Disaster Resistant Construction Practices

Disaster Resistant construction practices are as important as disaster resistant structural designs. In fact the methodology for construction also should be designed for disaster resistance. We should have proper implementation of the structural details so as to let the structure behave as envisiged. The quality and methodology of construction is equally important. For example we use cover blocks. If the cover blocks are not cast properly in good quality concrete then they facilitate concrete deterioration. Ultimately this affects durability and serviceability of the structure. The Durability and serviceability are the key elements of any structure. Ensuring Quality in construction will enable achieving durability and serviceability as a desired end result.
