Reconstruction following disaster

The post-disaster reconstruction research team has been researching post-disaster reconstruction for the past 10+ years, visiting many international disaster zones to understand what unique challenges and opportunities arise during reconstruction following a disaster.

The post-disaster reconstruction research team primarily focuses on the capability and capacity of the construction sector to rise to the challenge of a major reconstruction effort, and is subdivided into the following themes:

  • Resourcing reconstruction
  • Project productivity
  • Procurement of recovery projects
  • Recovery governance

With the Christchurch rebuild underway, the research team continue to actively monitoring and reporting on resourcing issues likely to emerge over time.
