The Rise Of The Prefabricated Building In India

Prefabricated buildings are constructed and manufactured using factory-made components. They are assembled on-site to complete the structure. Gone are the days when a building was built brick by brick. Technological advancements have made it easy to use modular techniques that save time and money. Prefab buildings have become popular across the globe. India has witnessed the highest demand for such constructions.

Several builders along with construction companies have realised the benefits of prefabricated buildings. The construction of prefab buildings first began in Europe after the second world war. Slowly, it spread its wings to its neighbouring countries and was introduced decades later in India. The real estate market has given immense prominence to prefabricated buildings. Civil engineers along with architects have realised that it is easy to construct building elements at one place and transport it to the actual site for final bolting.

Prefab buildings in India gained momentum only during the 1950s with the emergence of Hindustan Housing Factory. The main aim during those days was to find a solution to a housing crisis that had emerged due to the influx of refugees from Pakistan. Later on, the company changed its name to Hindustan Prefab Limited that intended to produce low-income housing solutions.

Prefabrication is considered to be the future of construction in India. It is a combination of high-performance components, superior designs and quality-controlled manufacturing processes. It not only ensures on-time delivery of buildings but also brings down the cost of construction drastically. It allows engineers to create structures that can be used in the near future. Many construction companies have slowly started to incorporate prefab buildings in their designs.

Prefab buildings manufacturer in Raipur is confident of constructing an 18-floor tower in less than 10 months. Such buildings typically take two years to get completed. Prefab technology is being used for all types of constructions such as low rise buildings, high rise towers, mass townships, shopping complexes and villas. It uses less manpower and saves on total construction costs.

The government of India has laid its focus on improving construction quality. Prefab buildings assure better quality as they are manufactured in a closed environment. Traditional structures are slowly losing its demand because of its short lifespan and unavailability of labour. Climatic changes are also a big hindrance to traditional constructions.

Two best examples of prefab buildings are Burj Khalifa in Dubai and Sydney Opera House. The prefabrication market is expected to grow immensely by 2020. However, India still remains a little behind and slow in incorporating prefab constructions into the real estate market. According to research, India has only 1% of prefabricated buildings out of its $100 Billion real estate market. This is because of a mind-set blockade among developers in India. Construction companies are a little hesitant to invest in such construction.

C and Z Purlin manufacturer in Chhattisgarh is one of the few suppliers and exporters that deliver strong, versatile and durable material for factory construction. Such manufacturers are trying their level best to spread positivity regarding prefab materials in the construction industry. PEB accessories, false ceiling, columns, cable trays and other building accessories are made using high-quality substances.

It is believed that prefabricated buildings will continue to grow in India. Real estate firms along with civil engineers and construction engineers have realised the benefits of prefab structures. The demand for fast, affordable housing can be met only when there is an increase in prefabricated constructions.
