Kirby India was recently awarded with the prestigious SSMB Award 2018 for the Best Industrial Building in Steel for MRF Ltd project which is the brownfield expansion of existing structure. The project consists of some unique features besides 36 m wide jack beam and installation of KSS-600 roof sheeting which required very innovative methods during installation stage which was successfully achieved by our erection team. The biggest challenge was to complete the project within stipulated time and without disturbing the existing running operations as it is brownfield expansion. Kirby completed the entire project as per the agreed timeline and handed over the building to the client to start their operations. Kirby along with client – MRF Ltd and Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) successfully celebrated over 3 lakh safe man hours which was given highest importance during the complete project cycle.
The award ceremony took place in New Delhi on 2 May 2018 and was attended by guests from leading companies in the construction, infrastructure and other segments. The jury comprised of some of the well-known industry stalwarts consisting of top honchos of corporates, consultants, structural engineers, architects, etc. in the country. Kirby was selected for this award after rigorous evaluation and series of jury meets to finalize the winner based on different criteria laid down by them. This award further demonstrates Kirby India’s leadership capabilities and distinguishes Kirby as one of the leading infrastructure companies in India, thereby enhancing its visibility to current and future customers.
This is the first time that these prestigious awards have been launched for different type of building categories that are only built in steel thereby promoting Pre-Fabricated Steel Buildings across different platforms. Kirby India was the first company who has supported the organizers - MX Business Media when they started their magazine – Steel Structures & Metal Buildings (SSMB) right from inception and have also encouraged them to start these awards thereby promoting the steel building concept across other platforms in Indian sub-continent.
