UC Quake Centre / Resilient Organisations / UC Seismic / SCIRT
Following the 2010 and 2011 Canterbury Earthquakes, the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) was formed to manage the repair and replacement of Christchurch’s horizontal infrastructure, i.e., waterways, roads and bridges. A few years into the programme, the SCIRT Learning Legacy project was initiated, to ensure the learnings from the programme were captured, documented, and disseminated.
Putting the audience at the centre of the design
Working with open source technology specialists, Catalyst, the information as organised in a way that meant they could apply their expertise to build a visually appealing, easily searchable public website to share the learning.
Audience analysis and the creation of ‘personas’ to reflect the target audience were key elements that informed the design of a user-centred web experience, which went live early 2017 at www.scirtlearninglegacy.org.nz
What successful collaboration looks like
This project brought together several different organisations, each working in different ways and with different priorities and focus. However, the result was a cohesive, easily navigated website that benefits the international community around improved planning and implementation of disaster recovery. Like-Minded were proud to contribute to the project and show our commitment to collaborative work practices.
