Wellington Branch Event - Earth Shattering News?

03 May 17

4:30 PM-7:30 PM

Wellington, New Zealand

Given the recent Kaikoura quakes, why is it that a number of modern Wellington multi-storey buildings with close to or above 100%NBS ratings are now facing demolition or major refurbishment, while older counterparts having seemingly come through unscathed? Is reclaimed land really the issue? Are building standards at fault? Are shonky engineering, poor materials and construction techniques the cause, or does the real issue lie somewhere else? Get the real oil from a very experienced engineering expert where the issues lie, what you need to look for and consider from both your personal work/life perspective as well as that of your clients.

From a seasoned insurance claims expert, hear from his direct involvement with Christchurch & Kaikoura what has been learnt - be it from the perspective of: building owner; tenant; financier; professional advisor; or member of the public. What policies and issues have come to the fore, how the insurance industry is adjusting and what you should know in order to best protect yourself and advise your clients.

From a valuer’s perspective, hear about the changing face of EQC valuations following the Canterbury earthquakes. What is covered by EQC, how has the valuation process changed as a result of the Canterbury experience and the challenge of meeting EQC’s needs.

Come and join us to hear first-hand from the experts and by all means bring your queries for what should prove to be a very enlightening evening that shouldn’t be missed. Light refreshments and nibbles to follow with an opportunity to network.
