Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Rebuild
This ICN project support activity is a partnership between ICN NZ and ICN Vic to help provide additional local (Australia and New Zealand) resources to collaborate in the rebuild of Christchurch.
Christchurch Earthquake Reconstruction Why is ICN involved? The scale of the Christchurch earthquake damage is such that New Zealand does not have the resources necessary to permit a rebuild in an acceptable time frame. The ICN is the well equipped organisation to identify and connect the necessary best fit, additional supply chains, skills and services requirements to achieve a speedy and cost effective recovery of Christchurch. Australia and New Zealand have along history in helping one another in disaster assistance and the recovery projects that follow provide an environment for innovation and new technology, as well as the advantage of having a number of common Australian and New Zealand building & construction standards.
The key Agencies involved Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) was set up in March 2011, by the New Zealand Government as the lead recovery agency coordinating the activities of Government, councils, and the people of Canterbury. As part of CERA, SCIRT (Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team) has been set up and is responsible for the reinstatement of roads and essential services using an alliance team made up of Fletcher Construction JV with McConnell Dowell, Downer EDI, Fulton Hogan and City Works, as well as most of the major civil contractors in the country. Also as part of CERA, CCDU – Christchurch Central Development Unit was set up to manage the CBD reconstruction activity. CERA is also managing the demolition of all un repairable buildings using contractors from Dunedin to Auckland.
Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Rebuild • Recovering from a natural disaster on this scale in New Zealand is uncharted territory for individuals, communities, businesses, Councils and Government. • Successful recovery requires leadership and partnership between central government, local government, Te Rununga o Ngai Tahu, NGO’s, communities and business.
Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Rebuild How does ICN facilitate the interaction of Australian and New Zealand companies to achieve a cohesive recovery program. Through opportunity notifications via email alerts (companies listing their capability profiles on ICN Gateway), newsletters, and project briefing sessions to ANZ industry, briefings and meetings with Government Agencies, Local Government Authorities, and industry associations. Identifying supplier capability of over 70,000 companies listed on the ICN, as well as those that maybe sitting outside of the Gateway. Profile sharing between our 27 offices around Australia and 3 in NZ including our key Christchurch office.
The damage bill • The total cost of the rebuild, based on current estimates is now around $40b • This equates to approximately Residential 10% 25% 50% 15% Government & Community Assets Commercial Infrastructure
Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Rebuild • • • • • • • • • More than 70% of CBD of Christchurch is being demolished 124 kms of water mains and 300km of sewer pipes damaged 500,000 tonnes of liquefaction silt removed 600 kms of roads seriously damaged 50,000 road surface defects 55% of secondary students sharing with other schools 13 out of 36 hotels operating 185 lives tragically lost 459,000 EQC claims
Rebuild timeline • • • • • September 2010 – February 2011 – Two significant earthquakes hit the Canterbury region of the South Island of New Zealand March 2011 – CERA is set up by the New Zealand Government 2011 – current – Demolition of over 1200 commercial buildings with over 80 buildings (some over 10 levels in height still to come down) Demolition was due to be completed in April 2012! – New Zealand Government were expecting the rebuild to be take between 5 – 7 years. – Original cost was estimated at $30B NZD but in March 2013 this was increased to $40B NZD. Dec 2013 – Construction commences with the first of the Government projects – The Burwood Hospital, commenced Late December 2013, which forms part of the $600M NZD rebuilding of two hospitals for Christchurch (Burwood and the Christchurch Hospital). Jan 2014 – NZ Government announce that 9 out of the 16 Anchor projects will go to construction in 2014
Next Steps for ICN in the Rebuild activity – Work with our ICN NZ office, New Zealand Government’s Ministry of Business, Industry and Employment, CERA (Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority – including their rebuild procurement managers) CCDU, SCIRT and CDC (Canterbury Development Corporation), and Christchurch rebuild project proponents and project directors to identify shortfalls in construction resources in the rebuild that could be taken up by Victorian / Australian industry capability. – Create and promote defined pathway to collaboration for industry to take into the rebuild. – Match make Victorian / Australian industry capability with NZ Industry to from collaborative partnerships to increase NZ rebuild construction capacity. – Promote opportunities in the rebuild for Victorian / Australian and New Zealand constructors that ICN believes are being overlooked.
