Sustainable Design
CII-Sohrabji Godrej Green building
My institution has put us forth with a hospital design project, it is an extension to an already existing heritage building. The project is quite interesting, especially the part of merging the old with the new.

My outlook towards this project is to make it a energy efficient building. I have gone through a lot of info regarding this, and I am incorporating elements like photovoltaic cells, rainwater harvesting, use of renewable materials etc...

I came across the CII-Sohrabji Godrej Green building in Hyderabad, I would like to have some more info on this building or any other green building in India.

Hi Deepa,
The CII building is definitely a must see building. It has a platinum LEED rating and has highest possible number of points for a building in India, on the LEED rating system. There is another, the WIPRO office in Gurgaon. Look up the TERI website for other case studies. You can check out

It a free (5 free runs) similation software on the net to eveluate the performance of your building. But I think you will have to work on revit for that. If you really want to work on a green building you must read about the performance based design approach. Let me know if you need to know anything specific.

I am looking forward to do my thesis on Sustainable Building Design. I am in the process of deciding a project which really needs a sustainable approach.

It has already started in the field of housing as well as of institutions. I would like to know if anyone can suggest to me another field where sustainability would be a challenge.

There is a good book regarding the same: "Energy efficient buildings in India" written by Mili Majumdar. It is available for sale on the net, & it has cases of 41 energy efficient buildings in India.
I think that book may be useful.
