Using Engineering Expertise For Customer's Happiness.
FROM THE DIRECTOR'S DESK
The thought leaders and the Government in the Construction industry are taking sustainability very seriously. Sustainable design will be critical as construction companies seek to reduce their energy consumption. Engineering and construction leaders face pressure as they try to maintain efficient processes with multiple suppliers and subcontractors, along with a focus on controlling costs. At the same time the industry is trying to develop structures that are taller, greener, scalable, healthier and more technologically advanced.
Considering the nature of the construction business there are no entry barriers-financial or educational, to start a Construction business. Professionals have to compete with entrants without a formal training or education. Most of the times Quality, Safety and other important issues are ignored.
Does this affect sustainability? Creating high-quality durable structures through the advice of professionals is also sustainability ie. Creating a structure which will be environmentally friendly at the same time is assessed by learned construction professionals having proficiency. Having the structure assessed and evaluated through professional construction consultants will also create value and help the environment. Taking the help of construction engineering professionals should be considered in the sustainability model as the 8th principal of sustainability and policies be framed accordingly.
