Abstract

Precast construction technology is utilizing prefabricated concrete elements and components for creation of complete construction project. Precast construction technology is quite popular and comfortable method of construction in Western countries attributable to several advantages. However, in our country, conventional construction method is still widely accepted despite incurring higher cost and slow production rate. Here in India the perception about this type of construction is not responsive. This can be attributed to inherent reasons of acceptability traits of individuals and lack of skills to produce precast concrete elements. This paper brings out the measurement of perceptions of clients, contractors and consultants towards advantages and limitations of precast construction technology. We also studied about Government involvement in promotion of precast construction technology and willingness of construction industry key players to use precast construction components.
