  • | Tuesday | 28th November, 2023

GURGAON: Two days after a survey report was filed by Edifice Engineering — the company that razed Supertechs twin towers in Noida — on demolition of five unsafe towers of Paradiso in Sector 109, Chintels India on Monday wrote to deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav seeking the district administrations support and security arrangements to vacate buildings and barricade unsafe common areas.The developer also requested the deputy commissioner to direct RWA and residents not to violate safety measures suggested by Edifice. Chintels reiterated that it wont be responsible for any mishap if residents flout safety norms. Edifice on Saturday had suggested immediate remedial action at Paradiso till the demolition after conducting a physical verification on each floor and apartment in the towers declared unsafe. Declared unsafe areas of the project should be immediately barricaded to avoid any untoward incident. Tanks on the terrace of all towers should be emptied of water immediately to reduce load on main columns of the towers to avoid collapse risk. Electricity supply to all the five towers also should be immediately disconnected to avoid havoc created by fire due to falling of internal parts of the towers. Non-tower areas are filled with soil for landscaping which is adding additional load on the podium slab and may lead to its collapse, Edifice stated in its report.A senior executive of Chintels India said in the letter that the demolition firm has suggested immediate measures to be taken to prevent any untoward incident during the exercise. Considering weak condition of the five towers as per the audit report of IIT-Delhi, certain immediate actions need to be taken and we seek support of the district administration in execution, read the letter.Speaking on safety measures, the letter also stated the company needs support in evacuating all five towers and restricting entry to the entire area with immediate effect. The entire area around all five towers of phase 1 and expansion joint between phase 1 and 2 should be barricaded. Also, overhead concrete water tanks will be emptied out. Use of elevators should be discontinued since their vibration at the building core can be very harmful, the letter said. The developer also said considering seriousness and urgency, the district administration should immediately get towers G and H vacated.We also published the following articles recentlyKMC to start New Mkt repairs in Jan with facade, clock tower workThe Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) plans to restore the heritage New Market next year, focusing on sustainability and long-term durability.
