RICHA INDUSTRIES achieves another milestone Lucknow Metro Station Project on Completion


Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC): Project of Lucknow Metro Stations in Capital of Uttar Pradesh, India is another milestone achieved by Richa Industries Ltd. The PEB covers a floor area of over 30,000 Sqm with a tonnage of over 1500 MT including all eight metro stations.


The Scope of project includes Design, Manufacturing, Supply and Commissioning of First phase of LMRC Stations, which includes eight stations from Transport Nagar to Charbaugh. The vital aspect of project was, Completion within stipulated time period of 6 months.


Each station has the clear height of approx 6.5 meter and rafters are arched with approx 40 degree curvature, Sheeting is Bend, Single skin, Bare Galvalume Hi- Rib profile with 930- 1020 mm cover width, 28-32 mm crest’s @ 186-333 mm C/C manufactured and installed perfectly. For Natural lighting 2 mm thick “Diamond shaped” Poplycarbonate sheet matched with the metal sheet profile and fixed accurately on 6 per cent of the Roof area.


Richa Industries has done through planning for this project from designing to fabrication to erection. First the 3D model of complete station was prepared by efficient designers of Richa on STAAAD along with TEKLA model, this helps to achieve faster designing and 3D visualisation which eliminates error while preparing fabrication drawings and easily integrated with BIM (Building Information Modeling).


The single model covers all structural analysis and designing requirements. For Fabrication CNC files (fully scaled) are generated automatically with the help of Tekla. It is veru help full for fast production of all stations as the project was strictly time bound, The complete planning of project was done on Steel2Build. This is in house software of Richa. It is an ERP integrated software easy to handle complete planning Order booking to After sale services.


Richa had to face many challenges due to crucial time frame which LMRC has asked. Special arrangements were made by Richa from Erection point of view, Special safety measures and tools considered to manage execution at elevated height of approx 16 meter and keeping in view of running traffic. Boom lift arranged at site for erection and fixing louvers.Initially 2 station project was given to some other PEB Vendor but due to incapable approach of exiting vendor, Later it was handed over to Richa due to their proficient track records in execution of non standard complex projects.


Another accomplishment which was achieved is that after getting 2 station work order rest 6 stations also awarded to Richa due to their superlative performance.


The PEB is designed according to the IS 800:2002 code with the consideration of all internal and external factors such as Wind loads, Seismic loads, Design complexity etc. LMRC became a Landmark project of Richa and took the company to much higher heights.
