1.8 Nepal Building Code Project


  • This US$0.8m project involved the preparation and implementation of a National Building Code for Nepal including construction guidelines for simple buildings.

  • The development of alternative building materials and technologies to improve earthquake resistance was also a key output of the project.

  • The project required the assessment of the seismic hazard and the seismic risk of building construction in Nepal including the development of earthquake design strategies and philosophies for this developing country.

  • Beca has been instrumental in developing a greater awareness of earthquake engineering in Nepal through the formation of a local Earthquake Engineering Society and has recently supported a Nepalise national to attend post graduate engineering studies at a New Zealand university.
