REALEX ERP (Real Estate Management cum Accounting Software) is one of major products, which has made its way into many Real Estate Companies since 1992. 80 percent of Real Estate
Companies in the State of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh use the Software. My business has flourished by word of Mouth Publicity of my satisfied customers. My 1992 customer is still our customer till date. Any diversified business my customers have come up with, we have provided software solutions. The other Software products are FINEX (Financial accounting and software), COUREX (Courier operations and accounting), PAYEX (Payroll management), COOPEX (Employee credit cooperative societies), BOOKEX (for Book distributors and management), FUNDEX (for private banks), Watex (Package drinking water Manufactures) etc. We have led to fast-track the construction process and reduce the interferences. Introduction of drones allowed for aerial surveying and mapping of a place. People are also using advanced materials like honeycomb structures and foams for greater strength, polyester fibre for improved durability in the refitting of sewage and water pipes.
The other technologies include cloud-based solutions, allowing changes and updates to documents and schedules in real time, facilitating better communication and collaboration. Mobile technology allows for real time data collection and transmission between the job site and project managers in the back office.
The impact of latest technology innovations on the construction industry is immense. Robotic technology provides the construction industry with a variety of advantages. Robots are being deployed to increase productivity and reduce the risks involved in the construction. How do see this new trend to minimize the role of human in the construction activities?
A. Construction industry is a labour-intensive industry which is fraught with dangers; therefore the importance of construction robots has grown rapidly. Application of robotics in the industry started in early 90s aiming to optimize equipment operations, improve safety, enhance perception of workspace and ensure quality environment for building occupants. Robotics and automation in the industry have brought in revolutionary changes in the sector resulting in,
• Higher safety for both workers and the public through deployment machines for dangerous jobs. • Better quality with higher accuracy than that is provided by the skilled worker.
• Improvement of the work environment with reduction in manual work
• Increased productivity and work efficiency with reduced costs.
Unlike ships, the marine offshore structures are designed for a particular location. What are the major challenges involved in the construction of marine offshore structures taking into consideration the uneven fluid
structure interactions? How does technology help to overcome these challenges?
A.The challenges of marine construction are multifold which vary from site to site. There is limited choice of locations for Greenfield and Brownfield projects with back end integration of support facilities and logistics. The challenges can be addressed by taking the following measures
• Deciding the suitable layout plan by taking advantage of the natural factors such as current, siltation pattern, soil strata, etc.
• The design of the structure with load bearing capacity considering the soil sliding.
• Adopting the option of retaining wall in case of locations having threat of landslides.
• Going with nature, the marine structures can be planned by extending offshore with approach trestle.
• Rely on pile foundation and allow free flow of water.
• Assessment of soil strata under seabed by sufficient bore holes to pre-assess the uneven soil strata.
• Design to interconnect piles with beams to distribute load
• Use of pre-cast deck slabs, hydraulic piling rigs.
Lane closures during the construction or renovation of bridges and roads in large urban areas with heavy traffic have a significant impact on commercial and industrial activities of the area. How can technology be leveraged to minimize the traffic disruptions at the bridge and road construction sites?
A. Because of the potential economic and safety impacts of the lane closures, minimizing traffic disruptions is a goal that should be elevated to a higher priority when planning bridge related construction projects. Heavy lifting equipment that is more compact and can handle more weight can be used to take the pieces of the bridge and put them into place. Use of construction cameras can also reduce significant risks on the construction sites.
Technology has been reshaping the construction industry with latest innovations like IoT, Robotics, AI etc. How do you foresee the future technology trends that would propel construction industry growth?
A. Technology is impacting the construction industry like never before. From cloud-based collaboration and the development of digital twins to robots, super-materials, wearable tech, pollution-eating buildings, and artificial intelligence – an array of technological developments are helping to improve the sector. These technologies have brought about a sea-change in the construction industry that has helped businesses optimize the resources.
