According to Post Disaster Need Assessment Report published by National Planning Commission, Nepal:

NYF has already constructed 26 seismically safe classrooms and 17 are under construction in Sindhupalchowk and Gorkha, using light weight prefabricated materials. Based on the test models, NYF has now come up with a modified design which costs USD 9 per sq. ft. The design meets the building codes set by the Government and is also safer, faster and cheaper to construct compared to the RCC system which costs at least USD 30 per sq. ft. to make it earthquake resistant.
