In November 2015, Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems announced a joint venture for manufacturing aerostructures and collaboration on integrated systems development opportunities in India. This was a significant step in developing India’s capabilities for aerospace & defense manufacturing, thus becoming a global exporter, with an impetus to “Make in India” for defense. The key requirement of this project was on time project completion. Tata Boeing appointed Tata BlueScope Steel as a partner for constructing their facility with TBSL’s pre-engineered building solutions.
The scope of Work:
The scope for Tata BlueScope Steel included design, manufacturing, supply, project management and erection of BUTLER® building in Hyderabad by using the highest quality material with proven technology. On time delivery, leak-proof as well as a functionally superior solution with low-cost maintenance requirement were some key customer expectations. Interconnection of RCC building with PEB at near side wall and provision of future expansion for a width of 27 m was the key design challenge.
For this challenging project, Tata BlueScope Steel recommended BUTLER® Building Systems, which comes with MR-24 roof system warranted for 10 years of leak-proof performance. The solution proposed by TBSL was able to provide superior functionalities that included higher column-free space, two levels of the mezzanine floor inside the building and high-value good storage, better economic design etc.
