Business Systems

Rebuilding horizontal infrastructure proved to be a mammoth undertaking. With 740 projects, up to 2000 staff and a $2.2 billion budget, purpose-designed business systems were vital to manage the complex programme of SCIRT works.

Capturing crucial data to enable and empower the rebuild of Christchurch was paramount for SCIRT. Indeed, the success of the SCIRT programme was built on those business systems.

Rebuilding horizontal infrastructure proved to be a mammoth undertaking. With 740 projects, up to 2000 staff at the peak and a $2.2 billion budget, purpose-designed business systems were vital to manage the complex programme of SCIRT works.

Amid the ongoing tremors and the unprecedented scale of horizontal infrastructure destruction, the need to quickly introduce robust systems to manage the massive amount of project and asset-related documentation and data was laid bare.

Integral to SCIRT's day-to-day functionality, the business systems ensured works programme processes were on track and that the organisation was well placed to adapt and grow to support stakeholder confidence and meet rebuild demands.

The culture of accuracy and continuous improvement allowed for business systems experimentation and didn't penalise any missteps in the development phase. It was a fast-tracked process. If a step worked, it stayed. If not, an alternative was found.
