Burnside High’s leaky building repairs „„ By Gabrielle Stuart DESIGN FLAWS are believed to be responsible for leaks in the six-year-old $4 million Burnside High School art and technology block. Similar leaks have also been found in the school administration buildings. They will be repaired as part of a $24 million repair and

redevelopment work plan at the school, which is set to start this year. The cost of fixing the leaks is not yet known, but is expected to be assessed in the next few weeks. The building has been leaking for more than two years, but work to fix it was put on hold while the Ministry of Education assessed other earthquake

repairs and redevelopment work at the school. Burnside principal Phil Holstein said the repair was initially not expected to be done until 2022. It was brought forward to this year, as the school was worried damage would be done to the building if the leaks were not repaired, he said. He said the architectural

design of the buildings was believed to be responsible for the leaks. “Across the country, a lot of school designs with this style of architecture, particularly flat roof buildings, a lot of them have weather tightness issues,” he said. Alongside the repair work, he said the school was set to be refurbished and modernised.

“We want to provide the best learning environment we can for our students here, and that’s ultimately what we’re after,” he said. Bringing the work forward meant the school could start the master-planning process with the Ministry of Education soon, he said. •Turn to page 8

Mother Nature rains down on school netball tournament While most of the city was sheltering away from the terrible weather conditions last week, hardy students were out in the elements competing in the South Island secondary schools junior netball tournament. Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and St Margaret’s College year 10 sides battled it out at the Christchurch Netball Centre in Hagley Park until it got too bad and the game had to be called off. The tournament was celebrating its 20th anniversary, but Mother Nature had other ideas. The competition, held from July 10-12, saw year 9 and 10 teams from around the South Island compete. The grand finals were able to be played after St Margaret’s came to the rescue and offered their gym for the tournament. •Full story, page 16

WHAT RAIN?: Rangi Ruru and St Margaret’s year 10 netball sides persisted as long as they could in terrible conditions before the game was called off.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THERE’S ONE big leaky problem on page 1 today – Burnside High School. We reveal design flaws are believed to be responsible for leaks in the six-year-old $4 million art and technology block. Similar leaks have also been found in the school administration buildings. The cost of fixing the leaks will be known in the next couple of weeks. The building has been leaking for more than two years, but work to fix it was put on hold while earthquake repairs were assessed. The flat roof design appears to be the cause of the damage. No surprises there. Hats off, or hats on to the netballers (see page 1) who braved the brutal conditions last week at the Hagley courts. Real character-building stuff. – Barry Clarke

News No library bus for Merivale „„ By Julia Evans THE MERIVALE Precinct Society is worried about the lack of facilities for its ageing population. So the residents’ group came up with a solution – to put the mobile library bus stop there again. Deputy chairwoman Denise Leighs approached the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board, which raised the issue with the city council. However, the city council said Merivale does not meet the criteria to get the mobile library bus back anytime soon. Carolyn “The mobile Robertson library idea was discussed at (the Merivale Precinct Society’s) May meeting as an ongoing conversation about the lack of facilities for the ageing population,” Mrs Leighs said. She said the library bus used to stop in Merivale before the earthquakes outside the JDV cafe entrance on Aikmans Rd. But city council libraries and information manager Caroline

BUS: The mobile library used to stop on Aikmans Rd but the city council won’t consider bringing it back.

Robertson said the city council would not be considering a stop in Merivale. “Previously the mobile library did stop at Merivale but, at the time, the area did not have access to the same number of library facilities it does now,” Ms Robertson said. In assessing the need for a mobile stop, city council staff have to consider a number of factors. “The mobile library operates a service that targets specific sectors of the community. This

In Brief CLUB’S PARKING TROUBLE Parking is proving difficult at Tulett Park in Casebrook for members of the Nomads football club. The club requested additional parking from the city council. City council staff have advised that they will look into marking individual parks on Claridges Rd once other construction work in the area has been finished. TRUCK HAZARD SOLVED Delivery trucks which park at the intersection of Trafford St and Harewood Rd while servicing the Harewood Dairy and Superette could be a major factor in the visibility problem for motorists on the corner. The FendaltonWaimairi-Harewood Community Board was approached by a resident who expressed concern for the safety of both the drivers and pedestrians. The trucks have now been asked to park further back from the corner. EDGEWARE STORY BOARDS The boards outside Edgeware Rd’s Supervalue supermarket, which tell the history of Edgeware, have been put into storage while the supermarket is expanded. Once the work is completed, the boards will be returned to the street-front.

