Decades of experience in the world’s seismic hot spots

Since the 1960s, Beca has been a global leader in the field of earthquake engineering, with solutions and services to help improve the seismic resilience of countless organisations and communities.

We work on a diverse range of earthquake engineering projects across the globe – from the seismic assessment of earthquake-prone buildings in New Zealand to the development of seismic codes in Asia and large-scale retrofit programmes in Europe.

With our engineering roots in the ‘shaky isles’ of New Zealand, we have always been at the forefront of earthquake engineering – in fact, you might say it’s in our DNA. Protecting lives and assets against this devastating force of nature drives our engineers to seek the best solutions for our clients and communities. And with project experience across the globe, we’ve extensive capability in seismic resilience solutions.

Our engineers adopt approaches for analysis and design, which are then overlaid with a pragmatic approach to solving the problem at hand and delivering the best outcomes for our clients.

As our understanding of the impact of earthquakes continues to evolve, we are always challenging ourselves to deliver sustainable, leading edge solutions.

Contact our earthquake engineering specialists to discuss how we can help you with the seismic assessment and retrofit of existing structures, liquefaction analysis, low-damage design, portfolio seismic risk advice, seismic hazard analysis, seismic restraint services and more. We're ready to help make your everyday better.
