    A new SCIRT initiative will help ease the pressure on South New Brighton residents in the event of heavy rain and flooding.

    The new storm water retention pond near the South New Brighton Bridge on Bridge Street has been especially designed to soak up any excess storm water.

    The ecological pond not only looks great with native flaxes and fauna, but it will soon play an important role in protecting the area and nearby homes from storm water flooding.

    The New Brighton people, tourists and the New Brighton residents association are supporting the pond and having their reserve back.

    Exciting new drone footage shows the extensive repairs underway on Lyttelton’s Sumner Road. 
     
    The popular route for heavy traffic heading to and from the Port of Lyttelton has been closed since the earthquakes of 2011.
     
    SCIRT’s Fulton Hogan delivery team has spent the last four years repairing several retaining walls on Sumner Road and this new footage shows an award winning innovative repair method in action.
     
    A crane lifted work access platform housing a mobile drilling rig has been providing access for the crews to the hard to reach retaining wall while protecting the businesses below.
     
    Fulton Hogan Project Manager Henry says the safety of the crew, residents and businesses below was a top priority for SCIRT.

    Since the programme began in 2011 SCIRT has been encouraging women in Christchurch to explore the opportunities the civil construction industry has on offerand participate in the rebuild of our beautiful city. SCIRT has formed a group of empowered women, supported by a SCIRT Board Champion, who have been actively raising the profile and enablingwomen in the construction industry and creating a ‘new normal’ where women fit in what was traditionally a male-dominated workforce. Their efforts were recently recognised at the 2015 EEO Diversity Awards through the making of this video.

    Digging down a road is business as usual nowadays, but replacing pipe underneath a railway line is a special occasion. The Fulton Hogan crew working on the Addington wastewater repair job had to finish their work with a dig down off Detroit Place. Before this final repair work could even begin a section of railway line had to be carefully separated and removed from the tracks.
    The workers were on a tight timeframe as the work had to be complete and the railway safely back in place before the next train was scheduled to come through at 5:30pm.

    Building Blocks: Hidden City, explores the fascinating water supply and wastewater networks in Christchurch, providing an insight into how it all works. This short film, presented by Safety Sam (our local DJ “Bondy” from More FM), explains how we get clean and safe water and, if you are brave enough to watch, uncovers the mysteries of where wastewater goes. The film also includes the work currently being undertaken by SCIRT (Stronger Christchurch infrastructure Rebuild Team), who have been tasked with the repair of the earthquake damaged infrastructure in Christchurch. This is a must watch for inquisitive minds who want to find out more about our hidden city!

    The film is inspired by Philip Wilkins, a civil engineer who is trying to open the eyes of his son to how a city functions and what Dad does when he goes to work. This is primarily an educational video for children who want to understand the exciting world of engineering. It is also intended to promote the industry and create awareness of the work civil engineers do. Enjoy!
