Gyproc’s Residential projects


Lodha World Towers, Mumbai
Gyproc’s Lodha World Towers Project in Central Mumbai


Lodha World Towers located in central Mumbai will be the world’s tallest residential towers on completion. The project consists of 2 towers; World One which has 117 storeys and World Crest which has 84 storeys. The key challenges in this project stem from the height of the towers which means using a system that is lightweight, easy and fast to install.

Project Highlights:

Gyproc drywalls have been chosen for this project as they deliver on all requirements of being lightweight material (helping to reduce structural load), being faster to construct with, and delivering high performance. Gyproc performance drywall systems and false ceiling systems have been specified and are been installed in all internal areas including internal room to room walls, room to corridor walls, bathroom walls and shaft walls. The highlight of this project is the installation of Secure Wall, a high security drywall with a GI sheet layer in between, being used for the room to corridor drywalls. The drywalls for this project are designed to give 1-2 hour fire rating and an acoustic insulation of 45 RwdB.

Abhyankar Bungalow, Pune
Gyproc’s Abhyankar Bungalow Project in Pune


Abhyankar Bungalow is a two storey individual house. This Bungalow was constructed in the year 2003 and is one of the oldest residential projects with a drywall in India. It is a steel building structure which required lightweight walls with fire resistance of 60 minutes.

Project Highlights:

Gyproc drywall systems were chosen for construction of all internal walls, including walls between the rooms and wet areas like kitchen and bathrooms, as they support the steel structure and are lightweight. Drywalls are faster to construct and provide better performance. The 122mm Gyproc drywall solution was used giving 45 RwdB of sound insulation, 60 minutes of fire rating and severe duty rating.
