Ltd - has shot into in the Guinness World
Records for designing and
Constructing a Satsang Hall within the
Govind Devji’s Temple in Jaipur, this has
reinforced concrete cement (RCC) flat roof
with a single span of 119 feet
“If Dubai has Burj Al Hotel – the world’s
tallest tower – India now has Govind Devji’s
Satsang Hall in Jaipur, the world’s widest
concrete building,” says Deepak Sogani, CEO,
NMRD Ltd, the structural consultants and
contractors for this project.
The 15,800 sq feet pillarless Satsang Hall
can seat 5,000 devotees at any given time.
“We faced several engineering challenges
while designing a structure of this size.
Given the large width of the hall and the
requirement of constructing a flat, usable
roof, the only structure that could work was
a grid slab. A grid or waffle slab is an RCC
roof constructed employing a criss-cross
square grid of deep ribs,” he said.
