IGI Airport INFOSYS Pune India Smartest Buildings
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport and Infosys' SDB 10 & 11 buildings in Pune, as India's smartest buildings at the Network 18 and Honeywell Smart Building Awards for 2016.

Shri Rao Inderjit Singh, Minister of state in the Ministry of Urban Development and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, was Honeywell's chief guest at the function. Addressing the building owners, he said, "Government initiatives like 100 Smart Cities Mission and AMRUT have already initiated building a better infrastructure for citizens. These can be used as a nucleus to take the journey forward by equal participation from the private sector. We need to propagate further the work that Honeywell is doing; you cannot have smart cities without smart buildings. I congratulate Honeywell and the winners of the Smart Building Awards."

The IGI airport scored a perfect 100 in the safe and productive parameters, as well as a 93 in the green parameter. The Infosys Pune SDB 10 & 11 buildings made it to the winning platform with a score of 97 in the safe parameter. The assets at the Infosys buildings also scored high on elements such as cyber security, data analytics and cloud capability. IGI airport and the Infosys SDB Pune buildings also captured the awards for Smartest Large (>= 10 MMPA) Airport Building and Smartest Single Occupant Private Office Buildings in India, respectively.

"It is encouraging to see the interest and competitive spirit among the builder community and facility managers. The number of applications we received strengthens our commitment to make more and more buildings green, safe, and productive," said Vikas Chadha, president of Honeywell India.

Honeywell is positioned with the broadest technology solutions portfolio that serves buildings to support India's 100 Smart Cities vision, and is already working on several significant projects, including Bhubaneshwar in Odisha, Aurangabad in Maharashtra, Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, and an 11-city project in a large central state.
