Tata BlueScope Building Solutions, a business division of Tata BlueScope Steel, has won the 'PEB (Pre-engineered Building) Project of the Year' award at the Essar Steel Infrastructure Excellence Awards 2012. The award was conferred upon Tata BlueScope Building Solutions for the successful execution of the coated steel manufacturing plant of Tata BlueScope Steel at Jamshedpur. This is for the second time that Tata BlueScope Building Solutions has won the coveted PEB Project of the Year award. It had earlier won the award for the East West Gas Pipeline PEB project of Reliance Gas Transportation Infrastructure in the inaugural edition of Essar Steel Infrastructure Excellence awards in 2009.
Kamal Nath, Union Minister for Urban Development, handed over the award to Rajiv Upadhyay, vice president, Tata BlueScope Building Solutions, at the award function organised in New Delhi on May 8, 2012. Tata BlueScope Building Solutions was recognised for the successful completion of the coated steel plant project, which involved the designing, manufacturing, supplying and erection of 26 non-identical metal building structures including the tallest PEB of 42.3 metres height for metal coating line. The buildings were designed to meet the unique but diverse requirements of an integrated industrial project. The innovation in the building design, manufacturing and construction techniques reduced the risks associated and improved the overall speed of construction. The project was completed safely without any loss time accident.
On receiving the award, Mr Upadhyay said, "We feel happy for receiving the Infrastructure Excellence Award and are extremely proud to be the only PEB solutions company to have won this coveted award for the second time. This remarkable achievement thus reaffirms our superlative performance in the metal buildings industry and acknowledges our continued efforts to bring world-class PEB solutions to the Indian market."
Commenting on the coated steel plant project, he said, "The coated steel project at Jamshedpur is a good example of how tough challenges can be met easily through innovation. It highlights the suitability of pre-engineered steel buildings for diverse project requirements and their advantage over conventional methods of structural steel construction.”
