Miles Construction help re-build Christchurch

The Council is rebuilding social housing that’s designed to meet the needs of the community over the long term.

Five years on from the Canterbury earthquakes and regeneration is continuing to grow, with Christchurch City Council completing the largest social housing development of Lifemark™ certified homes since.

18 new units at the Harman Courts housing complex in Addington were built by Lifemark™ Partners Miles Construction to help replace those lost to the residential red zone following the earthquakes.

Councillor Andrew Turner, Chair of the Communities, Housing and Economic Development Committee, says: “The Council is rebuilding social housing that’s designed to meet the needs of the community over the long term. These units are warm, energy-efficient and ready to cater to the changing needs of tenants over their lifetimes.”

The homes meet specific design and accessibility standards to accommodate tenants’ changing needs and feature double glazing, wet-area showers, wider pathways and doorways, and higher wall sockets.
