Godrej Construction has teamed up with Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions to create and commercialise an innovative 3D Construction Printing (3DCP) technology in India. The collaboration seeks to be a leader in the creation of sustainable infrastructure projects, housing solutions, disaster relief structures, national defence-related applications, and a variety of public amenities in the United States and abroad. Godrej Construction and Tvasta have created a PoC for a sustainable and inclusive bus shelter utilising 3DCP technology. The bus shelter was 3D printed in 32 hours and put together in eight hours on site. In order to promote the adoption of circular economy ideas in the construction sector, they developed a sustainable concrete mix design that contains roughly 30 per cent recycled concrete aggregates generated from concrete waste debris. Commenting on the introduction of 3D Construction Printing Technology Platform in India, Anup Mathew, Senior Vice President and Business Head, Godrej Construction, said, “To promote a circular economy, we have also jointly developed an innovative concrete mix-design that uses a significant proportion of Recycled Concrete Aggregates (RCA) as a part of the raw material used in the 3DCP Technology. This newly developed 3DCP concrete mix offers great promise for developing and using construction materials with a lower embodied carbon, which can help us design and develop innovative solutions for a more sustainable built environment. Our endeavour will now be to jointly engage with key industry stakeholders for exploring appropriate opportunities for the deployment of this 3DCP Technology.” Vidyashankar C, Co-Founder and COO, Tvasta, has added, “We’re happy to partner with a pioneer and thought leader in the building materials sector such as Godrej Construction. We are optimistic that this synergy will aid in the rapid scale-up of our technology platform. In turn, this will undoubtedly extend the range of construction solutions that Tvasta offers for the many distinct usecases in the country.”
