National Building Research Organization

The National Building Research Organization (NBRO) was established under the Ministry of Local Government, Housing and Construction in March 1984. In February 2007, NBRO was brought under purview of the Ministry of Disaster Management & Human Rights. NBRO was not established as a typical state – sector organization by a separate Act of Parliament, rather it was established by a cabinet decision. Therefore, with the cabinet approval an Interim Management Committee (IMC) was established to guide and direct the administrative, financial and management functions of NBRO

The prime aim of the National Building Research Organisation (NBRO) is to spread and promote culture of disaster mitigation, preparedness and safety through innovative disaster education, research and training by rendering highly specialized professional services at the cutting edge of science and technology. Within the last 25 years, NBRO has been grown as an institution offering excellent technical services. At present, customers from wide range of disciplines from both private and state sector organizations seek services of NBRO. These clients have obtained our services purely through the trust and reputation built over the past 25 years with virtually no marketing or advertising strategies. We are fortunate to have them as our clients who have always contributed positively to enhance our strengths in many ways. At present we are equipped with modern laboratories, equipments and specialized manpower.
