Prominent Wellington property investor Ian Cassels is one of the first to adopt a new seismic monitoring system analysing how his buildings have performed in an earthquake.

The home-grown technology, Structural Health Monitoring System, was recently launched by Global Seismic Data, a Wellington company with seven local shareholders.

It could be installed also in key infrastructure, priority evacuation and lifeline routes, the company said.
