A group of around 15 Credai Youth Members visited Primus Eden & Mantri Energia as part of their study tour on 3rd February 2018. The goal of this endeavour was to shed light on the future of happy and relaxed living by implementing efficient construction techniques.


Primus Eden is a unique residential community for senior living. This active lifestyle senior community is situated on Kanakapura Road main road, Bangalore and is about 10 mins drive from Art of Living Center. The project is developed on about 4.5 acres land with just 75 fully furnished luxurious units specially designed for senior living.

The visit entailed a guided tour of the community by Mr. Adarsh Narahari, MD of Mantri Primus, followed by a presentation about the vision of Primus and the many small but important things that go into making a successful community of happy, relaxed & satisfied seniors. The CYW members also got a chance to interact with a few residents.

The second visit of the day was to Mantri Energia, a 2 & 3 BHK apartment complex, located next to Manyata Tech Park, to witness and understand the tunnel formwork technique.

Tunnel form is a formwork system that allows to cast walls and slabs in one operation on a daily cycle. The system creates an efficient load-bearing structure, and is most suited for repetitive cellular construction.

The visit included a presentation on the salient features and the advantages & disadvantages of the tunnel form construction. This was followed by a visit to the actual construction front where the tunnel formwork was assembled and a concrete pour was about to take place.
