Christchurch Arts Centre

Asbestos removal

Christchurch Arts Centre project focused on asbestos removal throughout Christchurch Arts Centre Buildings after the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

The Arts Centre is a mix of buildings of which 20 are Historic Place Category 1. Many others are Historic Place Category 2.

They are considered Gothic revival and date from 1877.

Harcourt Insulation 2006 Limited have since the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes done asbestos removal in stages at the Great Hall, Library, Student Union, Botany, Registry, Clock Tower, Engineering buildings as well as in the South Quad and several trenches.

This requires meeting the unique needs of this historic site and working with and around many other sub trades and to a very tight and complex rebuild schedule as the buildings are reopened in stages.
