QBE insures a significant model of architecture in New Zealand
In February 2011, the city of Christchurch suffered a catastrophic 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Many historic buildings were severely damaged, including the 19th century Christchurch Cathedral. In 2012, a decision was made to start the deconstruction of the Cathedral and plans quickly emerged to create a “transitional” cathedral using cardboard tubes in its construction. It is now being cited internationally as a “must see” tourist site. While this project was a challenging one, QBE understood the risks of this innovative venture and was pleased to help make this project happen.
