WIKA Constructs Temporary Housing in Palu and Lombok

As part of the effort to accelerate disaster recovery in Lombok and Palu, WIKA through its subsidiary, PT Wijaya Karya Bangunan Gedung Tbk. ["WEGE"], has built temporary houses in Sigi and East Lombok.

Although both are similarly temporary housing, WEGE implemented different designs that is suitable with the local soil features in Lombok and Sigi. In Lombok, the temporary housing used a semi-detached design to ensure the houses' robustness and resilience against strong winds.

Because of soil liquefaction that occurred in Sigi, the temporary housing used stilt-house design to reduce the impact of soil movement. The use of strong and lightweight materials, such as concrete and lightweight steel, is among WEGE's strategy to provide temporary housing that is both habitable and safe.

Prior to the project in Taiwan, WIKA has a number of on-going projects abroad, such as the Clarin Bridge in the Philippines, Limbang Bridge in Malaysia, Lodgement in Algeria, Presidential Palace in Niger, Yangon Circular Railway in Myanmar, and Oecusse Airport in Timor-Leste.
