What we do

Build-Up offers support in critical phases of disaster relief, recovery, development, risk reduction and preparedness projects. We cover all stages of the project cycle: from assessment over project design, implementation and management to evaluations. We strengthen your team from the inside, undertaking short or longer term missions to the field as necessary.


A sample of the type of work we can deliver:


  • Different types of assessments and surveys e.g. needs assessment, damage assessment, market surveys, mid- and end-term evaluations
  • Resourceful and strategic thinking to develop projects and redirect projects that got stuck
  • Develop and manage construction projects with an emphasis on participatory owner driven approaches and integrated wash activities
  • Project and context adapted training programs and capacity building activities
  • Shelter research and management of innovation processes such as approaches for urban areas or optimised shelter design
  • General project design and implementation in the areas of shelter and settlements, WASH, DM, construction management, urban planning, coordination and capacity building


Please find in the CORE COMPETENCIES section the expert areas we are active in.
