Kolkata:  How many buildings in the realty sector use 10 inches wall? How many high-rises sprawling the city use M20 grade concrete, isolated footing and isolated framed structure? How many construction sites are created and reinforced through scientific soil evaluation, appropriate grading, pier work, waterproofing and regular inspection?

The devastation caused by the recent earthquakes has taught us a few lessons in construction. We have seen that tall mighty towers can be reduced to rubble in a matter of seconds. Tall constructions are inevitable in the metropolitan cities, in suburban areas where India Green Reality chooses its sites only compact bungalows are environmentally viable and safer during earthquakes.Greenlan - project site

India Green Reality is conscious of the fact that only quality constructions can withstand the ravages of time and natural disasters. That’s why quality is the focal point at every stage of construction. Unenforced brick or concrete block is a strict no-no.

High-rise apartment buildings with only 6-inch thin outer walls are perfect recipes for disaster. Lack of adequate quality measures make this type of tall structures vulnerable to a lateral force from an earthquake. The foundation of every India Green bungalow, at all the construction sites, is created and reinforced through scientific soil evaluation, appropriate grading, pier work, waterproofing and regular inspection.

M20 grade concrete, isolated footing and isolated framed structure are used for earthquake resistance. Every bungalow comes with minimum 12-inch pillar girth and 10-inch wide walls to ensure enduring strength. Building materials have to pass stringent quality check and the construction process is always done under supervision of experts. What’s more, a buyer who needs assurance can inspect the construction and quality control process at the India Green Reality’s construction sites.

In India, there are building codes, standards and regulations drawn up to ensure safety of constructions both during natural disasters and accidents. India Green Reality strictly adheres to IS: 456-2000 and other construction codes, and meets its own stringent standards as well. Adhering to ethics is a part of its corporate philosophy and as a responsible corporate citizen it often goes beyond standards laid down by statutory bodies.
