Large-scale construction companies and real estate developers in the National Capital Region are taking measures like using prefabricated building materials, erecting high windbreak walls, creating dust-absorbing barriers, and sound and the installation of anti-smog guns to reduce pollution and ensure that work is not delayed even when construction is prohibited.

In some cases, the construction of walls, floors and other structures takes place at a remote site and is assembled at various sites in Delhi.

Tata Projects, which is executing the new parliament building project, uses prefabricated blocks built miles away – the masonry is being completed about 600 km away while the bamboo flooring arrives from the northeast of the country. India.

“On the spot, it’s more like joining Lego blocks. Therefore, there is currently no polluting activity on the site, ”said an official.

The NCR Air Quality Management Commission lifted the ban on construction activities on Monday, after shutting it down for a week. However, companies were urged to follow environmentally friendly measures to reduce pollution at project sites.

Builders use various means to reduce pollution.

“To minimize air pollution levels, we spray water at regular intervals around construction sites and adjacent areas to reduce dust. We also get most of our construction supplies like UG pipes, pavers and other ready-to-install materials from various suppliers who do the final touch-ups in their closed warehouses to minimize the release of harmful pollutants into the atmosphere ” , Santosh said. Agarwal, CFO and Executive Director, Alpha Corp.

Experts claim that using pre-fabricated materials can also help cut costs by up to 30%.

“Cutting edge

enable further optimization of the prefabrication process, which means faster completion of all construction projects at significantly lower costs, ”said Paul Wallett, regional manager of construction technology company Trimble in the Middle East and India.

The NCRTC, which runs the RRTS Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor, has also adopted similar measures.

“NCRTC makes extensive use of prefabricated technology in RRTS construction, in which segments of huge structures (stations / viaduct / tunnels) are cast in RRTS casting sites in a controlled environment. This strategic decision to limit construction activities at the sites also leads to systematic handling and processing of raw materials, such as cement and sand, without any pollution, ”said NCRTC chief PRO Punnet Vats.

Track slabs are built in a factory where structural casting is done in a controlled environment to mitigate pollution.

The companies say construction is being carried out in barricaded areas of adequate height and that thorough cleanliness is maintained at these sites.

“We have developed and implemented a construction and demolition waste management plan at all of our project sites to ensure source reduction, recycling and reuse of waste. Low embodied energy building materials are used to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings, and a dust suppression system – with sprinklers, a smog gun and a blanket of loose soil, sand or construction waste and demolition on site – is being set up at our project sites, ”said Rishi Raj, COO, Max Estates, who runs several commercial projects in the NCR.
