BCC showcases its pre-cast technology for Bharat City

In a never before event in Indian real estate industry, BCC Infrastructures showcased construction of a 2-3 BHK flat using world-class German pre-cast technology, within half a day before a live audience comprising of customers, prominent players of real estate industry and media at Bharat City, Indraprastha Yojna, Ghaziabad.


Expressing his joy on this occasion Kumar Bharat, Director, BCC Infrastructure said, “Timely delivery is a major concern for home buyers in India as people don’t want the dual burden of rent and EMI. To speed up the quality construction process considerably we have tied up with Germany’s leading precast construction company “WECKENMANN” for Bharat City flats from Phase II onwards. As we believe in gaining trust of our customers by fulfilling all commitments and keeping utmost transparency in our work, we are organizing this live construction of a 2-3 BHK flat in just half a day. This event will give everyone a model idea on how this construction technique will speed up the construction process and also strengthen the quality of construction. At Bharat City, we strive to provide best-in-class facilities at the most affordable rates to our customers as per our ‘People First’ philosophy.”


Explaining the details of pre-cast technology, Mr. Bob Van Gils, Director, Van Boxsel Engineering Pvt. Ltd. And Director, WBK Engineering Services Pvt. Ltd. said, “In this technology majority of structural components of buildings (such as slabs, wall etc.) are standardized and produced in plants in a location away from the building site and then transported to the site for assembly. These components are manufactured by industrial methods based on mass production in order to build a large number of quality buildings in a short span of time at low cost. In these buildings, only the foundation is constructed in the traditional way.”


Precast (prefabricated) construction technology is bringing encouraging results in Europe and the Middle East. So far this technology has been used in constructing large projects like bridges, metro rail and commercial buildings. But its various benefits have prompted some major names in the real estate industry to embrace this technology in the housing sector as well. Though precast construction industry is still at its nascent stage in India, it’s rapidly coming to the forefront of the construction industry. It’s estimated that the industry will grow 10 times in next 5 years from the current level of around Rs.2000 crores.
