KESNIK

The Kerala State Nirmithi Kendra (KESNIK), set up in 1989, is a pioneering organization in the practice and propagation of Cost Effective and Environment Friendly construction techniques. Cost Effective Environment Friendly (CEEF) technology propounded by KESNIK became a practical alternative to the high priced existing processes and served as a relief to thousands in dilemma. Nirmithi utilizes locally available materials thereby economizing costs without compromising on the durability and strength of the structure.

Broadly the objectives of Kerala State Nirmithi Kendra are as follows:


1. Transfer of technology from lab to land
2. Dissemination of these technologies to the masses
3. Training (locals/beneficiaries) in alternate building technology options
4. Implementing/demonstrating these technologies by undertaking construction and consultancy projects.

The relevance & effectiveness of the Nirmithi model was internationally recognized at the 14th session of the United Nations Commission on Human Settlements (UNCHS) held at Nairobi, Kenya in 1993.

In 1996, during the Second United Conference on Human Settlements, Nirmithi was selected as ‘Global Best Practice’ by the United Nations for its initiative in the field of sustainable human settlements development.
