New World Green Bay has been a fixture in the local community for the past 52 years and is one of the oldest New Worlds in New Zealand. With the original store structure dating back to the 1960s, the store no longer met Foodstuffs seismic standards and was well overdue a revamp.

Our Structural team offered review of this Foodstuffs store and its probable structural seismic performance. Due to the identified structural deficiencies, we provided a cost-effective design for strengthening of the existing store and new extension construction, which included 50% of the original structural and 50% new. Providing cost-effective structural engineering solutions at the pre-resource consent stage allowed our clients to proceed with the project within budget.

“This was an economical solution which allowed the store to remain fully operation during the 11-month rebuild.”- Jan Jober, Principal Structural Engineer
