Officials said the demolition would eight months, but the duration might vary depending on numerous factors such as daily work timeframe, and available space to move heavy machines, among others

Edifice Engineering, the firm that had brought down the Supertech twin towers in Noida in a controlled explosion in August 2022, has started the demolition process of the five unsafe towers of the Chintels Paradiso housing complex in Gurugram, reported Moneycontrol, citing company sources.

The company sources said that all five unsafe towers, D, E, F, G, and H, will be razed by the mechanical demolition technique.

Meanwhile, as the demolition process has started, the flat owners have written to the deputy commissioner to direct the builder to start paying the rent for alternate accommodation to those residents who have chosen the option of reconstruction of flats at the same site.

Two women were killed when a portion of tower D of the Chintels Paradiso housing complex, located in Surugram Sector 109, collapsed in February 2022. The subsequent structural safety audit reports of IIT Delhi had concluded that towers D, E, F, G, and H of the society were “usafe to live” and recommended demolition of these towers.

DEMOLITION PROCESS, DURATION

Mayur Mehta from Edifice Engineering told Moneycontrol that things had been set in motion and demolition work had started.

“The process of demolition of towers has started at Chintels Paradiso this week. Unlike controlled implosion, these towers will be demolished by manual and mechanical method. At present we have engaged a workforce of 50 people to start the demolition activities and this number will be increased depending on the need. More machines will be engaged in future for the purpose,” Mehta was quoted as saying.

The official said the demolition would eight months, but the duration might vary depending on numerous factors such as daily work timeframe, and available space to move heavy machines, among others

After several visits by demolition consultants at the site, Edifice Engineering had suggested the mechanical and manual demolition technique, involving machines, at Chintels Paradiso instead of a controlled implosion method, which was used in the demolition of Noida’s Supertech twin towers.

This technique was suggested because residents are living in the other four towers within the society and due to the proximity to other residential buildings located near the housing complex, a company executive said.

The executive also said that the buildings are not too tall, hence the choice of razing them mechanically. Towers in Chintels Paradiso have a height ranging between 15 and 18 storeys.

According to homebuyers, currently, the agency is removing aluminum shuttering, PVC doors and panels, tiles, floors, stones, windows, and other interior elements of the flats in the towers, which are being demolished.
