2 From the Desk of SNS Dear L&Tites, From mid-june to mid-july this year, the world held its collective breath as the Football World Cup played itself out in faraway Brazil. While there were many thrilling matches and wonderful individual performances, the German team, that finally took the Cup home, had no great individual star but performed well as a unit. They played to a clearly defined strategy that was tweaked depending on the nature of the opposition and implemented perfectly by the players who clearly understood and supported each other, were well mindful of their limitations and always played to their strength. We have also done well as a unit. Our customer revenue for the year ended March 31, 2014 reflects a healthy year-on-year growth of 23%. This performance is on the back of some good work that we have done over the past few months across ICs. In B&F, the Mumbai airport is a great entry point and city infrastructure. The residential tower in Bhoiwada, Mumbai is a first for precast. Overseas, we are fast approaching completion of the Salalah Airport project in Oman. The flagging off of India s first Monorail project in Mumbai was thanks to our expertise in the TI IC. We have also completed the Sheikh Khalifa Interchange between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. In the HC IC, the mounting of the full ring For progress we have to covert these opportunities that we have created to our benefit by completing the many projects that we have in hand well before scheduled deadlines, exceeding quality expectations, improving safety standards and, more importantly, realizing our profitability. Each one of us has to be conscious about our bottom line and profit margins. That is vital even when we are pitching for new businesses because volumes are not going to win us the day, profitability will. liner at the Kakrapar Atomic Power plant was an example of some very good engineering. Adding to our list of achievements, W&RE IC is carrying out the design and construction of a waste water treatment plant at Doha, incorporating Sequential Batch Reactor technology (92 MLD) with Ultra Filtration (187 MLD), which is fast nearing completion. The PT&D IC erected India s tallest communication tower on a singlepillar. The construction of the 800 kv EHV transmission line between Nidhura and Agra was also completed. Our order book at the end of June 2014 is healthy. We need satisfied clients who should be our ambassadors for getting fresh business. That means faster progress and delivery. For progress we have to covert these opportunities that we have created to our benefit by completing the many projects that we have in hand well before scheduled deadlines, exceeding quality expectations, improving safety standards and, more importantly, realizing our profitability. Each one of us has to be conscious about our bottom line and profit margins. That is vital even when we are pitching for new businesses because volumes are not going to win us the day, profitability will. We need to get back to basics. Our core activities in the bulk of our work 2 ECC News, April - June 2014

3 are Concrete, Shuttering and Reinforcement (CSR). We have to do this fast, within the cost tendered and need to do it well. The cost due to using different systems, nonproductive labour and daily paid labour is not under control. We need to look into this seriously and see how to keep our feet on the ground on these costs. This is the key to progress, delivery and profitability. While it is natural to feel good so far, it also helps to study and understand why we lost out on a few projects along the way. A lot can be learnt from failures and I assure you that time taken to analyze our misses is well-spent because it will save us from repeating those same mistakes in future. There is a ground swell of positive sentiments in the wake of the national elections and the formation of the new government. There is great expectation that the infrastructure sector will get a fillip and industry awaits the kick-start of stalled projects and the announcement of new ones. We are well-placed to take advantage of this rising tide but need to be smart and focused to succeed. The steps we have taken to establish our presence in the Middle East is starting to bear fruit reflected in the slew of prestigious orders we have bagged in recent months: for the construction of a road between Bidbid-Sur Section (2nd Phase, 1st Part), for the design and construction of the Al Wakrah Bypass Road (P015), for the design There is great expectation that the infrastructure sector will get a fillip and industry awaits the kick-start of stalled projects and the announcement of new ones. We are well-placed to take advantage of this rising tide but need to be smart and focused to succeed and construction of the Gold Line of the Doha Metro project in Qatar and the prestigious Riyadh Metro project and construction of a waste water treatment facility at Al-Shamal. These come with multiple challenges of contending with new markets, new operating conditions, meeting new expectations, working with new partners and a multi-cultural workforce and achieving entirely new quality and safety standards but I am confident that we will be able to script a success story. At this point, I cannot stop stressing upon the need to continue our focus on Safety as we aggressively seek new businesses. In recent times, our safety track record has been disturbing. The thousands of workers and their dependents across our sites are as much our responsibility as our own employees and that puts a huge responsibility on all of us. I hope each one of you realizes this and act accordingly. In conclusion, as they say something well begun is already half done: the year has started well but we have to keep up the momentum if we are to finish stronger than we did in All the best! S.N.

