Assistance for Project work
Hello Thomas Viruvelil sir,
I am into my 5th year, B.Arch and I am a student from SPA Hyderabad.
Your work is interesting and of great help.
I am greatly interested to work on a Heritage Hotel, and I am doing my prelim. studies on this subject. It would be of GREAT help to me, to have valuable inputs from you regarding this.
I am so interested to know if there are similar projects to work on and study; and to have a nice experience,of the subject.
I am in search of "suitable" buildings "old and traditional" which fit into the slot to develop through an adaptive reuse. Had gone through the GOVT.rules about classification of Heritage hotels, and realised I need to have a building aged before 1935 or so for a project like this.Hope that you guys could help me with this aspect at the earliest.
The other topic I have in my mind is a "Heritage Homestay" for the tourists. It would be nice if you help me out with possible sites and which are suitable for such a development. And even more helpful if i could get some inputs about any old homes or palaces that are going to be renewed or converted to hotels. :)
I wish to have some valuable inputs regarding this.
Waiting for a positive response.

It will be better and more meaningful if you can visit Cochin for effective interaction with me and during the visit I can suggest buildings that can meet your interest for specific study
Assessing soil condition
Dear Mr. Viruvelil Hormise Thomas
My name is Gino Itty George. I am currently designing a house in Thottackadu, Karuckachal, Kottayam. My client wasn't able to procure sufficient details of the site and I am a bit worried. What would be the soil condition of that place? He says he has rubber plantation nearby. Will the site have Laterite soil or Alluvial soil? And in each case what type of foundation would be applicable?
Waiting for your reply.
I need to visit site to give you my assessment on the site conditions
