With the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH) phase-2 construction about to conclude, multiple blocks of the campus are aspiring for GRIHA (Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment) – Green Building Rating. GRIHA Council, in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IITH), has organised a green tour of the IITH campus on Saturday.
The objective of the green tour is to raise awareness among the delegates regarding the operations of a sustainable building and concepts of energy conservation, renewable energy, water saving and sustainable designs, among others.
The tour included interactive sessions with the project’s architect and green building consultant, along with experts from GRIHA Council, where the delegates will learn about the operation and maintenance schedules and protocols of operating a green building covering the design, construction and operational stages.
It facilitates the exploration of sustainable building concepts, fostering awareness and knowledge dissemination among professionals, students, and stakeholders. Prof B S Murty, Director of IIT Hyderabad, applauded the successful Green Tour conducted by GRIHA Council, showcasing IITH’s commitment to sustainability, and said, “With over 50 participants exploring our campus’s eco-friendly designs, IITH’s imminent Phase-2 completion aligns with aspirations for GRIHA Green Building Rating.
Shabnam Bassi, Deputy CEO-cum-Secretary and treasurer, GRIHA Council, mentioned, “At GRIHA Council we believe in the old adage ‘what gets measured, gets managed’, and attempt to quantify aspects such as energy consumption, waste generation, renewable energy adoption, etc, so as to manage the same to the best possible extent.
