Constru India therefore focuses on six major segments. Viz. Urban Infrastructure & Transportation, Green & Intelligent Buildings, Build with Steel, Construction Engineering & Design, Construction & Building Materials, Electricals in Building & Construction.
With a successful 11-year track record, the emphasis in Constru India 2010 is proposed for â€˜Tech-innovationâ€™ â€“ by way of more environment friendly & energy efficient materials of construction.
Sectors which will be covered.
Urban Infrastructure & Transport
Urban transport is a key element of urban infrastructure. The urban development ministry is examining the proposals of seven metro rail projects in different parts of the country, with a total investment of Rs 43,360 crore. Two pioneering efforts in public transport in India have come about in Kolkata and Delhi. Delhi Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS), a joint venture between Government of India and Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi, is being implemented by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).Road and highways minister Kamal Nath said, â€œIndia will soon get a loan of $ 3billion loan from the World Bank for building roads in the countryâ€. This section will analyse the scenario, estimating basic investment needs in Urban Transport & discussing methods of resource mobilization.
Green & Intelligent Buildings
Green building brings together a vast array of practices and techniques to reduce and ultimately eliminate the impacts of buildings on the environment and human health. There are several key steps in designing sustainable buildings which reduce loads, optimize systems, and generate on-site renewable energy. Green Building Concepts supplies information exchange on a more resource and energy efficient lifestyle. Municipal Corporations are all examining Green Building Architecture for all new building, yet there remains a thirst for knowledge, experience and new products at affordable prices to make this a reality. This section is designed to showcase the progress made, deliberate the potential opportunities and challenges facing the industry and to create a roadmap for sustainable growth and development.
Build With Steel
According to the Investment Commission of India investments of around US $ 30 billion in steel are in pipeline over the next five years. It has been forecast that the apparent Steel use point in India will increase by 11.8 percent in 2010. The per capita consumption of steel in our country is 46 kg, which is much below the global average of 150 kg. The aim is to increase the target to 90 kg by 2014. Simultaneously, steel consumption in the country in the last five years has risen by a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.54 percent.
Construction Engineering & Design
Construction Engineering & Design is needed, to ensure a safe and a stable construction environment, especially as it relates to rehabilitation projects. Engineering experts are dedicated to designing and building safe, livable, and healthy projects for residential and commercial structures, retaining walls, drainage and soil stability, road & highways, railways, ports & dams, airports etc.
Construction & Building Materials
India faces an increasingly urgent challenge for building a reliable and efficient infrastructure speedily. For Eg, Steel Concrete Composite : It combines the comprehensive strength of concrete with tensile strength of steel helping to reduce weight and evolve an effective economic structural system.,.
Geosynthetic products like the Geogrids,Geotextiles,Geonets,Geomembranes offer new, viable geotechnical engineering materials which helps in significant economic and social benefits.
Better quality of construction and building materials can play a significant role in achieving not only speed but also major improvements in quality and economy in infrastructure construction. This Section dedicated to the innovative use of materials in construction and repair.
Electricals In Building & Construction
Electricals are an essential element to any successful building project from conception to day-to-day operations.. India Offers a huge market , as per estimates of Building Materials and Technology Promotion Council, an investment of the order of Euro 1000 billion would be required in housing/building sector until 2010. Energy efficient products and eco-friendly solutions are now the key growth drivers for the Rs 5000 crore lighting industry .Developments in newer technologies like LEDâ€™s which have a lifetime of upto 50,000 hours or approx 25 years,will open new ways of deploying lighting solutions. The market potential offered by energy efficient lighting products is huge. Therefore, the demand for Electricals in Building & Construction is on a rise
