Bamboo Livelihoods Business Enterprise Project
Bamboo for construction and structural application proved successful in International geographies but designing bamboo building and constructing structures has always been a challenge in India. CIBART, supported by Sir Ratan Tata Trust, promote bamboos as a structural material and has made prefab structures, and will take this initiative to a substantial scale level where it can make significant impact in the lives of rural communities.
The objective of this project is to Introduce and popularize pre-fabricated bamboo buildings in India and CIBART is working with Native Konbac Bamboo Products Pvt. Ltd. In construction activities; and with INSPIRATION, a leading architect firm on the design of structures, and for technical guidance.
