Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions, an indigenous start-up formed by IIT-Madras alumni, has teamed with Godrej Construction to introduce and commercially implement an innovative 3D construction printing (3DCP) technology in India, according to Godrej & Boyce.
Godrej Construction and Tvasta will construct sustainable infrastructure projects, housing solutions, disaster relief structures, national defense-related applications, and several other public utilities in India and around the world, inspired by Atmanirbhar Bharat.
Tvasta, a deep-technology start-up based in Chennai and Bengaluru, has created an indigenous 3DCP technology platform that uses automation and robots to provide a faster and more sustainable construction process than traditional techniques. The new platform also allows users to use modular off-site construction methods. These factors can assist minimise the overall carbon footprint of construction projects while also increasing safety by lowering the risk of worksite worker injuries.
Godrej Construction and Tvasta have teamed to produce a proof-of-concept to address the expanding needs of India’s real estate and infrastructure sectors. The bus shelter was 3D printed in 32 hours and put together on location in 8 hours. Godrej Construction and Tvasta have developed for the first time a very sustainable concrete mix design containing approximately 30% recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) sourced from concrete waste debris recycled at the Godrej Recycled Concrete Plant in Vikhroli, Mumbai, to promote the adoption of circular economy principles in the construction industry. The one-of-a-kind structure features a curved shape to highlight the aesthetic adaptability, structural advantages, and tremendous potential that this technology has to offer the building industry. It is planned to be totally energy efficient, with solar panels providing nighttime lighting for the bus stop and its commercial signage. Godrej & Boyce’s ‘Sprint’ Initiative, a company-wide intrapreneurial innovation programme, sparked the idea.
“We are pleased to cooperate with Tvasta, an indigenously produced 3D construction printing technology start-up in India,” said Anup Mathew, senior vice president and business head at Godrej Construction. Godrej Construction is dedicated to providing customer-centric, innovative, and environmentally friendly built environment solutions. We feel there is a big chance for us to leverage and scale-up the usage of this new technology for the benefit of our stakeholders, having established this pilot project together.”
Our goal now is to work together with key industry stakeholders to identify acceptable prospects for the deployment of this 3DCP technology, which is still in its early stages of development around the world.” Godrej Construction, a Rs 1000 crore division of Godrej & Boyce, is currently trying to expand its construction offerings.
“We’re thrilled to join with a pioneer and thought leader in the building materials business like Godrej Construction,” said Vidyashankar C, co-founder and COO of Tvasta. We believe that this synergy will help us scale up our technology platform quickly. As a result, Tvasta’s choice of construction solutions for the country’s many different use-cases will surely expand.”
