Addressing the officer trainees, Mukherjee said that the government has set a deadline for providing a roof to everyone in India by 2022.
This ambitious infrastructure development program provides enormous growth opportunity for CPWD. The principle challenge they will face is how to deliver top quality built environment in the shortest possible time and at the lowest cost. This calls for both technical and managerial leadership. They, as young officers and engineers must focus particularly on those areas where innovation and modernization are required, he said.
The President said that in the present context of global warming and climate change, green construction and energy conservation are very crucial. The focus, therefore, should be on reuse, recycling and use of renewable resources.
He said officers and engineers must be committed to work for sustainable development by creating energy-efficient and sustainable habitats that aim to meet human needs while preserving the environment.
He expressed happiness that the CPWD has decided to address the energy security challenge, and accordingly, solar roof top panels are being installed on all central government buildings and maintained by the CPWD.
These officer trainees are presently undergoing 35 weeks foundation training at CPWD Training Institute, Ghaziabad.