Volunteers honoured for service

AWARD: Former Belfast School principal Peter Simpson was honoured for his service. ​

VOLUNTEERS were honoured for their contributions to the community at the PapanuiInnes Community Board Community Service awards. Vicki Campbell Ms Campbell has positively influenced the lives of many young people and adults through mentoring and running fitness sessions. She has also coached rugby and rugby league in Papanui for the past eight years, supported the Northcote Friday after school programme and helped with the Pasifika Cultural Festival. Ms Campbell has worked with youth at Te Ora Hou for the past 13 years and her generosity and willingness to go above the beyond for people makes her a valuable role model especially to young Maori and Pasifika women. Nicholas Christensen Mr Christensen has been involved with the city council graffiti programme since 2011. The role benefits the community and those driving through it by having any graffiti removed in a timely manner. Sheila Denley Ms Denley has been

supporting the Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust’s mainly music project for over five years. She began by helping in the kitchen and continues to offer her help there as well as with the supervision and guidance of multiple children during the music session. Julian Dent Mr Dent has donated his time and energy for the past 10 years in keeping the grounds of the iconic St Paul’s Anglican Church in an immaculate condition. By keeping the grounds so beautiful, Mr Dent has created a space that parishioners, visitors, tourists, pedestrians and commuters can enjoy. He also conducts guided tours during Heritage Week. Norma Edwards Ms Edwards has been supporting the Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust’s mainly music project for more than ten years. She went along one day to help in the kitchen and has been back weekly ever since. She not only makes great drinks, she often makes special treats and does all the shopping to keep families

well fed and hydrated. She is known to everyone as Grandma. Debbie Ewings Ms Ewings has been supporting the Papanui Baptist Freedom Trust’s mainly music project for nearly eight years. She is an enthusiastic member of the team and competently operates the somewhat temperamental sound and vision equipment to ensure a full programme is available. Bill and Debbie Frame Mr and Mrs Frame have been involved with the city council graffiti programme since 2012. Having the graffiti removed has also proven to reduce further incidents, which contributes to keeping the cost of graffiti removal down for the rate payer. Donna Higgs-Herrick Ms Higgs Herrick wears many hats in her volunteer service for the Canterbury Down Syndrome Association, which she coordinates. She also fundraises, organises events and supports other parents experiencing the challenges and triumphs of

Sealed with a kiss PATRICK BENNETT had waited a long time to see the America’s Cup. And during Emirates Team New Zealand’s victory parade on Wednesday, the Redwood man got to give it a kiss. Mr Bennett said he did not know what possessed him to do it. “It’s pretty unreal to see it,” he said.

  FLAME FILES

PLAYFUL: This seal pup was escorted from Fitzgerald Ave by the city’s red watch fire crew.

It’s just that this was a house damaged back in the earthquakes and the chimney had been removed. The result was quite fortunate really, with smoke filling the ceiling and then the house itself. Fortunate because that smoke was all that happened. Could easily have resulted in the loss of the home. We go to any number of false alarms at buildings with smoke detectors. Some are from accidental causes, where smoke from

cooking or dust from workmen sanding, set the alarms off. Last Thursday’s call to the Riccarton Clinic was a bit different. A plaster cast was being cut off a patient. Seems the plaster dust was enough to activate the alarm. Result was a full evacuation. Finally, the retrieval of a seal pup from Fitzgerald Ave and its return to the Avon was accomplished by the city’s red watch fire crew on Wednesday. Hope Mum was about.

Leaky building repairs for Burnside High •From page 1 Ministry of Education head of the education infrastructure service Kim Shannon said the work would start in the next few weeks. Once the design work was done on the buildings, the cost

of fixing the leaking issues could be assessed, she said. “A designer will be appointed in the next few weeks to determine specifically what is required to fix the weathertightness issues,” she said. She said the leaks were the

result of “historic design and construction work”, but who was liable was complicated. “Proving liability for weathertightness issues is not straight forward in Christchurch due to the wide ranging impacts of the earthquakes,” she said.

Readers write about whether free entry is enough to get them cycling into the Jellie Park Sport and Recreation Centre Connie Kruse Christensen – Free entry would make me cycle to the swimming pools. But it needs more promoting to schools, workplaces and the greater community for people to know it exists. Nic Davies – Warm weather. Sadly, I’m not much of a biker, but have to say, love these new cycleways that are being made. If I was more into biking, I’d feel damn safer using them with all the crazy car drivers about. Lynn Mortlock – The first trial was in the middle of summer and 117 visits were recorded, which according to the organiser was a success. Welcome to Christchurch, which caters for the minority and the majority suffer.

