Founder
Pop-Up Housing
 
Synopsis:
With Prefab construction and steel structures taking prominence in the new age construction sector. Innovations in the warehousing industry have led to massive adoptions in Prefab technologies such as Rack Supported Buildings. Taking inspiration from the warehousing and prefab technologies how could we explore modular portable solutions using recycled industrial materials for new age Emerging needs for housing solutions. The case study would talk about several bottom up innovative projects for the marginalized sections which could trickle up for ancillary space needs in urbanizing cities. The concept involves using modular framing systems like a giant erector set, life size meccano or lego housing. This inspires out of the box thinking to reduce labour, time and material costs and uses frugal innovation which could potentially address rapid urbanization and transit space needs using a light, quick and cheap (LQC) approach.
 
What will the audience gain :
Out of the box thinking, frugal innovation. Transit housing as a need and opportunity. Applications for Base of the Pyramid (BOP). Case studies on different innovative projects. Reducing waste, using recycled materials. Cradle to Cradle Design approach.

Presentation 1

Topic:Integrated Project Delivery by Dr. Jayasimha Krishnachar

Senior Vice President - Projects
Provident Housing Limited.

Synopsis :

Integrated project delivery (IPD) - Involves collaboration of all stake holders in a project such as Owners, Managers, Designers, Procurers, Contractors and Maintainers.

The aim of this alliance is to have formal non-confrontational relationships in the project group so that on the whole the system works on the principle of ‘Pain share and Gain share’. The process also helps to Increase value and reduce waste.

This system was conceived in the U S market where they realized that the project process was becoming very confrontational and litigations were becoming common. Increased wastage was also a worry.

Use of leading Technology such as BIM and other tools are actively advocated as these will help in reducing the rework and hence cut the wastage and save time.

Relevance to Indian Context:  Indian construction scene is also becoming complex with many players in a project and hence the atmosphere is becoming confrontational.

Measures to mitigate this situation shall also be discussed.

Closure:  If the audience feels that this needs to be taken forward, a small working group can be set up to study and adopt IPD for Indian context
