BUILDING ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Pravin G

Chief Design Officer

Dear Friend,

Well finished is well done. The finishes are most important for any project. They protect the structure from the ravages of time and nature like impact, water , corrosion, abrasion and also add to the aesthetic appeal of the building. Finishes relates to the internal / external surfaces and features of the structure.

A builder has to take utmost care of the finishes since if badly done, they can cause slow damage to the building over the years. At asset homes we have a dedicated team to focus on the finishes alone, both internal and external. We insist on using available materials for the interiors and exterior finishes, so that they last for extended periods even without maintenance. We also use new technologies and products to deliver futuristic finishes.

In short, we extend our passion for quality to the finishes also, making our projects well protected and aesthetically appealing to eyes. Choose your Asset; it brings you the perfect finish.

Responsibly Yours,

Pravin G

For delivering superior products and services, we augment and tweak our processes on a regular basis, to include new sustainable technologies, superior raw materials, better features and seamless customer experience.

In the ensuing pages of the booklet you will get to know what sets apart your home and makes it perfect.

QUALITY FIRST. QUALITY ALWAYS.

  • Concrete mix design, based on the construction requirement, uses ideal proportions of concrete ingredients to ensure maximum strength and durability. Good quality concrete thus produced as per requirements will have the required strength, workability, impermeability, durability, density and homogeneity. We use Design Mix for all RCC works to ensure strength of the structural design.
  • Pile socketing is done in end bearing piles to improve capacities of piles to lateral loads in case the surrounding soil above the rock is weak. We provide pile socketing as per structural design.
  • Pile load tests are performed to ensure piles are capable of sustaining the ultimate design load and to determine if a more efficient design is required. Load tests are carried out on piles in the ratio of 1 for every 100 piles at the site.

Asset Q-Lab

  • A Q-lab (mobile lab) with required facilities makes routine visits at the sites to allow quality checks to ensure quality of product.
  • All construction activities of piling, excavation, concreting, painting, flooring and plastering works are checked using IN-Process checklists to ensure total quality. These checklists are prepared in line with the standards of ISO 9001:2015.
  • Quality audits are conducted at regular intervals as an effective tool to ensure compliance to standards.
  • Anti-termite treatment is executed throughout the sites as per standard specifications and warranted for 10 years. Anti-termite treatment is a process in which chemical treatment is applied to soil and building in early stages of construction. The purpose of treatment is to provide the building with a chemical barrier against the sub-terrain termites.
  • Incorporation of horizontal bands increases the seismic resistance of masonry structure. This will help all the elements to be confined together as a single unit. We provide concrete bands of 1:2:4 mix with 8-mm reinforcement steel midway for 10-cm masonry walls for extra strength, in addition to lintel bands.

Horizontal Bands in Walls

 

  • Waterproofing is done inside water tank, sump tank, swimming pool, STP, toilets, open terrace, basement area and retaining walls to avoid dampness and water leakage. Protection plastering is done over waterproofing work to ensure durability and long-lasting protection to the layer.
  • Concrete kerb is provided in sunken areas in toilets, balconies, work area and terrace to avoid dampness in walls.
  • Floor and wall tiling is done with spacer and epoxy pointing in bathrooms to avoid dampness. The epoxy joint filler used is waterproof, non-cracking, durable, stain-free and high-strength.
  • External grade tile adhesive is used for fixing tiles in terrace areas. Tile adhesives are easy to use, provide better bonding strength, spread in thinner layer and avoid moisture accumulation beneath tiles.

  • Double coat plastering is done on external walls to prevent water seepage and dampness. It also results in smooth and even surface.
  • Exterior grade putty is used for internal putty works. This acts as a perfect base for top coats and increases the durability of topcoat paints.
  • Stretchable paint on walls is provided. It offers strong bonding and resists hairline cracks and dampness. In addition, it helps in reducing surface heat to a great extent.
  • Two component etching primer is applied on all structural steel fabrication works to provide extra corrosion protection and to increase the adhesive property of the subsequent coats.
  • High quality patch fittings are used in toughened glass erection jobs. These type of fittings are sophisticated in design, slim and elegant in shape and action.
  • MUPRO channels are provided at ring main. Hot dipped slotted rails are used for bracing ring main lines wherever it is open to atmosphere, which increases the durability and strength of the system.

