KEF Infra – Infrastructure Development Company

Infrastructure development plays an integral role in the growth of any economy. We are currently experiencing a revolution in the infrastructure industry and economies need to channelize their efforts in order to become future ready and adapt to the changing trends. Traditional methods of building are no longer sustainable as they are impacted by a lot of project delays due to climate changes, labour availability, and accessibility of material or due to regulatory approvals. These methods are also subject to a number of external factors that impact the build quality and the delivery time. These delays in infrastructure can also impact other sectors such as education and healthcare and reflect on the overall economy at large. In order to bridge this gap, and provide better access to quality infrastructure, KEF Infra has set out to employ more evolved and innovative methods of building technologies.

We understand that technology is the answer when demands and expectations from the infrastructure industry is high. Urban growth and development requires time and cost reducing solutions that only technology and higher skilled workforce can provide. By developing a long term solution, with science, design and technology as the foundation, we are positive that the gap shall be bridged.

Technology, innovation and automation are the main driving forces for progress and at KEF Infra, we offer the most efficient and cost effective building solutions without sacrificing architectural design or site utilization. WE are the pioneers in Offsite Manufacturing and have a state of the art offsite manufacturing facility that ensures that quality is maintained at every stage.

Infrasturcture

Offsite Manufacturing – the building process is taken away from the physical site to a controlled factory environment. There is a great improvement in terms of cost savings, time to deliver and the quality of the final structure.

Precast – this is the process of creating a construction product (a pillar, column or a beam) by casting concrete in a reusable mould. This is then cured in a controlled environment and then transported to the physical site and lifted to place.

Modular Construction – this is based on the idea of ‘assemble rather than build’. It brings about a paradigm shift in terms of infrastructure development – especially in the units such as hospitals, hotels and homes.

Above all, these techniques allow for more control over the final product and provide greater efficiency and speed of delivery. It also ensures that the final product is of the highest quality.

These methods are more appealing to the modern age infrastructure because, they are extremely cost effective, agile and sustainable with absolutely no compromise on quality.

The focus is to revolutionize technology and address the real world problems and provide innovative solutions that are sustainable – even in the long run. We believe in being the trends setters, path breakers and change makers to redefine construction!

Why should you use precast concrete for construction?

Rapid urban development requires the help of new technology to go beyond more the traditional building methods. Precast infrastructure is one such technology that provides the means to bring up structures easily, quickly, and conveniently.

Precast technology provides the solution to infrastructural demands. It prefabricates units used in infrastructure development in controlled factory areas situated off-site. Once transported to the construction sites, these units are easy to assemble and fit to complete a structure. Reusable moulds are used to cast concrete off-site.  The concrete is cured and made ready for transportation to sites. What are the advantages of using this prefabricated concrete? Look at some of the benefits of using this material for infrastructural needs.

Precast Infrastructure in India

Less cumbersome
Precast concrete does away with the need to move cumbersome machines and all other raw material needed for making concrete to the site. It reduces the work of mixing, and carrying the mixture manually to be poured into casts prepared manually. Factory made units of concrete are a convenient construction alternative.

Versatility
Precast concrete is used in all types of construction work- for building houses, commercial buildings, infrastructure development projects, and special projects. The units come in both standard shapes and sizes and can also be custom made and designed for a particular structural needs. The range of precast concrete units extends from wall sections, to concrete beams and panels to hollow blocks.

Quality
Concrete units are superior in quality. They are uniform in size, each has the same density and dimension. The standardized product ensures a better finish for the building.

Durability
Concrete produces a tough surface that withstands corrosion for long periods of time. Precast concrete has the added advantage of tighter tolerance levels. The concrete mix made in the factory uses optimum water and is adequately compacted. Problems of curing are avoided with the use of precast concrete. The units are given correct drying time and the process of drying is carried out in a controlled environment to give them maximum strength.

Benefit to the environment
Use of these concrete units benefits the environment by reducing pollution of concrete dust. Natural materials are used to manufacture this concrete to help in controlling environmental damage. The process of production absorbs atmospheric carbon dioxide and cleans the air. During demolition of structures, these units cause less pollution and toxicity in the area. The units are reusable which further helps in environmental conservation.

Variety of finish
The end user gets to choose from a range of finishes according to requirement. There are non skid surfaces, patterned surfaces, and smooth surfaces available. All the surfaces can easily be treated chemically and polished for better appearance.

Using precast concrete for construction work is a smart decision. It is safe, profitable, and durable. Precast infrastructure has rapidly grown in popularity because of its versatility and high quality. Using the blocks and units simplifies the task of constructing buildings.
