III. Water Preservation

a. Rainwater harvesting:

Rain water harvesting is one of the most viable options to meet increasing waterrequirements and also helps in restoring depleted ground water levels of surroundingareas. We have been executing ground water recharge pits & harvesting rainwaterthrough collection tanks for roof-based runoffs in all our projects. This helps inreduction of precious potable drinking water demand of the project by using rain harvestedwater (after primary sedimentation & filtration) for non potable uses such as washing& cleaning needs of residents .

b. Sewage treatment plant:

The sewage treatment plants (STP) of total 1200 KLD capacities based on Moving Bio bedReactor technology has been successfully commissioned in 3 of our projects and are alsocommitted to install 9650 KLD capacity by inclusion of STP's in the sewerage design of allour ongoing and future projects. The generated waste water is treated up to the tertiarylevel conforming to applicable IS standards and is used for flushing of toilets andlandscaping. This helps in reduction of fresh water requirement of projects by almost 40%.We also ensure that operation & maintenance of STP's are done by efficient STP vendorsfor atleast initial 3 Years after installation so that it becomes an integral part ofdaily society maintenance affairs.

Few environment friendly measures adopted for construction phase of all projects:

a. Use of Aerated Autoclaved blocks & fly ash bricks for all our projects includingaffordable housing projects of upto 4 floors buildings;

b. Use of available rain harvested water for construction purposes;

e. For FY 2016-2017 to install portable & modular STP's for treating grey watergenerated from Labour camps of our large scale projects and use the treated water forconstruction purposes thereby committing ourselves to reduce impact on fresh watersources.


The efforts made towards technology absorption:

I. VS1 system used for facade glazing: The VS-1 system developed by Franz Saffordof USA is a point supported glass wall system for the glass walls .The system iscomprised of vertical high grade aluminum “blade” extrusions and through-the-joint point supported aluminum cast fittings the system does not have any horizontalmember. This allows the use of standard glass panels (non-drilled glass) supplied by anyglass manufacturer at clients discretion. The system is also very fast to erect. Unlikeall other glass facade systems there are neither aluminium horizontal Members nor theirassociated connections in the VS-1 system solution and thus aesthetically a complete glasswall look is achieved. Our project is the only the second project in India to be executedwith this technology.

The benefits derived:

VSI system is more structure efficient. Larger size of vision glass panel is possiblewith this system. Replacement of glass is convenient. The installation is very fast ascompared to semi unitized systems

II. High speed elevators with Destination dispatch system: As one accesses theelevators through the lobby he or she passes through security which can be cleared by anidentification card which includes the information for one's desired floor. Allpassengers need to do is walk to the designated elevator and wait for its arrival.

The benefits derived:

Elevators with DOAS technology not only helps improve traffic flow and reduce powerconsumption it also enhances building security.

III. In case of imported technology (imported during the last three Years reckoned fromthe beginning of the Financial Year:

No Technology was imported during the Year under review.
