Corporate Quality Head (PQM & CSG)
Arid, bleak, brown, flat, grey, very sombre and vapid is most likely the repute that concrete has amongst us but it really has more value that what meets the eye! Produced at an estimated rate of five billion cubic yards per year, concrete is the second most widely consumed substance on this planet, superseded only by water. However, it is easily taken for granted as the stuff of sidewalks, roads and utilitarian structures.
We, at Foundations: The Ambuja Knowledge Centre, believe that the art and science of building is greatly affected by the development of materials. When understood and applied, the inherent qualities of concrete can lead to distinguished expressions in architecture, as it combines fundamental and highly desirable qualities making it an excellent building material.
We trust concrete’s capabilities are outstanding to the extent that amongst all building materials, concrete alone can be used for versatile applications in architecture—from regular to eccentric designs.
Our ambition through this website – Foundations, is to create a holistic resource basin on cement and concrete. This aim stems from Ambuja’s belief in the continuous evolution of architecture, engineering and the construction industries, thereby offering its professionals varied platforms of information, inspirations and interactions. Its interactive resource will also aim to function as an experience centre that promotes and offers solutions for cement and concrete applications. It is through this humble initiative that a new facet of concrete can be brought to light. Where the material becomes design and design is essentially, the material.
We welcome you to be a part of our initiative.
