The Christchurch rebuild has been a matter close to international hearts and it is therefore with some pleasure that we are able to acknowledge Anderson Lloyd partner Jen Crawford and her work on the restoration of the Arts Centre of Christchurch. This project, believed to be the largest heritage project currently being undertaken in the world, involves a NZ$290m, seven year post-earthquake program to restore a cluster of heritage buildings and rebuild the city’s cultural heart. Crawford is chair of the Arts Centre of Christchurch Trust Board, devoting her time on a pro bono basis. “Jen is absolutely devoted to the Christchurch Arts Centre and she lives and breathes its restoration,” says Nicky Wagner, MP for Christchurch Central.
