All industrial associations should work together
Builders and contractors should focus on developing environment-friendly buildings, Chairman of Confederation of Indian Industry – Coimbatore, Ravi Sam, said here on Monday.
Inaugurating Coimbatore Builders' and Contractors' Association, he said that when builders and contractors constructed houses, apartments and factories, they should develop green buildings.
They should also focus on skill development as it would help improve the quality of construction. When migrant workers from other States were employed at construction sites and they lived with their families, the children of the workers should have education facilities. The CII would appeal to the State Government for Greater Coimbatore Development Authority, he said.
Vanitha Mohan, Managing Trustee of Siruthuli, urged the builders and contractors to build not just houses or factories but temples of work and homes.
Owning a house was a dream for all and it was a basic need. Siruthuli had constructed 300 water harvesting structures here. The association could help in this initiative to harvest rain water.
N. Subramaniam, Managing Director of Habasit Iakoka, said all industrial associations here should work together for the development of the city.
T.S. Ramani Sankar, Chief Architect of Sankar and Associates, urged the members of the new association to have team effort and determination to achieve its mission.
C.T. Narayanan, President of Coimbatore Builders' and Contractors' Association, said the association would focus on self-development, training, city development and better industry-institute interaction.
