A review on need of implementation of modern construction techniques and equipment in Indian construction sector
The contribution of Indian construction sector to the GDP is approximately 10%. A massive growth is taking place in the construction sectors due to the boom in IT sectors and other fast growing services in the country. With the rapid growth in infrastructure demand, several new challenges have emerged in various forms, like massive number of projects, strict time stipulations, quality and safety assurance, unexpected rise/jump in the prices of materials essentially required for the construction project development. Outdated methods and old equipment’s that used in India are creating obstacles to that growth. This paper focuses on identifying the factors influencing selection of equipment and then discusses how productivity and safety at work place can be increased based on results from old researchers and available data’s. It also focuses on kind of equipment’s that are used and how applicability and selection criteria for equipment is done using a sample example. Furthermore, it highlights the applications and significance of interpretive structural modelling for construction sector.
