabric.

CSI has the experience necessary (and is keen to engage and work with Building Owners, their tenants and consultants) to provide the required data efficiently.
