The Commercial Model

The Commercial Model

How do you control the money in a post-disaster rebuild context?

For SCIRT, it was the $2.2 billion question.

Under SCIRT, a unique commercial model was developed, from a belief that the rebuild programme could function more effectively if a balance was struck between competition and collaboration.

With a multi-billion-dollar plan on the table to repair and restore Christchurch's damaged roads and underground services, SCIRT recognised the need for innovation, quickly setting the scene for a new commercial reality that would ensure money was always well spent.
