Video Webinar on TIMELY AND COST-EFFECTIVE ROAD PROJECT COMPLETION
The Covid-19 pandemic has made timely and cost-effective road project completion even more challenging than before. The challenge is not only labour availability (skilled and unskilled) but also its productivity in light of social distancing and PPE guidelines. In this context, the role of equipment and technology becomes more important. Automation and operating efficiency of equipment can help increase productivity, and lower costs. Operating efficiency, in turn, is impacted by equipment uptime and energy efficiency.
The mission of this webinar is to discuss how equipment and technology can help minimise time and cost overruns in the current environment.
The panelists are:
- Shashi Bhushan, General Manager, NHAI
- Ajay Kumar Mishra, President, Dilip Buildcon
- K. Bansal, Vice President, Roads and Runways Business, L&T
- Sudhir Jain, Vice President, Technical, HG Infra
- Rahul Agarwal, Senior Manager, Product Marketing, VE Commercial Vehicle
The 90-minute video panel discussion will feature a moderated discussion and a presentation by the technology partner followed by a Q&A with the audience. We are hoping that, during the course of the discussion, the panel will address the following questions/topics:
How has Covid-19 impacted timely and cost-effective completion of road projects (labour availability and productivity, etc.)?
What role can equipment and technology play in mitigating this impact and minimising time and cost overruns?
What are the contractor expectations with respect to equipment uptime and fuel/energy efficiency?
How can the contractors lower construction costs with automation and increased equipment efficiency?
