SCIRT Learning Legacy
The sequence of earthquakes that occurred in Christchurch and wider Canterbury during 2010 and 2011 resulted in very significant damage and disruption to the Christchurch horizontal infrastructure networks.
In response, Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) was formed and is responsible for repairing and replacing Christchurch's three-waters (water, wastewater and stormwater), roading and bridge networks, as well as some retaining walls and stopbanks.
SCIRT is an alliance between Christchurch City Council, Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA), New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), City Care, Downer, Fletcher Construction, Fulton Hogan, and McConnell Dowell.
The SCIRT Learning Legacy project was initiated in collaboration with UC QuakeCentre, Resilient Organisations and UC CEISMIC, in order that all the learnings from SCIRT's earthquake repair and replacement programme are captured, documented, and disseminated.
