A can do atttitude for Kathmandu
Historically, the UK has strong links with Nepal, the UK was the first country to establish an embassy in Nepal and our 200-year relationship with this tiny Asian state has been formalised, firstly with the ‘Treaty for Friendship’ signed in 1923, then by the ‘Treaty for Perpetual Peace and Friendship’ in 1950. The links continue to thrive with the UK providing significant aid and international development to Nepal and with the Gurkhas continuing to be an active regiment of the British army.
We have recently been appointed to act as Adviser to Principal Designer to Kilburn Nightingale on a refurbishment and development scheme at the British Embassy for Nepal in Kathmandu. The scheme will go ahead under British legislation, which means that the CDM 2015 regulations will be applied. The works involve seismic strengthening works to existing buildings and the construction of a new office building and some residential houses.
