Christchurch’s retail restoration post-earthquake

Christchurch’s rebuilding process is underway, with
one retail hub, the Palms shopping centre, announcing a September 8 re-opening

Following the smaller earthquake on June 13, further
damage has been done to the centre and more remedial work has been required,
including re-checking the car park and the centre columns, flooring and
plastering repairs, travelator repairs and re-fixing damaged guttering between

Substantial work involving the addition of
carbon-fibre wraps to support 400 columns in the centre started after the
February 22 earthquake, and has held up well, according to

A shortage of supermarkets and petrol stations in the
eastern suburbs of the city means that the reopening of a supermarket in the
mall would be welcomed by local residents.

We have clients in Christchurch and we wish them, and
the residents of Christchurch generally, well as they rebuild their city and
their lives following the devastating event of 22nd February.
