Shock Safe Nepal

Shock Safe Nepal (SSN) is an ongoing multidisciplinary project carried out by master students of the Delft University of Technology, with the goal to help rebuilding Nepal earthquake safe. The students have background in several disciplines of the faculties of Civil Engineering and Architecture.

After the devastating earthquakes in Nepal in 2015, a major part of the population was left homeless and many buildings and houses were partly destroyed, resulting in dangerous living and serviceability situations. Two and a half year have passed, and the situation in Nepal has not changed drastically. Particularly in rural areas, many damaged and destroyed buildings have not been repaired or rebuilt. Our goal is to work together with the people from Nepal to develop affordable earthquake resistant housing.

The 6th team of SSN is currently in Nepal until February, building upon the work of the previous teams.
