Setting a new national record, a 10-storeyed building of steel has been erected in just 48 hours in Mohali. The challenge to raise the tower has been accomplished by a Mohali-based company, Synergy Thrislinglton.

When it struck 4.30 pm, the staff engaged in the raising of the steel structure erupted in celebration as the deadline for the completion of the building had been met. More than 200 skilled workers of the company stood proud in front of the skyscraper as awestruck onlookers watched the building inching towards the finish.

A visibly elated Harpal Singh, the brain behind the idea and owner of the company, said today, they had shown the world their skills of constructing buildings the fastest way.

“In several fields, we have already shown the world our worth but the construction of building was one of the fields where we were lagging behind among the developed countries. Today’s achievement of ours has brought us equal to those developed countries, which are already using this technology to construct buildings,” he said.

After the completion of the building, the ground floor was opened for the staff, the media and other invitees. The floor was furnished as a corporate office.

Terming the factory-made sample building an intelligent or smart structure, he said it was fireproof, bulletproof, energy efficient and would have the lowest CO2 emissions. The curtains would automatically cover the windows panes in the afternoon. This technology has a vast potential for totally revolutionising the much-needed infrastructure technology in the country by rapidly speeding up the construction of commercial towers, luxury hotels, high-rise buildings, hospitals, educational institutions and retail outlets, added Harpal Singh.