In a short span of time, our committed professionals seamlessly integrated the expansion of the airport terminal amidst 24/7 operations. Each of the personalities featured here gives us an insight on the art of executing to perfection a challenging Brownfield project.

19 flowing dynamic roof span, build ancillary buildings, create 7000 sq.m of retail spaces, put up 8 new aerobridges, 33 new check in counters, 6 travelators with 280 m of assisted internal horizontal travel. All of this without disrupting live airport operations and ensuring complete safety to passengers. SG feels that the success at BIAL can be attributed to the use of in-house 3D Building Information Modelling which helped the team to generate clash free construction schemes for various works. BIAL (Phase 1) was the rise of a new dawn for L&T because its successful completion established the Company s credentials as a name to reckon with in the construction of aviation infrastructure. DIAL, MIAL and BIAL (Phase 2) have, according to Mr. Sanjeev Gupta (SG), Project Director, reaffirmed L&T s capability and proficiency as India s foremost builder of airports. Apart from having to construct in the middle of a fully functioning airport, the scope of work for BIAL (Phase 2) was daunting. We had to upgrade the existing terminal facility from 10.6 MPPA to 17.2 MPPA with the construction of over 80,000 sq.m of built up area, reveals SG, etching out the contours of his mandate. We had to enhance the free Throwing light on some of the major works executed at site, SG says, To speed up execution, we used prefabricated and preassembled structural components to the maximum extent possible especially for the unique double curved roof and erected them in-situ directly for final alignment. We successfully carried out one of the heaviest lifts in construction with the removal of the south side roof element each weighing 110 t and removed 72 precast side walls each weighing 25.8 t in a sequentially phased manner. We also erected the largest fixed link bridge structure for Aircraft A380 weighing 108 t in just two days. We are proud of the fact that the site clocked 23 million safe man-hours and achieved a no incident report across a span of two years, he beams. SG has close to three decades of experience in handling major core sector projects, has been with L&T for two of them and has been at the helm of many significant assignments. BIAL is his second airport project following DIAL. His wife Monika is a post graduate in Botany and a homemaker. The couple has a daughter, Surabhi who is pursuing graduation in law. A powerful finish decides the outcome of all contests asserts Mr. S. Virapan (SVn), Task Force Leader Finishes. Steering the finishes work at BIAL was similar to running a relay race. The onus was on the teams to synchronize work fronts, consolidate on the momentum gained and emerge as a winner. BIAL was a combination of many intricacies says SVn. The scope involved wet and dry finishes and various interior packages. Since huge volumes of civil finishing works had to be executed within the shortest duration, the challenge was to speed up the works through mechanization. The team came up with many innovative methods to facilitate execution such as the use of tele-handler equipment for material shifting, enabling parallel work fronts, setting up of approval protocols for shop drawings, material selection and arranging of mockup inspections. The biggest factor was that the airport was fully operational and we had to deliver finishes to world class standards within a limited time and space frame. The major structures such as exclusive VIP lounge, PTB (West, East side and pier) and utility buildings were delivered on time. Handling key portfolios in design and operations, SVn, in a two decade career with L&T, has donned many a versatile role. His forte is in PHE/FPS design, contract management of tenders, project management of finishes and interiors. A team man, SVn believes in empowering people to maximise on deliverables. A keen sportsman, SVn is adept in playing more than a handful of games and has won laurels in cricket, shuttle and table tennis. His wife Sudha is a school teacher. The SVns are blessed with two children Yogalakshmi and Surendran Bala who are in Class XI and VII respectively. ECC News, April - June

20 build around the existing terminal. The process was highly challenging and called for a host of innovations at the ground level. The end result was that the team constructed, tested and commissioned one of the finest MEP installations in the country and the efforts have been highly appreciated by the client and the public as well. The icing on the cake was when the installation secured the LEED Gold rating with full score for MEP works. Pointing out the nuances at work, Madhu highlights: A great deal of perfection among the services coordination was achieved through Building Information Modelling. The advanced tool enabled us to carry out modelling and clash analysis using Nevis software which helped in restricting the rework, achieving greater maintenance access and aesthetics. How do you go about a job wherein the essential services need to be extended without any interruption asks Mr. A.P. Madhu Soodanan, Head MEP and Airport Systems. He affirms: MEP works were all about engineering integration across all fronts. Madhu jocularly asks, Can passengers be put to test? The livewire that runs the airport is the MEP service which encompasses air-conditioning, electrical, plumbing and associated systems. We had to devise a 360 degree plan and This seasoned professional has a keen insight about men. He elucidates: For success at any level in life, it is necessary to understand people and their capacities to the fullest. This has been my greatest