Anna Henderson – Probably will anyway but cycle lanes the whole way would help. Feels much safer. Dennis Rogers – It makes sense to bike as you’re saving at least $1000-plus a year leaving your car at home. It’s extra money in your pocket. Danielle Aitken – Advertise it more. I saw nothing about the last trial at all. Jillian Nuth – I’d love to but the traffic is terrifying.

Seal pup gets short shrift „„ By Mark Thomas – specialist fire investigator IT WAS going to be the mother of all storms apparently. It turns out it wasn’t.  At least not in the city. But it was bitterly cold, some snow fell and on the hills it managed to settle.  I’m sure the weather did have some effect, however, with 16 motor accidents attended by our crews in the week. We did have the odd other call that could have been attributed to the weather.  Although the incident attended by Harewood and Addington crews in Hornby last Friday had its origin in ignorance rather than iciness.  A fire was lit in the fireplace by a shivering occupant.

„„ By Andrew King RAIN, HAIL and sleet could not stop the St Andrew’s College year 9 netball team from winning their grade in the South Island secondary schools junior netball tournament on Wednesday. St Andrew’s beat Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate 33-12 in the final. However, due to the appalling weather conditions, the final was transferred from the

Christchurch Netball Centre to the St Margaret’s College gym. Unfortunately, they were unable to play most of the other final games due to snow falling. St Andrew’s breezed past Kaiapoi High in the opening round 54-12 before beating St Kevin’s College 39-13 and Marlborough Girls’ High 31-18. They backed those results up by beating Rolleston College

39-13, St Margaret’s 40-19 and Mt Aspiring College 34-14. The semi-final against Villa Maria College was tighter with St Andrew’s getting past them 30-24. Tournament director Penny Martin said it was a great event which was, unfortunately, let down by the weather. “After two full days of playing their little hearts out, it was a shame to cancel those last games,” she said. Rangi Ruru Girls’ High

came third equal with Villa Maria in the year 9 grade and St Margaret’s were fifth equal. Christchurch Girls’ High came third equal with Southland Girls’ High in the year 10 grade, while St Andrew’s was fifth equal with St Hilda’s. The tournament, now in its 20th year, attracted 88 year 9 and 10 teams to compete for glory over the three-day event, which is held every year at the Christchurch Netball Centre.

New treatment for fungal nails Feet First, the long-established podiatry clinic in Upper Riccarton, now has a much more efficient and effective means of dealing with the problem of fungal nails, thanks to a new machine they recently obtained from Britain, where it was designed and trialled. Clearanail is a procedure where the Podiatrists use a machine to make tiny holes in the nail without affecting the nail bed – a completely pain-free procedure that then allows the topical application of antifungal solution to directly reach the problem area. Fungal nails may cause the toenail to thicken, which consequently can make shoes feel uncomfortable. Anyone who believes they have a fungal infection of the nails is invited to make an appointment for a

consultation with Feet First so one of the qualified Podiatrists can assess if that is the case, and if so, will recommend the Clearanail procedure. This involves the initial treatment, and three follow-up appointments at monthly intervals to check progress. “Fungal nail infections won’t disappear immediately,” clinic director Charlotte Russell says, “so people need to commit to the process, which can take up to four months as the nail grows.”

effective treatment, Feet First has another unique feature – the Shoe Room. Here, clients can browse through a wide selection of ‘fashionable, functional footwear’ for men and women that not only provides support and comfort, but also looks modern and attractive. The four registered and experienced Feet First Podiatrists offer the full range of podiatry services for all ages and all conditions, with customised treatment provided for every client. They also offer a range of quality foot treatment products, including the German brand Gehwol.

The clinic at 37 Main South Road is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm, with late nights on Monday and Thursday to 7pm by appointment. The Shoe Room is open Monday to Friday 9am-4pm. There is on-site parking available. Feet First also runs several satellite clinics. These are at the Marshland Family Health Centre, Marshland Road on Mondays, the Redcliffs Clinic, Augusta Street, on Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning, the Waltham Medical Centre, Waltham Road on Wednesday afternoon, and at Darfield Pharmacy on Friday.

NEW TECHNOLOGY TO TREAT FUNGAL NAILS The Clearanail machine and related products.

Clinic director Charlotte Russell displays one of the modern boot styles available in the Shoe Room.

