GSBN:Re: Earthquake Pakistan and SB



G 'day GSBN Balers

We have been approached by an Architect in Lahore to look at going to
Pakistan to conduct a workshop or two in straw bale building.  This is
in aid of the recent earthquake and the rebuilding process.

Before we make any plans to go I wanted to see if any of you would have
any advice on structures suitable to withstand earthquakes and if you
have any comments on load bearing versus frame infill?

I have been looking at the following web site with some interest:

Any ideas will be welcome so I can be better prepared this includes the
type of render as well as the structure.  There is also a chance that
Rotary may take up the cause and raise funds for some of the long term
rebuilding.

Kind regards
