Partner Description


Partner Description


PORTAL PREFABS ARE DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED TO BE SAFE, WHILE MAINTAINING THE TRADITIONAL LOOKS OF A LOCAL VILLAGE HOME.

 
 
EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT

EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT

The strength and flexibility of steel makes it the go to material for earthquake resistance—our steel frame and CGI roof resists collapse in the event of seismic activity. 

Our Prefabs are enclosed by a steel band and are completely encased with chainlink fencing giving the structure Gabian Basket-style protection. Should the walls fall during an earthquake, they will fall outward, leaving occupants safe from harm.

EASY TO BUILD

EASY TO BUILD

No welding or special equipment is required. The entire structure is bolted together and can be completed in just 1 to 2 days. 

All pieces are easily stackable allowing for ultimate portability. Two complete Prefabs fit in a single Mahindra Mini-Truck. 

Recipients are responsible for finishing the walls, giving them a sense of ownership, responsibility, and customizability.

AFFORDABLE

AFFORDABLE

Portal Prefabs are designed to be accessible to those who need them most. Our basic units range from NPR 113,000 (for a 1 Bay) to NPR 277,000 (for a 4 Bay) and are inclusive of VAT.  

Overall costs are greatly reduced by salvaging used windows, doors, and walls from the recipients' old homes or buildings.

MADE IN NEPAL

MADE IN NEPAL

Our Prefabs are designed and built entirely in Nepal and are providing employment to local Nepali men and women. 

 All parts, materials, and tools are sourced locally from Nepali distributers, hardware shops, and steel manufacturers. 

By allowing homeowners to build their own walls using traditional building materials, Portal Prefabs maintain the look and feel of culturally appropriate and traditional buildings.

Prefab Impact


Prefab Impact


ON THE GROUND IN NEPAL

Portal Prefab buildings have been utilized in 10 earthquake affected districts of Nepal. By partnering with local NGOs, Portal Prefab has been able to ensure that their buildings are distributed to those who need them most.

 

INCOME GENERATION IN NUWAKOT DISTRICT

In 2016, Portal Prefab partnered with Five14, a local organization dedicated to fighting human trafficking through tourism and community development work. Five14 built 25 Portal Prefab structures in a vulnerable area of Nuwakot District. These Prefabs are not only serving as new homes to families, but they also are being used as homestays--a welcome new source of income.
