Tuesday August 16 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

With the Olympics in full swing one school in the north-west decided it would join in on the fun, hosting its own version all last week. Look to page 10 to see which country took home the gold. Residents fighting to stop a multi-national company expanding in their neighbourhood will have to wait a bit longer to find out if David has slain Goliath. See page 7. On pages 4 and 5 we meet Neil Andrews. He is one enthusiastic modeller and has created a replica of a one-time railway in Northland, down to the tiniest detail, and is now working on another of a small French town. Burnside Primary School pupils will be looking very flash at future sporting events after a fantastic fundraising effort by the PTA and parents resulted in new uniforms.

Motorway build to begin

CONSTRUCTION ON a $240m extension to the Northern Motorway will begin in October with the city council and New Zealand Transport Agency announcing who will build it. It will be built east of Belfast, between the Waimakariri River and Cranford St in a joint venture between NZTA, city council, Fulton Hogan, Aurecon and Jacobs. The alliance will also construct a new road between QE II Dr and Cranford St, referred to as the Northern Arterial Extension. It will also upgrade Cranford St to four lanes to Innes Rd. The projects together will form the Christchurch Northern Corridor. NZTA southern regional director Jim Harland said the new section of the Northern Motorway is critical to improving journey times for commuters, many of whom have rebuilt homes in North Canterbury. It is also vital for the continued growth of Christchurch as the South Island’s main freight distribution centre and export hub.

STARTING SOON: Construction of a $240m extension to the Northern Motorway will begin in October.

The Christchurch Northern Corridor includes: •An upgrade of QEII Drive to four lanes between Main North Rd and Innes Rd. •Better access to the growing industrial zone area around Belfast. •Construction of a third northbound lane on the Waimakariri Bridge through to Tram Rd. •A shared pedestrian/ cyclist path along the length of the project. •Improvements to the public transport network and efficiency on Main North Rd. Detailed design for the new motorway is currently being completed and construction is expected to get underway in mid to late October. It is expected to take four years to complete. Mr Harland said the alliance

is a great example of central and local government working together to create a safe, reliable transport network that meets the needs of all road users, including cyclists, pedestrians and those using public transport.

In Brief REPAIRS BEGIN Residents of Grants Rd and Proctor St in Papanui will have SCIRT crews working in their area for about eight weeks. They are replacing three sections of an earthquake-damaged wastewater main. Work has started on Grants Rd with a trench being dug to remove and replace a broken pipe. Part of Grants Rd around the worksite will be closed until the work has been completed. MOTOR-CYCLIST HURT A man was taken to Christchurch Hospital in a moderate condition after he was knocked off his motorcycle in Strowan last Tuesday. St John sent an ambulance to the scene on Heaton St at about 6.50pm. The man, in his 50s, was assessed at the scene and taken to hospital for further treatment. FUNDING SOUGHT Papanui resident Angus McWilliam has applied for $518 from the Shirley-Papanui Community Board’s discretionary response fund to attend the junior Tall Blacks training camp and under-23 nationals. Angus, 16, attends Middleton Grange. Burnside High School student Connor Hill has applied for $200 from the board’s youth development fund to participate in the Spirit of Adventure trophy voyage from October 30 to November 3. The board will decide tomorrow whether to approve the funding.

One man and his 1000 dreams „„ By Roy Sinclair NEIL ANDREWS leads the way down precarious steps to a seemingly underground room. He flicks on a light switch. I am wowed by a high viaduct spanning a realistic gorge. My eyes are led to tall forests, tree ferns galore and a painted backdrop depicting a stormy sky. “This is what I do,” he says. “It is not what I do in my spare time. “I mow the lawns in my spare time.”  The room was purpose-built for the 9mm (scale 9mm to the foot) layout representative of a one-time railway in Northland.  In his garage he is working on a second, portable, layout. This is a narrow-gauge railway based on French townscapes. Model railways is an interest he could not be without.  “When I met my partner, Helen, I told her it is me and my trains. They are inseparable.  “She accepted that which was great.”   He describes railway modelling “as a thousand dreams held together by a hundred unfinished jobs. In other words, a degree of chaos.” “Part of the fascination is

