Holmes Consulting

Kaikoura Seawall Buildability Project

PROJECT

Kaikoura Seawall Buildability

In the aftermath of the Kaikoura earthquakes, Holmes was engaged to assess the buildability of new seawalls along State Highway 1 on the Kaikoura Coastline.

Their client, NCTIR, engaged Holmes to assess whether building to the designed set out geometry would result in any interference between the precast elements that make up the wall. NCTIR wanted Holmes to model the seawalls and perform a clash detection with the goal of establishing (and potentially enhancing) the buildability of the walls.
