Partnership with Katerra for next-gen construction technology makes this possible
Bengaluru, February 24, 2021: Vaishnavi Group has successfully completed their 896 unit apartment project, Vaishnavi Serene in Yelahanka, way ahead of the scheduled time, 20 months ahead to be precise. This astounding achievement comes in the wake of habitual delays that the construction industry has been dogged with for the last decade.
In 2019, Vaishnavi Group had joined hands with Katerra, a technology-driven offsite precast construction company, to introduce the next generation construction technology in their project Vaishnavi Serene. Katerra, which adopts the integrated offsite manufacturing technology and the concept of DFMA (Designor For Manufacturing and Assembly), ensured 50 per cent faster completion time, besides reducing pollution on site by over 40 per cent.
Commenting on this incredible achievement, Mr. C.N Govindaraju, Chairman & Managing Director, Vaishnavi Group, says, “This achievement stands as a testimony to what new age technology can do to construction. Our collaboration with Katerra was in keeping with our aim of ‘Building from the Heart’ where we have created homes that offer the best functional use of the living spaces.
Our meticulously planned spaces offer the homeowner in Vaishnavi Serene the experience and efficiency of a 1400 Sq ft residence for a given space of 1118 Sq ft 3-bedroom unit. Besides, the project has not only been completed way ahead of schedule but the build quality and finish of the spaces come with an unmatched standard, thanks to the technology opted coupled with our ethos. Additionally, the technology is in line with our green thinking as the impact on the environment in the form of construction debris, water consumption, wastage and noise is substantially reduced.”
He further points out that, Yelahanka being an upcoming growth hub, the infrastructure development the locality is currently witnessing will make the project a winning proposition for the home buyer.
Smart and efficient technology:
Speaking on the efficiency of the offsite casting and the new age technology offered by Katerra, Nejeeb Khan, the Head – Design & Brand Strategy, Asia & Middle East, Katerra says, “Our factory manufactured and assembled solutions come with the highest quality in design, production and finish, eliminating many of the oft faced problems associated with conventional on-site construction. Designed and manufactured to precision, we deliver quality homes that increase speed of implementation while simultaneously reducing waste through the optimal use of resources and minimal environmental intervention. Vaishnavi Serene stands testimony to our quality and unmatched standards, a product of new age technology in action.”
The project also comes with 100 percent offsite manufactured bathroom pods that merely have to be plugged into the designated area on a floor plate. Because of the offsite manufacturing of the precast elements, there has also been a substantial saving on material used, besides the conservation of water given the steam curing adopted in the factory. The factory finished precast concrete slabs come with all the built in mechanical, electrical and plumbing conduits.
Situated adjacent to the lush green CRPF campus in Yelahanka, Vaishnavi Serene offers units in configurations of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms, in sizes that range from 635 Sq ft to 1118 Sq ft. The smartly sized homes, besides their highly enhanced space efficiency, are also Vaastu compliant.
“When we booked our unit in November 2019, we did not expect to have the project completed on time, leave alone ahead of schedule, especially in the backdrop of Covid-19. But what transpired was not only completion 20 months ahead of schedule but also deliverance of immaculate quality and finish. This has happened only because of the adoption of the integrated offsite manufacturing technology, which has certainly provided a quality and standard that is way ahead of the conventional construction methods.”, say Devendra Bhimrao Sawant and Poonam Devendra Sawant, proud home owners at Vaishnavi Serene.
Chekkera Subbaiah Devaiah and Poonam Devaiah, also happy home owners at Vaishnavi Serene, have this to say about the project- “We are really pleased to see Vaishnavi Group stand by its commitment even during such difficult times as the ongoing pandemic, and complete the project not just on schedule but way ahead of the stipulated completion time.”
