In the heart of Thoppumpady, a bustling community in Kerala, a remarkable construction project took shape – the construction of a three-storied apartment with a plinth area of 129.80 square meters on the ground floor.
This exceptional endeavour was commissioned for Mr Mohan Varghese, a visionary property owner with a commitment to quality and timely delivery. Commencing on February 2, 2011, and culminating on December 7, 2012, the project was not only completed ahead of schedule but also set a high standard for construction excellence.
Construction of Multi-Storied Apartment
At Thoppumpady: A Testament to Quality and Efficiency
The Foundation and Structure
The foundation of this impressive building was laid upon the robust shoulders of reinforced concrete (RCC). A total of 35 450mm diameter piles and 17 RCC columns formed the backbone of the structure, ensuring stability and longevity.
Flooring and Interior Details
The attention to detail extended to the interior design. On the ground floor, the flooring was adorned with first-quality vitrified tiles, adding an elegant touch to the living spaces. The first and second floors, in turn, featured ceramic tiles, combining both aesthetics and functionality seamlessly.
In a bid to ensure safety and prevent accidents, all bathroom floors were meticulously finished with anti-skid ceramic tiles. The dado in the bathrooms was adorned with glazed tiles, adding a touch of sophistication to these essential spaces.
Finishing Touches and Water Supply
To create a polished and appealing exterior, the walls of the apartment were plastered with cement mortar in a 1:4 ratio, creating a smooth and uniform finish both inside and outside.
One of the notable features of this building was its water supply system. At ground level, a water tank with a substantial capacity of 5,000 litres was installed, ensuring an uninterrupted water supply to the residents. Overhead, an additional water tank with a capacity of 6000 litres further catered to the needs of the occupants. Both tanks were constructed using reinforced concrete (RCC), guaranteeing their durability and longevity.
Sanitary and Electrical Solutions
The quality of life within the apartment was greatly enhanced by the use of high-quality sanitary fittings from ‘Hindware.’ These fittings not only added a touch of luxury but also ensured efficiency and longevity. Complementing the sanitary fittings were water supply fittings from ‘Jaguar,’ a brand known for its reliability and performance.
The electrical wiring within the building was executed using high-grade Finolex wires, reflecting a commitment to safety and quality. Lighting was provided by Bajaj, a brand synonymous with illumination, while Crompton fans ensured comfort and ventilation throughout the apartment.
Recognizing the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility, this apartment complex also incorporated a rainwater harvesting facility, contributing to water conservation efforts in the region. This thoughtful addition demonstrated a commitment to a greener and more sustainable future.
The construction of the multi-storied apartment at Thoppumpady stands as a shining example of meticulous planning, unwavering commitment to quality, and efficient execution.
Completed well before the agreed-upon deadline, this project not only met but exceeded the expectations of Mr. Mohan Varghese. With a solid foundation, top-notch materials, and a focus on sustainability, this apartment promises a secure and comfortable living space for its residents.
It is a testament to the enduring partnership of quality brands, skilled craftsmanship, and a visionary property owner, setting a benchmark for construction excellence in the region.
