Joining you on your journey to Resilient Housing

Improve Your Housing, Before or After Disaster

Faced with reconstruction after an earthquake or hurricane?

When a disaster strikes, there is no time to lose. There are lower cost, locally preferred alternatives to temporary or transitional shelter. Retrofitting damaged buildings and rebuilding permanent housing have become the go-to’s for most post-disaster housing reconstructions.

Wouldn’t it be better to prevent disaster?

And improve living conditions at the same time? Existing home strengthening programs are gaining popularity and scale around the world.
