Tata Consulting Engineers Builds Jain SRM Ashram for 100 Years of Sustainability Using Bentley Software







Tata Consulting Engineers Builds Jain SRM Ashram for 100 Years of Sustainability Using Bentley Software


Bangalore, 29 January 2016:To help design the infrastructure for the Jain SRM Ashram, a spiritual healing center in Dharampur, India, Tata Consulting Engineers Ltd. used Bentley software. Tata Consulting’s goal was to complete the project at optimal cost, utilize Smart concepts for energy efficiency and space utilization, and build for 100-year sustainability. 


Faced with a challenging site of varying steep terrain slopes, Tata Consulting used 3D terrain models to assist in decisions for land use planning and detailed design of the INR 1.8 billion international headquarters and ashram. Tata used Bentley software to create concept level “optioneering” alternatives, to develop schematic level design, and to complete detailed design. Advanced 3D modeling and project collaboration were essential in reducing project costs and time.


The team also had to plan for considerable pedestrian traffic of up to 8,000 visitors per day. Tata Consulting Engineers used Bentley’s MicroStation, Bentley Map, GEOPAK, InRoads, MXROAD, STAAD, and Haestad products which helped reduce the cost of project delivery.  Tata also used the solution to perform cost-benefit analyses to arrive at the best design to minimize maintenance and ensure efficient operation.


The project scope included establishing the Master plans to assist the project architects and planners in:


·         Effective utilization of terrain for placing buildings and roads

·         Establishment of an effective utility infrastructure master plan

·         Detailed design of infrastructure such as:

o   Water, waste water, rain water collection, recharge, storm water, site grading

o   Solid waste management

o   Retaining structures

o   Cut and fill  (structures, roads and other areas as required)

o   Parking management

o   Road Network and pavements

o   Traffic and pedestrian planning

Bengaluru residential market manages to hold steady; Start-ups add fillip to stellar performance in the office market: Knight Frank India

Bengaluru, Jan 28, 2016: Knight Frank India today launched the fourth edition of its flagship half yearly report – India Real Estate. It presents a comprehensive analysis of the residential and office market performance of Bengaluru for the period between July–December 2015 (H2 2015).
Residential Takeaways:-
Bengaluru remains one of the best performing markets with steady sales; restricted launches have cut down the stress
The city recorded  a decline of 27% Y.O.Y. in new launches in 2015 – the lowest number of launches in five years
South Bengaluru witnesses increase in new launches in H2 2015; peripheral locations such as Chandapura, Anekal emerge as upcoming budget destinations
West Bengaluru emerges as the best performing market with the least number of Quarters to Sell; metro connectivity and lifestyle projects adding to its attractiveness

Bengaluru Residential Market Trend:

Office Takeaways:-
Bengaluru office market continues to be bullish in its demand with 11.1 mn sqft absorption in  2015, the highest since 2011
Absorption in H2 2015 increases by 14% YOY; new completions remain steady
While e-commerce is in the horizon,  IT/ITeS continues to dominate in H2 2015 with 70% absorption
Peripheral office markets in the South and North witnesses increased occupier interest in H2 2015 owing to dearth of large ready spaces in other prime office markets of the city 

Office New Completions and Absorption:

Source: Knight Frank Research

Speaking about the findings, Satish BN~ Executive Director, South said:
“The Bengaluru residential market remains one of the best performing market in India. Although the residential market did witness some lows with 13% drop in launches YoY, this has in turn helped in bringing down the stress by cutting down the inventory. We presume upward pressure on prices with an expected 7% weighted average price hike in the next six months.
Bengaluru Office market, on the other hand, continues to be bullish in its demand with record high figures since 2011. However, dearth of ready-to-occupy office space is a concern as it is unable to catch up with the quantum of demand, leading to emergence of peripheral locations in the South Bengaluru witnessing occupier interest”.
