Bholu 14 was located on a site that had been previously used as a dumping ground for the community which resulted in difficult soil conditions to build on. Due to these conditions, it was decided to use lightweight construction. This was not only a structurally logical approach, but also allowed for the structure to be dismantled and re-used elsewhere in the event the site would be reclaimed by the government in years to come. Bamboo was the primary construction material used in the building, for its sustainability and as it is a readily available material within Ahmedabad.
