Buildings can now be developed within a year using new tech

Under the Light House Projects (LHPs), nearly 66% of the 6,368 affordable houses are being constructed, using new technologies that ensure completion of these buildings in less than a year, primarily focusing on pre-fabrication technologies.

In controlled factory environments, most parts of the projects are being completed, which are further brought to the sites for assembling to ensure good finishing and completion of these buildings in less than a year.

A total of 3,284 multi-storey flats at Lucknow, Agartala, and Rajkot are being constructed which have their factories at Indore, Bhilai, Pune, and Bhopal. Similarly, in Indore, another 1,024 flats are under construction; the work is at full speed in Nagpur, Pune, Bhilai, and Hyderabad factories.

The government has taken up six pilot housing projects for the first time using new technologies to make multi-storey flats up to 13 floors in just one year across six cities, principally concentrating on pre-fabrication technologies. Recently the companies assured the PM to complete the projects within the estimated timeline.

Prime Minister Modi launched the pilot projects on January 1 to promote the large adoption of new technologies for more accelerated construction. The official said that these technologies would provide solutions to many problems as most of the work is done in a factory-controlled environment as construction is one of the key contributors to air pollution.

In Rajkot, France's monolithic concrete technology is being used to build houses strong enough to face natural disasters. Similarly, in Lucknow, Canada's technology is being used, which will not use paint and plaster.

The pre-cast concrete system technology from the US and Finland is being used in Chennai to make houses quicker and more affordable. Flats are being built in Ranchi using the German 3D construction system. Before constructing the whole structure, each room will be constructed separately.

New Zealand's technology is used to build houses with steel frames in Agartala to combat earthquakes.

Fire safety in high-rise façade systems

The external wall system (EWS) is made up of the outside wall of a building, including cladding and insulation. Of focus now is the fire safety of such external wall systems in multi-storeyed buildings where fire hazards are considerably higher than low-rise buildings. Main and sub-systems of EWS are to be considered holistically to understand the risk of fire loads created due to the design and materials used in the EWS where fire passive and resistant systems are absent, or lesser in content. External Wall System Components The EWS includes all components such as framing, glazing ..
