The idea of establishing BHRC was formed in 1971 in the framework of “United Nations Development Program (UNDP)”, until 1973, which is the beginning of BHRC formal activities, research duties on building and housing were being fulfilled by “the department of building studies and regulations” at the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (MHUD). In 1971, this duty was transferred to the BHRC based on an agreement between “MHUD” and “UNDP”. In 1973, BHRC started its formal activities after completion of construction activities of BHRC administrative building and laboratories for physics and chemistry of materials.
