Indian real estate development company Ackruti City has secured IGBC Gold precertification for its Ackruti Greenwoods residential project in Thane, Maharashtra, India.
The project is designed to maximise natural light and ventilation, minimising the use of artificial temperature control.
The developers will also adopt green-friendly construction practices such as preserving the top-soil for landscaping during excavation, and maintaining water and energy efficiency during construction.
The developers will use environmentally friendly material for construction procured from areas within a 500km radius of the site.
The scheme will use a rainwater harvesting system and install metering devices to measure treated greywater consumption for flushing, landscape water consumption and hot water consumption.
