Greenopolis: Gurgaon’s First Green Residential Project

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The project has been conceptualized to offer a host of Green benefits to make the green living concept a reality. Each element of the design and architecture has been planned to create sustainable, ecologically responsible residences. Elements like maximum natural daylight to cut down electricity bills, heat reflective glass to control glare and solar heat resulting in reduced air conditioning load, water conservation techniques, heat reduction through insulated roofs and external solar lighting in landscaped areas for optimum use of energy are put together.

The designers feel that Greenopolis will not just be a green building but would also have the hues of sustainable living. Reflecting integrated sustainable green township approach, Greenopolis is being developed with a focus to foster the social connection of residents—there will be parks, play areas, plazas, shopping and entertainment hubs. The project has been pre-registered with Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).

The basic architectural layout plan of Greenopolis has been designed by architectural firm Design & Development (D&D).
