There was widespread destruction in Fiji when Winston, a Category 5 cyclone, hit in 2016.
School buildings were among the infrastructure systems affected and sustained extensive damage due to Cyclone Winston.
In Rakiraki, traditional builders and methodology could not respond to and cope with the degree of the damage.
So, students held classes inside makeshift shelters, which later became waterlogged as they were used beyond the intended limit and season.
The school head and pupils were worried that these tents would not last if another cyclone came.
There was a need to construct a more robust and more resilient infrastructure in a short timeframe.
Watch how the FRAMECAD system rebuilt the school buildings better and faster in this video.
FRAMECAD is a partner of the University of Auckland Climate Adaptation Platform and provides an excellent example of developing new and alternative methods and materials to assist in infrastructure development and post-natural disaster repairs and rebuilds.
