Elaborating the use of the technologically-advanced Prefabrication Technology, Mr. Sharan added, “Prefabrication Technology is the key to the future of the infrastructure sector that is reeling under pressure to meet the requirements of a growing economy supporting 1.2 bn populations. We had delivered many successful projects in the past in record time and the National Games Village, which is Asia’s largest prefabricated installation, will serve as the model infrastructure for the sector to emulate.”
