For the last few years we have been trying to start a pre-fabrication center to make bamboo structures. This is our first attempt! We have been continuously refining our technology so that bamboo construction does not become very labor intensive. Moreover, due to labor shortage in Nepal we have been empowering women to do our work. We are proud of this project because it was initated by our female dominated team headed by Sulava. Our vision is to provide enough skills and technology so that bamboo and earth becom widely accessible as modern construction materials. Our main challenges are grading of the material according to size and strength, providing standardized joints, upgrading of technology so that joints are easy to make and protect against weathering and discoloration. We’d like to thank Sulava, Rita, Srijana, Rammed Hari and Sanjay for their help.
