Innovations in structural design & construction
Powered by 'Ambuja Foundations - A Knowledge Initiative', the seminar held on April 22 served as a platform for professionals - architects, builders, contractors, civil & structural engineers and SMEP experts - to reflect and deliberate current challenges, new ideas and solutions that would meaningfully change the face of construction in India. The conclave also celebrated the industry experts' contribution in building advanced structures that not only met surging customers' expectations, but also sought to address the environmental impact.
Driven by advances in construction technology, environmental concerns and ever-changing customer expectations, the industry has been subject to many changes in the recent past. This necessitated visionaries and leaders to congregate under one roof and share their journey, various challenges they faced and innovative ways to find solutions. Their reflections and thoughts have added great value to the industry.
