Upon its initiation in October 2018, the Statue of Unity formally turned into the tallest statue on the planet. Arriving at a stature of 597 feet (182 m), the giant statue of the Indian statesman and autonomy extremist Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is double the tallness of the Statue of Liberty.

In 2010, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced plans to build a statue in honor of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel (1875 –1950), one of the founding fathers of the Republic of India. And while the announcement of a new statue typically evokes a few nods and disinterested shrugs, this announcement immediately fired the imaginations of people around the world.
The Statue of Unity was to be the tallest statue in the world, twice as tall as the Statue of Liberty and surpassing the previous record holder, the Spring Temple Buddha in China, by 177 feet (54 m).
Construction began in October 2014 at a site on the banks of the Narmada River in Gujarat. In charge of the project was Larsen & Toubro, one of India’s leading construction companies. The cost: a cool US$420 million.
Workers labored for about four years to build this gargantuan statue. The materials used included about 1,800 tons of bronze, 20,000 tons of reinforced steel and more than 7,000 tons of structured steel, with around 235,000 cubic yards of concrete filling the statue’s interior. And to prevent a very embarrassing and

costly disaster, the statue was built to withstand winds of up to 140 miles per hour and earthquakes measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale.
The statue was inaugurated by Prime Minister Modi on 31 October, 2018 (and a month later was photographed from space). For many it was a source of national pride and a clear demonstration of Indian construction skills. But it wasn’t without its detractors. The sheer cost of the thing was and is an obvious bone of contention, with some arguing that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel himself would never have approved of such a costly project.
Had the statue not attracted sufficient tourism to the area, it may have been even more controversial. But despite being able to see the statue quite clearly from miles away, tourists have flocked to see it up close. In the first few days of December 2018, the site was attracting around 30,000 visitors every day.

Story Behind the Design


Narendra Modi first announced the project to commemorate Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on 7 October 2010 at a press conference to mark the beginning of his 10th year as the Chief Minister of Gujarat.
At the time, the project was dubbed, “Gujarat’s tribute to the nation”. A special purpose vehicle named the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Rashtriya Ekta Trust (SVPRET).
Therefore, It was constituted by the Government of Gujarat for executing the project.
An outreach drive named the Statue of Unity Movement was started to support the construction of the statue.
It helped collect the iron needed for the statue by asking farmers to donate their used farming instruments.
By 2016, total 135 metric tonnes of scrap iron had been collected. About 109 tonnes of it was used to make the foundation of the statue after processing.
A marathon entitled Run For Unity was held on 15 December 2013 in Surat in support of the project.

prominent leaders of the Indian independence movement.
The first Deputy Prime Minister of India, and responsible for the unification of hundreds of princely states to form the modern political boundary of India.
The Statue of Unity is an enlarged version of this statue in the Ahmedabad International Airport.
After studying numerous statues of Patel across the country.A team of historians, artists, and academics chose to proceed with a design submitted by the Indian sculptor, Ram V. Sutar .
The Statue of Unity is a much larger replica of a statue of the leader installed at Ahmedabad International Airport.
Commenting on the design, Ram Sutar’s son, Anil Sutar explains that “the expression, posture and pose justify the dignity, confidence, iron will as well as kindness that his persona exudes.”

Man, Behind the Design of Statue


The head is up, a shawl flung from shoulders and hands are on the side as if he is set to walk”. Three models of the design measuring 3 feet (0.91 m), 18 feet (5.5 m), and 30 feet (9.1 m) were initially created.
Once the design of the largest model was approved. A detailed 3D-scan was produced which formed the basis for the bronze cladding cast in a foundry in China.
Patel’s dhoti-clad legs and the use of sandals for footwear rendered the design thinner at the base than at the top thereby affecting its stability.
This was addressed by maintaining a slenderness ratio of 16:19 rather than the customary 8:14 ratio of other tall buildings.
The statue is built to withstand winds of up to 180 kilometres per hour (110 mph). And earthquakes measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale which are at a depth of 10 km within a radius of 12 km of the statue.
This is aided by the use of two 250-tonne tuned mass dampers which ensure maximum stability.
The total height of the structure from its base is 240 m (790 ft), with a base of 58 m (190 ft) and statue of 182 m (597 ft).
The height of 182 was specifically chosen to match the number of seats in the Gujarat Legislative Assembly.

Funding


The statue was built by Public Private Partnership model, with most of the money raised by the Government of Gujarat.
The Gujarat state government had allotted ₹6 billion (US$83 million) for the project in the budget from 2012 to 2015.In the 2014–15 Union Budget, ₹2 billion (US$28 million) were allocated for the construction of the statue.
Funds were also contributed by Public Sector Undertakings under Corporate Social Responsibility scheme.

The total cost of the project was estimated to be about ₹20.63 billion (US$290 million) by the government.
It took 56 months to complete.15 months for planning, 40 months for construction and two months for handing over by the consortium.
After that The tender bids for the first phase were invited in October 2013 and were closed in November 2013.
Narendra Modi, then serving as Chief Minister of Gujarat, laid the statue’s foundation stone on 31 October 2013, the 138th anniversary of Patel’s birth.
Indian infrastructure company Larsen & Toubro won the contract on 27 October 2014 for its lowest bid of ₹29.89 billion (US$420 million) for the design, construction and maintenance.

The Sadhu Bet hillock was flattened from 70 to 55 metres to lay the foundation.
L&T employed over 3000 workers and 250 engineers in the statue’s construction.
The core of the statue utilised 210,000 cubic metres (7,400,000 cu ft) of cement concrete. 6500 tonnes of structural steel, and 18500 tonnes of reinforced steel.

Material Used for Making Statue Of Unity


In Conclusion The outer façade is made up of 1700 tonnes of bronze plates and 1850 tonnes of bronze cladding which in turn comprise 565 macro & 6000 micro panels.
The bronze panels were cast in Jiangxi Tongqing Metal Handicrafts Co. Ltd (the TQ Art foundry) in China as suitable facilities.They were unavailable in India.
