Godrej Construction partners with IIT-M based start-up Tvasta to pioneer indigenous 3D Construction Printing in India

Godrej Construction has partnered with Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions, an indigenous start-up founded by IIT-Madras alumni, to introduce and commercially deploy an innovative 3D Construction Printing (3DCP) Technology in India supporting the Construction & Real Estate Sector. Through this partnership, the companies have jointly developed, for the first time, a very sustainable concrete mix comprising of approximately 30% Recycled Concrete Aggregates.
We are optimistic that our partnership with a thought leader in the building materials sector such as Godrej Construction will aid in the rapid scale-up of our technology platform, which in turn, will extend our range of construction solutions.

Vidyashankar C, Co-Founder and COO, Tvasta

Tvasta’s 3DCP technology platform leverages automation and robotics for a faster and more sustainable construction process, compared to conventional methods of construction. The platform also offers the option of adopting modular off-site construction techniques. These factors can help reduce the overall carbon footprint for construction projects, and even improve safety by reducing the possibility of injuries to onsite workmen.
Godrej Construction is committed towards providing innovative and sustainably designed customer-centric solutions for the built environment. We believe that there is a great opportunity for us to leverage and scale-up the use of this new technology for the benefit of our stakeholders.

To promote a Circular Economy in the Construction industry, Godrej Construction, along with Tvasta, have developed a very sustainable concrete mix design comprising of approximately 30% of Recycled Concrete Aggregates (RCA), sourced from concrete waste debris, and recycled at the Godrej Recycled Concrete Plant at Vikhroli, Mumbai. This newly developed 3DCP concrete mix offers great promise for developing and using construction materials with a lower embodied carbon, which can help in the design and development of innovative solutions for a more sustainable built environment.

Inspired by the nation’s call for an ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’, Godrej Construction and Tvasta aim to deploy this technology for the development of various sustainable infrastructure projects, housing solutions, disaster relief structures, national defence related applications, and other public amenities in India and globally.

Proof Of Concept using 3DCP technology to create a sustainable and inclusive bus shelter. The Bus Shelter was 3D Printed within a span of 32 hours and assembled on site within 8 hours. The unique structure has a distinct physical design – a curvilinear geometry to showcase the aesthetic versatility, structural advantages, and excellent potential that this technology has to offer to the Construction Industry. It is designed to be completely energy efficient with independent solar panels for lighting the bus shelter and its commercial signage at night.
