NZ Public-Private Recovery Organization

See this explanation of SCIRT and its learning legacy.

The Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) was a virtual organisation created in 2011 to rebuild Christchurch’s earthquake damaged horizontal infrastructure. SCIRT’s job was to provide a cost-effective and efficient vehicle to quickly get the city’s civil infrastructure back on its feet.

SCIRT’s $2.2 billion five-and-a-half year programme was funded by the New Zealand Government and Christchurch City Council. It involved more than 700 individual projects across the city repairing and rebuilding underground sewage, storm water and fresh water pipes, rebuilding wastewater pump stations as well as roads, bridges and retaining walls.

  1. SCIRT also is notable because they are one of the few organizations who showed they knew how to make “data-informed” decisions. They gathered a great deal of data and actually used it to make decisions. Many organizations gathered data; SCIRT was almost the only one who integrated the data collected (and data collection) into their decision-making processes.
