The PUPR Ministry is currently verifying which families will be needing their houses to be rebuilt using their RISHA method, or Simple Healthy Instant Houses.

The RISHA technology is a house with a modular design, namely the concept of dividing the system into small parts (modules) with an efficient size so that they can be assembled into a large number of different products.

The design of the house building with this modular system can be changed or developed according to the wishes or needs of the occupants, and construction with this technology is very fast.
