  • Thanks to the sustainable engineering benchmarks set by passionate industry thought leaders and the globally leading engineering solutions providers, today, if someone uses the word green or sustainable in their tagline, they need to be able to back it up with their action. In fact, sustainable infrastructure management & maintenance is as big a challenge as infrastructure development, especially in third-world cities. The lack of incorporation of an elaborate maintenance strategy into the whole-life-cycle planning is one of the major elements that intensifies this challenge. Be it public or private sector projects, quality, and sustainable construction and maintenance make a huge difference to nation building. This makes innovative maintenance measures identified and executed based on the merit of the situations a dire need of the hour to minimize the costs and ensure the highest quality maintenance in the long term.
