Webinar | Realizing the vision of 'Housing for All'

India

Food, Clothing and Shelter (in Hindi: Roti, Kapada aur Makaan) are the basic needs for every human being. Providing affordable housing to citizens is reckoned as one of the most important goals of many governments worldwide.

In India, the central government has set for itself an ambitious target to provide ‘Housing for All’ by 2022. The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), as the initiative is known, has expanded its wings to fulfill the housing needs of the mid-income group, besides the economically weaker sections (EWS) and low-income group (LIG).

Construction firms can leverage technology for rapid construction of economical and eco-friendly houses and put the nation on the path of rapid economic growth. Tech can assist in various ways and a great example is the use of prefab structures and materials.

Precast construction is a cost-efficient, fast and sustainable building technology that can greatly benefit such large, affordable housing projects, without any compromise on the quality.

Affordable housing starts with the design phase itself, an integrated design approach by the Client is very much essential during the early phase of the project, in which the client, architect, structural engineer and the Precaster need to sit together to design the houses in a modular concept. The application of 'Constructible' 3D modeling combined with the element of time (4D) and cost estimation (5D), allows greater degree of quality control over estimations needed for Precast construction and closer monitoring and control of costs.

Such a model-based workflow, from design to execution, minimizes costly surprises and wastage, improves efficiency and quality, and ensures that the correct, error-free elements are delivered in the right place at the right time.

 

Join us for this webinar to learn how precast/prefab tech can assist in profitable, affordable housing projects:

  • Standardization, Procurement, and Technological aspect
  • Documentation and Design aspects
  • Estimate Accurately and Manage Risk when Bidding
  • Link with production machinery, transfer information efficiently and avoid human errors to enable mass production
  • Transportation and Logistics planning
