Abstract: Wintec F block is a two storey unreinforced masonry (URM) building constructed in 1917 with an architectural style termed “stripped classical”, that was assessed to be potentially earthquake prone according to the provisions of the Building Act 2004. Material testing and seismic assessment were conducted on the as-built structure and it was determined thatWintec F block had sufficient out-of-plane seismic strength for most of its walls, but that the building had insufficient in-plane seismic strength. Seismic improvement was proposed using a type of strain-hardening fibre reinforced shotcrete called Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) combined with steel reinforcement, and the building was strengthened to 100% of New Building Standard (NBS).