HAND-MADE: Model builder, Neil Andrews and his miniature creation of early last century Northland. ​ delving into history to discover how it all would have looked like early last century,” Mr Andrews said. He always liked to do things with his hands. He enjoyed art at school – and building things. Even when he had clockwork

railways he was always cutting up cardboard boxes to make buildings. He recalls scoring designs on pieces of wood to make boats. Railways became another part of it. Getting into more serious rail-

way modelling during the late 1950s, there was not much stuff available and if it was he didn’t have the money. If he wanted it he made it. “My mother used to take me to the railway station. I remember being in my pushchair watching

the Lyttelton trains come and go. “Then at primary school I was quite capable of making an Ecclass electric locomotive with the distinctive air compressor tanks across the front. Everyone could recognise it.”  Later, any new gadget at his Canterbury University laboratory would be first examined to how it would be useful on the model railway.  “Then we would work out how it was intended to be used.” His workplace became known as “the model train laboratory.”   That’s what people who visited talked about.  He travelled to model railroad conventions in the United States, becoming a member of the R.G.S. East Hon3 club.   He visited huge model railway shows in Cologne and Miniature Wonderland in Hamburg. “In Germany a model railway is like a dishwasher. Everyone has to have one. And most offerings are German-made. They are excellent.  “On one European trip Helen and I were forced off the road by Tour de France officials. “We had to divert into a backwater countryside.

BUILDING: A train layout under construction and a G-scale layout at last year’s Christchurch Model Train Show.

“There we found towns of beautiful buildings with terracotta roofs. We had discovered the romance of the French countryside. “Anything French is different. If you see a French car you know it is French because it looks nothing like anything else. It is the same with railways. “Their narrow gauge railways were basically portable. They could be picked up and laid beside a road. “That really intrigued me. Narrow gauge secondary lines were introduced to boost the network

of French railways.’’ The unplanned detour instigated his French narrow gauge layout. “One develops a modeller’s mind.   “A modeller will typically think how it would look in miniature?” He talks about Hamburg’s mind-boggling Miniature Wonderland. “It’s absolutely intriguing. It’s a huge collection that is pushing the boundaries of technology and inspiring manufacturers to pick up on it with new products.” “The model aircraft must represent the peak of model

building.’’ “The model trains have been running for so long the track is wearing out.” The closest we have in Christchurch is the annual big model train Show, this year being held over the weekend of October 1 and 2. The venue is Pioneer Stadium in Lyttelton St, Spreydon. It is the show’s 25th anniversary so promises to be special. Mr Andrews was an instigator of the event, starting a model train show at Hagley Community College and then expanding to

the Horticultural Society hall. Then, the Christchurch Model Railway Exhibition Society was formed and took over. Its growth took it to Pioneer Stadium where it has been ever since. At its peak the show attracted 10,000 people over the two days.  “It’s about its optimum size.   “Considering our modest Christchurch population we do a pretty good job,” he said. This year’s show will help those wanting to get into the hobby.  “We will have beginners’ train sets and heaps of demonstrations. Find out the best models to buy

and learn how to make things. “Technology will be to the fore. This is enhancing the hobby and drawing younger people in. They can operate a railway from a PC or mobile phone, utilising wi-fi and DCC (digital control systems).” He says model railway people are an enthusiastic bunch. They will do their utmost to share what they know. Andrews will be on the demonstrations desk. It is likely he will let slip how to disguise a lot of money spent on the hobby within the weekly household bills.

