India, as of today is emerging super power of the world, however the primitive construction techniques are slowing this boom in economy. It is coupled by delayed projects, poor quality and workmanship especially in government sector and mass housing projects.
There is need for revolutionary Smart Building concepts in construction industry and incorporate Rapid Construction techniques.
One such step has been taken by Dr. Harpal Singh CMD of Synergy Group. He has been instrumental in creating a 10 storey Instacon Building in less than 48 hours in Mohali, India and created a Limca book of national record . The building design is made of modular steel frames and Pre- fabricated modules constructed in record time.
Synergy group under the leadership of Dr Harpal Singh has made us all proud…….
10 Storey Building completed in 48 hours
The design and planning of this master piece is the brainchild of Dr Harpal Singh and his motivated team under the brand name Instacon.
Recently met the stalwart at a seminar conducted at Chandigarh, where he shared the insights in creating the marvel and other fast construction ideas.
The superstructure of the building has been constructed in 48 hrs flat and was witnessed by one and all (excluding the time for foundation and the planning process). The building is a framework of modular steel structures fitted by prefab wall and floor panels. The structure is certified earthquake proof (seismic 4 zone) building and also an efficient energy conserving building.
The prefab modules also house the wiring & plumbing services of the building giving neat and clean interiors.
The main components used in Instacon System are
- Steel Structure consisting of Modules & Pillars
- EPS panels
EPS panels, used in Insta homes in Mohali, are composed of two electro- welded galvanised 3D Steel meshes, joined by connectors, in the middle of which is suitably shaped Expandable Polystyrene.
- Non- toxic
- Self – extinguishing
- Ultra fast Construction
- Light Structure
- Minimised Environmental wastes & pollution
- Cost saving
- Earthquake resistant
- Salvage value
- Energy conservation
