Auckland Council continues undertaking rapid building assessments across Tāmaki Makaurau to help determine:
Initial assessments are rapid – taking about 20 minutes – and can sometimes be completed by inspectors from outside the building, without needing to enter.
What will happen after a rapid building assessment
Following a rapid building assessment, a building will receive either a white, yellow or red placard – or sticker.
If you are concerned about your home or building and would like to request a building assessment, please call on 0800 22 22 00.
For a full overview of the flood-damaged building inspections process, including factsheets outlining the placards in more detail and guides to making repairs, visit the Auckland Council website | Building assessments for flood and cyclone damaged properties.
The placards are a legal instruction. Only authorised officials can place, change, remove or advise on removing them. White placards are an exception as they expire 21 days after they are issued and can then be removed by the owner.
If your property has a placard, as we proceed through our recovery operation, you will receive an email from us with a letter attached. This letter confirms your current placard status and your Request for Service (RFS) number. If your placard status changes, you will receive an updated status letter.
