Rebuilding Christchurch’s future

RebuildPersonally for me, living amongst it in a city in the rebuild is quite invigorating. In the weekend after returning from a bike ride in Bottle Lake Forest (right on our doorstep) and taking a quick ride around our local neighbourhood I counted nine properties being rebuilt within 300 metres of our own home.

This for me says it all, there is life after an earthquake! With so many new homes being built this simply reinforces that people’s confidence is returning and I think it is the most positive message any community can have following such a devastating event.

It would be fair to say now, that this is a city-wide trend as we move from the more basic EQC/EQR repairs into the more substantial remediation program and new builds. The city is abuzz of tradies and contractors working tirelessly to see our neighbourhoods restored to normality. Prior to daybreak a week or two ago there were 6 concrete mixers lined up in our street to pour the new floor slab for one of my neighbour’s houses – apparently there were another two after that as well. And just last week after returning home from attending the national Harcourts conference (where I am pleased to report that both Harcourts Gold and several of the Gold team collected national awards) the framework of the house on the corner seemed to appear almost overnight.

Living, working and daily witnessing the positivity of the city moving forward into a restorative mode is something that I am really enjoying being a part of – growth is good!

So I say good on you Canterbury, we can fix it and the future is bright for us all.

Enjoy the week and keep warm – I’ll certainly be wrapping up well for my bike ride these coming mornings.
