About the Project: Our ability to deal with complex engineering problems has been tested to the hilt in almost all fronts during our working with this very demanding project.

The project requirements brief provided by the client placed the availability of land as 2.50 Acres which is 30% of that required for a comparable project. The project was to accommodate an aluminium foundry, pressure die-casting shop, fettling shop, machine shop, tool room and also shall function as the head quarters of the company in India. The factory and office shall be of world class construction. The project requirements also specified zero discharge of water, recycling of treated water, acoustic treatment, removal of odour, dust and smoke, well ventilated process area among other things, considering the proximity of residential areas to the plant.

It was very important that the designers understand the process thoroughly and build the project around the process. Value engineering was required at every step to optimise the space and process.

The project was designed through a research-based discovery process. This unique method established a direct relationship between the functional requirements and the creative process. This process also meant active participation of the client in our design process, making choices as the project developed.

The result of the efforts was that the project met all laid down pre-project requirements, preserving the allocated budget.

The foundry was installed with capacity for future expansion. The pressure die-casting shop can accommodate as many as 15 machines against the original requirements of 10 machines.

Map ViewThe CNC machines were installed in multiple levels in the building with each floor plate holding as many as 46 machines. Space was created for installation of machines for future. The plant today has the capacity to install as many as 138 machines against the original plan to create space for 72 Machines. The plant is equipped with all required utilities and services which are expandable to match the production capacity including captive tool room for the development and repair of tools and dies.

The plant is truly zero discharge with all process and non process water being treated and recycled. Exhaust air is treated to avoid any odour to the surroundings and solid waste is managed in a scientific way.

The office space, interiors and the facade of the building makes it look like a IT park. The building stands tall in the Industrial area, facing the highway with its own identity. Many people who travel on the highway never will come to know that the building houses a red category manufacturing plant.
