The Greater Noida’s Ecotech City employee does not require any artificial lighting. Not even a CFL bulb. Sunlight floods into their workspaces, and the play of light and fresh air ensures an almost ideal temperature inside. The tube light-lit, air-conditioned and smelly interiors that once characterized office spaces are fast giving way to designs that afford employees a feel of nature. The office block at Greater Noida is one of such 80 green buildings in the NCR, which together occupy 121sqft.
Technology for energy conservation is built into the design of these buildings. The Greater Noida building, which is the administrative block of Bayer Material Science, draws 100% of its electricity from a photovoltaic plant, and consumes 50% less power than comparable buildings in the region.
