1.Beat the heat with GFRG in Chennai:

We all know the current scenario regarding increase in temperature in Chennai. We are in need of a technology which can reduce the heat without spending extra bucks on it.We have a solution for this.GFRG panels can keep the homes cooler up to 4 degrees than the normal building, reducing the usage of air conditioners even in summer which in turn saves electricity bill. This technology will be very useful for hot areas like Chennai. Pay less electricity bills with GFRG.

2.Resists Earthquake:

GFRG can resist earthquake even in seismic zone V. Seismic zone V is the zone which suffers the highest risk of an earthquake. Most of the metropolitan cities such as New Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta lies in Zone IV except Chennai which lies in Zone II. We, Cityrene builders get our building design from IIT-Madras, which includes earthquake design in our structures.


GFRG can withstand 1000 degree for 4 hours. That’s a big number, isn’t it?

Yes, it’s true GFRG can withstand this much heat. So even during fire accidents, the structure won’t collapse until four hours, which is a lot enough time for residents to escape and stop the fire.

4.Water resistant:

Water seepage inside houses can deteriorate the structure with time. It also causes the growth of bacteria and vegetation inside the house. These spoils the health of the residents. GFRG repels water, hence there is no problem of water seepage from walls or roofs. Even the GFRG floor slab will not bulge by releasing water, which happens in conventional construction. Even during floods with GFRG, you don’t have to worry about any water leakage problems.

water resistant gfrg5.Economical:

GFRG can save up to 30% of the total construction cost. GFRG panel costs Rs 1000 per sq.m. Who doesn’t like a house that is economical and superior to the conventional building in all ways? Buying a house that too in the entertainment corridor of Chennai, ECR at a good price with all the benefits of GFRG is not a small thing. Good things don’t stay available for long. Hurry, get yours now.

6.Eco- friendly:

Building industry alone accounts for 40% of the world’s carbon footprint. This technology can be an amazing alternative to reduce these issues. GFRG is an eco-friendly material which saves tons of cement, thereby indirectly reducing the carbon footprint.With increase in global warming situation usage of eco-friendly material becomes important.

Eco-friendly material GFRG7.Strength:

GFRG is 5X stronger than the conventional building. This can last up to 80 years without deteriorating. Conventional buildings can last only up to 50 years.

Few years back a 11 storeyed building in Moulivakkam collapsed in seconds,I think you all remember this disaster.Conventional construction methods has this inefficiencies,for which GFRG can be the best solution.

8.Rapid construction:

GFRG houses can be built faster than conventional buildings.In this current scenario on time delivery of conventional building becomes impossible.But we,Cityrene builders will deliver your home within 90 days hence you get fast return of investment.

                                 “The sooner you get your home,the lesser rent you pay”

9.Reduction in construction materials:

Sand is becoming scarce day by day,hence the material cost is getting increased vigorously.We are also depleting the natural resources in large quantity.Constructing with GFRG requires very less quantity of concrete therefore reducing the usage of concrete. Concrete is only used to fill every third cavity. Other cavities of GFRG panel is filled with any filler material such as fly ash or quarry dust thereby reducing the usage of building material to the maximum. Plastering is not required as the panels will be finished perfectly by the GFRG manufacturers.

10.More Carpet Area:

Last but not least GFRG gives you more carpet area inside the house as the thickness of GFRG panels is only 5 inches.

During summer, especially in hot places like Chennai paints in the conventional buildings will start peeling off , this won’t occur in GFRG homes.

There are other benefits less maintenance, light weight etc.

    1. Hello Jithin, there is no health hazard in using GFRG for building houses.The form of gypsum used in this panel is perfectly safe for drilling, nailing and other construction works.It has been tested and approved by USGBC,Ministry of housing development government of India ,Building materials and technology promotion council and also by Indian institute of technology.

  1. Its very good technology I seen in U tube before 2 years. But only one thing that how strong without colum in the earth.

    1. Hello sir,
      GFRG is 5X stronger than brick masonry structures. As there is no beams or columns GFRG walls acts as load bearing walls which inturn transfers the load to the foundation.There are also concealed beams kept inside the walls.

  2. I am interested in the project. I was looking for Eco friendly and cost effective construction of houses for myself. Kindly send me your phone number through my email, I would like to discuss with you.

  3. I have almost completed my house construction using gfrg ,3 floors with 9 toilets. Now within a month of fixing the toilet wall tiles it is all shaking . I was not told /builders were not aware of this. Total rework with roughen surface and new tiles will cost very high. Any body has cost saving solution please help.

    1. Tiles should be stuck using a special adhesive namely Ardex Endura. It can be found with any local water proofing or construction chemical dealers in your city. It will be a white powder and you will have to get compatible additive mixture. Both of them should cost approximately Rs.1200 and will cover area of 35-40 sq.ft. You will have to remove the tiles without being damaged, scrape off the concrete from tiles and wall. Apply this adhesive allow it to settle for 24 hours and it should solve your problem.

    1. Dear sir,
      There is no standard construction cost in GFRG, it can be determined after evaluating the floor plan and construction location only.

  4. Could you pl confirm the foundation arrangement for the buildup area of 1200 Sq.ft and the per sq.ft cost estimation to complete G+1 construction in Kadambathur. Also, you may give your contact number for further discussion.

    1. Dear sir, the foundation arrangement depends on the type of the house we are going to build and it can be decided after finalising the floor plan only. There is no standard construction cost in GFRG, it can be determined after evaluating the floor plan and construction location only. You can contact me at 9884400438 – Dilip

  5. Dear,
    Are you sure that GFRC will not be affected by outside atmosphere and climate condition like heavy rain, wind..etc

        1. GFRG buildings do not require plastering, beams or columns. So we can save money in construction, but this savings can be seen only when we go for multi storied buildings.

  6. Hi,
    I’m looking to demolish and reconstruct and was looking for some quick and cost effective solution. Let me know if this is something that you will be able to take it up. Also I would like to understand how the wiring and water pipes run inside the home in GFRG panel and in case if I have to hang some pictures can nails be used or will it damage the panel

    1. Hello Sir,
      We can take up this project. Kindly let us know the location of construction and no of floors planned. Wiring and water pipelines will be concealed inside the GFRG panels. We can drill and fix the nails. This wouldn’t do any damage to the GFRG panels. GFRG walls are 5X stronger than brick walls.

  7. I am very interested in this technology.can you please send me the upcoming projects in Chennai. I would like to have a 2/3 bedroom house.

  8. Hello sir
    We wanted to demolish our house and construct duplex house. We want 2000 sq.ft. In total buildup area in chrompet, Chennai. There is another house at back side of my house in same compound.

  13. Hello sir,
    I am an architect, planning to build low-cost housing by using gfrg, where the sqft will be less than 400. Is it applicable to build? and the construction happens in the terrace level (g+4). Site is located inside the sowcarpet, a crowded area. will it be applicable?

    1. Thanks for showing interest in us.For GFRG construction we need ample space for crane movement and panel storage. GFRG cannot be used in crowded areas like sowcarpet.
