Short Description:

Overall goal

The objective is the design, planning and the tender document for a First Class Training Hotel as a part of the overall HTMTI project. The type of construction, functional performance, design, and technical resources of the hotel are intended to make an innovative contribution to the development efforts in the tourism sector.

The building will be developed as a prototype of a low-energy structure, and the component elements of the building technology required for the desired standard will be adapted to the requirements of this type of construction. The development and planning of the project should be such so as to allow for the incorporation of basic elements of Bhutanese architecture. The construction materials used and the design selected should accord with the criteria of environmental compatibility and the capacity for regeneration.

The objectives are that the knowledge gained from this project could be transferred to buildings being constructed in the future, as well as a possible transfer of outside technical civil engineering know-how to Bhutanese partners.

  • Purpose/ sector code: classifies the specific area of the recipient’s economic or social structure, funded by a bilateral contribution.
  • Tied/Untied: Untied aid is defined as loans and grants whose proceeds are fully and freely available to finance procurement from all OECD countries and substantially all developing countries.
