EQC "Rapid Assessments" have begun.

EQC's new "rapid" way of assessing properties started today in the suburbs most affected by earthquake damage, including Avonside. Some houses in our area, and street, have already been done (see next post).

The object of the exercise is to take a short look at a property to "prioritise needs and repairs and give residents the time frame for when EQC will be coming back for a full assessment." The end result of this approach is to establish a preliminary assessment, putting a property into one of five categories (the next post will have a copy of an actual assessment).

The timetable for the assessments is:

from today (11th of March):
  • Avondale
  • Aranui
  • Avonside
  • Bexley
  • Bromley
  • Dallington
  • North Linwood
  • Mt Pleasant
  • Redcliffs
  • Wainoni
Starting on Monday assessments will be undertaken in:
  • Ferrymead
  • Linwood
  • New Brighton
  • Phillipstown
  • Richmond
  • Shirley
  • Westhaven
  • Woolston
You can find more at the EQC web site here. If you download the pdf file (here) you will find a map on the last page showing the order in which areas will be assessed.
