QuakeCoRE 2021 – 2028 Research Programme – Interdisciplinary Programme 2: Thriving Residential Communities

10 am Friday 13th May

Programme Co-Leader: Tim Sullivan (University of Canterbury) &
Programme Co-Leader: Julia Becker (Massey University)

Abstract 

The Canterbury earthquakes caused widespread damage and losses to residential buildings, and significant community disruption. Despite this, few changes have taken place to reduce the vulnerability of residential buildings. There is an urgent need to improve the resilience of the residential sector, particularly given New Zealand’s acceleration in construction of new houses. To do this we need to understand how to effectively reduce damage to residential housing in earthquakes through engineering practice, and address any contributing societal components (e.g. planning, policy, beliefs and actions).  This project focusses on identifying the nature of key challenges to residential resilience in an earthquake context (i.e. legal, land-use planning, insurance, engineering and technology, and societal issues) for improving residential resilience, and creating Thriving Residential Communities.
