Christchurch – Build Back Smarter guides have been published by Beacon pathways.
Beacon has developed guides to building back smarter for Christchurch residents. These have been produced by Christchurch City Council and are being distributed to Christchurch residents. Christchurch earthquake repairs and rebuilds provide an opportunity for residents to go a step further and consider improving their home’s comfort and efficiency.
There are two guides:
- For those building a new home: Designing and Building a New Home, provides a quick overview of what to consider when designing a new home. It is intended to help homeowners in their discussions with designers and builders.
- For those repairing a home: Repairing Your Earthquake-Damaged Home, identifies the opportunities to improve a home’s performance offered by typical earthquake repairs. It also indicates the financial, health and value benefits of the improvements, gives a cost estimate and suggests the steps to take to investigate the options.
The guides are available electronically or in hard copy from the Christchurch City Council website
