A Sustainable Building
We are enduring the different ways to enhanced learning and sustainable future for healthy environment and green economy. We have taken up many projects for designing a sustainable school.

THE VISION
Designing a sustainable school is a mixture of ideas of how architects and planners are meeting the challenges of creating better schools for the future.

PASSIVE SOLAR HEATING
Our school building is based on this design. The heat is trapped in the green belt, cooled and the cool breeze blows across the classroom in summers thus providing relief to the body.

VENTILATION PRE HEATING
Ventilation pre-heating is inexpensive and efficient way to use solar energy. A dead south facing wall, without windows stops direct sun to enter classrooms in our school. We are using solar energy to light up the classrooms and save electricity expenses. Initial cost is high but long term saving is tremendous….a boost for green technology.

RENEWABLE ENERGY
We encourage our student to take care of the trees planted in campus for the conservation of renewable source of energy. Such a measure keeps the environment temperature cool and less taxing on electricity consumption.

CFL LIGHTS
CFL Lights are being used to reduce energy consumption.

GEO_EXCHANGE HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEM

Only a few schools in India enjoy the benefits of geo-exchange heating and cooling systems. This is one of the
cleanest methods for clean energy sustainability.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
We are using  occupancy sensors in class-rooms that regulates all electrical fittings based on the occupancy of the room, which will save expenses in the long run. School pathways are lit using Solar lights.

WIND ENERGY
We are working on to tap wind energy for electric motors, for pumping water for irrigation. It is very expensive but we believe wind turbines will drive clean energy into our school one day.

ACOUSTIC COMFORT
Our classrooms and the laboratories need good acoustical treatment so that noise transmission is reduced. Pin-up boards and Venetian blind helps.


_______________________________________________________________________________________________

ENVIROMENTAL FRIENDLY MATERIAL
Our school use Rubber wood or re-cycled wood for classroom furniture which is eco-friendly. We also use 'UV' exterior paint that reflects heat upto 15% so that the classrooms are kept cool during summers.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

RECYCLING AND WASTE MANAGEMENT
We segregate bio-degradable / non­-degradable material in separate bins which can then be re-cycled for paper. School has acquired a small compositing unit called Roly Poly in which bio degradable waste are converted into compose. Old timber and steel has been salvaged for re-construction purpose.

ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
We encourage car pool, cycling to school and mass transportation system and neighborhood concept for admission. _______________________________________________________________________________________________

WATER
The school building roof top is designed in such a way that the rain water drains and gets collected into an underground tank.  This water seeps under ground and helps to replenish ground water table.

IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES
+ Where indoor air quality reduces the risk of exposure to disease.
+ Where acoustics is such that learning in enhanced.
+ Where quality of light makes you feel welcome.
+ Where test marks improve.
+ Where absentees drops.
+ Where eyes don't get strained by reading in dark class rooms.
+ Where the choice of colours brings joy to your life.
+ Where increasing costs are cut by sustainable development.
+ Where the school actually becomes a teaching tool.
+ Where we are able to sustain our growth.
