Following the launch of Vaishnavi Serene in Bengaluru, Katerra, the Silicon Valley based construction company, will take up another project with Vaishnavi Group. Katerra will be constructing the 521,400 square feet Vaishnavi Tech Square by implementing integrated offsite manufacturing technology alongside the concept of DfMA (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly) at Iballur Village, Beguru Hobli in Bengaluru South Taluk. Building components for this project will be factory-made at the company’s offsite manufacturing facility in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu.
Vaishnavi Tech Square will feature ground plus 10 floors of office space, a beautifully designed ground floor with lobby, two basements floors and a multi-level car parking. Capitalising on Katerra’s offsite construction technology, this project is scheduled to be designed and built in the next 12 months.
Sharing his thoughts on the need for technology driven construction to meet the retail, housing, education institutions and hospitals rising in India owing to growing urbanisation, Nejeeb Khan, Head Design and Business Strategy-India, Katerra, said, “Across the globe, Data Driven Design, Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), Modular Construction, Offsite Manufacturing, Intelligent Buildings and Construction Software are gaining prominence as they enable faster construction and better quality structures. Today, every MNC wishes to have their presence in India, which indicates that there will be a huge requirement for offices and tech parks across the country in the coming years. Thus, technology driven offsite manufacturing will help in catering to this demand within a shorter timeline. At Katerra, we develop design and technology-driven solutions that will help reduce delivery time up to two-third, thereby speeding up the construction process to deliver smarter and better commercial spaces for our clients. Katerra is proud to partner with Vaishnavi Group yet again for building Vaishnavi Tech Square with latest off-site manufacturing techniques.”
Speaking about the project, CN Govindaraju, Managing Director, Vaishnavi Group, said, “We, at Vaishnavi Group, strongly believe that new-age global design-driven precast construction technology is the future for developers like us. We are delighted to partner with Katerra for the second time for our commercial project – Vaishnavi Tech Square Katerra owing to their expertise in building both residential and commercial projects. We are confident that Katerra, across all parameters from design, manufacturing and installation of the precast elements and of course, its promise of timely delivery with impeccable quality will help us develop a world-class commercial office space within the city.”
