Yesterday, I along with Hidco's team of engineers, visited the site of TCS's IT Construction zone where construction work is going over a 40 acre plot of New Town. I wanted to know the project management tools and mechanical tools used by the private sector. Some of the elements that I liked were (1) Web Camera to monitor construction site from control room (2) a special software that recognises engineering drawings, convert these to 3D to see that conflicts and fouls don't takke place among utilities (3) threading of steel rods, like water pipes, to make columns (4) mechanical pile breakers (5) table-top shuttering (6) use of curing compound (7) "alufox" cladding for columns (8) hydraulic pile drivers and (9) modern workers' sheds and conference room at site.
Here is a picture:
