Coastal & Inland Flood Protection
Sea levels are expected to rise at an increased rate, for centuries. This could potentially affect hundreds of millions of people living in low-lying coastal areas (less than 10 metres above sea level), and the majority of the world’s largest cities.
House Lifters helps protect properties in coastal areas vulnerable to rising sea-levels, and inland flood-prone/at-risk areas. We Lift buildings to safer heights, then build new or extended Foundations. We have the internationally-recognised expertise and equipment to provide assistance in New Zealand and overseas.

Minimum Floor Levels
In New Zealand, if you will be building/rebuilding or adding onto a property, ensure the Plans comply with minimum Floor Levels required by either the Building Consent (Building Act), or your local Council. This could save you wasting thousands of dollars on non-compliant building/architectural Plans!
Many Canterbury communities were built on low-lying river flood plains, including Christchurch. It has always had areas prone to flooding, and the Christchurch City Council sets minimum Floor Levels in these areas. Learn more about minimum Floor Levels: Christchurch City Council website.
