IIITD, New Delhi
The campus is planned to be developed in 3 phases. The institution sprawls over a landscape which seamlessly integrates pedestrian pathways with building structures and provides connectivity to the peripheral vehicular movement and existing road network. The planning corresponds to the north south orientation with appropriate shading for all fenestrations on the façade and high albido roofs with suitable insulation; maintaining optimal comfort levels. While natural light plays key role in most spaces, artificial lighting is controlled by the usage of high efficiency luminaries, rejecting incandescent lamp type inventory, application of day light sensors, usage of LED & HPSC outdoors, CFL & T5s in internal areas and segregating general light from task lighting. This helps limiting the watt per unit area to a level benchmarked by TERI and minimizing voltage drop in distribution design.
