Earthquake Resistance Testing – Lockwood Homes

Earthquake Resistance Testing

Because the Lockwood homes building system can be deployed nationwide, we test our system for geographical conditions and earth movement unlike any other New Zealand home building company. Watch the video below to find out more.

Mark Christison and his experiences through the Christchurch Earthquake

Mark Christison was the Christchurch City Council water and waste manager, responsible for the planning and delivery of the City’s essential services (water supply, wastewater services, rubbish and recycling services and storm water and land drainage).

Mark was responsible for leading the infrastructure response after the Canterbury Earthquake sequence in 2010 and 2011 and was instrumental in establishing the rebuild and recovery frameworks that have continued the recovery of the Christchurch since the earthquakes struck.

In the video below, he talks about the forces involved in the quakes and how his neighbourhood, as well as the city, was affected. He also describes how his 6 year old Lockwood “Governer” Home made it through with minimal damage, while other, newly built homes, suffered major damage.
