Construction techniques

When a disaster affects housing, there are important choices to be made in the rebuilding effort related to the design and construction technology to be employed and whether to repair or retrofit housing as opposed to demolishing it. These choices must take into account environmental, economic, social, institutional, and technical factors. The size and scale of the project as well as the geographic concentration of the affected area also play a significant role in the decision-making process. Ignoring these factors or making the wrong decisions about them can significantly affect whether or not stakeholders are satisfied with the reconstruction and whether or not the resulting housing solution is sustainable.
