Online PR News – 06-January-2014 – New Delhi – Supertech Limited is the first real estate developer to introduce a new innovation in construction called the Precast Technology. Considering the challenges faced in traditional style of construction, Supertech, after immense research and effort has launched this technology under the brand name of Supertech Precast Technology Private Limited.
Real Estate and construction industry forms an imperative place in the Indian economy with incomparable contribution of 8-10 per cent in the GDP. At present, Global economy is facing severe slowdown followed by cash crunch and disturbing developmental targets of economies world over. So, with prevailing scenario, infrastructure remains a top priority for addressing development gaps as it is considered most potent with a potential of lifting economy from the slump.
To escalate the developmental process and expansion of our towns and cities, there is a greater need for faster deliverables and lower costs in the construction industry. In such a scenario, technology that can be trusted, cost effective and has unvarying quality is the need of the hour. Thus, the technologies of “Precast” and “Jump Form” have been introduced in the sector.
Supertech, being the pioneers in Precast Construction will offer the technology to other players in the industry for the construction of high rise, low rise, villas, townships and many more structures.
R. K. Arora, Chairman & Managing Director of Supertech Limited opined about this technology – why there is a need of such a technology and how does this work.
In precast construction, the structures are not made of mortar and cement but of beams, columns, panels, slabs and standard concrete. This concrete is cast into a reusable mold, cured and then along with the beams, slabs, panels and columns is transported to the construction site and erected to form a structure. Such construction does not need plastering as the surface made is very smooth and requires very less maintenance. The technology strengthens the overall solidness of the house much more than a traditional house. With the use of this technology, a hindrance-free construction can be carried out in any season saving up to 64% of time as compared to the construction time of a brick house.
Another very important mechanism in the construction industry is the Jump Form. By introducing the jump form technology, the construction process of high rise buildings can be fastened as it is able to add one floor in every half an hour. A versatile formwork system minimizes the need for different components therefore meeting and exceeding the demands of the modern-day job site in a simple way. Fewer individual components ultimately lead to faster forming.
These new age construction practices are considered to be revolutionary methods in the construction industry. These are widely used in the construction of high rise buildings, flyovers, theaters, and dams.
Advantages of these technologies.
• The use of this technology expedites the construction work
• The quality of the construction is better, compared to normal method
• Better health and safety measures are arranged and managed at the building site
• It is independent of weather conditions
• The precast panels help in creating bigger carpet area.
• The use of this technology does not need plastering because it makes the surface very smooth
• The external structural frame is constructed normally within six floors of the core
• Internal slabs and stairs can be constructed with the core walls
• Site personnel are protected at all times form falling and from strong winds when working at height due to the fact that both the working level and one or two levels immediately below that are completely enclosed by panels
These technologies are collectively actively being used in Europe, Dubai, Malaysia, Singapore and many other countries worldwide and have now started to gain momentum in India. Given these advantages, techniques can be incorporated in the construction of bigger projects in India so that it helps construction companies in delivering better results which ultimately will help the people at large.
