In­au­gu­rated on June 2018 in Gu­ru­gram, Mahin­dra TERI Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence for Sus­tain­able Habi­tats has been es­tab­lished to de­velop en­ergy-ef­fi­cient in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions tai­lored to the In­dian build­ing sec­tor and cli­mates. It would also de­velop an ef­fec­tive dis­sem­i­na­tion strat­egy for en­ergy-ef­fi­cient en­ve­lope de­sign and wa­ter use for sus­tain­able habi­tats. Mahin­dra TERI COE, a SVA-GRIHA 5-star rated build­ing, has used high per­for­mance en­ergy ef­fi­cient glass from AIS in its struc­ture, be­sides UPVC doors and win­dows, lam­i­nated sky­lights and frame­less doors. Said San­jay Labroo, MD & CEO, AIS, “AIS has al­ways be­lieved in sus­tain­able liv­ing and with our in­no­va­tive, spe­cial­ized and sus­tain­able glass prod­ucts and so­lu­tions, we shall con­tinue to help cre­ate and sup­port sus­tain­able habi­tats.” Com­mented Anand Mahin­dra, Chair­man, Mahin­dra Group, “For In­dia to de­velop, we will need to find new and in­no­va­tive ways so as to re­duce the ad­verse im­pact on our planet. To find the right bal­ance be­tween de­vel­op­ment and sus­tain­abil­ity is a big op­por­tu­nity for busi­nesses to make profit and flour­ish, and there­fore, be­ing green should not be con­sid­ered as a bur­den or cost.” “The Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence is an out­come of the vi­sion to bring academia, de­vel­op­ers, and the build­ing ma­te­rial in­dus­try part­ners to­gether to work on build­ing ma­te­ri­als and in­no­va­tion for the In­dian con­text,” said Anita Ar­jun­das, MD, Mahin­dra Lifes­paces. Ajay Mathur, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, TERI, said, “Two-third of In­dia is yet to be built. We need to find new sus­tain­able build­ing ma­te­ri­als. This ini­tia­tive of COE has been 2 years in the mak­ing and has been made pos­si­ble with Mahin­dra Lifes­paces and AIS who have sup­ported the COE with en­ergy ef­fi­cient fen­es­tra­tion and glaz­ing so­lu­tions.”
