“The Makumbura Multimodal Centre is going to play a pivotal role in reducing current traffic congestions in Colombo and its suburbs through providing comfort and convenience to commuters. This in turn will contribute to economic progress in the right direction.

Revealing how the Company effectively found solutions to challenges, Eng. Mr. Chanaka De Silva – Project Engineer, JLanka Technologies said, “The client particularly wished to install the Solar PV System without causing any damages to the roof. This was a challenge at the design stage but we succeeded in finding a creative solution to meet the client’s requirement. We imported a ‘Klip-Lok Metal Sheet Clamp’, a product designed specifically to install solar railing to the roof top without drilling. This simple yet ingenious clamp design proved to be cost effective, customizable and offered flexibility during the installation process. In addition, our design team ensured that the public, who will be the ultimate owners and beneficiaries of the Multimodal centre would be able to enjoy absolute safety and convenience, once the project was complete.”
