Miyamoto Nepal was founded in response to the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that struck Kathmandu on April 25, 2015. In the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, many large organizations stepped up to provide immediate relief by supplying food and water, temporary shelter and medical support. While this support is critical, we provide expert earthquake structural engineering and reconstruction advice quickly, such as assessing whether homes and buildings are safe to re-enter and helping locals develop a plan for rebuilding or retrofitting to seismic standards that will withstand the next large earthquake.
To date, we have more than 90 damage-assessment projects completed for private and public organizations and international agencies and many retrofit projects underway.
We are a global earthquake and structural engineering company that saves lives and positively impacts economies. As part of Miyamoto’s services, capacity building remains a top priority as progress is made toward building a more seismically resilient Nepal. Other services from this office include structural assessments, urban and rural reconstruction, retrofits, structural design for new construction and quality control and construction supervision.
