Earthquake Update

It was a rude awakening for us all on Saturday morning.  All of our staff (and family) are okay.  It appears that Rebecca and Michelle in Rolleston got shaken a bit more than the rest of us so they’ve got more contents (and maybe building) damage.

The building where we are based in central Christchurch (Price Waterhouse Coopers) on Armagh Street has only superficial damage but due to damage to the stairwells access is restricted.  In the meantime we have relocated to Mike’s lounge!

We’ve got our survey gear, some of the live files and some of the computers so we’re largely operational.

If you need to contact us please use our normal email addresses ( or or phone us on our usual number 03 366-3959 or the following cell phones:

Here’s a photo of the carnage at work:

(not much to see here, please move on….)

Here’s a photo of us camped out in Mikes lounge:

Looks like a lot of standing round, but we are busy.


If you want to watch us bouncing with the aftershocks have a look at this GNS Twitter account:
