A builder's observations and views at Greymouth
From my observations of earthquake damage in Greymouth, the main contributing cause was the age of the buildings the lack of maintenance and poor sub-soil on which many buildings have been erected. Over the years there appears to have been little or no thought to appropriate building design, or to rectifying the position in which the area now finds itself.
