We will continue to innovate and improve precast construction technology to meet the needs in the Indian construction market, and will invest in design and development to come up with new solutions that enhance efficiency, sustainability, and expand the scope of this technology in various projects.

Vollert India offers the latest technologies in precast concrete including advanced formwork systems like 3D pod moulds, size adjustable column beam moulds, tilting tables, flexible staircase moulds, etc. The company has automated production processes, and innovative connection systems for precast elements, like circulation plants, central shifter plants, TCT production line, etc. These technologies enhance efficiency, quality, and sustainability in precast construction projects.

Precast technology gaining momentum

Precast technology offers faster construction timelines compared to traditional construction methods. This is crucial in a rapidly developing country like India, where there is a high demand for infrastructure projects and housing. It also allows for better quality control as the components are manufactured in a controlled environment. This ensures that the structures are built to the highest standards, reducing the risk of defects, and enhancing durability.

The use of standardized precast elements reduces the need for on-site labor and minimizes construction waste. This helps in optimizing construction costs and improving efficiency. Another factor driving the adoption of precast technology in India is the increasing focus on sustainable and green construction practices. Precast technology allows for the use of recycled materials and reduces the carbon footprint of construction projects.

The government Make in India campaign and the push for affordable housing have further led to the growth of precast technology in the country. The government has also introduced policies and incentives to encourage the use of Precast technology in infrastructure projects.

Advantages and challenges

Time saving with speed, better quality due to controlled production, cost savings, and sustainability has made precast technology an attractive choice for construction projects in India. The demand for precast technology is primarily driven by segments such as residential buildings, commercial complexes, industrial projects, and infrastructure development. Precast technology also allows for better and fast customization at construction sites.

However, there are challenges, especially in the handling and transportation of the precast elements, hence, the need for specialized equipment for bigger sizes. Careful planning, and coordination is required to ensure safe and timely delivery of the elements to construction sites, which is invariably through undeveloped roads and major traffic blocks at the tolls.

Constructing bridges and flyovers

Precast technology is poised to play a significant role in the construction of bridges and flyovers in the future due to its ability to deliver faster construction, improved quality, design flexibility, durability, and reduced maintenance. Bridges and flyovers can be built to the highest standards and meet the required specifications. The precast elements can be fabricated concurrently with the site preparation, reducing overall construction time. This is especially beneficial in urban areas where minimizing disruption to traffic is crucial.

Moreover, precast technology enhances the durability and longevity of bridges and flyovers. Use of high-quality materials and advanced techniques, result in structures that can withstand harsh environmental conditions and heavy loads. The maintenance requirements of bridges and flyovers is also reduced with the use of precast elements with integrated corrosion protection systems.

Outlook on India’s precast market

The outlook for the precast market in the coming years is positive. The demand for precast technology is expected to grow due to the increasing focus on sustainable and efficient construction practices. The need for faster construction timelines, cost savings, and improved quality control will further drive the adoption of precast technology in the construction industry. What’s more, bigger projects with tight timelines are generating more demand for Precast Technology and meeting ESG requirements.