Cycle lane marked „„ By Andrew King A STRETCH of road in Harewood that was causing confusion has finally been marked correctly by the city council. Where Gardiners Rd changes from 50km/h to 80km/h a small footpath was built to the left of the traffic islands, however, it was not clear what it was installed for. Some cyclists used the path to avoid vehicles coming close to them, while others just continued on the road. Now, it has been labelled as a cycleway with marking to indicate that, after the ShirleyPapanui Community Board requested the confusion be cleared up. Board deputy chairman Aaron Keown questioned why it took a request from the community board for it to happen. “It is obvious that cyclists should move to the left instead of competing with trucks and other vehicles on the road in the narrow bit between the two islands,” he said. A city council spokeswoman said it was not “designed as a

Let’s keep Chch fluoride-free Former personal trainer John Verd was born in Christchurch’s sister city Seattle, United States, and moved to New Zealand in January last year. He writes this week’s opinion piece on fluoridation I love Christchurch water! It’s one of the many exceptional things we’d heard about the Garden City before moving here. So I was naturally concerned to learn about proposed changes to our water system. I discovered at an early age how location could affect water quality. When my grand-mother moved to the Cascade Mountains near Seattle, she said that the tap water there had a ”sweetness” to it. She was absolutely right there was a huge difference between our aquifers in Spokane and her spring water in Snoqualmie. It wasn’t until much later that I paid any attention to what is actually in our water. I’d heard people protest against fluoridation, but wrote them off as paranoid con-

spiracy theorists. It wasn’t until becoming a personal trainer that I actually questioned the practice. The research was eye opening. Our water is being treated with an industrial waste product called hydrofluorosilicic acid. This chemical is a by-product of the phosphate fertiliser industry. Although classified as hazardous waste, it is barrelled up and sold, unrefined, to communities across the country. This is the fluoride in public water. Former vice president and senior chemist at the United States Environmental Protection Agency headquarters, Dr William Hirzy, had this to say about it: “If this stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s

amazing.” Hydrofluorosilicic acid is far different from the sodium fluoride, which is not for ingestion, commonly used in toothpaste. This begs the question: Why would they use this dangerous form of fluoride? A likely reason is cost. Because it costs corporations many thousands of dollars per tonne to neutralise and dispose of it, they instead sell it to municipalities as a ‘product’. Chemist and worldrenowned fluoride researcher Dr Paul Connett lectured in Christchurch in July 2016. He listed 50 human studies

finding that elevated fluoride exposure is associated with reduced IQ. Christchurch has managed to remain fluoride free for the last 30 years, but new legislation may allow for fluoridation by 2018 unless the public demands a place at the table in this decision. And that’s what is keeping me up at night. Do you, like John Verd, stay awake at night worried about fluoridation? Should we allow fluoridation of our water? Share your views with us.

Tuesday August 16 2016

A reader responds to an article on a petition launched to fix the Harewood Rd intersection Michael Stirling – Harewood I’ve lived in Harewood since 2002, and can honestly say without doubt this is one of the worst intersections in Christchurch, particularly since the 2011 earthquakes whereby traffic has virtually doubled as more and more businesses and home-owners relocated to the west side of the city. It is just like the Grim Reaper advert on television a few years back, where people start sweating profusely at

the wheel before closing their eyes and hope for a miracle crossing. The problem is (both ways) that drivers on Gardiners Rd and Breens Rd have to take calculated risks across four lanes of Harewood Rd (being two east-bound and two west-bound). The number of times I’ve experienced near

misses is well into the 30s. I’ve been stopped in my tracks many times as I head into work, and have even given up tooting now, as it’s utterly pointless, you simply can’t educate some people. Sure, I can understand their frustrations and lack of patience (particularly after sitting idle

9

for 3-4min at the ‘stop’ signs) and they end up virtually playing Russian roulette, praying they will cross safely without getting hit. The simple solution is traffic lights – just as the city council installed at the other end of Gardiners Rd – on the Sawyers Arms Rd intersection, which incidentally is only two lanes wide and not four, so go figure. In my view, it’s only a matter of time before there is a fatality (and I sincerely hope it is not me or my family, or anyone else for that matter). So hopefully the city council will come to their alert senses, smell the coffee (or should that be tar) before they end up with blood on their hands.