strength over the years and has provided me helping hands whenever the situation demanded. Madhu s better half Anjaly is a teacher who in addition to her educating skills evinces keen interest in fashion designing. The couple has a son, Bharath who is in Class XII. As a family, the trio love to travel. Madhu is a socially conscious person who does his bit for the society by associating with NGOs. A sweet double innings at BIAL is a rare honour and I m fortunate to have been part of the team that set the trend and set new benchmarks declares Mr. G.E. Vasantha Kumar (GEVK). Eight years ago, I set foot upon a vast stretch of barren land to put up the infrastructure works at BIAL Phase I. The scope included constructing buildings, precast compound walls, ancillary structures, ATC tower, precast roof elements, casting and erection. While the early days posed innumerable challenges typical to that of a Greenfield assignment, Phase II was more critical as we had to execute within a functional airport. The challenge was of a tall order which had to be scaled amidst the free flow of passengers. To hold firm, we consolidated on the lifting schemes and work method statements to carry out critical works. The existing fixed linked bridges at the eastern PTB needed to be modified to allow the construction of the extension works that would connect the buildings together. To connect the new western and eastern PTB extensions to the existing PTB, it was necessary to remove the 72 existing concrete precast wall panels each weighing 30 t off the operating PTB. One of the most critical works was the removal of the existing southern roof precast S element to enable structural steel roof erection. The removal of each of the 9 roof precast S-elements which was 9mx24m in size and weighing over 110 t each was done with great precision and care. The pursuit of excellence at BIAL has been a fulfilling one acclaims GEVK. The distinctions are many: completion of the erection works and Trumphet flyover in phase I well ahead of the schedule which earned the client s appreciation and the evolution of a comprehensive airport construction professional. GEVK s wife Asha is a graduate and a homemaker. The couple has a son Ajit who is pursuing his engineering at Manipal Institute of Technology. 20 ECC News, April - June 2014

21 The task at hand was a full-fledged offering which tested my strengths to the fullest, exclaims Jagadish. Contract management, construction methods planning cell, fabrication and erection of roof elements of the terminal building were the main courses. A combination of on and off field works enabled me to customize and settle down in a quick span of time. Safety and quality were vital factors to take cognisance of considering passenger and air traffic movement. Dismantling the precast partition wall elements measuring 3 meters in width, 30 meters in height and 300 mm in thickness was a critical task. The roofing expansion works were the most challenging. Precast roof elements weighing close to 110 t with 7 m width and 24 m span had to be dismantled with utmost care. This was achieved by using high capacity cranes with a well-designed lifting arrangement that was completed in 45 days period. Do you see a common link between an airport and a nuclear reactor asks Mr. Jagadish? As one speculates on the weird possibilities, he quickly indicates: Two decades in a nuclear plant and a debut in L&T at BIAL gives me this unique insight. An airport is as important as a reactor and is probably more critical as it involves public interface at many levels. Jagadish elaborates, Erection methodology planned for various lifts was finely detailed. In the case of passenger bridges, which measured 25 m in length, 3 m in width and 3 m in height, the lifting was planned and executed as a single unit. For reinforcement of rods, butt welding was done as reinforcement rods in the existing terminal building were not long enough to allow lapping. A mockup process was presented to the client to highlight the effectiveness of the process. ASME Sec-III Div-2 was adopted along with radiography tests for qualification of the welded joints. On the family front, Jagadish is ably supported by his wife. EPCM projects from inception to completion. At BIAL it was only about making headway without interrupting the airport s strict and specific 24/7 operations and security requirements. Project construction scheduling, sequencing and methodologies were tailor made to the constraints set out by the airport operator and the client, BIAL. A continuous dialogue was maintained between all parties to ensure successful delivery of works with minimum operational and security impacts. To me, successful project management is all about macro leadership and micro management. There are two essentials organising and planning. The plan has to be broken down into units to monitor and progress. Once planned, you should look at who can execute, says Mr. Darius A. Olczak, Head Project Controls. A native of Poland, Darius brings to L&T a professional expertise of over 26 years in major multi-disciplinary aviation, civil, hydrocarbon and mining projects from around the globe. His obvious strengths are strategic planning, design management, project cost and time controls, contractual administration, supervising and managing EPC/ Darius explains: Setting up the project control systems was the foremost task which when finalised provided assistance and inputs to the design, construction methodology and preparation of the Operational Readiness Process for the project. We established two document control systems, ACONEX and a job specific system, numerous detailed method statements to meet the tight demands of the fasttrack project. Darius highlights some of the major challenges mitigated at site. Interfacing with the existing operating terminal building, maintaining security at all times on the landside to airside boundaries, removal of heavy precast concrete panels which included 30t end walls, 120t S-shaped roof sections over public areas and the development of the main structural steel roof erection sequences to meet construction tolerances and maintain normal operations in terminal operational areas. Darius s family includes his wife Connie, children Benjamin, Jacqueline, Cassandra, Grace and pet dog Riley. Walking and visiting places of interest are his prime hobbies. ECC News, April - June

