EQR is setting up Hub offices in communities affected by the earthquake. We estimate that a dozen or more will be required to oversee the reconstruction and repair work in the three council areas of Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri. In addition to EQR project management personnel, Hubs house Community Liaison Officers to provide assistance to homeowners and provide a place for council officers, consultants and community and government service groups to work from.
Each Hub oversees Satellite Street Sheds located in the zones where work is being carried out. These accommodate EQR-nominated supervisors who are the primary contacts for affected homeowners and the contractors appointed to undertake the work.
The first Hubs have been set up in areas where we have the most claims information and where there are no land damage issues that prevent work from starting on houses.
Until the hub office contacts you to arrange your repairs, please direct all enquiries to 0800 326 243 (0800 DAMAGE). The Earthquake Recovery project is managed from a central office in Christchurch. Operational issues can be directed to 03 341 9900.
