Asian Heart Institute,Mumbai


Asian Heart Institute is one of India's premier cardiac care institutes located in the Bandra-Kurla complex, Mumbai. The project involved construction of 2 additional floors on top of a 5 storey building while the hospital was running at full capacity during the construction phase. The project had the restriction of an existing dead load and thus required a lightweight system for its internal partitions.

Project Highlights

The architects chose Gyproc 98mm & 123 mm Duraline drywall systems due to its light weight and severe duty rating. This allowed us to build 2 floors on Asian Heart Institute's existing structural design without any reinforcements. The construction of drywall is a clean, quick and quiet process. These crucial benefits helped us maintain the systematic functioning of the hospital without disturbing patient comfort during the construction phase.
