Pondicherry [India], May 31: In the 21st century, resilient construction is an abject necessity rather than a matter of choice, and construction companies in Pondicherry like Jenomaran are fully abreast of the importance of resilient construction in their projects. About 2 decades ago, most of us just skipped through reports on climate change and did not pay heed to those early warnings. Today, climate change is knocking at our very doorsteps. 

Chinese floods 2024

In April 2024, the world witnessed massive devastation caused by floods in China and Dubai. Although China as a nation always anticipated these natural calamities and had its rescue machinery perpetually in readiness, the fury of water this year was far more than what the nation was prepared for. Hundreds of lives and property worth several crores were devoured by the floods. 

Dubai floods 2024

Dubai on the other side of the plane was soaked by 142 mm of rain in just about 24 hours and one of the busiest airports in the world had to be shut down leaving thousands of passengers stranded at various places. The ultra-modern city of Dubai was far more resilient than China and the city has limped back to near normalcy quickly with the airport fully operational and most flights back on schedule. 

Different facets of resilient construction

Resilient construction has multiple facets like resilience to drought, heatwaves, sea-level rise, coastal flooding, strong winds, and cyclones. There can be many other factors, but the focus for most terrains will be the 6 factors mentioned here. Builders in Pondicherry will be particularly focused on issues like coastal flooding, sea-level rise, and cyclones depending on the location of specific projects. Construction companies in Pondicherry like Jenomaran also focus on structural designs to help reduce the heat inside the buildings.

Coastal flooding and sea-level rise

Sea-level rise and coastal flooding are major concerns for construction companies in Pondicherry. Many construction projects in Pondicherry are proximate to the seashore and therefore suffer the inherent risk of coastal flooding and sea-level rise. Modern technologies help in mitigating most of these risks though Mother Nature is above all technologies

Strong winds and cyclones.

Pondicherry because of its proximity to the sea shore is particularly susceptible to threats from strong winds and cyclones. Therefore, builders in Pondicherry are fully focused on these aspects in all their projects, particularly the projects that are closer to the seashore. Roof designs also have an important role in these terrains. Advanced technologies are employed to mitigate potential challenges and builders in Pondicherry use these advanced technologies in structural as well as civil engineering.


The world has already seen several disasters like floods and earthquakes and more are predicted to follow during this year itself. Resilient construction therefore should be the priority of every builder.
