Godrej & Boyce- the pioneer of green buildings in India- has achieved the next level of high-performance design with its Plant 13 Annexe- a 24,443 square metres office-cum-convention centre in Mumbai and the first in the country to achieve the ‘Net Zero Energy Rating’ under the IGBC Rating system. Built in 2008, the building exemplified sustainable performance through thoughtful design right from its inception- with 90% daylit spaces, 36% energy reduction, 86% water saving and 100% waste recycling. Further improving its operational and monitoring system efficiencies helped it finally accomplish the net-zero energy target in 2019.
Rumi Engineer, business head of green buildings at Godrej, has championed the company’s green building initiatives for over 30 years. As a veteran of the green building industry, there is no one better than him to share Plant 13 Annexe’s incredible story- the journey of an existing high-performance building towards net-zero targets! Hear him dive deep into the approach, process, and challenges behind the project.
This webinar is part of ‘NZEB Knowledge Series’ – an initiative supported by USAID’s MAITREE program (http://maitree.edsglobal.com) to accelerate the discussions and catalyse actions on Net Zero Energy Buildings in India. This webinar-series will bring industry experts to share knowledge, expertise, ideas and showcase innovative products/projects/technology that can fuel discussions on building energy efficiency and grow engagement for NZEBs.
