Establishing New Benchmarks in sustainable residential developments – Saakaar Aquacity:
With a widespread of 12 acres, Saakaar Aquacity is the epitome of a sustainable township with due inclusion of luxury, economy, comfort, safety, and security. Located at Danapur in Patna, this real estate project promotes sustainable habitats along with the state of art in facilities and amenities. Not just a concrete jungle, Saakaar Aquacity is more ‘a complete city’ with 21 towers, 1024 residential units, lush green areas, sport complex, indoor games facilities, yoga & meditation centres, gymnasium, jogging tracks, amphitheatre, recreational centre, spa, cafeteria, ATMs, restaurants, party hall and much more. Saakaar Constructions-one of the top real estate company of India, have established new benchmarks in sustainable development by launching its dream project – The Saakaar Aquacity.
With 60% open area, Saakaar Aquacity has kept the FAR low (approximately 2) that makes the city more spacious with fresh air to breathe in. If you are new to the term FAR in real estate sector, FAR or Floor Area Ratio is the ratio of a building’s total floor area (gross floor area) to the size of the piece of land upon which it is built. With an emphasis on pedestrian friendly green areas, the township includes all essential features for healthier and rejuvenating experiences. Taking the inspiration from traditional Indian style of architecture and blending it with the modern infrastructure standards, the township has planned courtyards for an easier and convenient transition of the residents – public to semi-private to private. Each residential block is connected to the open areas and other facilities in a very efficient way to let the residents access the city smoothly. A combination of pergolas, jaalis, and shading elements have been provided in a simple and sophisticated manner to create an appealing facade and to get the benefit of passive solar cooling. Windows have been installed with sound, heat, and fireproof glasses. The lush green landscapes, adequate tree plantation and vast open space are the key highlights of this township project of Patna.
Imbibing the cues from the concept of green building, the developers have emphasized on utilizing every available measure to enhance sustainability. The residential units have been designed to maximize cross ventilation and natural sunlight intake. This will decrease the dependency on high voltage AC supply. For enabling the natural micro-cooling and airflow, windows are enabled with required pergola shading. The utmost concern has been given to the sourcing of Eco- friendly building materials viz. PPC cement, steel, pre-cast hollow concrete blocks, ready mix concrete, bricks, stones, sand, hardwood, aluminum, glass, etc. are used. Also, the materials have been sourced locally to minimize the environmental impact because of transportation.
Saakaar Aquacity is well equipped with a modern Rain harvesting system to collect the rainwater in pre-built water tanks and to utilize it later. Though the government made it a mandatory feature to include in all new residential planning, many of the upcoming or the previous residential real estate projects of Bihar lacks efficient rainwater harvesting system, but not the Saakaar Aquacity. The runoff from the building terraces, paved roads, and the open area are systematically channelized to the rain harvesting structures designed for the peak rainfall intensity as per the meteorological data. The parking lots and connecting roads are softly paved to ensure the optimum absorption of rainwater in the soil. It prevents the city from flooding in case of unpredicted heavy rainfall. A modern RO treatment plant has been installed to ensure the clean and safe drinking water supply to the residents. It also reduces the dependency on local bodies for drinking water supply.
Solid Waste Management techniques have been planned to enable separate garbage bins with respect to the nature of waste for proper waste handling and on-site treatment before the disposal. Skilled and experienced waste management staff has been recruited for responsible waste handling and disposal. To reduce the carbon footprint, special provisions are being taken in the construction phase. Adopting the zero waste policy, necessary arrangements have been done during the pre and post-construction phases. The provision of the use of solar energy for generating hot water and electricity has been kept. Also, Saakaar Aquacity has its own sewage treatment plant to recycle the used water. The treated water is reused for various needs viz. Bathroom supply, cleaning, etc. Taking a step ahead, for intracity transition electric vehicles are being used which reduced air pollution.
Amalgamating the traditional architectural features with modern-day infrastructure development, Saakaar Constructions have established new benchmarks in sustainable residential projects by launching Saakaar Aquacity. At Saakaar Aquacity, sustainability is not just an artificial add on to enhance the credibility and value of the project, but an inbuilt and integrated feature in the design and concept.
