Project Summary

Energy-efficient office complex

India’s energy and infrastructure development cannot keep up with the needs of its booming IT sector. An Energy-efficient office complex has a sustainable answer to reduce reliance on the public electricity grid.

It harnesses a resource the country is rich in, but which many architectural solutions have sought to escape in the past – the sun.

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the Holcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
