DSM: India’s First Composite Material School
Royal DSM N.V., the global Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, announced India’s first school made with composite materials from DSM has been inaugurated. The school, situated in the village of Kusgaon, Pune, is a demonstration of DSM’s commitment to use its bright science in both Life Sciences and Materials Sciences to create brighter lives today and for generations to come.
The children attending the school will be able to take advantage of the very latest computer equipment and world-leading nutrition in one of India’s most advanced state-of-the-art schools. The school brings a number of innovations to Indian education. Made of composite materials, its lightweight and modular nature means it can be built by four workers in only six days (by non-skilled workers without the need for any specialist equipment), saving time, money and impact on the local environment compared to 5 to 6 months for traditional schools made from concrete. Its excellent mechanical properties and attractive design have also created a safe, strong, well-insulated and inspirational learning environment.
