Prestigious awards reaffirm L&T's construction prowess
L&T’s Buildings & Factories (B&F) arm has won the ‘Made in Tekla 2022 - The League of Extraordinary Success Stories’ award in engineering & construction category. Tekla is a software product family comprising programmes for analysis and design, detailing and project communication.
The entry of B&F’s Engineering Design and Research Centre (EDRC) – ‘Tekla Structures: A Unique Digital Solution to Precast Detailing and Construction’ – was chosen by an international jury. The uniqueness of the project and its challenges, uniqueness in the use of Tekla, extent of use, its benefits and a case study with a video presentation were among the elements evaluated.
L&T’s entry was based on real-time work associated with one of its latest residential projects – the construction of multi-storeyed buildings using precast technology (a large precast concrete panel system) for a residential project of CIDCO in Navi Mumbai.
This was the first project for which L&T used Tekla’s Precast Building Information Modelling (BIM). The project benefitted from BIM’s precast detailing, custom components, precast connections, etc., primarily due to construction-friendly drawings. Tekla Precast BIM was the basis for digital apps DigiCast and ProCube used at the project.
L&T Construction Research and Testing Centre (LTCRTC) won the prestigious Prof SK Joshi Laboratory Excellence Award instituted by the Quality Council of India (QCI).
The award was presented at QCI’s silver jubilee celebrations in New Delhi on 6 October with Union Minister Mr Piyush Goyal present as the chief guest.
The award recognises laboratories (testing, medical, and calibration) that have to their credit outstanding achievements in quality control in their services and benchmarked the best practices.
Over 500 laboratories from across India had sent in entries for the award. This followed a four-stage stringent screening process – scrutiny, presentation, on-site assessment, and jury evaluation.
The winners were largely from the food and biotechnology industry, with LTCRTC being the only one from the construction sector.