    Vertical plumbing lines inside the ducts are supported at every -quarter points of floor-to-floor height.

    Horizontal plumbing lines 110mm to 160mm are supported at 1-m spacing using 10 mm thread rods with anchor bolts.

  • INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY IMPLEMENTATION-We have introduced an innovative new material of Clay hollow blocks for our internal walls . These blocks are 60% lighter, offer more strength immense fire protection, have an extremely long life of 150 years. Clay hollow blocks also allow easy chasing and chiselling with minimum breakage and material wastage unlike conventional blockwork.

QUALITY ASSURED. SAFETY ENSURED.

Lightning protection system (LPS)

  • There are no devices or methods for protection against natural weather phenomena to the extent that they can prevent lightning discharges. Lightning flashes to, or nearby, structures (or lines connected to the structures) are hazardous to the people, to the structures themselves, their contents and installations as well as to the lines. This is why the application of lightning protection measures is essential.

External LPS (for protection of structure).

  • Intercepts lightning flash to the structure
  • Conducts lightning current safely toward the earth.
  • Disperses lightning current into the earth.

Internal LPS (for protection of electrical and electronic equipment from surges)

  • Avoids the occurrence of dangerous sparking within the structures due to lightning current flowing in the external LPS or in other conductive parts of the structure.
  • Avoids dangerous sparking between different parts by means of equipotential bonding or electrical insulation between the parts.
  • Avoids permanent failure of electrical and electronic systems due to lightning electromagnetic impulse (LEMP) through conducted and induced surges transmitted to equipment via connected wiring.
  • Protects against the effects of conducted and induced surges in the line by using coordinated SPD systems (CAPE).
  • Separate earthing system is used for elevators, which keeps the elevators in sound condition.

 

  • Conventional down conductor earthing system for structural safety protects the structure from lightning impact by reducing the probability of damage due to lightning current flowing in the LPS. The down conductors are arranged in such a way that several parallel current paths exist around the perimeter of the building at equal distance, and the length of the down conductor is kept to a minimum. Well-defined earthing system as per IS-Code is used for DG, transformer, HT and LT panels, which ensures protection of man and machine.
  • Elevator control panels are synchronized to reduce power consumption.
  • Elevators are incorporated with Automatic Rescue Device for the security of passengers in case of power failure.
  • FRLS wires which have special flame retardant and low smoke emitting properties are used for LT works. The insulation on these type of wires is resistant to boiling water, steam and vapours. This prevents ageing and cracking of wires in kitchens, bathrooms, and even damp walls.
  • Depth of swimming pools in our buildings is restricted to 115 cm. This is to protect residents from mishaps like drowning.
  • Inside the building compound humps are provided to limit the speed of vehicles.
  • Rubber fenders on parking area pillars are provided to avoid damage to vehicles.

EFFICIENT WATER USE. SUFFICIENT WATER FOR USE.

  • A well-defined water supply and management system consists of water source, underground sump, overhead distribution tank and adequate filtering system. There will be a water supply source, either bore well or open well, having sufficient water yield as per design requirement. Underground sump performs the raw water collection from bore well/open well. UG sump has the provisions to store firewater, raw water, domestic water and municipal water separately. Source water is fed to fire tank through pumping. From this, water flows to the raw water chamber through overflow. Raw water is treated via suitable water treatment system. Treatment system is based on test report of the source water. This treated water is meant for domestic purpose. KWA water is directly stored in the municipal water chamber at UG sump. Domestic and municipal water is fed to OHT through pumping. Water distribution to the end user is from here. Both domestic and drinking water is tested every 6 months for upgrading the filter system if any quality change occurs in water.

  • Sewage treatment plant (STP) is used to treat the sewage, sullage and grey water. The method of treatment is MBBR (Moving Bed Bio Reactor). Treated water from the STP is again treated by ultra-filtration system for reuse. The BOD (Bio Oxygen Demand) of treated water is tested every six months to evaluate the functioning of STP. and to ensure that BOD is below
