A tool for responding to disasters

The CSTB has used its expertise in all aspects of construction to develop a specific method for crisis management affecting buildings.

Authorities requested the CSTB's technical expertise during several disasters affecting buildings, and this experience led to the development of a methodology to guide crisis management.

This methodology applies to most crises affecting buildings and their users and draws on all of the CSTB's skills, particularly regarding structures, natural, health and fire hazards, pathologies related to energy and environment, and improper performance or significant deterioration of structural parts.
