Civil Engineering Department of SSUET organized a workshop on Green Housing Affordable Resilient

The Civil Engineering Department of SSUET organized a workshop on Green Housing Affordable Resilient (GHAR): Challenges and Opportunities with guest speakers Ar. Babar Mumtaz and Dr. Engr. Suhaib Ahmad.

A distinguished Alumnus of the University of Illinois, USA, and world-recognized civil and environmental engineer, Dr. Suhaib Ahmad said that green technology is considered environment friendly helping to reduce the adverse impacts of buildings on the environment due to existing conventional construction practices.

Eminent Architect, Urban Planner/Development Economist, and former Director of Bartlett’s DPU, University College London, Babar Mumtaz, said that housing is a universally acknowledged basic right. Its supply, availability, and affordability continue to be one of Pakistan’s major issues. Up to 70% of Pakistan’s housing is “sub-standard” and in “slums”. Pakistan’s Housing needs could be better met through the development of Green Housing Affordable Resilient (GHAR).

Registrar SSUET, Syed Sarfraz Ali said that Green Housing Affordable Resilient is a challenging issue. Vernacular architecture is very popular in the present era. It is an architectural design that reflects the geographic and cultural context of the site and surroundings, focusing on local construction with traditional and regional materials.

The Dean of the Faculty of Civil Engineering & Architecture, Prof. Dr. Mir Shabbar Ali, said that all universities are supposed to provide leadership and exposure to new knowledge, ultimately finding the solutions to address the challenges and avail the opportunities.
