Hiranandani Estate Thane follows the eco-friendly mantra of ‘replenish, recycle and reuse’: Niranjan Hiranandani
MUMBAI, May 2015 : The leading real estate brand name, Hiranandani, prides itself on being among the first to come up with integrated townships in India. “Ensuring that these integrated townships are eco-friendly with intelligent usage of natural resources is part of the success story,” said Niranjan Hiranandani, MD, Hiranandani Constructions Pvt. Ltd. (HCPL). “In Thane, the Hiranandani Estate is a prime example of how the eco-friendly mantra of ‘replenish, recycle and reuse’ has been followed,” he added.
Elucidating about the sewage water treatment at Hiranandani Estate, Thane Niranjan Hiranandani said more than 4,500 families reside in the complex. “Daily, about 30 lakh litres of sewage water is treated. 80 per cent of the treated water is used for domestic purposes while 20 per cent gets used for gardening purposes. Day to day work like irrigation, flushing and curing of buildings are done using the treated water,” he added.
Apart from water, which is not allowed to go waste; and is recycled and reused; Hiranandani Estate Thane also follows the practice of Garden waste management and Kitchen waste management, but water remains the prime focus. “In a scenario where water is a scarce resource, using it in an intelligent manner has always been in focus during the planning and implementation process. When we plan an integrated township – or, mix-use township, as we refer to the same in present day – it has always been about making sustainable buildings, with a holistic approach to the township as well,” said Niranjan Hiranandani.
“We do not just build townships - we also ensure they enhance the quality of life of people who live in them. Being ‘Green’ and environment-friendly is part of this vision, and saving water, conserving it -- as also recycling and reusing it -- is part of the ‘Magic Mantra’,” said Niranjan Hiranandani with a smile.
The Hiranandani Group has built world-class townships and introduced integrated lifestyles: Hiranandani Gardens in Powai, Hiranandani Estate and Hiranandani Meadows in Thane, which have become preferred residential and commercial locations in and around Mumbai; while similar state-of-the-art mix-use township projects are all set to follow in locations like Panvel, Pune, Chennai and Ahmedabad. “These mix-use townships are acknowledged for humanising the urban environment and striking an attractive balance between greenery and construction,” said Niranjan Hiranandani.
The aspect of striking an attractive balance between greenery and construction is best explained by the project plan, which is people, economy and environment-centric, he explained. Similarly, rain water harvesting plants (RWH) have been installed; during the monsoons, water is reused by the immediate rainwater harvesting method,” explained Niranjan Hiranandani.
On an average, 30-40% of the water demand of the integrated townships is met by recycling and reusing water through STPs and rainwater harvesting systems.
"I think the company has now turned into an institution wherein being ‘environment friendly’ is not just a ‘mantra’ – we are really concerned about the environment. Save water: reuse-replenish-recycle!"
