Seven colonies are Nauroji Nagar, Netaji Nagar, Sarojini Nagar, Mohammadpur, Sriniwaspuri, Kasturba Nagar and Thyagaraj Nagar.
The re-development of the seven colonies is been done with complete adherence to environmental sustainability and green building concepts and special care and attention is being given towards retaining maximum number of existing trees and incorporating them in large cluster as an integral part of landscaping design scheme.
It further said, the upcoming complexes are being developed according to “Green Building Concepts”, zero waste discharge and environmental sustainability by the following measures:
–Ground coverage restricted to 15-20% against the existing ground coverage of 50%. The green area will be 50%.
–Plantations/transplantation as green barrier along boundary to cover main roads.
–Orientation of houses as per sun path to avoid heat gain in the building and green terraces to mitigate heat gain.
–Solar panels used for renewable energy. The total solar power generation in the 7 GPRAs will be 5,654 KW.
–Solid waste/Waste water will be collected, segregated and treated in-house and reused for horticulture purposes and flushing. Solid waste will also be used as manure for horticulture.
–Rainwater harvesting system for recharging the ground water.
–Use of recycled material from construction and demolition waste to be used in construction of structures such as kerb stone, footpath tiles, etc.
The upcoming complexes are being developed by providing green spaces, with lush green trees around the constructed building. An example of the same is the development of New Moti Bagh Complex and East Kidwai Nagar Project.
Ministry’s endeavour has been to provide exemplary models of development for the future generations. Change is inevitable and so is the need of the hour for the city. With utmost care and respect towards our natural environment, all measures are being taken in the planning and designing of these colonies to construct a Green Project with “Griha Certification”. As such green cover and sustainability of environment is adequate and appropriately ensured after the redevelopment of Seven Colonies.
