Pune: In a discussion on ‘Green building solutions’ organised by Jaisons Construction Solutions, Vivek Gadgil, Chief Executive of L&T said that in an industry which is growing so rapidly, focus on green building solutions is necessary. 

The programme was organised along with the launch of three green building solution products by the Jaisons Group on Saturday.

Gadgil said, “As the expanse of the construction industry widens, more is the need for eco-friendly practices and green building solutions. We need young, creative and innovative minds in the industry to come forward with plans and solutions to achieve the green target for buildings.” Mandar Deogaonkar, Managing Director of the Jaisons Group, said they are bringing global technology to India.  “We have come up with a pavement block designed to let the rainwater percolate through it and be harvested underground.  This can be used on footpaths, gardens and other open spaces. We approached the Pune Municipal Corporation to use our blocks for their pavements.” 

Deogaonkar said they are also launching  heat-resistant waterproofing and lightweight insulating concrete products.
