Innovative Approach to Assess and Reduce Vulnerability of Nepal’s Housing Stock
PDF File Size: 1.2 MB | Download   
With large number of vulnerable houses, Nepal faces a huge extant risk from future earthquakes. While compliance to the national building codes is increasing for the new buildings, existing non-code compliant buildings pose a huge threat to the occupants. It has been difficult to promote retrofitting of residential buildings in major urban and urbanizing cities across Nepal. The reasons for this are multi-fold: i) massive volume of existing buildings; ii) requirement of proper physical structural assessment by experienced engineers to determine the safety of the structure or necessity of structural strengthening – retrofitting or demolishing; and iii) absence of practical guidelines and skilled manpower for implementing retrofitting solutions.
