Smart GHAR III, Rajkot
28 Dec, 2017

The Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP) provides technical assistance to builders and developers in designing energy efficient buildings. The technical assistance is provided by conducting a design "charrette" (a 3-4 day integrated design workshop) in the early design phase of the project.

Smart GHAR III (Green Homes at Affordable Rate) is an affordable housing project in Rajkot under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) Untenable Slum Redevelopment. The project is being executed by the Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC). The charrette for this project was held in September 2016.

The India International Institute of Democracy and Election Management (IIIDEM), set up in 2011, is an advanced resource centre of learning, research, training and extension for participatory democracy and election management. IIIDEM is presently running out of Nirvachan Sadan.

Due to the space constraints at its present premises in Nirvachan Sadan, the Election Commission of India (ECI) decided to develop an independent campus for IIIDEM. The proposed new campus is at Sector 13, Dwarka, New Delhi. The charrette for this project was held in July 2014.

Strategies recommended during the charrette

Dry stone cladding with air gap and insulated glazing to reduce heat gain inside the building. Non-occupied spaces (like staircase, machine rooms, toilets etc.) on the south-west face of the block. Free cooling, incorporating the use of ambient air for cooling whenever suitable. Heat recovery wheel (effectiveness 75%) to reduce the energy consumption for cooling the fresh air. Use of high performance water cooled chillers with better part load performance instead of air-cooled chillers. Automated control on the chiller to raise the chilled water temperature (gliding chilled water temperature) as per the cooling load. Solar hot water generation for kitchen. Renewable electricity generation through roof-top solar photovoltaics

These buildings vary from G+1 to G+3 structures.

The buildings housing IT and BPO functions are developed as flexible modules, which were repeated in the site. Apart from these, there are common function buildings such as auditorium, administration, and guesthouse. Most of the parking is envisaged as stilt parking, which will be camouflaged with landscape.

Integrated Design Charrette for Public Office Building in Karnataka
13 Mar, 2014

The proposed project is located within the existing complex, which, at present, houses three other building structures. The building is designed to be Vaastu compliant as this was a major concern with the existing building and the reason why a new building was proposed. External architectural expression of the building unveils the heritage of the city. The existing design is a G+25 (ground + 25 storeys) building having a built-up area of 80,000 sq.m. It accommodates functional spaces such as assembly hall, dining hall, chambers for higher municipal officials, meeting hall, health centre, post office, bank, Right to Information office, video conference hall, and ancillary activity spaces...
