Trivandrum: ACME, a leader and pioneer in the development of green technology solutions in India, has announced that it has completed the construction of the prestigious Games Village for the 35th National Games to be held in Kerala from January 31 to February 14, 2015.
The company has handed-over the 365 housing units and 40 sets of chef-de-mission units along with the internal electrical and sanitary works to the National Games Secretariat (NGS).
The state-of-the-art prefabricated National Games Village (NGV) is spread over 28 acres on the land, belonging to Kerala SIDCO at Menamkulam, on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram, to house more than 5,000 sportspersons and officials who will participate in the Games.
The unique feature of NGV is the use of technologically advanced means of construction – Prefabrication Technology with PUF Panels, which has helped the Games Village to be completed in record time and brought in immense savings to the exchequer.
Interacting with the media, Samir Sharan, CEO of ACME said, “ACME is proud to be associated with 35th National Games and is privileged to contribute to the making of the history by setting world-class standards in the field of infrastructure sector. The construction of state-of-the-art infrastructure in a record time is a reflection of our dedication, expertise and capability and reflects our mission to participate in nation-building by using novel technologies.”
Through the use of Prefabricated Technology, ACME has made the NGV, which is one of the Asia’s largest prefabricated projects, as the ‘Greenest’, energy efficient, cost effective and time-saving. The advantage of having a prefabricated village would also ensure minimum operation costs.
It can also be relocated to any other site with a minimal expenditure for dismantling the existing structure and re-assembling with additional cost in the form of Steel Flashings / Trims, Civil Foundation, Internal Electrification and Plumbing, Hardware, Floor Finish, Wall Cladding, etc. The NGV has been set up at a cost of Rs. 42 crores, which also includes the dismantling and rebuilding cost.
Anil Kumar, Coordinator, NGS said that the government and NGS are jointly working on a legacy plan for the reuse and sale of prefab infrastructure. Government departments, sports councils, hostels, clubs, and promoting institutions are likely beneficiaries.