  FLAME FILES

Give yourself the best chance of escape „„ By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer BY RECENT standards the past week has been remarkably quiet. We’ve still been to plenty of false alarms, ambulance assistance calls and car crashes but fires, apart from the inevitable kitchen cooking fires (two this week), have been few in number.  So let’s have a look at those

things that can make our lives safer from fire that are easy to arrange in any home. Firstly, and by far most importantly, is the use of smoke alarms. I grew up in the days before widespread plastics and foams. So when I was a kid it took about 10min for any fire inside a house to go from ignition to flashover (the state where the entire contents of a room are on fire).

Now, with the proliferation of oil-based products (those plastics and foams) in homes the time to flashover is reduced to 3min. That’s where smoke alarms, recommended in every bedroom, hallway and living room, are vital to give us the earliest possible warning of fire so we can escape well before that 3min is up. Because if you don’t, you’re probably in real trouble.

SCIRT programme on the home straight SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is almost complete and will finish in December. Most of our repairs involve fixing the city’s underground pipe networks with only small amount of our work focused on roads. Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair roads to a reliable and serviceable standard. The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood • Fixing the Northern Relief, one of Christchurch’s biggest wastewater pipes running through Fendalton, Merivale and St Albans is more than halfway through and will be completed at the end of the year. • Essential wastewater repairs in Aikmans Road in Merivale have begun and will be completed at the end of the year. • Ongoing repairs to the wastewater networks in Fendalton, Strowan, Papanui and Bryndwr are due to finish next month. • Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the SCIRT team.

Programme funded by

After your own escape, making sure everyone else in the house is aware, is the first priority before having a meeting place where all can be accounted for, and phoning 111 by cellphone or neighbour’s landline. Along with smoke alarms these are the basics of a home escape plan. If we all had one I’d investigate far fewer fatal fires. That would be fantastic!

SCHOOLS

New school bus routes RANGI RURU Girls’ School has announced a trial of a new Red Bus services for students in south-west Canterbury. The initiative came from parents who were having difficulties getting their children to school using existing routes. Principal Sandra Hastie said the school is very supportive of effective public transport and having students on a bus, using bus lanes as well as other measures. “There’s already too little time and too much stress in many lives, so if we can alleviate that for parents and students that’s a good thing,” she said. The bus, which is identifiable by a ‘Rangi Ruru school bus’ sign, departs Burnham at 6.35am, with five points from which students can be picked up or get off at Rolleston, Lincoln University, Lincoln, Tai Tapu and Halswell.

The bus arrives at the school by 8.10am and returns at 4pm for pick up. It ends the day in Burnham at 5.20pm. Rangi Ruru business manager Neil Templeton said Red Bus has been very co-operative during the development of the service trial. “We are open to suggestions for improvements during the trial and are encouraging parents and students to give us feedback.” Fares are $7.50 return or $4 oneway and students use their Cando Card as they would for any metro bus. The card can be topped up with the driver. Dr Hastie said the service was also available to students from other Christchurch schools and parents should contact Rangi Ruru to register their son or daughter. She added that, all going well, the intention was to continue the service.

CBHS advance to rugby final „„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’ High School have advanced to the grand final of the UC Championship following a 10-3 win over Nelson College. The team made amends for last year’s shock 17-25 semi-final exit to Shirley Boys’ High School. They will play the team that broke their hearts 12 months ago in Saturday’s grand final at Rugby Park. Shirley defeated round-robin winners Christ’s College 17-14 at Upper in the other semi-final. The teams also have recent history, they met on August 7. CBHS survived a late penalty attempt from Shirley before a try in extra time sealed a tough 19-13 victory. “They proved in beating Christ’s College that they’re going to be a really serious threat. They played very well against us the other week so we’re going to have to be at our very best because they have some seriously good players in that team,” said CBHS coach Mike Drury. The win over Nelson College was played in trying conditions. CBHS came out with intent, dominating the early possession and turning down penalty goal attempts in search of the game’s first try. They were rewarded for their efforts when Mosese Fifita

SPORTS

TRY TIME: Mosese Fifita grabbed the only try of the game in his team’s 10-3 victory over Nelson College. ​

