Headquarter & Information Centre (Nepal)
Project description for renovation and new positioning
The over 50 years old building of
nowadays RCNP Headquarter station at Kasarah is being
renovated and converted for a principal use as National park´s
Headquarter as well as Information Centre. From rough planning sketches we
received and from several visits by ARCO president Prof.
H. H. Schleich a new concept for the so far only
extensively used building has been given.
for contents eg. electrical
installations and further exhibition details have been drafted and are
submitted to DG Dr. Maskey
and Chief Warden Mr. P. Shrestha.
The suggested future concept for the building is to house a newly to
establish Information Centre together with the Park´s adminstrative needs.
The Information Centre shall contain a presentation of Nepal´s fauna
and flora focusing on RCNP, also on the Park´s history and
conservation concepts. Generation of small income can be realized by
entrance fees, shop with local handicrafts (eg.
carvings, grass woven products, pottery, broschures,
posters, postcards, films, photos, etc.), a coffee shop also offering
snacks, drinks a.o., guided tours around headquarter).
The whole building got new painting, masonry renovation and leakage proived new roof cover. The inner parts will be
painted, equipped with new halogen spot lightening and receive registartion, coffee shop and exhibition as well as new
arrangement of seminar room and staff rooms. Also a small collection room
mainly serving for a wet collection for voucher specimens of invertebrates,
fishes, amphibains and reptiles will be new. The
exhibition will cover approximately 300 m².
