Bengaluru, Karnataka: After the launch of next gen housing project Vaishnavi Serene in Bengaluru with the city’s leading real estate developer, Vaishnavi Group, Katerra, a Silicon Valley based design and technology-driven global construction company announces yet another project with them. Katerra will be constructing Vaishnavi Tech Square, spread across 521,400 square ft., by implementing integrated offsite manufacturing technology and the concept of DfMA (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly) at Iballur Village, Beguru Hobli in Bengaluru South Taluk. Building components for this project will be factory-made at Katerra’s 42 acre wide, fully-integrated offsite manufacturing facility in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu.
Vaishnavi Tech Senere will feature 10 floors of office space, a beautifully designed ground floor with a lobby, two basement floors and a multi-level car parking area. Capitalizing on Katerra’s unique offsite construction technology, this project is scheduled to be designed and built in the next 12 months, saving lots of time.
Sharing his thoughts on the need for technology-driven construction in India owing to growing urbanization, Mr. Nejeeb Khan, Head Design and Business Strategy - India, Katerra said, “Across the globe, Data Driven Design, Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), Modular Construction, Offsite Manufacturing, Intelligent Buildings and Construction Software are gaining prominence as they enable faster construction and better quality structures. Today, every MNC wishes to have their presence in India, which indicates that there will be a huge requirement for offices and tech parks across the country in the coming years. Thus, technology-driven offsite manufacturing will help in catering to this demand within a shorter timeline. At Katerra, we develop design and technology-driven solutions that will help reduce delivery time up to two-third, thereby speeding up the construction process to deliver smarter and better commercial spaces for our clients. Katerra is proud to partner with Vaishnavi Group yet again for building Vaishnavi Tech Square using the latest off-site manufacturing techniques.”
