DCTI Knowledge Center
Inaugurated April 29, 2019

DCTI Knowledge Centre has been recognized and awarded the prestigious ‘Platinum’ rating by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) under the Green Interiors category in January 2020. The Centre becomes one of the few Green Certified Laboratory projects in India.

To commit to a sustainable working environment, DCTI has installed several green (environmental-friendly) features at the facility. For instance, the building layouts provide adequate access to natural light, outside views, and a green vegetated courtyard. Water demand is reduced by around 43% in comparison with IGBC base standards and lighting costs are lowered by about 40% compared to ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) benchmarks. A roof top solar power system helps to offset overall energy demand of the facility in the range of 12-15%. Careful and sensitive selection of interior materials has positive impact on indoor air quality and overall employee health and productivity.
