The ground is being prepared to construct a consolidated office block to house the Karura Forester and FKF Staff. Limuru Road Gate A parking will be reduced for a while.
The project is part of a long-term plan for improving efficiency of operations by having the Kenya Forest Service Karura Chief Forester, his or her deputy, and the KFS rangers on assignment to Karura co-located with FKF staff.
Currently, the Forester’s office sits within the 50-hectare KFS Headquarters enclave on the southeastern corner of the forest. Since KWS and FKF jointly manage Karura, it will be much more efficient when the offices are within a few seconds of each others. Response time for security matters and urgent infrastructure issues will be considerably reduced.
Mr. Tim Vaulkhard is volunteering his time to oversee the project. He has enlisted the time and talent of Triad Architects and Planners and Barker and Barton surveyors to help realise the project at cost as a CSR contribution towards the improved and sustained management of Karura Forest.