22 The project demanded fool proof interfacing with the existing services to enable air and land side operations explains AK. The planning team was the nodal agency entrusted with the task of coordinating and synchronizing all the activities across various work fronts that included resource management, monitoring consumption of bulk materials, procurement of materials, ACE preparation, cost control, achieving sales and PBIT targets and setting up of systems and procedures. After a thorough analysis of the existing services, a plan of action was charted for taking up the works. From the onset of the project, work front activities were aligned to the airport operations by coordinating with the BIAL and CISF teams. To meet the operational and aviation security requirements, temporary facilities were set up based on fixed time permits to access secure ways and security hoardings were installed at vital boundaries. Speaking on the executional challenges, AK highlights: During execution, we encountered hard rock adjacent to the apron area which needed to be deftly disintegrated due to the proximity of parked aircrafts. Following a thorough discussion with the client, we went ahead to remove the rock with breaker-attached excavators and controlled chemical blasting (Cardox) that is soundless and does not damage adjacent structures. The total quantity of hard rock excavated was 4675 cum. Another innovation deployed was the use of weathered rock for sand filling. Other critical heavy lift works executed included removal of south side roof elements weighing around 110 t and dismantling 72 precast side walls each weighing 25.8 t. In a career spanning over 27 years, AK has handled multidisciplinary core sector projects. AK s family includes his wife Nithya who is a homemaker and daughter Priyadarshini who is in Class IV. Listening to music and reading books are his prime hobbies. To plan and execute the expansion works right in the middle of a fully functional airport with a passenger movement of close to 50,000 on a daily basis called for a lot of precision planning and Mr. A. Kannan (AK), Senior Planning Manager is proud to have managed it all very well. After speeding down roads and spanning bridges, Mr. B.C. Monnappa s (BCM) s career is now on the runway to even greater success. From a hard core roads and bridges specialist, he has evolved into a holistic infrastructure engineering professional and BIAL is the latest feather in his already crowded cap. After DIAL, BIAL was BCM s second consecutive airport project that came with the huge challenge of constructing in the midst of a fully functional airport. Describing the scope of his job, BCM explains: Apart from airside, landside and other critical works, the scope included drainage, air ground lighting, constructing the PQC pavement, asphalt pavement, fuel line extension and raising the perimeter wall. The numbers reflect the quantum of work: 42,000 sq.m of PQC, 14,500 sq.m of asphalting, 450 m of apron drain works, 650 m of precast perimeter wall construction, installing of an oil water separator, setting up of a 6m high jet blast fencing for a length of 90 m and laying of fuel line extensions for 210 m through hot tapping. Another of the challenges for BCM was that since the quantities were moderate, he could not opt for a fully mechanized mode of operation so We planned to source the asphalt from a plant located 50 km away and hired the essential machinery and completed the works in a month s time. Executing the design of the airside works had its own set of challenges as it was conceptualized in Mumbai and the onus was on us to align the design to the modifications at BIAL. BCM s life partner Ashwini, armed with a Master s in English Literature, B.Ed in Hindi, is a teacher and efficiently manages both school and home. Their daughter, Deepshikha is in Class VI and son Nirosh is in UKG. 22 ECC News, April - June 2014

23 execution to progress and in a short span of six months, our team was able to chart out the basement plans. BS continues proudly, I can vouch that BIAL has one of the best detailed service areas among the modern airports in India. For BS, safety is another imperative and being a brownfield project, it was vital to avoid any kind of operational disturbances. For the entire roof steel structure we opted for bolting methodology instead of welding. Truss lengths and weights were optimized so that the construction was done from land-side with minimum disturbance to the air side front. The translation of a design on paper to a structure in cement and concrete is the biggest of all challenges. It has to be true to the designer s dream and, at the same time, functionally efficient and the task of bridging the gaps falls on people like Mr. Bellana Sirish (BS), Head Design. While a lot has been said and written about the visible grandeur of the Bengaluru International Airport, not enough light has been thrown on some critical work that was done below the ground. The revamping of the basements was a critical task, observes BS. Almost all the service rooms are located in the basement and hence it was imperative to realign the layouts according to the