CERA - geotech videos on sink holes and foundations

CERA have released two more videos with geotech engineer Jan Kupec. In these videos he gives explanations of:
  • sinkholes and poses questions about them ( e.g. will they affect the land or the house later on?)
  • options for rebuilding - providing a safe and secure foundation for houses in Canterbury by first looking at how houses fail and then what is needed to prevent this happening.
The videos can be found by clicking on the name of the subject you are interested in.
In the Options for Rebuilding video Jan Kupec frequently refers to a booklet Guidance on house repairs and reconstruction following the Canterbury earthquake available from the Department of Building and Housing. You can download it from here.
