Epoxy Injection to Seismic Bearing
& Base Plate at 151 Cambridge Terrace

Base Isolation Technology requires a building to be separated from the ground, by isolation devices which can dissipate energy.

Base isolation is designed to take the weight of the building and let the foundations move sideways during an earthquake.

Base Isolation Technology was utilized by Jasmax in their design of the new building at 151 Cambridge Terrace (Christchurch). Technosol were delighted to play a role in the installation of this technology having been asked to provide a viable system and methodology to secure the steel base plate to the seismic bearing plate, a gap of 6mm.

Technosol researched and developed a system that would ensure total penetration of the confined area between the steel base plate and the seismic bearing plate. The methodology and test template were peer reviewed by the project engineers, Aureon.
Using the approved methodologies, Technosol undertook the successful epoxy injection under pressure to 19 seismic bearing plates (900mm x 900mm x 6mm) on columns from basement to ground level
Technosol is committed to a zero harm safety philosophy. Injury free days on this job is 100%
