BCC Infrastructures Pvt. Ltd

Students from School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), Delhi, an institution of urban planning, visited the precast factory at Bharat City site in Indraprastha Yojana, Ghaziabad.

According to a press release, Bharat City is being developed by BCC Infrastructures using precast technology from Phase II onwards.

During the visit, the students and the professors interacted with Kumar Bharat, Director of Bharat City and Ujawal Shetty, Chief-General Manager, who oversees the precast construction division.

After an introductory session by Shetty on the advantages of precast construction and key USPs of technology being employed by Bharat City, the delegation visited the construction site and the factory for a live demonstration of the technology at work.

Prof Dr PSN Rao, Head, Department of Housing at SPA , said “Precast technology is the need of the hour for India to address the housing needs of its vast population and  to upgrade the Urban Infrastructure in the country. By using precast we can save time, money and environment. Bharat’s endeavour to take a pioneering step towards employing this technology in a mass housing project in such big way will encourage the industry at large in adopting this technology in near future.”


Kumar Bharat said, “Using pre-fab construction, we have built one flat in day in Bharat City and the entire tower has been constructed in a fraction of time of what it takes using traditional cast in situ construction method.” Using precast construction, he said, “We can go a long way in realising the ‘Housing for All by 2022’ plan of the Government.”
