Green Building Material

India is undoubtedly showing a tremendous growth in the development graph. The country's infrastructure is becoming an integral part of the development by the year. There are many a new cities which are getting their own airports now, tier 2 cities have also come up the scale and have shown tremendous leap, rail & road sector has got a boost from the newer technologies introduced, taking inspiration from the west.

Where, on one side, this growth puts India on a respectable position globally, it also demands a certain level of responsibility towards the country's greener environment and natural resource conservation. These days' "going green" is the buzz word.

Sources reveal that Karnataka has 41 green buildings which is the fourth largest figure for any state in the country and out of 41, 39 buildings are in Bangalore.Surprisingly, the penetration level according to the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) is just 5%. The good sign is that the residential sector is coming up with such buildings. This sector will outnumber the commercial buildings by 2030 in India.

Maharashtra, the National Capital Region, Tamil Nadu are some regions where green construction is picking up rapidly.

The core of a green building is one that has a minimum amount of impact on the environment and has a responsible relationship with the environment. A net zero carbon building is one with such a design and construction strategy that it does not consume any energy after everything is set and done.Now all the big projects like the upcoming airports, stadiums, IT parks, Metro Stations, Industrial buildings, Manufacturing facilities etc are asking about Green buildings and LEED certification not only for the initial benefits provided by government but due to long run benefits like energy conservation, Corporate social responsibility obligations and Positive impact on the Brand image of the company & Publicity etc.

  • We use bare Galvalume with sleep slope(>1:6)- this minimizes the heat island effect.
  • We install 3-5% skylights on the roof of the total roof area of the building which reduces the need of artificial lights inside the building and saves electricity.
  • Our buildings help in reducing the carbon footprint by reducing the solid waste, improving air and waste quality and conserving natural resources by reducing the rate of consumption.
  • We employ energy efficient methods in steel production that help to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.
  • Pollution free and further recyclable- Even after demolition, our buildings don't accumulate wastage like asphalt shingles, concrete, brick and dust in the environment and steel can be recycled for other applications too.
