Banquet Pavilion for Panigram Resort

Led a team of 10 local laborers in Bengali language to construct a pavilion on the river without any electricity or modern tools. I designed and oversaw the manufacturing of all furnishings, plumbing, and structural details. Acted as estimator and procured all materials in surrounding villages. Originally designed to serve as a lunch banquet pavilion, it has acted as a temporary office, a classroom, a testing center, and a community "park."
