Major Environmental Project

DKJ have been commissioned by Vtara Energy as the lead Architects and Principal Consultants on a major Biofuel and Bio refinery facility located in Ner, Nagpur, in the central Indian state of Maharashtra.

The project will be based on the BCG – Bio Circular Green economy – model and will provide a massive boost to the local economy as an employer, educator, and provider of health and community services.

The site is 48600 m2 and will accommodate the developments several stages and its associated facilities.

DKJ have been assisting with master planning and concept design during the formulative phase of the project.

The design team will visit the site in late February this year and engage with our in-country team members – Architects , Engineers, suppliers, fabricators and Contractors.

The first stage of the project is estimated to be $275 mill and construction will start in late 2024.

Goodbye 2023, Hello 2024

As we are now in December, its farewell to 2023.

Contractors are still going broke, building costs continue to rise, and labour is scarce so there are many pressures on design and new project starts.

We are looking forward to 2024 when we can share the details of the commencement of a major biofuel facility that we have been working on for a few years, and a new 6 star resort in Vanuatu.

Many thanks to all for allowing us to be part of your community and team and make a positive contribution to your built environment.

Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable festive season.
