The Rat-Trap Bond Technology
The rat-trap bond technology has been developed by Architect Laurie Baker with the HABITAT Resource Centre in India and is a result of its experimentations in cost-effective housing technologies conducted over 40 years. This technology has been used in India for over 20 years and has been successfully adopted in Sri Lanka by Practical Action in partnership with a local community based organisation called the Rural Centre for Development  
 
Arch Technology
Arches are a common feature in houses today. It is a technology which has been in use for hundreds of years and has withstood the test of time as evidenced by the numerous arches seen in ancient buildings and old houses in Sri Lanka. Masons have been trained by Practical Action on the technology and the practical use of several types of arches, some of which were constructed at Practical Action pilot project sites
