Bangalore International Exhibition Services Pvt. Ltd.       Ethos India

An opportunity for the top 10 teams to create a scaled prototype at the BuildArch, BuildUp, and BuildFloor Exhibitions being held at Bangalore on 23-26 February, 2011.

Build Arch Exhibition

What can one save?

We welcome your ideas to save anything that is of value – building cost, environment, water, power, lives, communities etc. It could even be an idea that will help mitigate the after-effects of a disaster or lower travelling distances through intelligent transportation planning. A social worker may come with a socially-relevant idea which may save space when planning settlements. So the possibilities are endless.

Over the years, simple innovations in construction have resulted in enormous savings- rat-trap masonry, soil-cement blocks, filler-slab roofing, ferrocement, frameless doors and windows, ecosan and so on. Simple ideas-contraptions that have been added or small changes in the existing system have resulted in ingenious solutions that save. This is an opportunity to let your imagination loose and present ideas to save anything that is of value-building cost, environment, water, power, lives, communities, etc.
