Abstract

The Canterbury region in the South Island of New Zealand has sustained a number of significant earthquakes from 4th September 2010 until the present. The author has been advising Christchurch City Council's heritage earthquake response team on its heritage buildings since 1st March 2011 and this paper is intended to review the performance of the listed heritage building stock in the earthquake swarm. It will detail the history of how the region's buildings developed, typical building types, the tectonic setting, the events of 4th September 2010 and 22nd February 2011, civil defence procedures, inspections and indicator buildings, heritage buildings, other buildings, types of failures, performance of seismic retrofits, churches and personal experiences.
