WOW ! What a promise, delivered floor by floor, and that too, dot in time. An entrepreneur who had promised to get a 10-floor building ready and up in Mohali, near Chandigarh, has done just that. The building Instacon, is ready  just 48 hours after its foundation stone had been laid.

 

 

 

The construction work had started at 4.30 pm on Thursday and by Friday evening, the building had seven floors ready. But as the deadline approached, the entire 10 floor-building  was ready even though the glass-panes and other fittings were being put by the workers.

 

 

 

The building used pre-fabricated material, including 200 tonnes of steel. Entrepreneur Harpal Singh, who heads the Rs 1,000-crore Synergy Thirlingston, had made the promise it will be the first building in the country to be built in just 48 hours. The model has been cleared for Zone-V seismic area, the highest risk zone for earthquakes. The material being used was manufactured in the past two months in a nearby factory. No bricks and sand have been used at all. The outer wall is a double-skinned PUF panel. The cost is almost the same as in conventional construction. It saves a lot of time that goes into construction, otherwise.
