Practical Implications of Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability report

The Practical Implications of Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability report has been prepared by EQC’s engineers, Tonkin + Taylor, to assist EQC and its valuers in developing and implementing an ILV DOV methodology. The report presents the advice that a geotechnical engineer would be expected to give a buyer or seller of a property in Canterbury about the practical implications which result from that property having a material increase in liquefaction vulnerability due to the Canterbury earthquake sequence. These practical implications include:

  • an increased likelihood of moderate-to-severe liquefaction related land damage in future earthquakes;
  • an increased likelihood of significant liquefaction related building damage for existing residential buildings in future earthquakes; and
  • potential increased ground improvement and building foundation requirements for new residential buildings.
