How Construction Technology Is Changing India’s Real Estate
Technological advancements have caused tectonic shifts in the way we do business. Real estate, too, was subjected to many a change due to them, especially the transaction process. The construction process by no means has been any less influenced. While real estate transactions became a more streamlined and organised process on the back of technology, it is also easier to accurately predict delivery estimations since technology has changed the way homes were built earlier.
Now, there are two avenues in the construction business that where the advancement in technology has concentrated:
*The timescales applicable for a business to deliver a finished product
*And, the quality of the product delivered.
The effect these advancements had on construction technology has brought massive changes in management of construction plans, execution of the building construction and the quality of the finished product and its adherence to safety norms and policies.
The planning and project management phases of a construction project have been overhauled as follows:
*Integrated scheduling ensures that the design, the procurement of the blueprints and the contract are all crucial parts of the master schedule.
*Generating of 3D and 7D models of the project ensures better monitoring and sustainability of the project.
* Cutting-edge software such as Oracle Primavera and Build Smart assist in the planning of the project.
The construction process of any building project can be executed in a more methodical fashion with the help of technology.
*Technology helps you keep up with changing regulatory norms. For instance, noise pollution, debris scattering, drilling and demolition norms have changes. EPI Plasma Rock Fragmentation is the new way to go.
*We have to build fast to meet the government’s ambitious housing-for-all-by- 2022 target. Modular houses that are factory-churned could help in reducing delivery timescales.
*Tools to hold the project together have been upgraded as well. Dry wall panels comprising magnesium oxide, plastic and hybrid material formwork, rice husk and ash form partial cement substitutes.
*Lightweight concrete is being substituted with CLC blockwork; blocks are joined with adhesives as opposed to plain mortar; plasters that are mix-ready and adhesives that can fix and hold tiles in place and help sustain them longer, are being employed.
*Factory-produced, ready-made doors are available as well that cover-up the cracks left between the door and the frame, and accentuate the aesthetic appeal.
Make no mistake. The technological advancement does not give a wide berth to quality loopholes. Make sure the quality of a finished construction project prior to investing money on it.
