Out of the rubble: how can engineers overcome the problems between design and implementation of seismic-resistant schools in rural Nepal?

Jacob Borchers, winner of the Institution’s Pai Lin Li Travel Award 2016, used his grant to research the problems and complexity of implementing the design of seismic-resistant schools in rural Nepal. Numerous organisations face these issues as they attempt to rebuild the country in the wake of the 2015 earthquakes. The research is qualitative: based on interviews with experienced professionals and local residents; and on the observations of the author.
