Pretty depressing :( Sad to see all the building as they were, knowing the devastation there is now.

Not sure that all buildings are marked--I'm pretty sure that the Amuri car park is slated for demolition, but there's no marker on it.

even sadder is the map showing the whole suburbs destined for abandonment, it really brings home the devastation. And there are still more areas to be decided as well.

I hope that some recycling will be utilised from all those poor munted houses. Pictures on the media show machines crashing through buildings destroying what looks like perfectly good windows, doors plumbing fittings etc. Obvious caveats would be structure safety, contamination etc.

There is going to be vast need for all of this in the rebuild. We are a small nation with limited resources. I am sure kiwi ingenuity could make an impact on the ever-spiralling costs of this disaster...

It costs a lot to recover items too though.

Little Red digger, none of those map links work for me. I keep getting blocked by something with Fulton Hogan and web access on it.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Typically the companies that get the contract to do the demolition work can salvage whatever they feel they will make money from. This is usually factored into their charge for demolition work. This was why there was some flak over early demolition contracts being let to companies from outside Christchurch, and there were building owners upset that "their" materials were taken.

One building skip company in Christchurch sorts through their skips after collection, for recycling and or reuse, and a huge percentage of what is originally thrown away is saved. They ususally make money on it despite the labour involved.

Really interesting map, thanks Simkin. Plus there's the buildings that have self-demolished, or have already been demolished, the Cathedral and the Southern Blues Bar on Manchester are a couple that spring to mind. ChCh before and after will look totally different. Plus all the houses that have been red zoned, and the orange zoned houses that are designated as red in the next few months.

I don't see Mickey Finns on the demo map, does anyone know if it is still standing?

Sorry about that I thought it would work for all. I work for Fulton Hogan and we get email updates on the situation regularly.
I guess any thing good I can copy and paste in future.

Hi. I worked out where I went wrong with posting the web sites. I copied and pasted from the email we got at work, rather than just putting the web site adress in the post.

I have friends that are in the red zone and want to stay, and likewise others that are green and have all ready left.
any body in town who needs building, engineering or earthmoving advise give me a Pm and I will be able to sort somthing out for them.
We are relativly unaffected at Oxford so far and feel so privileged.

I reckon the government helping out is marvellous and will be a relief to many, though the red zone at Kairaki Beach was a bolt out of the blue. Our friend's parents were full ahead with their rebuilding plans there, so I'm not sure what happens now.

I was thinking that there will be green zoned sections for sale now, with people leaving ChCh and their houses demolished, so hopefully red zone people who want to stay will be able to buy a section not too far from where they were.

We have friends zoned orange in Brooklands, only a few down from where a red zone begins. They had already purchased a 10-acre section near us before September and put their home on the market. They've finally been told their house is a write-off, so for them it will be a huge advantage to be zoned red. If they are zoned green, then hopefully they will still be able to sell their section privately.

Anyway, if they are looking for a contractor, I will definitely suggest they get in touch with you, Little Red Digger.
