"It takes an earthquake to remind us that we walk on the crust of an unfinished earth...”


1994 In Sunday Morning,




Across the 'Shaky Isles'


More earthquakes have reminded us how fragile our relationship with the earth is. It can be easy to settle into a sense of complacency until the earth shakes us back to reality. That's why the Quake Centre was set up - to meld the best of the industry and academic spheres with the aim of delivering the best outcomes in seismic engineering innovation.


We cannot accurately predict when an earthquake will strike, or where it will be centred - but we can prepare for them by ensuring that our seismic research remains relevant and innovative, so that impacts are lessened, when they do inevitably occur.


That's what the Quake Centre is all about, partnering with such academic institutions and commercial operations to further knowledge and insights into the minutiae of earthquake engineering and its implications for the sectors involved and the public at large.


We celebrate all the amazing work being undertaken and the worthwhile results being achieved.
