Next Thursday, 25 September, our local Parklands office is hosting an information evening for the public and we would like to invite you to come along and hear several speakers give their update and thoughts as to their current take on geotechnical and local housing issues.
We believe this will be an excellent forum to hear some local keynote speakers.
- Nigel Dixon, Canterbury Geotest
After a 27-year tenure at the University of Canterbury’s Civil Engineering Department, Nigel has established his own geotechnical engineering firm, Canterbury Geotest, providing property owners with high quality, accurate geotechnical information.
- Taviri Ono, Westpac Mobile Mortgage Manager
Taviri will be joining us to provide some insight on Westpac’s ‘Beagle’ system, a tool to simplify how Westpac approaches lending against different categories of residential properties. By matching geotechnical data with information from insurance companies, Beagle enables Westpac to make lending decisions based on the costs of repair and rebuild, rather than being driven by a property’s technical category classification. This has moved to reduce the stigma attached to TC3 properties and has provided sellers and buyers alike with some much sought-after certainty.
- Ken Pope, RAS Project Manager
The Residential Advisory Service (RAS) provides free, impartial help to residential property owners who are facing challenges in getting their home repaired or rebuilt. The service helps you to understand the process you are going through and to make progress in your repairs or rebuild.
WHEN Thursday 25 September, 7pm
WHERE Waimairi Beach Golf Club, 460 Bower Avenue, Parklands
