Key Features:

Sustainable Site Planning:

•    Adoption of appropriate measures for soil erosion control, preservation of fertile top soil, protection and preservation of existing mature trees on site

•    Planning of services with minimum site disturbance

Reducing water consumption:

•    Reduction in landscape water demand by 55.74% by provision of STP treated water through drip irrigation and selecting mainly native and naturalized plant species for landscaping

•    Reduction in building water demand by 25.93% by provision of low-flow plumbing fixtures and use of STP treated water for flushing through dual plumbing system

•    Rainwater harvesting by provision of recharge pits to collect 100% run-off from roof for ground water recharge

Reducing energy consumption (compared to TERI GRIHA benchmarks) while maintaining occupant comfort:

•    For achieving visual comfort:

» Design of landscaping at the centre of the layout on podium connecting residential buildings

» Provision of appropriate openings for adequate daylighting inside more than 85% habitable spaces

•    For achieving thermal comfort:

» Provision of terraces, balconies and horizontal shading devices and appropriate glazing which will reduce 45% of direct solar heat gain

» Use of fly ash bricks in construction of building envelope and application of heat reflective paint on roof

» Provision for naturally ventilated and adequately daylighted habitable spaces

Renewable energy technologies installed on site:

•    Installation of solar hot water system to suffice 100% hot water requirement, thus reducing the consumption of energy generated from non-renewable sources

Use of low energy materials:

•    Structural applications: addition of fly ash in OPC and RMC, use of fly ash bricks and steel having recycled contents

•    Non-structural applications: use of fly ash based PPC and  mortar and plaster containing industrial wastes

•    Interiors: Use of wooden flush doors, Aluminum window frames and vitrified tiles having recycled contents, use of low-VOC paints, adhesives and sealants.

* Building performance as per audit report   

* Energy –

•    Final    EPI    achieved    –    15.80    KWh/sqm/year.

•    Reduction    in    EPI    from    proposed    case    –    42.16%.

•    Thermal    comfort    is    met    as    per    NBC    2005.

•    Lighting    lux    levels    are    met    as    recommended    by NBC 2005.

* Water and waste –

•    Water    test    report    indicates    conformity    to    IS    codes.

•    Water    consumption    in    building    –    17,37.653    kL/ annum

* Noise level –

•    Outdoor    noise    levels    are    within    acceptable    limits as per CPCB.

•    Indoor    noise    levels    are    within    acceptable    limits    as per NBC 2005.
