Corporate Office for India Glycols, Noida

The office design for the corporate office for India Glycols embodies the issues concerning the workplace today, and explores the paradigm of the office space as a social activity.  Sited in a non-contextual suburban area of Delhi, the setting, led to the development of an introverted scheme that would address environmental and socio-economic issues from first principles.

Latest report of the Centre for Science and Environment ‘Buildings: Earthscrapers: Environment Impact Assessment of Buildings’

Our homes, offices, shops are the end users of energy, water and materials that influence the resource footprint of cities. Buildings cannot be treated as a low impact sector any more. While individually they aggravate local pollution and resource impacts,cumulatively they are a heavy draw on key resources in the country. Buildings must be managed well to cut their gregarious resource use and wastes.

Green Building Projects

All buildings use resources such as land, water, energy, materials and time to fulfill the functional needs of a space over an extended period of time and leave impacts on the environment. As such, there can be no buildings without environmental impact. However, buildings can be designed to keep the impact of buildings within the carrying capacity of the local environment.
