Christchurch Earthquake

In 2011 Murray’s hometown of Christchurch was hit by a devastating magnitude 6.3 earthquake. Following only 5 months from a magnitude 7.1 earthquake that had weakened many structures throughout the town, the 2011 earthquake caused the need for over 10,000 homes to be demolished and many more requiring extensive work and alterations. Much of Murray’s work since the earthquake has been on helping people who have been affected by the earthquake whether it be rebuilding from scratch, or fixing parts of a building to make it liveable again.
