A team from the Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) inspected the Supertech twin towers over Thursday and Friday. CBRI, whose help the Supreme Court had asked Noida Authority to take for the demolition process, will prepare a report on their findings and submit it in court.
The inspection comes days after Edifice Engineering, the private agency entrusted with the demolition of the two towers, wrote to the developer and sought more time for completing the task.
As of now, May 22 has been fixed as the demolition date. But Edifice and its joint-venture partner, South-Africa-based Jet Demolitions, have said they will need two months more to prepare for the demolitions on technical grounds.
Another concern hovers around the safety of the surrounding buildings during the demolition using implosion technique. Edifice has also said it will need another week to ascertain the exact quantity of explosives that will be required for the demolition.
The CBRI team, sources in the agency said, assessed the pre-demolition work and whether extra time was needed or not.
