Tectonus envisions truly resilient cities by significantly improving the performance of earthquake-prone buildings. It provides a cost-effective system that doesn’t require repair or replacement following a seismic event.
Founded by Professor Pierre Quenneville in 2016, Tectonus is a spinoff start-up focused on the need for self-centring solutions as identified during the 2011 Christchurch earthquake tragedy. With two commercialised categories to date (structural devices and storage tanks devices); serving commercial buildings and liquid storage tank markets, Tectonus solutions have been implemented in greenfield projects including the likes of Nelson Airport, Hutt Valley Health Hub, Cathedral College and Fast + Epp HQ building in Vancouver, with more projects yet to be deployed.
