SPAGHETTI at KHARGHAR
Location: Navi – Mumbai.
Client: CIDCO and L&T ECC
Scope: 4 No. Blocks on each floor of 4, 5, 6, and 7 Storey Apts.
Design: Load Bearing wall & slab.
Cycle: 4 days per floor.
System formwork: 6000 sq.mt.
Contract Start Date: November 2003.
Project Type (s): High rise, residential building having 16 buildings in all.Architect: Hafeez
The building in plan made an angle of 1720, 168º and 1610 with each other. The quality of construction is maintained at the site with the use of RMC. The RMC plant has a capacity of producing 90 cubic meter of concrete of concrete per hour. The concrete used was of 25 grades. The construction from foundation up to stilt is done with conventional practice while the upper floors are constructed using ‘MIVAN’ technology. The construction company has imported three sets of aluminium forms. The cost is about Rs.500/- sq.ft as against Rs.650/- sq.ft using conventional methods. Thus it can be said that even though the cost of construction is little bit high it has an unmatched quality compared to the conventional method.
MIVAN formwork played a vital role in the construction of the project. The project was completed not only on stipulated period of time but also paid off with its attributes. Speedy & quality dwelling units were provided to the people of low income groups at very reasonable costs. MIVAN is a definitely future of this ever growing construction industry with lots of project still awaiting its touch of excellence.