At a glance: Christchurch BHS: 10 (Mosese Fifita try; Alex Harford 1 con, 1pen) Nelson College: 3 (William Havili 1 pen) barged his way over the line with 10min to play in the first half. First-five Alex Harford converted and then extended the lead to 10 with a penalty conversion before the break. Nelson played with the wind in the second period and narrowed the margin to seven through a William Havili penalty. Christchurch executed an

outstanding game plan in the second half, not letting the visitors back into the game through strategic kicking. “I thought that second-five Ben Chippendale played a very astute game. He showed the quality of a senior player on the team. He racked off some pretty substantial yards and put them on the back foot a number of times,”

said Drury. Meanwhile, in the plate section of the competition it will be Timaru Boys’ High School hosting Marlborough Boys’ College in Saturday’s final. Timaru defeated defending Plate champions Burnside High School 25-15, while Marlborough overpowered Waimea Combined 19-0.

Rower off to world champs „„ By Annabelle Dick A CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High School student is in Rotterdam, Netherlands, to compete in a world junior rowing championship. Jack Lopas, 17, of Little River, is a part of the New Zealand junior double sculls team. “Both my parents, uncles and grandad rowed so I got into it through them. My grandad and dad took me out on a single one day to have a go and I really enjoyed so it went from there,” Jack said. He started rowing at 14 and moved from Lincoln High School to Christchurch Boys and joined the rowing squad soon after. There he teamed up with fellow student Angus Foster to create a title-winning duo. “This year at club nationals we won the under-19 double sculls and at Maadi we won the under-18 double. There we were also a part of teams that won the under-18 quad and placed third in the under-18 eight,” Jack said. He also won the under-18 single and was selected to trial with the New Zealand junior rowing squad. During his trial, he managed to beat Olympic medallist Hamish Bond’s 2km rowing machine record he set

SPORTS

WINNERS: Cotswold School’s boys and girls basketball teams won their tournaments recently. Back row: Jack Hollingworth, Carter Rhodes, Milla Downing, Francis Varga, Anna Scullion, Paige Eder, Ariella Brown, Jonty Sincock and Liam Mytton. Front row: Kaia Cameron, Jed Smith, Jade Cotter, Lauren Mountford and Mitchell Corkery.

UPGRADE: The Shirley Hawks clubrooms are set for an upgrade following a $10,000 win ​

Success for Cotswold TWO COTSWOLD School basketball teams have qualified to play other finalists in the CPSSA sports competition. In the North-West Zone Indoor Basketball Tournament, the Cotswold boys team had a comefrom-behind win against Kaiapoi North. The Cotswold girls team could not be separated from Paparoa Street School and had to settle for a first place tie. Cotswold’s Anna Scullion, 10, said it was a little disappointing to end the game tied. “It was a gut-wrenching and intense final,” she said. Jack Hollingworth, 10, said they had to give it their all on the court to overcome Kaiapoi. “We had to try our best because

Kaiapoi North gave us a good final,” he said. Mitchell Corkery, 11, said: “I was looking forward to the tournament but I was a bit nervous at the same time.” Cotswold not only tasted success in the basketball, but also in athletics. Cotswold’s Oliver Floris, 10, won the visually impaired 1km cross-country race. It was Oliver’s first time competing. His brother, Cameron Floris, of Casebrook Intermediate, ran alongside him as his support runner. “I gave it my all, but I was out of energy at the finish line. I felt overjoyed that I came first,” Oliver said.

League club gets funds for upgrade A GROUNDSWELL of support from the local community has helped the Shirley Hawks Rugby League Club win a $10,000 cash injection to fix up their club. Club supporter Kim McDiarmid was one of the first to nominate the Hawks, describing the club as going above and beyond for their players and fans. Home to five children’s teams, three senior teams and a women’s team, club manager

Bernie Katene says the Shirley Hawks are not the largest rugby league club in the area, but the players and supporters have a lot of heart and the club want to do right by them. The club plans to use the winning funds to upgrade the club building, including the bar, which had been neglected in favour of other improvements. “It’s a big ask for funding to upgrade the bar, because there’s always something else that

needs to be done,” says Katene. As a community-focused club, having attractive clubrooms is important. “We rely on the community to survive. Having a decent place to gather and socialise keeps interest in the team and in our events,” says Katene.  The Woodstock Rugby League Club fix-up competition asked league fans to nominate their local club via Facebook with a short description on why they deserved an upgrade.

