Oh, I'm quite sad to hear about the unusual landscape being destroyed. IS there no way they can incorporate the formations into new developments? Are they just getting rid of them all for the Lanco Hills Tower?

Well.. I took these pics while I was doing a case study on Project management with my friends...nyways we met with the senior project manager and MD ..they were all friendly and we talked about the construction of this massive project...they told me that the construction of all the towers will begin by march and the excavation work for all the towers were being done..they said the signature tower would have 110 storeys and the much of the bookings were already done...though this tower would not start along with the other towers they told me it would definitely come up

As of now one tower in IT and 5 towers in residential zone have started and excavation for the others.

I even watched the work schedule for the residential towers and each storey had about 20 days for the completion and the first tower had a completion date at dec 2008 and other towers in this zone too had the same time pattern with many of them had a completion date at jan to march 2009.







The residential zone...

According to this article (originally posted by mk) the Signature Tower will rise 112 floors high!

New construction trends to the fore
Quote:
Saturday, Mar 01, 2008
Best of practices, machinery involved in Lanco Hills project, says T. Lalith Singh

Heavy machinery crush boulders to minute particles. Huge cranes dot the entire space. There is an incessant buzz as huge craters are dug to lay foundations. And they will be foundations for what promises to boast of structures rising high to tower the cityscape.


A model of the Lanco Hills project coming up at Manikonda. Huge cranes and state-of-the art machinery deployed at the construction site.

The sprawling 180-acre site of Lanco Hills these days is witness to construction activity that perhaps is first of its kind in the city. And when construction is taken up on such massive scale, complementary technology and appropriate skill is what matters and the developers appear to be in the process of meeting the need.


Project details

The project covering residential, commercial and IT space is coming up as a series of towers in the range of 26 to 34 floors and the most visible part of it would be Signature Tower which will rise high to accommodate 112 floors.

The other features include five and four star hotels, a spacious mall projected as second biggest in the country and 16 screen multiplex. Duplex accommodation with 68 units too is part of the development being taken up here.

Each tower will boast of a dedicated helipad too! And for internal access between zones, four subways are to cut through.

Personnel involved in the construction work inform that best of the practices and machinery was scouted globally to be incorporated for the project. Almost 95 per cent of the excavation work has been completed, they inform.


Huge cranes and state-of-the art machinery deployed at the construction site

Speed is the criteria

Flat slab system, shear wall scheme, design suitable for zone-3 with additional reinforcements though seismic categorisation of Deccan as zone-2, use of 60 grade high strength concrete, procedures that enable removal of shuttering within eight to 12 hours and a site laboratory to test the material are some of the features that are part of the construction work. Machinery to pump concrete directly to the floor needed and tower cranes for vertical transmission of material are some more measures to enhance the work speed.
Uninterrupted supply

“To facilitate movement of workers, each of the towers in construction will be equipped with two hoist ways to save time and increase productivity,” explains G. Uthaya Suriyan, General Manager – Projects. Safety nets around the towers are also to come up to provide safety for the personnel involved in the work.

Fully automated plants are in place to offer uninterrupted supply of material and an example is the plant which churns out 15,000 solid blocks per shift. An IT SEZ Incubation is progressing at a brisk pace and the same is expected to be ready for occupancy in two month’s time.
