Lombok Restructuring After the Earthquake Disaster through RISHA
Ministry of Public Works and Housing Entrusts WIKA Beton with Lombok Restructuring After the Earthquake Disaster through RISHA
Ministry of Public Works and Housing entrusts WIKA Beton with restructuring of damaged houses after the earthquake that occurred in Lombok in late July and early August through the Simple & Healthy Instant House (RISHA). Experienced as a precast concrete manufacturer in Indonesia since 1997, WIKA Beton is trusted to be one of the suppliers of RISHA components, which is expected to be able to produce about 5,000 housing units in a period of 6 months.
Soon after the disaster struck, WIKA Beton under coordination with the Ministry of Public Works and Housing intensely held a meeting and then produced RISHA precast concrete components at the mobile plant in Lombok. The production team has distributed the first RISHA precast concrete components and finished building 5 housing units on October 5, 2018 and is currently in the process of building 5 other housing units. The effort that WIKA Beton did is one of the manifestations of caring for the victims of the disaster.
Description of RISHA
RISHA or Simple & Healthy Instant House is a house with the knock down concept that its construction process is done by combining concrete components using bolts within 24 hours with only 3 workers. RISHA is a patent owned by the Ministry of Public Works and Housing to meet housing needs in Indonesia, which reaches 600,000 homes / year.
In the midst of the implementation of the RISHA program, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing took the initiative to implement RISHA not only to meet housing needs in Indonesia, but also to restructure Lombok after the earthquake disaster occurred on 29 July 2018.
To build and rehabilitate damaged houses, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing invites precasters, including WIKA Beton to become manufacturers of RISHA component in Lombok. WIKA Beton is able to provide as many as 5,000 houses in a period of 6 months.
Based on Research and Development of the Ministry of Public Works and Housing, RISHA has various advantages in building houses including:
- Earthquake resistant
- Environmentally friendly
- Short construction time
- Lightweight components that do not require heavy equipment
- Can be installed to office buildings, health centers, hospitals, schools and others.
