The second year of Konstrukt started on 15th September 2016 with the motive to recognize the best design marvels across the districts. A pledge to bring the design geniuses at architectural forefront, by providing them one common platform to showcase their talent and recognize other talents too. This initiative was and is a promise to people of West Bengal to bring out the best design icons, which were never acknowledged before.
Our main objective behind Konstrukt is to bring back East Zone in the mainstream construction. It is our endeavour to recognise value and cherish innovations and designs. Konstrukt promotes the culture of innovation among young civil engineers and architects and spreads the value of innovative design, particularly in West Bengal region and India at large. It is a one of its kind initiative which reaches out to the rural areas of West Bengal in search of talents in the field of architecture and engineering and help them with proper guidance and mentoring.
