Abstract

The CRC Project A9 entitled “Cost-Effective Mitigation Strategy Development for Building Related Earthquake Risk” is seeking to address the need for an evidence base to inform decision making on the mitigation of the earthquake risk posed by vulnerable Australian buildings. It aims to develop information related to more vulnerable Australian building types in the following areas:
• retrofit strategy options for high risk buildings to reduce their vulnerability;
• the current and retrofitted performance of these buildings;
• the cost of implementing the retrogit strategies; and,
• the ability to assess the benefit of avoided societal costs through the implementation of these strategies.
This project also includes a case study to demonstrate the utility of the research with central Melbourne identified as the locality. Central Melbourne has a concentration of older unreinforced masonry buildings so the case study will examine the current risk posed by these and how they can be mitigated through application of the measures developed in this CRC project. Significantly this project will link to the concluding utilisation project on York and will integrate research outcomes on heritage value to be developed by the CRC project “Economics of Natural Hazards” led by the University of Western Australia. This progress report describes the scope, the research elements and status of these, and the process by which they are being integrated into the final research outcomes. It also provides background to a requested variation to delay the final deliverable and associated CRC payment to enable other research outputs to be integrated.
