The building contained a good deal of equipment, including a $1M Lidar scanner that was used to map New Zealand quake damage. The instrument was being packaged for shipment to Japan, and was lost in the blaze.

Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to the main two-story building, while saving annexes. All but one of the injured firefighters has been released, and the remaining firefighter underwent non-emergency surgery on his knee.

The New Zealand office employs 240 staff in land surveying, information technology and geospatial technology. As part of a large global organisation, there should be little impact on business. The US parent company has committed to rebuilding in Christchurch.
