Chandigarh businessman claims to set up a 10-storey building in 48 hours

Chandigarh A 10-storey building, set to come up in just 48 hours. A businessman in Chandigarh claims it is possible, and he will prove it.

Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal is set to lay the foundation stone of the 10-storey building, INSTACON, on Thursday.

The brain behind the project, businessman Harpal Singh, says the building will be ready within two days.

The building is set to come up in Industrial Area Phase-I of Mohali town, 10 km from the city.

Harpal Singh claims this is the first building of its kind in the country. "All the components have been manufactured already, doors that can be pre-fitted, water supply components, wiring, sanitation, air conditioning ducts and everything else. These will be shifted in state-of-the-art transporting vehicles to the actual site for installation," he said.

He claimed that new construction technology would enable owners of such buildings to generate revenue within days, instead of waiting for months and years before the building is complete.

He said that the technology could revolutionise the whole infrastructure sector and speed up construction of commercial towers, luxury hotels, high-rise buildings, hospitals, educational institutions, universities and retail outlets.

Mr Singh said architects, planners and engineers were being invited to witness the construction of INSTACON.
