Scope & Opportunities

As India is a developing country with the world’s second largest population, there is huge scope and opportunities in the infrastructure construction sector. The construction industry is the second largest industry in the country, after agriculture, and makes a significant contribution to the national economy, and provides employment to a large number of people. Use of various new technologies and deployment of project management strategies have made it possible for contractors and developers to undertake projects of mega scale like the Delhi and Mumbai Metros, Bandra Worli Sea Link, Gandhi Setu Bridge in Bihar etc. But the industry has to overcome a number of challenges, and the remarkable revolution is yet to come.

In India, about half the population and villages are still not connected to the major cities. Water supply through channels to all parts of India is yet unplanned and we depend majorly on the earlier constructed bridges and dams. There are numerous challenges being faced by construction managers – some new and some, centuries old. These include maintaining safety at site, time constraint, environmental issues, legal issues, government regulations, and socio-political pressure.

Efficiency & Accountability

Monitoring the Health of ROBMonitoring the Health of ROB with Modern Instrumentation
Contractors and builders struggling to execute proga construction projects involve complex and interdependent activities, and the reason why project management consultancies are growing fast. They ensure that project execution sjects efficiently, are seeking experienced personnel with managerial skills, innovative software/technologies, and project specific equipment. This is because the current mehould be done without interruption and delay by monitoring all interdependent site work.

As a leading structural rehabilitation and retrofitting company, we lay a lot of stress on using new software and technologies and the latest equipment. Since rehabilitation and retrofitting is an emerging industry, frequent upgradation is obligatory for us as they bring greater accuracy, efficiency and speed of execution. As we reduce the time required for project completion, the cost of project also reduces.

Artificial Intelligence & IoT

Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine control and IoT have already established their importance in industries around the globe and in almost every sector. But there is still a large gap to be filled. AI has the potential to become a game changer in the infrastructure sector. Since buildings and structures have to face natural calamities and geographical related challenges, their method of construction can be upgraded using AI, machine control and modern equipment to make them more sustainable.

Order Book

Fiscal year 2018-19 has been a milestone for DGC Infrastructure. The company has many major infra as well as residential projects. We are also doing retrofitting of about 10 projects of the government which include roads, rail and road bridges, government offices, etc. Last year, we did the rehabilitation work of a heritage structure and a chimney in Karnataka, and are doing more such rehabilitation and retrofitting across India. Currently, we are strengthening one of the oldest ROBs near Delhi and road bridges near Visakhapatnam. We are also planning expansion of our work in other countries.
