ITS Campus, ITS News – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has long been promoting the development of environmentally friendly innovations. This was again proven by the signing of a joint agreement, or Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), between ITS and PT Wika Gedung Tbk on Friday (23/2), to support green construction.

Director of Operations 1, PT Wika Gedung Tbk Bagus Tri Setyana, explained that PT Wika Gedung has a greater focus on environmental issues. One of them is supporting net zero emissions through environmentally friendly construction innovation, namely the Modular Wika Building. This modular is an offsite or offsite construction methodology. “We are confident that we will be able to achieve zero emissions through this modular and also in collaboration with ITS,” he said optimistically.

Apart from that, Bagus also expressed his goal with ITS to detail the construction of tall buildings using a modular methodology. The plan is that this will be applied to the construction of the ITS Student Dormitory, which has 20 floors. This development will be the first in Indonesia. “We want to foster the idea that modular construction also has the same building strength and comfort,” he said.

Meanwhile, ITS Deputy Chancellor IV for Research, Innovation, Cooperation, and Alumni Bambang Pramujati, ST, MSc, Eng, PhD, said that this agreement or MoU with PT Wika had actually been implemented several times. On this occasion, Bambang wants to realize many facilities and infrastructure designs at ITS. “There have been many plans that have been developed for a long time but could not be implemented because of the pandemic,” he said.

The lecturer at the Department of Mechanical Engineering also hopes for collaboration with other parties, especially industry, to develop their research, especially environmentally friendly innovation research. According to him, the benefits of research and research carried out will be better conveyed because industry understands better what society needs. “With industry intervention, we will be able to develop more appropriate innovations for the benefit of society,” said Bambang.

The MoU signing ceremony between ITS and PT Wika Gedung Tbk was also attended by several officials from both parties. It is hoped that the signing of this MoU will provide positive feedback in the future between ITS and PT Wika Gedung Tbk. (ITS Public Relations)
