More than 200 stalls were booked on the launch day itself, according to a release from the organisers.

The event, to be held from February 5 to 8 next year at the Codissia trade fair complex here, is sponsored by the city chapters of the Indian Institute of Architects (IIA), the Association of Consulting Civil Engineers (India) (ACCE) and the Builders’ Association of India (BAI).

CJ Ragunathan, Chairman of BuildMat 2015, said the provision of good living and working conditions for construction workers would contribute to higher productivity and loyalty, and pave the way for reduced labour shortage over time.

B Seenaiah, President of the Builders’ Association of India (BAI), underlined the need to cut construction time by improving productivity and reducing costs.
