Construction Week Conference: ICCTI 2013
The construction industry in India contributes around 8 per cent to the country’s GDP. Construction and infrastructure sectors are poised for good growth in the coming years. However, perennial labour challenges, regulatory hurdles and land acquisition issues along with lack of technological innovations among others are some of the major challenges faced by the industry.
Construction Week is hosting a two-day conference — Innovations in Concrete Construction Technology India (ICCTI) 2013 from 21ST – 23RD August 2013 at Westin Mumbai Garden City, Mumbai aimed at addressing two major aspects in the Concrete Construction sector: Precast and Formwork.
With developers now keen on adopting precast concrete and other engineering technologies in their projects after witnessing more than 60 per cent savings in man hours and up to 50 per centre reduction in costs that these technologies have delivered in Europe and the Middle East, precast sector in India is poised for an explosive growth.
ICCTI aims to bring together India’s leading property developers, contractors, structural engineers, architects, project management consultants, solution providers and other key stakeholders involved in precast and system formwork to discuss and deliberate all the major roadblocks towards implementing precast technology in India to achieve cost-effectiveness and speedy completion of projects.
Some of the confirmed speakers include:
