Strong Safe Construction

Restoring a 90 year old heritage hospital building

The building of a prestigious and heritage hospital in Girgaon, Mumbai was in need of an urgent makeover.

The Challenge

The CSR foundation of a very large Corporate came up with the commitment to restore the hospital to its erstwhile glory by re-structuring the hospital building and revamping the healthcare services offered by the hospital. Built in 1925, the nine decade old 7 storied heritage building along with a relatively new 22 storied building was required to be renovated For this, the building architecture demanded a walling solution that is light in weight yet comes with high impact resistance and strength, good acoustic insulation, fire rating and cost effective. The solution was also expected to be fast to execute.

The Solution

The Everest team participated in this challenging task with passion and precision. The team used Everest Dry Wall Partition System with 12mm HD Board to meet the performance parameters in terms of 52dB of sound insulation, fire Rating of more than 30 mins, high impact resistance categorised as Severe Duty walls and above all Light Weight Partiton about 1/8th the weight or a normal wall. The dry wall partition system was constructed at a 4 times faster pace than conventional partition system. The technical team of Everest provided onsite technical assistance to get the product and mockup approval from the architect and provided supervision services to train local contractor as per the specification for faster completion of the project as per the schedule.
