Karnatakas first factory built

1 lakh sq.ft. residential complex designed and constructed in a record 9 months by KEF Infra All elements of the buildings were manufactured at "KEFInfraOne" wholly owned and operated by KEF Infra in Krishnagirithat, once completed in December this year, will be the world's largest integrated facility for offsite construction.  The 208 bathrooms in the project were fully prefabricated, inclusive of all Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing (MEP), sanitary ware, tiling and fittings, in KEFInfraOne and transported 850km to the project site in Mangalore. Mangalore, 21 October 2015: KEF Infra, the infrastructure arm of the Singapore-based KEF Holdings, today delivered India's first wholly factory-made residential project called “MeridiYEN” to Yenepoya University of Mangalore. The project, comprising three 8-storey residential buildings covering an area of 1 lakh sq.ft, was completed in record nine months, and marks the successful initiation of a gamechanging offsite construction technology that helps significantly reduce the duration of construction. In comparison, conventional construction methods would have taken anywhere between 24 and 36 months to complete a project of similar size. The complex for staff and students, comprising 96 apartments, with each floor featuring 12 twobedroom units, was completely designed, preengineered and manufactured at KEF Infra One Industrial Park in Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu. The state-of-the-art facilities is the only plant in the world to design, pre-engineer and manufacture every element of a building, which include wall panels, hollow core slabs, bathrooms, facades, windows, doors etc. --- at a single location. Mr. Faizal E. Kottikollon, the Founder-Chairman of KEF Holdings, handed over the complex to Mr. Yenepoya Abdulla Kunhi, Chancellor of Yenepoya University, at a ceremony today. The event was attended by 300 distinguished guests, Mr. Ramanath Rai, Minister of Forest, Environment and Ecology, Govt of Karnataka, Mr. U T Khader, Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Govt of Karnataka, Mr. Nalin Kumar Kateel, Member of Parliament, Dakshina Kannada, Mr. Ivan D'Souza, Member of Legislative Council and Mr. B Ahmed HajeeMohiudeen, Chairman BA Group. Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Kottikollon said the new complex marked many firsts in India's construction industry. “This complex is made using offsite technology in its entiret. All elements of the buildings were manufactured at KEF Infra One Industrial Park in Krishnagiri, which, once completed in December this year, will be the world's largest integrated facility for offsite construction.” Mr. Kottikollon added: “KEF is committed to creating a socio-economic impact in India by introducing path-breaking technologies. Our initial focus is on three key sectors --- infrastructure, education and healthcare. In line with India government's vision of 'Make in India', our primary focus is on infrastructure development by bringing in the best global practices, technologies and processes and integrate them to ensure enhanced quality benchmark and a significant reduction in time and money spent. This is evident from the fact that we were able to handover the Yenepoya's residential project in a record nine months since its groundbreaking. If the traditional methods of construction were to be deployed, a project of this magnitude would have taken up to two to three years to complete.” KEF's team meticulously planned the construction schedule of the project. The task involved the seamless coordination and transportation of the fully finished prefabricated elements from KEF Infra One to the site office at Yenepoya University Campus in Mangalore. The project's 208 bathrooms were fully prefabricated, inclusive of all mechanical, electrical and plumping works, sanitary wares, tiling and fittings. Innovative graphic concrete technology from Finland was used for the facade. “We are the only company in the world to design, pre-engineer and manufacture every element of a building ranging from wall panels, hollow core slabs, bathrooms, facades and windows to doors. The perfect finish, superb construction quality and speed of delivery underscore our expertise in infrastructure development, precast blocks, prefabricated bathrooms, joinery and aluminum glazing,” said Mr. Kottikollon. Mr. Yenepoya Abdulla Kunhi, Chancellor of Yenepoya University, said: “For Yenepoya University, the first private university in the district of Dakshin Kannada, the decision to become the first client of KEF Infra is further testimony to our rich tradition of embracing innovation and new technologies,” said the Chancellor