expansion plans. Being a high priority job, we quickly generated work fronts for The uniqueness of this assignment was that majority of the systems needed to be complied with the existing setup. In many cases, local technology was up-graded while some systems were completely replaced. The roof work was the most critical task as it required working out the slopes to channelize water movement. For this, we resorted to lifting the roof locally without comprising on the visual aesthetics, an initiative that won accolades from the client. BIAL is also the first airport project executed by L&T in Building Information Modelling. Certainly, BS has many reasons to feel very proud of his and his team s achievements. BS holds a double gold medal in B.E and M.Tech and says, The last 17 years at L&T have been very fulfilling and have enabled me to evolve into a holistic professional with the international exposure adding a lot of value to my domain skills. BS s wife Swathi is a graduate and homemaker while their two children, Sowkya and Somwya, are in Class III and Pre- Kg respectively. Architecture is all about casting and recasting till you achieve excellence in operation. DIAL and BIAL Extension works are two distinct projects where I had a lead role in giving shape to the grand vision and, looking back I can proudly say that success is assured when the problems are seen in positive light, asserts Mr. Basak Architectural Lead. This looked a rather rudimentary task when I set foot at BIAL. The joy was short-lived when I saw the updated and revised drawing schemes. The schemes were finalized after an extensive tendering process jointly with BIAL. As per the tender requirement of interiors, we had to start from the conceptual stage for redesigning the areas. The designs had the onus of regrouping the other services and system designs to align to the new schemes. The whole process was like redoing a jigsaw puzzle. Technology was our savior exclaims Basak, The crucial decision of having an in-house 3D modeling BIM team for coordinating all services paid rich dividends in avoiding rework. We took a strategic call to execute all MEP works internally. The fact that all shop drawings was taken up by team L&T enabled the speed up of the works. By 2012, I was entrusted with the mantle of taking through the architectural requirements. The most intricate scheme was the freeflowing dynamic roof design having a false ceiling with 3 dimensional curvilinear profile as the roof soffit and extending as the curved bulkheads with imposing continuous bullnoses. In a retrospective mood before moving out to the next assignment, Basak says: The good work of the design team was acknowledged during the walkthrough by all. The green building Gold certification is a testimony to a great job done. Basak warmly relates, I have a supporting wife Soma and son, Arnab, is in Class VIII. We usually move out for sightseeings during holidays and I like to cook or read to relax. ECC News, April - June

26 international benchmarking is of a very high order, he explains, and one needs to have an insight on effective project management to meet the schedules. The rigours I faced at such assignments stood me in good stead while executing the expansion works at BIAL. Mr. A. Subramanian (ASN), Deputy General Manager (Civil) was faced with the onerous task of delivering targets within the framework of a functional airport. Following the maxim of One team, one dream, he and his team were able to achieve several milestones at BIAL. Having dedicated a large part of his three decade career to L&T, AS brings with him a wealth of experience of having handled mega building projects in the Gulf like National Pharmaceuticals in Oman, the Al Muraj complex, the Dynatrade factory in Dubai, Mughal Gardens, Dubai Academic City, Residential Villas in Sports City, the Jumeriah Lake Towers and Sheikh Khalifa Interchange. The ASN s scope was an ever evolving one: beginning with internal modification, finishing and moving on to key structures and thence finalisation of the project. Highlighting on some of the major challenges at work, AS says, Most of the airside and PTB works were taken up during airport operations and required stringent monitoring of safety measures. The erection of sandwich panels between the existing terminal and the proposed extension span was a critical activity. Further, for the expansion of the roof works, we had to remove 72 precast panels of 25 m length weighing close to 25 tonnes. At a single location, multiple activities such as 4000 sq.m of granite flooring, 6000 sq.m of high ceiling works, fixing 33 boarding counters were undertaken in a seamless manner. AS asserts, The handing over of the back house and service area before the completion of the terminal to CSIF was one of the milestones achieved in the project which was highly appreciated by the client. ASN wife, Vimala, is a physics graduate and a homemaker. Their son, Saprasath is pursuing Engineering in Chennai. AS believes that the credo of working together as a team is the way forward in achieving success at such large scale integrated projects. Watching a game of cricket or playing carrom is AS s way of unwinding. After the successful restructuring of the Construction Equipment Maintenance Cell at Kancheepuram as the P&M leader, PRC was entrusted with the BIAL Expansion project that involved the complete mechanization of the construction activity to facilitate high speed execution. Describing the magnitude of his task, PRC explains, We had an eclectic fleet of machinery comprising a batching plant, 3 tower cranes, 2 truck-mounted boom placers and a variety of material handling equipment such as heavy duty cranes ranging from 120 t to 500t and 35 boom lifts for elevated finishing activities. To get