It’s the World Environment Day! Every institution, public or otherwise has been doing, initiatives – small and big that improves our immediate environment to an extent, which eventually would have a larger impact on our planet- The Third Rock from the Sun! We have heard about communities considering recycling of waste, plantation initiatives and gradually shifting towards renewable sources of energy which results in reduced carbon footprints.
Identifying ourselves as one of key players in our space, we intrinsically believe that giving back to the environment more than what we take from it is not only critical but also imperative. At Rustomjee we take sustained efforts to bring thoughtfulness in the way we build living spaces. Targeted towards the growing young and affluent working population, who are seeking “walk-to-work”, Rustomjee’s construction are an effortless blend of the “work-live-play” concept.
As the end-consumers expectations for lush-green spaces, landscaped gardens, security, exponentially increases, we are offering an integrated township, Rustomjee Urbania, which offers all of these amenities and at affordable prices. Few initiatives that comes at the top of our mind are:
• Even while offering the benefits of urban living, this IGBC Gold Pre Certified project is a universe in itself that optimizes its green spaces
• The Indian Green Building Council has pre-certified us as a gold township owing to the many initiatives taken viz; Native species of plants used for plantation( ensures that the plants do not utilize excess water),China mosaic tiles on rooftop to reflect sunlight and allow electricity conservation by keeping the roof cool,low density lighting in common areas, no smoking zones, electricity charging points in the vicinity of the car park, use of low VOC(Volatile Organic Compound) paints, recharge pit etc.
• Appropriate erosion control measures during construction and measures to tackle it post occupancy
• The STP (Sewage Treatment Plant) enables us to recycle 30% of water which the residents utilize, and reused for gardening, washing and flushing.
• The use of smart bathroom fixtures conserve water and minimise wastage
