GRIHA Certification: EMAAR DIGI Homes

Buildings represent a large fraction of global carbon emissions and energy consumption. In addition, shopping centres affect local communities in several ways. By integrating sustainability measures into our daily operations, we aim to do more than expected to achieve sustainable development. We have long promoted sustainable solutions through integrated energy planning. We have brought together the architects, building designers, and technology specialists to retrofit the existing buildings. Firstgreen has worked on some of the best projects of India such as LEED Platinum Volume project of DLF group which has been approved by USGBC as a part of country’s first LEED EBOM volume project. The DLF Emporio, DLF Mall of India , DLF Cyber Greens, DLF Plaza tower, Ericsson, DLF Square are some of our LEED Platinum rated buildings from USGBC.

The DIGI Homes is multi story, with 14050 square meter structure which is primarily used as  a residential building. EMAAR appointed Firstgreen consulting for its green building certification from GRIHA.  The starting points of the planning for the project are principles of sustainability and natural convenience. Its buildings have been constructed with materials which are durable, and balanced enough to withstand the hot, dusty, infrequently wet environment of Haryana.  The buildings is designed with a favourable orientation so that heat gains are minimal, and cleverly for the climate, we need less cost on air conditioning. Rigorous 3D energy modelling was done by Firstgreen team to assess the suitable glass selection with low U and SHGC value in the building to reduce the heat gain. The lighting was done using the LEDs to keep the lighting power density below 0.5W/SQFT. There is   basic five amenities within 500 meter of project.
