- High-rise luxury apartments, India
COMPLETING A PROJECT LIKE THIS REQUIRED KEEPING BOTH OUR HEADS AND THE CONCRETE COOL
CONCRETE MIXED WITH ICE WAS THE BEST WAY TO POUR THIS TALL ORDER
Building luxury apartments in Mumbai - one of the world’s leading financial capitals - requires both experience and expertise.
The project consists of three high rise towers in Worli, Mumbai, with the central tower touching a height of 325m (1,066.27ft) and the adjacent towers reaching a height of approximately 300m. Two of the three towers are currently under construction.
The Challenge :
Undoing some of the initial errors caused by problematic machinery and poor concrete mix design and getting the project back on track.
This trio of towers stand tall with the central tower touching a height of 325m and the adjacent towers reaching a height of approximately 300m.
The Solution :
The malfunctioning equipment was promptly replaced with a Putzmeister concrete pump. The Putzmeister concrete specialist team stepped in to help improve the quality of the concrete and provide the pumping strength desired by the client. This task required several trials, but the target was achieved.
Given the temperatures involved in a high rise project like this, ice flakes or cubes were used to keep the concrete mix cool. This is because if the temperature of the concrete when applied to a structure is too high, its durability and strength are compromised. The Putzmeister machines being used for this project include: BSA 2110D (Now removed) and BSA 14000 (still in operation). Also on site are stationary concrete pumps: BSA 1408 HD and BSA 2110 HP-D.
Putzmeister technology effectively rectified initial errors caused by problematic machinery to get the project back on track.
Concrete Takeaways :
Undoing mistakes was tougher than starting from ground zero, but was managed with characteristic grace, grit and indisputable know-how.
With robust, lowmaintenance machinery and the ingenuity of our concrete specialist teams, we are all set to ensure that these towers stand out amongst luxury, high rise apartments not just in the country, but in the world.