She says now is an ideal time to start fungal nail treatment with Clearanail, so nails will be looking healthy again when the warm, sandal-wearing weather arrives. Feet First has an introductory offer on Clearanail until the end of July. Call them on 348-7910 for details. In addition to offering this highly

EAGER: More than 50 people and their bicycles braved the cold to celebrate the opening of the Papanui Parallel. ​

Community celebrates cycleway „„ By Julia Evans THE ST Albans community thinks the cycleway in its neighbourhood is something to celebrate. So more than 50 residents took their children, dogs and bicycles along to the Papanui Parallel to mark its opening. Organiser Lynne O’Keefe said they’d tried to arrange the event at the same time

as the official opening by Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Minister of Transport Simon Bridges. But she said it was a “moving target” due to the minister’s busy schedule so they locked in their own date. Residents met at the Rutland Reserve for a barbecue lunch provided by Fulton Hogan before exploring the new cycleway. Mrs O’Keefe said it was

great to see people out using the new route. “It just encouraged people out onto it and it felt like we moved away from the controversy surrounding the cycleways,” she said. The event was supported by local businesses, who Mrs O’Keefe said were the most negatively impacted by the cycleways. “It was great to see them getting behind it.”

Add the mushrooms and fry for 2-3min until cooked. Add the breadcrumbs, cooking until the butter has been absorbed.

Hello

Hosting opportunities! Christchurch is entering a new and exciting phase and the recent inauguration of ChristchurchNZ bringing together four key sectors; Tourism, International Education, Business Innovation and the new Convention Bureau, is a demonstration of the city’s commitment to make Christchurch a great destination to visit and to study and work in! International students are on the rise, and Alpha Homestays Limited (AHSL) is building on the proud history of Student Links to facilitate good matching of international students with local New Zealand families as they pursue their various study options. AHSL provides services to Alpha Educational Institute (AEI), in Sheffield Crescent (where Margaret Bray and Jude Cochrane look after our office); the National Trade Academy (NTA), a land-based training centre near Orana Park; the International Aviation Academy of New Zealand (IAANZ), in Pound Road, which trains pilots, and the Air New Zealand Aviation Institute (AirNZAI), in Orchard Road, who train the Aircraft Engineers! So, we do have our work cutout these days and are definitely looking to broaden our Homestay base – hence the accompanying advertisement!

Currently the age-range that AHSL caters for is from 12-years old to mature adults. The younger students (mostly teenagers) are generally in AEI’s High School Preparation Programme and the adult students are preparing for further tertiary study or are already enrolled in one of the tertiary institutions mentioned. The recent nationality mix has included Chinese and Taiwanese, Japanese, South Korean, Filipino, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Thai, Indian, and several of our South American countries! AHSL is very attentive to the need to support both the homestay families and the international students, and so pastoral care oversight is a high priority. We are very mindful of the significant ‘Adjustment Curve’ that all the students go through, no matter what their age! After all, they are changing country and culture and language of learning! This means different food, climate, lifestyles, customs, and of course the challenge of learning and communicating in English! We try to imagine ourselves in the reverse scenario and we can totally empathise! We hope many of you will consider joining the AHSL Team!

Do you enjoy making new friends, have a spare bedroom and want to earn some income by hosting a student?

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Time Honoured Are you Magnesium Remedy According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an important part of a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly consumed cider vinegar and honey had excellent health with many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even when well into their eighties. Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar and honey on arthritis can be remarkable with many patients reporting almost total relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted calcium deposits and helped the body control calcium use. As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found regular administration of cider vinegar and honey at the onset of complaints such as the common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks, hay fever, and childhood diseases such as chicken pox and measles, was accompanied by an improvement in the condition with symptoms either disappearing, or the conditions were extremely mild and soon over. Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness of the apple in a form that is readily accepted by the body. Scientists have found over 90 different substances in ACV, among them 20 important trace elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a number of different acids including malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the form of potash and pectin. A scientific study at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can destroy free radicals, which are a major factor in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down cholesterol formations in the blood vessels. ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize any toxic substances that enter the body. It is important to note not all cider vinegar is made in the traditional way and results are likely to prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Minerals are the building blocks of good health. Some minerals are only needed in trace amounts where others like magnesium are needed in much larger amounts and on a regular basis to prevent deficiency and maintain optimum health. A large number of us do not obtain sufficient magnesium from our diet and may notice some of the common signs of deficiency. Some of the more common symptoms that may be caused by insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands, blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep, raised and/or unstable blood pressure, poor circulation, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, swallowing problems, dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation, irritability, seizures, poor concentration and many more. Although many young people now show signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms generally worsen as we age due to our digestive system being less efficient. Taking a magnesium supplement of sufficient strength may be a sensible option to top

