With the construction sector in India expected to remain buoyant, growing demand requires developers in India to go for high-rise constructions and hence explore faster, greener and more efficient construction methods. Gypsum Plasterboard based ceilings and drywall solutions are ideal for such construction as they are lightweight, environmentally friendly, facilitate faster construction and offer a lot of flexibility in terms of aesthetics. They can be designed to deliver a superior performance across comfort parameters like acoustics, thermal, visual, air-quality and provide fire-safety as well.
Keeping in line with the government’s focus towards the re-generation of existing cities and urban areas as part of its urban development mission, market leader Saint-Gobain’s Gyproc business in India is rapidly taking the lead in offering efficient and green construction solutions and has already gained a strong foothold in the construction market.
