India Gets Ready To Build Green

The concept of ‘green buildings’ seems to be catching up in India. These structures are truly eco-friendly as they harvest their own water and not to forget the solar power systems. Not only this, they even have their own waste re-cycling system.

Plus the greenery in the otherwise concrete jungles that metros in India have become, is sure bliss. The construction has been done so that more than 50 per cent of the building is covered with glass like it is in Japan, which reflects the sun’s rays and keeps the indoor cool; thus, saving power.

When the fad was at a nascent stage, a 20,000 square feet green building was constructed in Hyderabad in 2004. But now, the green attitude is catching up. You will be surprised to know that the green buildings (please read 315) in India today cover over 235 million square feet. Via