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2016 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

21

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Experts restore that “winning smile” Meeting people for the first time, interacting with others on social occasions, going for a job interview – in all these situations your smile is the most important part of you. or perhaps, on a lighter note, you might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’ because your smile is not as attractive as it should be, due to missing or broken teeth. perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture South in Barrington, where the experts can give you that winning smile back. Clinical technician Andrew Johnson and his team of clinical and lab technicians are fully focused on providing customised service at their Barrington clinic, and will take all the time needed to fulfill your partial or full denture requirements whether you want an even, bright smile or a more natural-looking one. For people who have had dentures for a while and are finding they frequently need to buy denture adhesive to keep them in place, Andrew advises having the dentures relined so they will fit better. As he points out, the money spent on denture adhesive over 12 months would easily cover the cost of having your dentures refitted. Denture South has been providing a full range of denture services for the residents

of Christchurch for over 13 years. These services include first-time immediate dentures, full replacement dentures, partial plates and sports mouth-guards. Many Denture South clients come through word-of-mouth referral, an indication of the level of satisfaction that’s provided there. Friendly, approachable and highly skilled, the Denture South team enjoys helping people with all their denture fitting, ongoing care and denture maintenance requirements.

Get rid of dampness in your house

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on its way, home owners are focusing on ways to make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for their families throughout winter. rISIng DAMP is an issue that affects many of our older properties which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people have relocated to homes that suffer from rising damp which can be associated with health problems. Independent tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground and enter a house every day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells. Moulds can produce various allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are especially vulnerable. Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally owned and operated firm. The team understands

the problems caused by rising damp and are there to help. They will come to your damp home and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under your timber floored home. Specially adapted for our new Zealand conditions and applications it provides a layer of protection against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently, is that many owners of properties which had underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it also provided protection against liquefaction after the earthquakes. Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for your free, no obligation quote and complimentary appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more information.

If exhaust ventilation is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air, smells, humidity and harmful substances are not removed. Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a high content of dust and tobacco smoke are harmful and can cause various diseases. even bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open windows for cross ventilation, however as winter approaches, we start to shut up out houses to trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can decline. It is therefore very important to ensure good air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

EQC UPDATE

27

KEEPING YOU INFORMED | AUGUST 2016

The changing shape of EQC Mr Simpson says the reduction in staff numbers had been signalled to staff earlier this year, with more detail given at EQC staff update sessions in July. He was grateful for the professionalism of EQC staff; continuing to achieve key milestones for Canterbury customers during a time of change and personal challenge. By the end of the year, EQC’s target is to have:

The Earthquake Commission’s work in Canterbury is entering a new phase as it settles the final earthquake claims for the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, says EQC Chief Executive, Ian Simpson.

EQC began consultation with its staff this week on a proposed smaller structure for 2017.

“Over the past few months we’ve been looking closely at what remains to be done and we will be carefully matching the workforce to the work that still needs completing.

“As we make changes over the next few months, one thing isn’t changing: we will retain a presence in Canterbury until we have met our obligations to our customers. The proposal is for an organisation with 383 positions from January 2017,” Mr Simpson said.

As part of this, EQC has developed a proposal on how EQC will be organised in 2017 to implement its work in Canterbury, while continuing its national work.”

The proposals for the new structure impact the 868 EQC people on fixed term employment agreements to December 2016 or on contracts for service.

