We are happy to announce that we will be building in Cambodia to design and build a project made from bamboo. Building Trust have a number of sustainable design and build projects in South East Asia in 2016, ranging from schools and housing to wildlife conservation and healthcare. We are offering a hands on participatory workshop where you will gain experience in sustainable building techniques and understand more about humanitarian design while building worthwhile projects that will have a huge benefit to the local community and local wildlife. You will gain an insight into a number of building techniques and architectural styles.
The objectives of the workshop are:
To educate on the principles of sustainable design
To develop a low-cost bamboo structure
To increase awareness of the important uses of bamboo in modern day construction
This is a hands on course and will result in a new bamboo prototype working with others to learn on-site skills such as:
Bamboo framing and roof construction
Bamboo joinery techniques
Treatment process of bamboo
Lessons in bamboo
Wattle and daub walls
When: Sat 11th June - Sat 25th June 2016
More details of the workshop will be announced in the coming weeks but if you would like to register your interest then please send an email to: email@example.com
