Rebuild & Renovate Christchurch Home Show Puts Public Concerns in Front of Industry Experts

The rebuild of Christchurch might well be underway, but the reality of what’s involved in a rebuild or renovation is turning out to be far more confusing than anyone could have imagined. The Rebuild & Renovate Christchurch Home Show is the perfect place to offer both guidance and advice to Cantabrians stuck within a daunting rebuild process.

Amanda Magnus, Exhibitions and Events Exhibition Director says the show has been designed especially with Cantabrian needs in mind. “We want people to have the best possible start to their rebuild process,” says Magnus. “The show has numerous experts from all industries on site and ready to answer any question about minor renovations through to a complete rebuild,” she said.

Opening at 10am this Friday March 14 at Christchurch’s CBS Canterbury Arena Addington, Rebuild & Renovate Christchurch offers three days of FREE seminars hosted by some of the industry’s top experts as well as hundreds of innovative products and solutions for any home project on display.

Exhibitor Michelle van Dinther of Realty Returns is a big fan of the Rebuild & Renovate Show having been someone who has dealt with the concerns and frustrations of Cantabrians trying to rebuild for the past few years. “Rebuild & Renovate offers us a real opportunity to have face-to-face conversations with people concerned about their personal situation,” says van Dinther.

“Many people have no understanding at all of the new processes involved and the many small contract details that can cause a lot of stress and heartache further down the track if overlooked in the beginning,” she says.

Nina Baillie of Greywacke Design is one of those experts hosting seminars throughout the weekend looking at the key renovation projects of kitchens and bathrooms from innovation through to installation. “I’m advising people to think about functionality versus style,” said Baillie.

“I want to provide people with a scope of what they need to think about when it comes to their project; provide some insight as to who they need they need to talk to; where to go to get consent, how to look at their current and proposed layout, even down to choosing the right kind of appliances,” she says.

Amanda Magnus notes the most important fact about Christchurch is that there are a huge number of people facing a rebuild or renovation project, not through choice but completely through necessity.

“For some people it’s still a completely daunting concept and something that they had not planned on having to undertake, but now they do and we are here to try and help make (their process) as easy as possible,” she says.
