Pune-based Panchshil Realty has adopted ‘Dry Construction Technique (DCT)’, a method that reduces the usage of water at its residential project Panchshil Towers at ​Kharadi.​

The company claims that due to this advanced technology it has succeeded in saving nearly a million lit​re of water so far.

“Panchshil Realty is one of the pioneers in dry construction techniques in India. We take pride in delivering a global product with life-long value and appreciation for our customers. As a result, we have always benchmarked ourselves against the very best globally and introduced several innovations and construction best practices in the Indian market. Product quality and leadership are at the core of our organisation and run through every aspect of our value chain,” Atul Chordia, Chairman, Panchshil Realty, said.

The company has used paving blocks to build roads at the facility, rather than the conventional mode of using concrete. This saves water and also allows rain-water to percolate into the ground during monsoon, resulting in increasing in ground-water table.

DCT also includes the use of lightweight material, structures and systems created on the principle of lightweight construction. Within the apartment, DCT involves the construction of interior walls, ceilings and floors using plastered or microfiber board that is joint at the time of installing.

Apart from dry wall and ceiling; the façade is also done with aluminum composite panels instead of brickwork and plaster which is easy to maintain and ensures a fresh and contemporary façade for the long-term. This technique has also been followed at other projects of Panchshil such as Yoopune (by Philippe Starck) and Tech Park One.
