Industrial Building Methods

India is on its drive for a massive infrastructure upgrade and the construction techniques in the country have seen a major elevation over the past few years with the adoption of global practices. Germany has several well-proven building techniques available which may be of good use in India as well. Especially, the techniques of pre-fabrication and reduction of on-site activities is well worth consideration and careful adoption.

Pre-fabrication is the practice of assembling components of a structure in a factory or other manufacturing site, and transporting complete assemblies or sub-assemblies to the construction site where the structure is to be located. This construction technique offers the most innovative and quicker methods of construction ensuring efficient, cost effective and speedy completion of projects which is perhaps the pre-requisite for the Indian construction sector (where infrastrucutre development is on full swing) to meet tight construction schedules and demanding deadlines.
