Partner Housing Australasia (Building) Incorporated1 offers pro-bono design services, project management and some funding to organisations involved in the construction of housing and village infrastructure. It is particularly suited to rebuilding in the wake of damage caused by cyclones, earthquakes and tsunamis.
In particular, Partner Housing offers to implement a program of systematic improvements for housing and village infrastructure, by incorporating external roof anchors and tie ropes, cyclone washers, internal anchors and bracing and subfloor bracing.
The proposed program would be integrated into the general building program funded by other NGOs and aid programs.
The proposed program is modelled on the successful roof anchorage scheme currently being implemented in the Cook Islands by Partner Housing, Cook Islands Red Cross and Australian Red Cross.
