Construction and maintenance of masonry houses
Peru is located in a seismic area. From time to time earthquakes occur which affect inadequately constructed houses, causing major damage and in many cases partial or total collapse.
In this booklet we will show you how to build earthquakeresistant houses. Remember the importance of consulting a Civil Engineer before preparing your drawings and constructing your house.