the machines up and running in the shortest possible time was perhaps the biggest challenge, says PRC, but we had a lean, mean team of 12, ably supported by 120 workmen, who formed the core P&M unit and on whom rested the onus of manning close to 100 equipment. Micro planning was the need of the hour as we had to ensure that the equipment productivity was maximised and downtime minimized as much as possible. My team was always at hand to assess troubleshooting and provide immediate solutions, says PRC, lauding his team s concerted effort. It was great to see all the 35 boom lifts and cranes work in tandem across the various structural erection and finishing activities. It was akin to a fully automated construction process and seemed like the entire ceiling had access to the ground level. About the innovations at site, PRC mentions the conversion kit devised for the bitumen sprayer that accelerated the paving activity for internal logistics. PRC attributes his professional achievements to his support system which is his family that includes his father, wife Shanti, and son Prashanth who is pursuing higher secondary education at Chennai. Managing men and machinery is often considered an art because both can be extremely unpredictable. Going by his track record at some challenging international projects and at BIAL, Mr. P. Ravichandran (PRC), DGM Plant & Machinery, can be considered as having mastered this art and fine-tuned it to a science. 26 ECC News, April - June 2014

27 Every morning, Mr. Pranab Krishna De (PKD), Construction Manager, awoke to the realization that the day would bring with it new challenges and issues and every morning he prayed and hoped that he would be able to face those impending challenges fairly and squarely; solve those issues effectively. Today, when he looks at BIAL, standing tall and splendid, he can rest assured that all his prayers have been answered; all his hopes fulfilled. PKD s affair with BIAL began in April 2011, when he was entrusted with the task of charting out the execution plan for the west expansion and building works. Later, he was given the responsibility to take up the east expansion, pier and ceiling works. Being a Brownfield site, the biggest challenge was that we were building in the middle of a fully functional airport, recalls PKD, and the task was even tougher because we were dealing with very heavy structures and working at heights. He was referring to the task of fabricating and erecting four new fixed bridges varying in lengths from 24 to 36 meters and weighing anywhere between 32 to 120 tonnes. Such mega structures had to be moved with utmost safety and erected with precision. Further, the double curved ceiling roof work was being done at heights ranging from 6 to 32 meters, says PKD wiping his brow but smiles: We successfully completed 60,000 sq.m. of ceiling works with boom lifts. According to PKD, the technique adopted to dismantle end wall concrete panels weighing close to 25 tonnes and rising to 16 m in height was the real highlight of the project. There were also excavations and dismantling of old structures to reinforce the foundation and basements at both ends of the terminal buildings. In a career of close to a decade with L&T, PKD has thus far handled major infrastructure projects including the UP road and the benchmark DIAL project. DIAL was a unique experience wherein I was associated with a range of works for runways, taxiways, aprons which also included the tunnel works for connecting the domestic terminal with T3. BIAL is certainly another illustrious success story in my domain, he concludes. PKD s family consists of his wife Ruprani, who is a postgraduate in Mathematics and a homemaker. The couple has a daughter Nilanjana who is in class III. Visiting tourist places as a family is their collective joy. 5,000 workmen. 350 employees. Certification of Rs. 980 crores worth of invoicing with 100% TDS certification. Rs crores of tax credit availed. 10 million safe man-hours. The numbers are quite mind-boggling but so were the expectations from the accounts and administration team, says Mr. Gade Ramakrishna (GRK), Manager Accounts & Administration. After having been with L&T for almost two decades handling the IR and administration functions across project sites predominantly in northern India, GRK crossed over the Vindhyas and was promptly given the huge responsibility of managing the BIAL project. Being one of India s prime airports, there was always huge passenger footfall, security was extremely strict inside the airport and so we needed to plan, avail permits and continuously monitor the movement of our men and material right from the onset of works, says GRK explaining the complexity of his job. The onus on the IR team was to ensure that all systems and statutory compliances were met. A dedicated team was formed to ensure that work related permits were processed and enabled as soon as possible so that execution was not hindered. All essential services for employees and workmen had to be arranged in the shortest possible time frame. Adhering to IR compliances and fulfilling the needs of employee and workmen are critical. IR is a very regional, and sometimes even localized function and it is imperative to understand regional and local nuances to succeed, explains GRK, quickly adding, However, my stints across regions have enabled me to develop a 360 degree IR insight. At the site, as part of CSR programmes, health screening, blood donation camps, recreational events were organised, aiding communities in the vicinity in a timely manner. GRK is married to Renuka, a B.A. B.Ed and a teacher and they are blessed with two daughters, Pratyusha and Prasharsha who are pursuing B.Tech and intercollege respectively and aspire to join the Civil Services.