Next Steps for ICN in the Rebuild activity – Cont. • • • • • As the rebuild, particularly the CBD of Christchurch, where over 70% of the city is in the final stages of being demolished, heads into the major construction phase in 2014/ 15, the demand for construction services will increase dramatically at which point the NZ construction resources are expected to be short supply. Interestingly of the $40B NZD, and an estimated $20B NZD is for domestic housing which remains an area for consideration. It is important to note the private sector reconstruction continues to progress quickly and this may impact on local construction resources. In discussions held last month in Christchurch with our ICN NZ colleagues and key stakeholders involved in the rebuild, some collaborative opportunities have been identified in some of the supply chains for initial projects. ICN has successfully introduced key Victorian / Australian companies , with millions of dollars in contracts being awarded to date and a number of heads of agreement contracts have been signed under collaboration agreement between Australian and NZ companies .
Next Steps for ICN in the Rebuild activity – Cont. • • • • Continue to work with the NZ Government and Earthquake agencies, Anchor project owners, developers and project managers to ensure early identification of issues, supply chain gaps, and opportunities for ANZ capability. Continue to work with the Christchurch Project owners and Project Managers to suggest they list their projects onto ICN Gateway to enable ANZ suppliers the ability to register their capability individual or a combined collaborative capability onto the project. Continue on from the discussions last month in Christchurch around strengthening ANZ supply chains to those existing in the rebuild. Proposed upcoming ICN lead mission to Christchurch of Australian companies to include presentations by the lead agencies, as well as meet the buyer/ supplier sessions for collaborative opportunities, project overview and city tour, meetings with project managers (Government and private projects), and developers.

Technical Category 1 (TC1) Properties in TC1 (grey) are unlikely to experience significant land damage from liquefaction in future earthquakes. Standard concrete slabs and timber floors are acceptable for foundation repairs or rebuilds. Technical Category 2 (TC2) For properties in TC2 (yellow), minor to moderate land damage from liquefaction is possible in future significant earthquakes. Lightweight construction, for example corrugated iron not tiled roofs, or enhanced foundations such as more robust floor slabs that better tie the structure together will be required for foundation repairs or rebuilds. Technical Category 3 (TC3) For properties in TC3 (blue), moderate to significant land damage from liquefaction is possible in future significant earthquakes. Foundation solutions should be based on site specific geotechnical investigation and specific engineering foundation design where foundation repairs or rebuilds are needed. This might involve deep pile solutions.
Earthquake reconstruction scope 460 kilometres of roads and essential services (water, sewer, storm water, power, phone, and communications) to be replaced in the CBD area alone. There will be now 17 major projects & precincts constructed to form part of the new CBD (9 of which have been announced by New Zealand’s Minister in charge of the Earthquake Recovery – Minister Brownlee back in January 2014, to go to construction in 2014). Estimated 700+ new commercial buildings in the CBD generally with a maximum of 7 stories to replace the 1200+ buildings being demolished. The Commercial Buildings will have a much larger footprint to offset the height constraints. 23,000 – 25,000 new houses to replace the red zoned un repairable properties and to cater for the expected 30,000 additional work force required to meet the construction needs.
Innovation in the Earthquake Reconstruction The main constraint for the reconstruction effort is the availability of sufficient resources to permit a speedy recovery. New efficient construction methods and more offsite factory style modular construction will mean better use of available trade skills. Current initiatives to assist the reconstruction process: • Modular housing options are being offered in the new Housing Innovation Park that will permit offsite indoor construction thus taking some pressure off the site building trades resources. • Offsite prefabrication of structural components for commercial buildings to speed up erection process. (Steel and Tilt Slab Panel etc.) • Modular kitchens and bathrooms for hotels, motels etc.
The new CBD Precincts New Zealand’s Crown and Christchurch City Council agreed recovery cost sharing arrangements for the Anchor Projects, and the repair and replacement of the city’s essential horizontal infrastructure. • Key announcement made June 27th 2013 • $2.9B from Crown ($1.1B of projects in the CBD) • $1.9B committed ($765M of projects) by Christchurch City Council

Australian Industry – rebuild considerations • Earthquake Anxiety impact on development • Some companies have pulled out of Christchurch due to lack of work as a result of delays in construction. • Businesses interested in working collaboratively on the rebuild need to have capabilities that are current and have commercial experience with their products and services. • Solution based capability is sort after. • Precinct construction expertise is well regarded, not only for building but also for total precinct project management, including handling precinct construction logistics.
