The Construction Development and Innovation Centre of Nuvoco Vistas Corp (formerly Lafarge India), a leading manufacturer of building materials, has received accreditation from the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, an autonomous body under the Department of Science and Technology.

Nuvoco’s innovation centre is the third cement company after Ambuja Cement and RMC (India), a division of Prism Johnson, to get the accreditation.

With the NABL accreditation, CDIC has commenced conducting tests for one of the leading developers of residential, commercial and retail spaces in Mumbai. It will assess the concrete strength, modulus of elasticity, rapid chloride penetration test, water permeability and dry shrinkage.

CDIC can now conduct more than 100 mechanical tests, out of which 55 tests come under the NABL accreditation covering a range of materials including cement, fly ash, GGBS (ground granulated blast-furnace slag), concrete, aggregates, bricks, blocks, and construction chemicals.

Madhumita Basu, Chief of Strategy, IT, Marketing and Innovation, said CDIC is a customer interface zone, where

we interact with stakeholders and capture market expectations. It is a repository of in-depth technical knowledge and expertise on building materials, she added.
