How Innovation in Construction Technology Changes the Face of Indian Real Estate

Construction industry is a major contributor to the country’s GDP and also one of the largest employment generators. Construction technology is fast evolving in the future of Indian real estate sector. Time and again, due to the lack of skilled man-power, rising prices, delay in construction and scarcity of land in TIER I cities, the developers are compelled to look at other technologies apart from time and tested conventional methods.

How Innovation in Construction Technology Changes the Face of Indian Real Estate

For undertaking mass housing works, it is necessary to have innovative technologies which are capable of fast construction and deliver good quality structure in a cost effective manner. Certain systems are in vogue and more contractors are trying to bring in new technologies. These are based on the type of construction, namely the in-situ or pre-cast construction. Certain patented systems based on imported technologies such as Mascon System [Canada] or the Mivan System [Malaysia], have appeared on the Indian market scene in the recent years.

In these systems traditional beam and column construction is eliminated and instead walls and slabs are cast at site in one operation by specially designed equipment. Rapid construction of multiple units of a repetitive type can be achieved with a sort of assembly line product with a deployment of a few semi-skilled labors.

Some of the advanced technologies available in India catering to the speed of construction are:

The Prefabrication Technology- The Pre-cast concrete elements in roofs, floors and walls have become more common as these eliminate shuttering, centering and plastering labor and saves material cost.

Tunnel Formwork Technology- It is a technology for constructing large number of housing within short time using steel forms to construct slabs and walls in one continuous pour.

Outinard Technology- Superior engineering is the essence of this technology. With the use of high quality steel and high performance quality control result in a vastly superior wall form system.

Mascon Technology- This system is used for forming the cast in place concrete structure of a building. Innovation technology can be used at various steps of development. It does not restrict itself to construction, but its various forms can be used in management, infra and in other development sectors.
