Confined Masonry

With regards to the different types of construction being applied in Pakistan, UN Habitat has worked on confined masonry which is being applied in almost all the parts of the country. The aim of this document is to develop and disseminate a guide for construction workers in a simple language which can be kept with the concerned people for proper utilization to achieve the goal of safe construction. It is believed that the guide on confined masonry will ensure adoption of earthquake resistant construction techniques which will certainly help the buildings to perform well during earthquakes and floods to minimize human and material losses.