• completed all of the approximately 67,900 managed home repairs. • settled all of the approximately 99,000 residential building claims scheduled for first-time cash settlements. • settled all of the more than 187,000 contents claims. • settled green zone land claims for about 73,000 properties. • resolved 75% of the remedial requests we had on our books as at 30 June 2016 • cash settled 90% of the 3,118 drainage claims we had received by 30 June 2016. • cash settled the 13,985 damage claims received following the series of quakes in Canterbury between February and June 2016. Mr Simpson says that what remains to be done in 2017,is to continue resolving remedial requests on properties where EQC has managed a repair, and continue resolving drainage enquiries. “The level of work left is of a much smaller scale than the Canterbury Home Repair

Programme was designed for. We need a smaller, fit-for-purpose approach to finish the work,” Mr Simpson said. “By 2017 we will have a new approach for handling the remaining work, including remedial requests. We’re working on the details of this now, including talking to Fletcher EQR. We hope we will have a clearer picture around September,” Mr Simpson said. As at 31 July 2016: • there were 238 substantive repairs left, which we aim to have resolved by the end of the year. • there were 335 secondary repairs (such as garages and chimneys) to do. There is also a range of administrative and financial tasks to be completed. “I know it has not been an easy journey for some EQC Canterbury customers. We didn’t get everything right. I’m the first to admit that. But EQC has worked hard to learn from its mistakes and improve how we work not just for Canterbury, but for all New Zealand,” Mr Simpson said. Outside of Canterbury, EQC needs to be ready to respond to any future event and continues negotiating and managing natural disaster reinsurance for the country. EQC will also continue settling the 5,000 to 8,000 natural disaster claims it receives on average every year, funding research to a tune of about $16 million annually, and educating the public about natural hazards and how to mitigate these.

Remedial requests

Drainage

EQC has streamlined its process for handling new remedial requests from customers received from 1 August, 2016.

As at June 30 2016, EQC had 3,118 drainage damage enquiries to be resolved. To ensure timely settlement of these claims, EQC has introduced a panel of licenced drain layers to identify earthquake damage.

EQC Chief Executive, Ian Simpson, says the new process aims for faster resolution with customers having the opportunity to provide information upfront and state their preference for a cash settlement or a managed repair where remedial work is required. The changes have been introduced after positive customer feedback on the process used to manage claims from the February 2016 earthquake, where customers had the opportunity to submit more information upfront to enable quicker turnaround. Many customers going through the February 2016 claims management process are positive or very positive about their experience. EQC is now using this approach for new remedial requests, and customers will be asked to send in information such as photographs and builders’ quotes.

On settlement, customers get a detailed assessment of the earthquake damage, a documented repair strategy, and the costing for the repair. EQC expects to resolve 90% of the drainage claims, lodged by 30 June, in 2016.

settled customers who aren’t confident in sourcing their own contractors,” he says.

Although cash settlement will provide a quicker resolution, it may not suit everyone, Mr Simpson says.

Of the 5,720 open remedial requests, EQC has identified approximately 1,500 properties that cannot be resolved through a managed repair before 2017. The new process, while largely designed for new remedial requests, will be available to these customers and EQC will be making contact with them from late August to ask if they prefer a cash settlement or managed repair during 2017.

“So if a customer prefers that a contractor do the work, then EQC will arrange for that to happen. But EQC’s Community Contact Team and independent customer advocate groups will be available to support any cash-

Customers wanting to discuss remedial requests can contact EQC by phone 0800 DAMAGE (326 243) or email info@eqc.govt.nz

EQC is concentrating on resolving as many drainage claims as possible that were received by June, this year. The claims received after that date will be resolved next year.

Topic is death

Local musician, Dizzy Height is proud to announce the completion of his latest recording, Passing Shadows. “It's safe to say that this album is very, very different and deals with a topic not many are game to talk about let alone record an album about, and that is the subject of death,” says Dizzy Height. “Having worked as an Embalmer/Funeral Director for 9 years I have seen a lot of death. The inspiration for the album is based on my many experiences.” Consisting of nine tracks, the recording is said to be a very thought provoking and inspiring CD. Written, performed, and produced by Dizzy Height, the tracks feature a unique blend of classically inspired pieces infused with traditional rock guitar. From the opening title track 'Passing Shadows' to the final track 'After Life' the album has a positive theme which encompasses all the things that most people have thought about at some stage.
