Be­yond Squarefeet part­ners Ter­ra­con Ecotech to deliver sus­tain­able mall so­lu­tions


Be­yond Squarefeet, a start-up mall ad­vi­sory com­pany that of­fers end-to end so­lu­tions in spe­cialised ar­eas of shop­ping mall con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tion to shop­ping mall man­age­ment, has part­nered with Ter­ra­con Ecotech, In­dia’s leading eco­log­i­cal and sus­tain­abil­ity so­lu­tions provider. The two firms aim to eval­u­ate, sup­port and im­ple­ment eco­nom­i­cally vi­able, low-car­bon, eco­log­i­cal and sus­tain­able con­cepts and so­lu­tions for shop­ping cen­tre and mall de­vel­op­ers.

Speak­ing on this de­vel­op­ment, Dr Ramesh Ma­dav, Chair­man, Ter­ra­con Ecotech, said, “Ev­ery mall de­vel­oper should in­vest in de­vel­op­ing sus­tain­able and re­spon­si­ble malls. Malls are an in­te­gral part of the so­cial and eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity and it is im­per­a­tive for them to look at en­vi­ron­men­tal as­pects as well. We would of­fer so­lu­tions that would make malls greener with re­duced car­bon, waste and wa­ter foot­print, im­prov­ing their op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency and prof­itabil­ity”.

The need for sus­tain­able malls has be­come the need of the hour and an in­evitable busi­ness propo­si­tion. With the in­creas­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns and in­ter­na­tional pres­sure on cre­at­ing sus­tain­able and en­vi­ron­ment friendly de­vel­op­ment, malls are the next cru­cial area for im­ple­ment­ing sus­tain­able so­lu­tions. Susil Dun­gar­wal, Chief Mall Me­chanic, Be­yond Squarefeet, said, “To­gether with Ter­ra­con Ecotech we aim to de­stroy the myth that cre­at­ing a mall with prin­ci­ples of sus­tain­abil­ity is an ex­pen­sive and cum­ber­some af­fair. In fact, a sus­tain­able mall will not only be en­vi­ron­men­tally re­spon­si­ble but fi­nan­cially sus­tain­able too”. Be­yond Squarefeet is cur­rently hand hold­ing 22 malls spread over 13 mil­lion sq. ft. across In­dia, Iran, Qatar, Nigeria and Nepal
