This book describes principles and construction techniques for builders, householders and communities who are building in hazard-prone areas. The principles are clearly and simply presented- and in a form which can be adapted for use in training or public information campaigns - with an emphasis on improving hazard-resistance at minimum cost; and the book concentrates on those principles which are universally applicable. It includes sections on site safety; building safely in brick and block; building safely in earth and stone; building safely in timber; building safely in reinforced concrete- and building a safe roof. This book is part of the Building for Safety Initiative of the Overseas Development Administration of the UK government, which aims to bring the knowledge of how to build safely to those who need that knowledge most. The project was devised and executed by Cambridge Architectural Research Limited and the Disaster Management Centre of Oxford Brookes University. This volume from Cambridge Architectural Research, is one of four which the Building for Safety team have produced for this initiative.
