the residential segments developed by builders. But, Green Lotus Apartments
is Tricity’s first green residential project that is certified by IGBC and came up

projects to enable smart cities for the future. With the help of smart and
sustainable materials, these projects are built to have intelligent structures that
significantly save time, energy and operating costs.

healthy living only in environmental friendly flats in Zirakpur. Also, during a

a great extent.
EFFICIENT WATER AND WASTE MANAGEMENT

lost during the distribution system. But, an IGBC rated building can help us
save water up to 30 percent and energy up to 40 percent that can help in
reducing building maintenance costs up to 10 to 30 percent. Green Lotus

effective water management.
BUILDING MATERIALS AND RESOURCES
Reduce, recycle and reuse are critical components to work on but they are also
the most important strategies to help reduce the consumption of our vital
natural resources. And for that using sustainable building materials to make
green buildings is essential. The materials and resources used in IGBC rated
buildings do less harm and helps to regenerate natural and social resources
present in our environment. So, as a homeowner, a flat or a building in which
you’re going to live and work is of utmost importance.
While considering the material and resource choices, any builder should focus
on key areas such as biodegradable & environmentally friendly materials,
conservation of materials and waste management & reduction.

that can be both tangible and intangible. With long standing and
environmentally effective structure, savings on electricity and water bills could

that a homeowner receives right from the day one of occupancy. While some
