Earthquake Damage & Remediation

Earthquake remediation

Mainmark offers the world’s most advanced technologies for earthquake remediation.

Our methods are tested and proven to strengthen the ground and provide excellent liquefaction mitigation.

We help ensure homes, buildings and other structures are brought back to level and given a strong, stable base. This also allows for cosmetic repairs to the damage that seismic activity has caused.

Mainmark has successfully resolved thousands of earthquake remediation projects internationally. We have a great deal of experience, most notably in New Zealand, Japan, and other earthquake-prone countries. Our ground improvement and liquefaction mitigation solution has been formally recognised as a geotechnical innovation after four years in development. This innovative solution has undergone extensive trials and testing in Christchurch Red Zone.

The internationally peer reviewed report for our resin injection ground improvement research trials has been released. The full report is now available for review on the New Zealand Geotechnical Society website

Earthquake remediation in homes

Mainmark has extensive experience with residential earthquake remediation, having brought thousands of houses back to level.

Our methods are suitable for buildings impacted by all varying degrees of seismic activity. The versatility of our ground improvement solutions mean they are effective for buildings of any size.

Our Solutions

Mainmark offers re-levelling solutions for both simple and complex structures. Our technologies are suitable for your earthquake remediation, whether you live in a single family home or multi story townhouse.

Unlike traditional re-levelling approaches, we carry out earthquake remediation with little to no mess, noise or inconvenience. Our Teretek and JOG methods are precise, practical, and non-invasive — all with minimal disruptions to your home.

Teretek Resin Injection

Teretek is a unique solution that both re-levels your house and increases the ground strength.

Mainmark has developed Teretek for decades, working with international experts to test its effectiveness. The performance of Teretek has been successful across a wide range of conditions. This is also a sustainable solution as the resin injection doesn’t affect groundwater, soil quality, or local wildlife.

JOG Computer-Controlled Grouting

We also offer JOG, an award-winning technology for re-levelling and strengthening ground. This computer-controlled grouting is an advanced alternative to costly demolition or underpinning works. JOG works by using computer-controlled cement grout injection beneath large structures. This is a precise method for consolidating weak ground and gently lifting foundations. 

In some cases, soils will have subsided away from the foundations, creating voids under the slab. We can fill these using either Terefil or Teretek, depending on the size of the void.

 

Re-levelling the Christchurch Art Gallery

During the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, the Christchurch Art Gallery suffered significant damage to its foundations, causing the 33,000 tonne building to sink.
Mainmark worked closely with the project’s engineering team to successfully re-support and re-level the 6,500 square metre foundations in just 52 days, without requiring excavation or the occupants and exhibits to vacate.
