Double Bedroom Houses in 40 days ? Telangana Government counts on New technology to deliver Double Bedroom Houses

In a first, units under the 2BHK housing scheme of Telangana government will be completed in 40 days flat when compared to 150 days it used to take previously. GHMC on August 24 said the tunnel form construction technology — under which a 10-stored building can be raised in 40 days — is being adopted now to build 2BHK houses at Rampally  village in Keesara Mandal.

According to experts and builders, if an S+10 tower has to be raised in the traditional construction method, it would take not less than five months. OSD (housing), GHMC, K Suresh Kumar said tunnel form technique is a system that facilitates the casting of walls and slabs in one operation. “One floor can be completed in 30-40 hours under this technique. A tower of 10 floors can be finished within 40 days,” explained Suresh Kumar.

In a statement, GHMC said the structures would be robust and earthquake-resistant. “This type of technology is being adopted for the first time in a government scheme,” it added.

When contacted, GHMC officials said this technology was being used only after seeking approval of IIT-Hyderabad professors, experts and a special committee consisting of engineers from the Telangana State Housing Corporation Ltd and GHMC.

After casting three walls and the slab in one go, the fourth wall is built in the traditional manner. In Rampally,  the fourth wall was built using brick, cement and beams. While building the towers, a pre-cast staircase was used.
