New Zealand

EWBNZ carries out projects locally here in New Zealand, to help communities in our own back yard. After the Christchurch earthquakes in 2011, local organisations have been forming to contribute to Christchurch's regeneration, and EWBNZ has played a part by partnering with some of these organisations and providing engineering assistance.

Gap Filler together with Engineers Without Borders have been hard at work over the last seven months, taking an old parking meter and repurposing it to share sweet free things to do in Christchurch.

Auckland’s Aotea Square’s 2013 Christmas Celebrations promoted holiday cheer and environmental awareness. A 7m tall Christmas tree, lit up beautifully at night, was adorned by 12 smaller Christmas trees.

Engineers Without Borders formed a project team of highly qualified Christchurch engineers, including two geotechnical engineers and one cost estimator, who have been donating their time to assist Habitat for Humanity be assisting them with the post-quake repair of a severely damaged Habitat home in Aranui.
