Fletcher EQR updates

Fletcher EQR updates: $2billion net to contractors, 89% of CHRP repairs completed, 92 units finished in largest single repair

Repair programme marks $2billion net payments to contractors. View our online release.

Progress scorecard shows over 89% of earthquake repairs are now complete or underway.

There’s a feature on a central city homeowner whose repairs were scheduled to start today four years after the September 4, 2010 event.

Read about the recent sign-off of the largest single repair in the programme - a 92-unit retirement village that took months of planning to minimise impact on the residents.

The latest Revive newsletter for contractors is available with homeowners talking about their repair experiences, a safety message from EQR’s General Manager, and the contractor compliments board.
