  1. 1. Sustainable Built Environment Kamal Meattle photo credit: Rhys Jones (http://flickr.com/photos/rhys400d/420425672/ October 19, 2010
  2. 2. Sustainable Urbanism <ul><li>Effective protection of environment </li></ul><ul><li>Fit for planet , Fit for people, Fit for purpose </li></ul><ul><li>Better quality of life for now and future generations </li></ul>
  3. 3. Sustainable Urbanism <ul><li>India is on the move, driven by a young and growing population. </li></ul><ul><li>For a potential demographic dividend to actualize India needs vibrant and sustainable habitats for its villages, towns and cities. </li></ul><ul><li>McKinsey projects India’s urban population soaring from 340 million in 2008 to 590 million in 2030 </li></ul><ul><li>We will need over 10 million new homes each year for the next two decades. </li></ul><ul><li>It is said that 2/3 of India is yet to be built and this will happen in the next 20 years. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Actions for a sustainable environment <ul><li>Minimizing environmental and social costs </li></ul><ul><li>Concern for nature, prudent use of natural resources </li></ul><ul><li>Less waste, cleaner processes </li></ul><ul><li>Balancing the concept of a viable investment with a commitment to environmental practice </li></ul>
  5. 5. Applying sustainability to buildings <ul><li>Some sustainable design principles: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Low impact material : Choose non toxic / recycled material that requires less energy to process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy efficiency : Use manufacturing processes and produce products that require less energy Consider quality and durability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Healthy buildings: Creating buildings that are not harmful to their occupants nor to the larger environment. An important emphasis is on indoor environment/ air quality </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Going Green <ul><li>Increasing energy costs has encouraged the real estate sector to ‘Go Green’ </li></ul><ul><li>Increased trend in the LEED Projects </li></ul><ul><li>LEED Rating System emerged as a successful rating System for Green Buildings </li></ul><ul><li>Now an India based LEED available from IGBC </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in LEED projects - from 80 Million sq. ft. in 2002 to 940 Million sq. ft. in 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>Adopting indigenous attributes of each country to address the local building laws and conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Case in Point is TERI - GRIHA Rating that has registered over 20 projects </li></ul>
  7. 7. Our step in this direction <ul><li>Paharpur Business Centre & Software Technology Incubator Park </li></ul><ul><li>Our journey towards sustainable development and green building initiatives </li></ul><ul><li>GreenSpaces - The World’s most energy efficient building of 1.75 million ft2 </li></ul><ul><li>www.pbcnet.com www.greenspaces.in </li></ul>
  8. 8. Why buildings need to be green <ul><li>World’s energy demand is expected to grow by 30% - 40% in the next decade </li></ul><ul><li>Buildings consume 40% of the world’s energy * </li></ul><ul><li>Buildings account for 50% of all Green House Gas emissions. </li></ul><ul><li>In coming 15 years, more than 60% of the world’s population will be living in cities of over 1 million inhabitants. </li></ul><ul><li>There is a growing preference for living & working in air-conditioned spaces </li></ul>*source: United Nations Environment Program, March 2007
  9. 9. Paharpur Business Centre <ul><li>We are a mSME in the service sector. </li></ul><ul><li>We offer ready to move in premium offices with state-of-the-art facilities </li></ul><ul><li>Rated one of the healthiest buildings in Delhi by Government of India ( in a report published in September 2008) </li></ul><ul><li>Expect to be first LEED “EB” Platinum rated Green Building in India </li></ul>
  10. 10. Best Practices we follow <ul><li>We use biotechnology using green plants to grow “our own” fresh air </li></ul><ul><li>Outstanding indoor air quality </li></ul><ul><li>Amazing increase in human productivity </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced 60% energy consumption over the years since inception </li></ul><ul><li>We manage waste, energy and water as per certified standards </li></ul>
  11. 11. Natural way of air purification Areca Palm Removes Chemical Toxins Produces O 2 During the Day Easy to Maintain Money Plant Removes Chemical Toxins Produces O 2 During the Day Easy to Maintain Mother-in-law’s Tongue Removes Chemical Toxins Produces O 2 at Night Easy to Maintain Chrysalidocarpus lutescens (Living Room Plant) Epipremnum aureum (Specialist Plant) Sensevieria Trifasciata (Bedroom Plant)
  12. 12. The Road Ahead… IT/ITeS Special Economic Zone, Delhi NCR, India
  13. 13. The Road Ahead… <ul><li>We’re now replicating the concept of PBC-STIP in a much larger 1.75 million ft2 building in NCR Delhi - USGBC LEED Platinum, TERI Griha & BEE 5 Star </li></ul><ul><li>Being built as world’s most energy efficient commercial building </li></ul><ul><li>Flagship project of Asia Pacific Partnership </li></ul><ul><li>Energy reduction of 74% verified by TERI and striving to exceed 80% with the help of DOE, LBNL, ORNL-USA </li></ul><ul><li>+36,000 tons of Co2/annum reduced, </li></ul><ul><li>on demand side </li></ul>

  15. 15. Basic ideas that guided us <ul><li>The color of “green is white” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>White rooftops are not new, used for thousands of years (Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is estimated by LBNL that the energy saving in such buildings in India is about 8% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lower rooftops mean lower building temperatures, less heat transfer, increased comfort for occupants and reduced AC load </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In 2008, LBNL estimated World-wide energy savings of $27 billion if this was implemented by all. </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. Roof Energy impact on air conditioning <ul><li>Low rise buildings’ rooftops typically consume 20-25% electricity </li></ul><ul><li>Cool white roofs can save upto 25% of energy loads and 5-15% of total AC loads </li></ul><ul><li>A cool roof reflects and emits the sun’s energy as light back to the sky instead of allowing it to enter the building below as heat </li></ul><ul><li>Painting roofs white has a dramatic impact on the amount of energy used to keep buildings comfortable, as well as directly offsetting global warming by increasing the reflectivity of the Earth </li></ul>
  17. 17. Accrued energy savings at PBC-STIP <ul><li>As a result of our IAQ initiatives using green plants and best housekeeping practices, we are able to maintain IAQ with ventilation rate of 11.8 CFM per person, minimum ventilation rate specified by ASHRAE. </li></ul><ul><li>Compared to ASHRAE's recommended ventilation rate of 20 CFM with system efficiencies, we save 8.2 CFM of fresh air load on our HVAC system per person. </li></ul><ul><li>Financially, this results in a saving of INR 315,000 a year on 9 hour operation per day.  </li></ul><ul><li>This proves our adage - &quot;Green is Green&quot;  </li></ul>
  18. 18. Lets do it : its viable <ul><li>We cannot ignore sustainable solutions </li></ul><ul><li>Green buildings provide “Green Backs” – improved financial bottom-line </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduced OPEX </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carbon trading </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Verified performance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enhanced asset value, reduced liability and improved risk management </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>40-50% energy savings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>30-40% water savings </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. An Inevitable Reality <ul><li>If a private 25 year old building constructed to Government pre- set designs can be Platinum certified, why not most buildings in Delhi and elsewhere? This is a question we should ask ourselves. </li></ul><ul><li>It may be pertinent to recall what Winston Churchill said on November 12, 1936: “The era of procrastination of half measures, soothing expedients, of delays, is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences.” </li></ul><ul><li>This is relevant today for Global Warming. </li></ul><ul><li>We need to act and make ‘Green Living’ a way of life. </li></ul>
