Presentation 1

Topic: Need for new gen technology enablers for integrated project controls

by Mr. Kalyan Vaidyanathan


Nadhi Information Technologies Pvt. Ltd.


Synopsis :

Today's real estate and infrastructure projects are a complex web of stakeholder interactions across multiple organizations making project monitoring difficult. The evolving regulatory environment only serves to exacerbate the situation. Conventional construction technology is disconnected and fragmented making project monitoring and controls reactive, ad-hoc, and post-mortem.

To effectively plan and execute projects in today's environment, what is needed are highly collaborative and mobile enabled decision support technologies with supporting business processes. This will involve rethinking how technology has to be developed and deployed. With case studies and first-hand experience, speaker will speak about how technology can be effectively used to move project monitoring to project controls and the enablers required for it.

Presentation 2

Topic: An introduction to sustainable architecture

by Mr. Anand V.M

Principal Architect
Anand and Associates


With the present frantic pace of construction and the associated impact to the environment, there is a need for us in the construction industry to pause and examine what we can do to more towards sustainability.

All forms of construction have some impact on the environment both globally and locally. Firstly there is a need to have a clearer understanding of these impacts, followed by an understanding of the technology, systems and tools that are currently available to build green.

There are numerous buildings where it has been demonstrated that it is possible to have considerable reduction in energy, resource and water without spending any additional capital. This change can be brought about by investing time at the design stage of the project.

With simple steps and checks at the design stage we can all contribute in bringing about a revolution in green buildings. Today buildings have achieved net zero energy and water and have set the benchmark for green. This is the inspiration for the next steps we can take.
