Our commitment to a Sustainable Construction Industry

We believe that sustainable and affordable infrastructure development is key to building inclusive societies, and we are committed to addressing construction sector’s challenges around high worker injuries, high material wastage and enabling the Industry's business sustainability.

01

Reducing Carbon Emissions

CO2 emission reduction in building construction

 

UN SDG CHALLENGE

Building and construction are responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions in the world

SOLUTION APPROACH

We support construction with greener alternatives such as AAC, FlyAsh Blocks Vs traditional concrete, and use of Epoxy vs Mortar.

Resulting building structures offer 4x savings in CO2 emissions that is almost 22.4 MT of CO2 per 1000SqFt of Apartment building, and upto 10x improved thermal efficiency, in addition to significant cost savings in construction materials.

 

UN SDG CHALLENGE

Enormous gender gap, unconscious gender bias, only 11% of Construction workers are women, and a mere 1.4% in actual production

SOLUTION APPROACH

Our robotic machines de-couple heavy lifting & repetitive hard labour masonry activities (block lifting, placing) from skill based activities, effectively breaking gender barrier to employing women masons. In addition by offering machine operator role, masons could command better pay grades and growth.

Avoiding Onsite Injuries

X-Ray Results

 

UN SDG CHALLENGE

Construction sector today has amongst the lowest worker productivity (GVA/Hr worked) at one end, and highest rate of workplace injuries at the other. Masons in particular are amongst the most impacted with back pain, wrist & elbows, musculoskeletal disorders etc.

SOLUTION APPROACH

Our robotic machines can handle heavy blockwork with dexterity, manage hi-rise construction and help avoid human over exposure to bad weather. Led by multi-layer operational safety checks, backed by sensor arrays and operated by skilled staff, our machines protect masons from debilitating heavy lifting of material and dangerous practices like scaffolding, resulting in drastic injury avoidance.

 

UN SDG CHALLENGE

Construction & Demolition waste contributes to 3B Tonnes of waste annually in 2012... 30% of total weight of building material delivered to site is wasted, and 33% of this waste comes from bricks, blocks and mortar.

SOLUTION APPROACH

We promote use of greener construction materials like Flyash, AAC blocks which enable 30% less environmental waste traditional concrete. By sensor backed handling of building materials we further maximize material utilization by 10-15%.
