‘Build Rock’ begins today

Special Correspondent

To showcase the latest products and technologies

TIRUCHI: The annual exhibition of building materials, Build Rock, of the Tiruchi Centre of the Builders Association of India will open in the City on Wednesday.

Build Rock 08 would showcase the latest products and technologies that were available in the market and also serve as a one-stop shop for people building/looking to build houses. This is the 11th consecutive year that BAI has been organising the exhibition in the City. Last year the exhibition attracted over 10,000 visitors.

This year, the BAI has also decided to introduce a free consultancy service for queries/problems of visitors. The queries would have to be written down and posted in a box kept for the purpose. A team of engineers would process them and reply in detail, either by post or, if necessary, in person, the chairman of the Tiruchi Chapter of the BAI, C. Kumaravelu, told reporters here on Tuesday.

Five-day event

The five-day exhibition would host 75 stalls. Over 50 manufacturers/dealers would display their wares including steel, cement, electrical and wood products, flooring, roofing, plumbing materials, furniture and kitchen ware. The event would bring in several new and latest products including partition walls and panels. This year, there has been an attempt to promote more stalls on interior exhibition, said M. Thirusangu, Project Chairman.

“While big builders have no problems in hiring architects and interior decorators, people building individual houses find it difficult. The exhibition, we hope, would give them an idea on their options and what is available in the market,” Mr. Thirusangu said.

A separate stall on Vaasthu would also form part of the exhibition. Orders placed during the exhibition are also likely to come with discount offers. The exhibition at the Makkal Mandram in Thillai Nagar will be open from 3.30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 to p.m. on Saturday/Sunday till December 28. Entry is free.
