With repairs and assessments, we helped rebuild Christchurch following the 2010 earthquakes
On September 4, 2010, New Zealand’s south island was hit by a 7.1-magnitude earthquake that caused widespread damage and power outages. About two months later, our team was brought in by Vero and AA Insurance to manage and coordinate the repair and rebuilding effort for a significant portion of their claims.
We assessed and dealt with damage properties, sourcing and managing a multitude of local engineers, architects, builders, and contractors. On February 22, 2011, when a devastating aftershock hit the city of Christchurch, we were able to rapidly respond with essential make-safe and emergency works.
By April 2011, the team had tackled more than 1,000 make-safe repairs (including many urgent demolition jobs), most of which were completed within one day of receiving the request. In September, the scope of work had expected around 2,500 residential projects, but that number had expanded five-fold.
On February 22, 2015—four years later—we officially wound up the contract, having resolved over 14,000 projects.
