Spotlight- Elematic India

Aurobindo Realty & Infrastructure Private Limited
chooses Elematic to fast-track projects in Hyderabad



The Indian company Aurobindo Realty & Infrastructure Private Limited adopted precast technology to speed-up construction processes so it can take advantage of growth boom in Hyderabad.




The company recognized growth opportunities in the sector since Hyderabad, the city of some seven million people, is one of the fastest growing cities in India. Many IT companies have their headquarters there, there is a decent investment schemes going on and where infrastructure projects are available.


But the company was faced with multiple dilemmas - how to create modern, sleek-looking buildings with minimum time, less labour involvement and how to create a safer environment for construction workers?


“With conventional systems, we could have faced with many challenges, such as skilled manpower availability, rate of attrition, site logistics and safety issues,” said Ravindra Kumar VJ, Chief Executive, Aurobindo Realty.


Aurobindo was not alone, since most construction companies in India are faced with similar problems, he noted.


“These challenges, coupled with project requirements are leading to cost and time overrun in projects along with huge costs in rectifying any defects,” Kumar said.


The company executives began to study alternative options to traditional methods and soon discovered the advantages of precast technology. They learnt that using precast gives faster project execution, in fact twice the speed of traditional construction and over 50 percent reduction in labour requirements.


“Soon we realized that using precast enables high quality and uniform products produced in a controlled environment. The other main gain is in construction time due to advantages of speed and consistency,” Kumar noted.


In addition, adopting precast technology for Aurobindo meant reduction in manpower, timely project completion and less wastage of materials - all helping the company to gain competitive edge.


The company chose Elematic precast technology from Finland that offered state of the art plant, machinery and complete services.


“We chose Elematic because they had proven technology and machineries that are being used across the globe. In addition, they offered various types of systems in precast technology,” Kumar said.


Soon the company finalized a land required for the precast plant located in Sanga Reddy district of Hyderabad, where over a 21-acre plot Aurobindo Precast factory was set up. But the work was far from over.


“We are providing the full gamut of services from setting up the plant, training their team for efficient operation as well as having an annual maintenance contract to ensure full production,” said Chander Dutta, MD, Elematic India.


As a result of precast adoption, Aurobindo is now well on the way to reach its goals, completing their first project called Galaxy, a 24-story commercial tower at the busy industrial hub of HITEC city. In addition, they are launching two more projects that both use precast: Orbit, which is 24-story tower at HITEC city and Lulu Mall for the Emirati -based mall operator. 



Aurobindo Precast plant is already on an expansion mode.



“They have started with their expansion activity where they have now installed a third beam line to augment their production capacity as well as to meet the enhanced demand from their sites,” Dutta explained.

Adopting precast bodes well not just for Aurobindo but the Indian construction industry as a whole.


“With successful examples of precast plants such as Aurobindo, we can expect accelerated adoption of precast technology in India and a better quality of buildings in years to come,” he concluded.
