AN INFRASTRUCTURE THAT SPELLS COMFORT
The buildings within the campus feature high solar performance double-glazed glass for heat insulation and natural light transmission. They also incorporate anti-leakage features in their four barrier framing systems.
There is centralised air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation within the campus. Four heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) plant rooms with chiller cooling capacities of 1,500 TR (ton of refrigeration), 2,000 TR, 2,000 TR and 2,500 TR have been set up. The high-efficiency chillers used with COP > 6 and cooling towers ensure that employees feel cool even on sweltering days. For Air Handling Units (AHUs), a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) has been installed for operational cost saving. To help employees deal with the chilly winters of Noida, a heating feature has also been incorporated.
FACILITIES THAT PROMISE SEAMLESS OPERATION
The campus, built as per standards prescribed by National Building Code of India (NBC), ensures optimal space utilisation. A building management system (BMS) controls and monitors every building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as ventilation, lighting, power systems, fire systems and security systems. A facade cleaning system, reliable storm water disposal system and a well-trained staff keep the premises spick and span.
To ensure uninterrupted power supply in the execution of daily work and routines, four main distribution stations (11/.415 kV) with transformer capacities of 4,500 kVA, 4,500 kVA, 7,500 kVA and 8,000 kVA in different ratings have been set up.
