With more than 1,600 ha. of real property and development potential for the next 12 years, PT Modernland Tbk. is one of the leading Indonesian property developers in Greater Jakarta. For the last three decades, the company has concentrated on industrial property and commercial property development portfolios, with its primary focus on residential construction, including integral housing developments. To deliver the numerous property projects on time and with a high standard of quality, in 2017, the company invested in a modern carousel system.
The new PT Modernland precast factory in Cikande, Banten
The new production centre, where both precast concrete elements and ready-mixed concrete are manufactured and processed, is located in the Cikande, Banten industrial zone, which also belongs to the Modernland Group, and has been integrally developed by it.
"It is important to have the correct approach to new business areas from the very start and benefit from the experience of other leading manufacturers of precast concrete elements and to initiate an exchange of experience. We are convinced that in the coming years, a country like Indonesia with more than 250 million inhabitants, will develop yet more extensive needs for high quality and primordially safe residential accommodation,"
Hendy Wijaya, Managing Director.
Modernland can now produce precast concrete elements for their entire industrial construction, commercial buildings, and residential construction property portfolio. Modernland has set new construction standards with precast construction.
In the new precast concrete plant, the first phase of which is designed for a total capacity of approx. 200,000 m² per annum, the company will manufacture a broad spectrum of precast concrete elements, both for their in-house projects and for the open market. The range includes ceilings and walls, façade elements for high-rise buildings, detached houses, commercial buildings, hotels, office buildings, partition walls and other products.
Modernland invested in a modern carousel system from the German cutting-edge technology producer EBAWE, a company belonging to the leading precast machinery and solutions provider Progress Group.
EBAWE’s cutting-edge technology from Germany ensures high quality of the end-products. The most up-to-date mixing technology makes it possible to produce sophisticated types of concrete, which are needed to manufacture the precast concrete elements.
Ingenious compaction technology removes air from the concrete and compacts it to an optimum degree, so that product surfaces of excellent quality can be created in the subsequent multi-stage smoothing process, before the prefabricated concrete units are positioned over a stacking device to cure.
The plant manufactures high-quality precast concrete elements, such as floor slabs, walls and facade elements.
Compared with traditional building methods, Modernland believes in the many benefits of pre-cast construction, such as reduction of construction time by up to 50%, in particular, for buildings with several storeys; consistent product quality which can be achieved due to the production of precast concrete elements in a controlled work environment; and contribution to the environment such as recycling of waste concrete.
