When the grounds shook during the 2010/2011 Canterbury earthquakes in New Zealand, we were right there alongside our clients and community. The building we were in no longer exists and, after six years in temporary accommodation, we were delighted to re-join the heart of the city.
Supported by our multi-disciplinary team around New Zealand and the world, we’ve been helping to rebuild and protect structures, equipment and infrastructure in Christchurch from future disaster. Low damage design, base isolation, resilient infrastructure – implementing these in ways that haven’t been widely used before. And adopting green building design and technologies that reduce operating and environmental costs over their lifetime.
Our Southern Regional Manager, Letitia Drury, reflects on the past 10 years and what we've achieved together with our clients and communities.
"10 years on it is amazing to see the transformation of our city, the vibrant public spaces, landmark buildings and the creative and innovative technologies that have been brought to these…and we’re not done yet! There’s still plenty more to achieve on this journey to realise the full potential of a modern, resilient and sustainable city. We're super excited to keep working alongside our clients and communities as the beating heart of Otautahi gets stronger and stronger!"
