Artius @ Acetech 2017, Mumbai
Mumbai was a new city for us. Though we were extremely excited to be in "the city of dreams", it was a bit scary as well. We had heard that the city does not give a second chance!!. We had to be at the top of our game to attract the attention and that is what we did. What a great week!!
The challenge was to be able to build a 1500 sqft home complete with luxury interiors and fitted with various window and door systems. Timber homes have usually been associated with small hut like buildings with low ceilings, small windows and doors, too much wood everywhere. Although they look nice and cozy to begin with but one tends to loose the charm over time as too much wood becomes overbearing. We wanted to showcase our capabilities to build luxurious modern timber frame homes that offered high ceilings and large glass areas.
It was a sprint to the finish line as we only had 4 days/nights to put everything in show ready state. The work started way back in the month of Sep in our factory where we manufactured all our Glulam beams, columns, walls, roof etc and did a dry run of fitting the entire structure to weed out any issues
