Scone River Project, Zero Invasive Predators Ltd

Director Guy Lethbridge and Draughting Technician Andrew Murphy had an unusual few days “on site” flying to the Scone River Bridge inland from Kaikoura to undertake a site assessment.  A couple of months later, Andrew was back again installing the first prototype of the predator-proof gate to prevent possums, rats and stoats crossing the Bridge.


The project is featured in the Zero Invasive Predators (ZIP) Annual Report.

Rapid Building Usability Assessments following a Hazard Event

On 2nd May,  seven Strata Group engineers attended a training course about how to undertake Rapid Building Usability Assessments (RPA) during a state of emergency. This training covered how the RPA system works to quickly establish usability of buildings and associated infrastructure when functions may be compromised by a hazard event.

This training will prove invaluable to the safety of our team of engineers should Hawke's Bay be faced with such an event  - and our clients can rest assured that our staff can be contacted to act quickly and professionally should the need to assess their property ever arise.
