The technique developed to lift and shift a house seems to be gradually gaining popularity. The company which has perfected the technology is besieged with requests from those seeking to lift a home or relocate a structure.

Weeks after successfully raising a building by nearly three feet and bringing it on par with the road level at Venkataramana Colony in Nagole here, Mamchand and Sons Company has been receiving orders from different places. The company is now executing works at four temples at Kadapa, Yanam near Kakinada and Srisailam apart from two houses in the Capital.

The company technicians shifted Sri Anjaneya Swamy temple to some 200 yards back and placed it in a farmland at Chennur village in Kadapa district. The relocation work was taken up after the villagers dismayed at the district administration’s decision to demolish it for a highway, approached Mamchand and Sons.

The company technicians assured that the decades-old religious structure could be relocated without cracks, says Harkesh Kumar Chouhan of Mamchand and Sons.

In Hyderabad, a two-storeyed building owned by Amarender Goud was raised by six feet and cellar for parking vehicles was created.

According to Mr. Chouhan, the company successfully executed the work in Nagole where they lifted the structure without a single crack.