34 Googling through I LOVE CYCLING screamed the text on the T-shirt of a cyclist with some nondescript text below that read, How else can a 40 year old wear Lycra? While this is just one of the lighter reasons why people are taking increasingly to cycling, there are other extremely gratifying reasons from the health and environ points of view too. For the small group of cyclists at L&T, however, it has been a matter of clocking new distances and exploring newer territories. Come weekends, this group conscientiously gather in the wee hours of the morning to begin pedalling though new areas, creating new routes that they unfailingly upload online for the benefit of the city s cycling fraternity. It all began with Gopi Kannan and Santhanagopalan, (Sango for short), riding distances of just 10 to 20 kilometers over weekends. We quite undauntedly set off on rides not bothering about having a puncture or a repair kit with us reminisces Sango. We even pulled off an 86 km ride starting at 3.30 am in the morning and hadn t the slightest idea what we would have done if we had got stranded laughs Gopi Kannan. Things took on a slightly more professional perspective with the young Aswin joining the spree. Right from talking about lofty aims of partaking in cycling brevets (long distance endurance rides that run to hundreds of kilometers) to turning around the team to invest in professional bikes (read cycles) and accessories (read a lot of it!), Aswin revolutionised the way the team cycled. The addition of Rajataditya, Amitabh and Dinesh gave the group a breath of youthfulness and thereafter the rides got longer and the team started pushing harder. What I love most is the idea of exploring new areas while cycling, feels Amitabh. I find the whole world slowing down from its maddening pace of week days during the weekend rides, observes Rajat and I am doing this for the fitness feel good factor, quips Dinesh. I pedal every day to work and feel it is just a small way through which I can contribute to reducing my carbon footprint, adds Aswin. Whatever the individual reasons, the group never failed to meet practically every weekend over the past year and keep pedalling to areas as far as Cholavaram, Mahabalipuram and once even all the way to Vedanthangal clocking a 160 km in a single day! The longest ride status however, is obviously held by Aswin who recently did a 400 km brevet in 26 hours braving heavy head winds including a ride up the steep Javadhu hills. Aswin was among the 39 elite who could complete the ride out of 62 aspirants. There s more to cycling than that meets the eye. The appetite created is incredible making the gang wolf down anything and everything available 34 ECC April - June 2014

35 en route. Of course, there are also instances when the team lands up in the more upscale Bhavans of Chennai, only to get several curious glances along with sumptuous platters. The mandate however, for long distance rides, is to keep oneself as hydrated as possible. Therefore ample amounts of tender coconut, juices and other beverages are consumed during the periodic breaks that are integrated in to the ride plan. The short and long of it is that L&T s cyclists simply love the motivation they spread about cycling being a green mode of transportation. It s not just the children who gather around to gawk at the astonishing cycle gears and accessories, but also grown-ups who post several enquiries followed by a strong urge to take up to cycling immediately. The team hopes to motivate other colleagues at the campus and make Googling through Cycling a fun activity that simply cannot be missed over the weekends! ECC News, April - June

36 A Tale of Grit Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the facts said Albert Einstein, and for Aravind Kumar, a young HR professional from B&F IC, the pursuit of big dreams means setting benchmarks in long distance running. Beginning with the WIPRO marathon, Aravind joined a team of 60 L&T-ites and emerged as the only L&T-ite to complete the gruelling 42.2 Km run. From then on, there has been no looking back for Aravind as he successfully competed in major marathons. For the past eight months, Aravind has been training intensely, running between 80 km and 100 km a week for the race of his life the Comrades Marathon. The run is an ultramarathon of approximately km (approx. 56 miles) which is run annually in the KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa between the cities of Durban and Pietermaritzburg. It is the world s largest and oldest ultramarathon race. Runners over 20 years qualify when they are able to complete an officially recognized marathon (42.2 km) in under five hours. During the event, the runner must also reach five cut-off points in specified times to complete the race. Comrades 2014 On June 1, 2014, Aravind competed in this international run held in South Africa where he achieved the amazing feat of becoming the youngest Indian to complete the run (89.28 km) in 11 hrs 42 mins (max time allowed is 12 hrs) on his very first attempt. Comrades 2014 What an emotional day. Fantastic experience. Sprained my adductors at 30km and the finish went down the drain. 