Only a miniscule part of India’s built infrastructure can currently be considered "green". However, the bulk of our infrastructure is yet to be built, and there are huge opportunities to ensure that we move forward on the path toward a sustainable future. Significant advances in that direction have already been made - from modest beginnings in 2005, GRIHA’s built footprint across India now stands at over fifty two million square meters. GRIHA Council strives constantly to increase this footprint – currently over 1780 projects comprising public and private buildings of varying scale and typology – including housing, schools, large developments, healthcare and commercial spaces, are currently registered with GRIHA across its nine rating variants.

This webinar aims to provide a platform for different project teams to present their experiences of building a GRIHA rated building and lay out the benefits accrued in terms of cost, environmental footprint, resource optimization and quality of life. The case studies will cover diverse projects that have been certified under GRIHA, SVAGRIHA, GRIHA for Affordable Housing, GRIHA for Existing Buildings, GRIHA for Day Schools and GRIHA for Large Development variants. Through these presentations and first-hand experiences, the participant will gain insight into the on-ground benefits of building green, develop a clear understanding of the multiple rating variants and how they can potentially be applied to the design of habitable spaces irrespective of scale or typology.

Learning Outcome

  • In-depth understanding of the benefits conferred by green buildings and the real world positive impacts of adopting the GRIHA rating
  • Case studies across rating variants presented by respective project teams demonstrating their approach to sustainability and the benefits reaped
  • Detailed information about relatively new variants of the GRIHA rating and how they apply to projects across typologies
