Earthquakes are devastating and can cause massive structural damage to properties that aren’t designed to handle them. This natural disaster affects millions of lives each year and results in billions in property damage. Communities with fewer resources and support from the government are particularly affected by earthquakes. At Bond Building Systems, we provide earthquake-resistant building solutions that can help communities recover from this disaster.
What Are The Benefits of Earthquake Resistant Structures?
Earthquake resistant structures are specifically designed to withstand intense vibrations and remain intact. These buildings have several significant benefits, including:
1. The Building is Useful Post Disaster
Buildings that are structurally sound and secure are valuable in earthquake-affected areas. These earthquake-resistant buildings can offer shelter and comfort to the community as they recover and make plans to rebuild their town. Structures like hospitals, schools, and community centers can be instrumental in this aspect.
2. Limited Structural Damage
No construction is 100% earthquake-proof, and most buildings will sustain some form of damage. Structures designed to withstand earthquakes are resilient and sustain minimal damage. It means you don't need to spend a lot of money on repairs and can direct essential resources on other necessities.
3. Life Safety
A secure building that’s designed to withstand earthquakes can help keep people safe during and after the disaster. People inside the building will be safer and less likely to sustain injuries. These tremor-proof buildings are also more structurally secure after the disaster, and there is no alarming damage that can pose a risk to people seeking shelter in them.
4. Helps The Local Economy
The local economy can take a lot of time to recover from a high-intensity earthquake. Business owners need to invest resources in repairing their offices, stores, and commercial property because they need to be open to the public. Earthquake-safe buildings can help a community recover faster and become financially stable quicker.
5. Withstand Multiple Earthquakes
Just because a building can withstand one earthquake doesn't mean it is capable of withstanding another one. Regular buildings can become fatigued and eventually collapse if multiple earthquakes hit the area. That's why it is a good idea to construct quake-resistant buildings in tremor-prone regions.
The buildings lower insurance risk, which reduces the premium you pay. Our earthquake-resistant building system is also cost-effective, which means you save a lot of money in the long-run.
How Do We Help?
This tremor-resistant building technology is affordable, easy-to-use, and we can transport it to any destination in the world. We don't just deliver to vulnerable areas like Alaska, Arkansas, Hawaii, California, etc., in the US, but also to international destinations like the Caribbean.
We can ship components for sixty-four homes of around 600 sq ft in a small 20ft container. You only need about 3 to 4 people with minimal training to set up this system and construct a property.
