Managing earthquake-prone council buildings – a decision framework


Product Description

This guide provides a suggested best-practice framework to support councils to make decisions about the management of council-owned buildings that are earthquake prone. It provides a five-step approach to support consistent decisions about whether to continue using earthquake-prone buildings or not. The guide was developed in line with international standards for risk management (ISO 31000) and with input from territorial authorities. The suggested process reflects and balances various legislative responsibilities and aims to provide confidence to councils on how to meet their legislative obligations while also minimising disruption to council activities and community services.
