Building Envelope
The building employs cavity wall construction for enhanced thermal insulation. The building also incorporates underdeck roof insulation for better thermal performance.

The building is designed to maximize natural daylight, reducing the need for artificial lighting and enhancing occupant well-being. A solar tube system has been integrated on its roof to harness natural daylight. Further, double-glazed windows have been installed to reduce heat gain from facades.

Fly ash brick has been used as a primary construction material. The roof has been coated with high SRI (Solar Reflective Index) paints, which offers protection against heat, water, and dust.

Rainwater Harvesting
The facility harvests 6,100 KL of rainwater annually. It has a storage capacity of 500 KL for rainwater, which undergoes treatment and testing to produce drinking water. When the water tank reaches its capacity, the overflow is directed to ground recharge pits.

Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning
The HVAC system includes a 1000-liter thermal energy storage system to facilitate energy-efficient manufacturing operations. The building has integrated variable frequency drives (VFD) in the mechanical system. This allows for precise control of the system’s operation, adjusting the motor’s speed and power consumption as needed to maintain optimal conditions while conserving energy. The building has also incorporated heat recovery wheels (HRW).

Energy-Efficient Lighting
All lighting fixtures installed in the building are LED.

Energy System
The building has installed energy meters for each operation, enabling the monitoring of energy wastage loops.

Water Management
The building includes water management practices, with rainwater harvesting being a key approach to conserve natural resources. A sewage treatment plant (STP) with a capacity of 130 KLD has been installed. The treated water is utilized for both cooling and irrigation purposes.
