Everest constructs 4.5 Lac sq.ft. auto expo venue
Everest Steel Building Solutions, the Pre-Engineered Building division of Everest Industries Ltd, took just 180 days to build a 4.5 Lac sq. ft. world class exhibition centre from scratch to make India Exposition Mart, Greater Noida ready to host Auto Expo 2016 on time.
The Rs 35 Crore project included construction of six large halls, which required 50 m clear spans given its function as a trade fair venue.
Manish Sanghi, Managing Director, Everest Industries said, “The challenge of time was met with intelligent use of innovative technology and manpower so much so that 50% savings in time were achieved. This apart, the Everest team also addressed the concerns of escalating cooling costs for the vast spaces with fully insulated buildings. The utilisation of PUF panels on the roof and walls reduced the heat load by 20% and helped IEML control air-conditioning expenses, and thereby making the buildings environment friendly.“
“The Pre-Engineered Steel Building concept is recognised to be the most versatile, fast and economical method of constructing buildings. The economy and the speed of delivery and erection of these buildings are unmatched in the construction industry. From a simple box industrial building, which was imported into India way back in 1997, to the present day mega projects that define innovation with precision and speed, PEB industry in India has indeed come a long way. We believe this achievement by us of delivering a 4.5 lac sq ft structure in just 180 days would help in further increasing acceptability of Everest Pre Enginnered Buildings as a replacement to conventional forms of construction to build infrastructure in India going forward.” – added Sanghi.
