Demonstration project for post-disaster construction (in line with international standard)

The project adopts the minimum standards in humanitarian response of the Sphere Project and relevant guiding principles from QSAND (Quantify Sustainability in the Aftermath of Disasters, a self-assessment tool developed by BRE Trust on behalf of IFRC). In collaboration with sustainable construction experts from Mainland universities and humanitarian response organizations, CCMCCF supports demonstration construction projects on emergency shelters and accommodation facilities in post-disaster transition/reconstruction and recovery stages.

CCMCCF is working with BRE Trust, Loughborough University and Beijing Jiaotong University (BJTU), in accordance with QSAND assessment criteria, to develop and build multi-functional solar-powered workstations and temporary transitional accommodation, so as to help local villagers deal with disasters, reduce the health risks faced by those affected and work together to realize the long-term sustainable post-disaster recovery and reconstruction.
Throughout the project, we will improve the design of sustainable emergency shelters and accommodation, making full use of solar energy and other renewable resources to achieve energy conservation and saving. The design will adopt a phased solution to gradually improve the post-disaster dwellings.
BJTU will be competing for the upcoming Solar Decathlon China 2021 with this project. In response to the global call for sustainable development, CCMCCF also supports BJTU in talent cultivation, technology development and academic exchanges. It is expected that the efforts can help people become more resilient to natural disasters and build a healthy, safe and comfortable living environment.