up our vital magnesium levels. Not all magnesium supplements however are well absorbed by everyone. Luckily a new marine sourced magnesium has been found that offers good levels of absorbable magnesium as well as many trace nutrients that are low in the diet but essential for good health.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Be health smart this winter HaNDS arE the main pathways of germ transmission. Hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission of harmful germs. Wash your hands, before & after food preparation and eating, if you borrow someone elses equipment and of course after blowing your nose. For convenience it is a good idea to have hand sanitiser on hand to use in between washing. Sneezing & coughing into the crook of your arm or tissues rather than your hand, reduces the spread of airborne bugs. remove tissues to the rubbish immediately. Keep hydrated, two thirds of your body is made of water, so keeping hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Dehydration symptoms range from headaches to nausea to fatigue, but the effects of dehydration on your immune system are not always as obvious. Staying hydrated keeps the mucus membranes moist, which keeps the immune system functioning optimally. Unfortunately, lattes and wine don’t count, but upping your intake of water is incredibly beneficial. aim to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. You’ll notice the difference!

True

Eat in season, poor nutrition impairs the immune response. Fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and legumes or pulses are full of immune-boosting properties and antioxidants. Nature provides fresh seasonal foods to compensate for what our bodies are lacking at that time of year. Kiwifruit & citrus fruits that are in season throughout winter are packed with Vitamin C. Stress less, although short periods of stress can actually be good for us longterm chronic stress lowers our immunity, making us more susceptible to colds and flu. We all have our own ways of coping and reducing stress so whether it’s taking a bath, going to the gym, getting outdoors in the garden or having fun with the kids, do something to unwind. Not only are you doing your adrenal glands a favour, you’re also reducing your chances of being struck down by the latest virus. Get a good night’s sleep, sleep is essential for your body to rest, repair and rejuvenate. (Don’t you find you always tend to look your best after a good night’s sleep?) The human growth hormone that’s released during sleep helps repair your body at a cellular level, but it’s also beneficial for the immune system.

INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS: The National Brass Band of New Zealand, which includes 13 Christchurch members, were runners-up in a section of the World Music Contest. ​

Woolston Brass members play big role in international success CHRISTCHURCH musicians feature prominently in the National Brass Band of New Zealand, which was named runner-up in the brass band section of the World Music Contest. A third of the band members are from Christchurch, with all but one playing for Woolston Brass. The contest is held every four years in Kerkrade, the Netherlands. The New Zealand band’s programme opened with Whakarangatiratanga, commissioned from New Zealand composer Gareth Farr. The programme also featured a new major work written for the band by renowned English composer Peter Graham. The 39th Parallel is based on the landscape and mythology of the Wanganui region in memory of brass band

The Christchurch School of Music is a family-oriented community aimed at providing quality music education in and around Christchurch. CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong focus on community. On a Saturday morning the whole family can find something to suit. Preschool and junior school children can start their musical journey by joining in our experiential “Take Off with Music” while older children and adults may opt for group or individual lessons on a specific instrument (including voice). Those who already play are welcome to join in one of the great ensembles which all take part in regular concerts including Saturday soirees and the popular annual Showcase Concert. Solo Recitals where individuals can perform are held regularly. CSM also provides a comprehensive music education to participating primary schools via its Outreach programmes offering

tuition in band, strings, recorder, ukulele and classroom music in a wide range of Christchurch schools. Age is no limit - our Late Starters programme provides the opportunity for adults approaching retirement with more time on their hands to learn an instrument and join an ensemble with other like-minded adults. If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also offers a range of weekday opportunities for learning and playing music and, if affordability is an issue, CSM may be able to offer a discount through funding provided by the Rata Foundation. Term 3 starts on Saturday 29 July and we can take new enrolments in most classes and ensembles. Please contact us via our website www. csm.org.nz and let us start you on a musical journey that will bring pleasure for a lifetime.

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, 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.

HOME & HEATING

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.

The facts about home ventilation Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure Under the New Zealand Building Code, all buildings, including residential, need to be suitably ventilated, either with opening windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this provision is to safeguard people from illness or loss of amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced, or mechanical, ventilation over opening windows, including warmth, security, reduction of outside noises and reduction of condensation. Traditional domestic ventilation systems are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from outside via the roof space and force the stale air out through gaps around windows and doors. The incoming air from these systems has to be heated or cooled to keep the house warm in winter or cool in summer. The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It extracts air from the house and at the same time brings in fresh air. These two streams of air pass through a heat exchanger, which warms incoming air in winter and cools in summer if air conditioning is being used. This means that up to 80% of the energy which would be

ced n a l a B ure Press on lati Venti

wasted using a traditional positive pressure system is recovered, resulting in significant energy savings and therefore lower heating or cooling costs. Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation systems have been considerably more expensive than traditional positive pressure systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390 balanced pressure system can be installed for a similar price as a traditional positive pressure system.
