Over the last few months, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has published several technical guides for repairing and rebuilding houses and walls affected by the Canterbury earthquakes. The guidance includes:
- tools to help the engineering and construction sector to ‘Build it Right’
- an information sheet for homeowners and guidance on the repair and rebuild of multi-unit residential buildings in Canterbury
- technical engineering guidance on the assessment and design of residential retaining walls in the Port Hills area of Christchurch.
