AKAH is advancing a socially and environmentally suitable construction in the harsh and disaster susceptible and vulnerable geographies.

Some of salient features include geotechnical investigations, better seismic resilient designs and materials’ prescription, incorporation of green spaces, along with passive design measures to leverage local climate conditions to reduce energy consumption and maintain a comfortable indoor environment.

These measures enhance resilience, curtail environmental degradation, and contribute to the socio-economic well-being of the underprivileged mountainous communities.
