More than $5.5 million has been spent on maintaining and repairing Christchurch’s brand new justice and emergency services precinct.
The Ministry of Justice said the cost of repairs was not out of the ordinary given the size of the complex, which houses Civil Defence, Corrections, court staff and first responders.
But the Public Service Association has hit back, saying its members are annoyed at the disruption, and the building not only has too many repairs, but it is also too small.
The precinct, constructed by Fletcher Building, opened in September 2017. There have been more than 1800 unplanned repairs since – excluding the 86 times vandalism damage has been fixed.