2nd half was painful throughout. Wearing the Indian t-shirt was a blessing in disguise. The crowd kept shouting, Go INDIA constantly says Aravind on reaching the pinnacle of glory. Back home, Aravind was felicitated at HQ with mementoes presented to him by Mr. S.N. Subrahmanyan, Member of the Board and Senior Executive Vice President, Mr. M.V Satish Senior VP & Head, B&F IC, Mr. K. Kannan VP & Head CBA SBG and Mr. N. Dharmarajan VP & Head-HR. He was also presented the PRAISE award in recognition of this outstanding feat. Aravind has now become the talk of the Chennai running community. Needless to mention, he is definitely an inspiration for the younger generation. We wish this journey continues and many such milestone victories comes his way!! Kudos!! 36 ECC April - June 2014

37 Adventuring Roopkund and Bedni Bugyal to the serene crystal-clear waters of river Neel Ganga at Wan, deep virgin oak forest at Tolpani, breath-taking campsites and the snow avalanches we experienced the fury and the glory of nature. We also came across villagers living in such terrains and saw the hardships they encountered. Sourav quips: Trekking came to me naturally from the early years as my father was a trekker and guided me to evolve in this adventure sport. These trails have not only made me a stronger, independent and confident person but has also helped to becoming a team player and face tougher challenges in life and at work. Pursuing a dream and living it to the fullest is akin to a Eureka feel the joy is untold and manifold. For Sourav Majumder Indirect Taxes - KKRO, the quest for a tryst with Mother Nature at the pristine peak of Roopkund was a dream that constantly kept ticking Keep Trekking. The cherished moment came true when I joined hands with a team of nine trekkers to cover a distance of 57.5 Km. The journey from the East to the Garhwal ranges in the Himalayas was not an easy climb. The hikers had to be extremely fit both mentally and physically to scale the steep heights, recounts Sourav. Speaking on the ascent, Sourav points out, From the flower sprinkled twin meadows at Ali Bugyal This insightful paperback has a powerful foreword by our Honourable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi: The book aims to spark change in the life of readers and with its easy-toread format, neat presentation and attractive content, it succeeds in many regards. I am confident that this book will instil a can-do mentality amongst its readers and inspire them to reach greater heights in life. Developing A Can-Do-Attitude Charting the plot for a Can-Do Attitude is a challenging task. But for Jayapriya, the chirpy HR professional from Heavy Civil IC, it was a conscious insight to help people that provided the impetus to pen her first book From Crippling Emotions to Can-Do Attitude! In a casual chat with ECC NEWS, Jayapriya relates: It s an emotional first-aid book that addresses countering negativity through simple instructions. The list of usually experienced unhappy emotions is provided in the contents; just go to the page, for a malady that is afflicting you, and find simple, yet effective steps that will help alleviate your suffering. On the illustrious foreword, Jayapriya exclaims: I wanted a strong leader representing vision and energy to make the book visible and reach out across the society. The efficient bureaucracy of the Gujarat Government took forward my requisition and what is now in print is perhaps a one-of-its-kind foreword penned by Mr. Narendra Modi. ECC News, April - June

46 Rise and Shine! Working with enthusiasm More than talent, more than intelligence, taking the same status for success as hard work, is enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is important, even essential and imperative, for well-founded success. The magic of enthusiasm is, it is like a lamp. A lamp can give light, as well as light a 100 other lamps. Enthusiasm, like all leadership skills, can be spread to and shared with many, making the days and lives of people much more energetic, much more vibrant. It might be difficult to stay enthusiastic about work on a Monday morning But, without enthusiasm, work will get tougher and results slower. Enthusiasm thus is a key performance value. So, what is enthusiasm, and how do we develop it? Enthusiasm is interest ignited. Interest is passive, enthusiasm is active. It has a kinetic energy to it. Enthusiasm is not just a feeling, it is behaviour too. It shows in the way we talk, walk, in our stride, in our speech. To keep enthusiasm alive, we must develop high fondness, a robust interest towards our work. There must be curiousity and eagerness. Also plan and organize your work into easy-to-complete units so that the chore doesn t overwhelm or tire you. Take mini-breaks to rejuvenate yourself. Stay self-motivated by reading/remembering powerful quotes of eminent people. Work is a necessary aspect of life. Doing this with zeal and enthusiasm, will make work not just easy, but very effective too!
