THE GLASS FAÇADE
Plenty of sky and green. That has been our
thinking from ground up. We have designed a completely transparent space envelope to
create an exquisite environment. All the way on the entire façade - a green glass crystal
shall hover magnificently over the landscaped plaza.
World leader in glass technology, Saint
has supplied the best reflective glass. Light-green tinted, 8mm thick and toughened,
they are being processed as double glazing transparent white inside with air gap
reflective tinted on outside, to cut the heat and sound radiation further. Supported on
Italian design black powder-coated full length aluminum mullions. The 100%
glass-reflective-tinted-and toughened is 5 times stronger than the standard glass
Dow Corning, a leading American brand has
provided Elastomeric Silicon Structural Sealant which will hang/support the largest
ever glass structure in India. The glass panel on the façade are 3.21 m tall.
This state-of-the-art technology besides giving the building a magnificent aesthetic
appearance and environment, will also provides a maintenance-free façade for at least 30
years and prove full energy efficiency.
All materials are already at site and the entire
structural glazing should be ready by October '98.

environment-friendly, capable of performance reporting and also capable of predicting and
preventing equipment failure via early warning and alerts.
The entire commissioning in all respects is to be
completed by Carrier by November '98.

European leader in Elevator Technology supplied imported stainless steel mirror finished
car body & doors, energy efficient V3F microprocessor based highspeed elevators
integrating advanced technology, passenger comfort & Safety with state-of-the-art
All materials are already at site and
creation/commissioning will be complete by November '98.
Looking ahead and to align with international standard of
quality building environment we have chosen the best in the world-350KVA Super Sound
attenuated, smokeless, soundless, waterproof, outdoor, maintenance free F.G.
Wilson Generator, U.K. to provide standby captive power.
This state-of-the-art generator will be in our site by
American brand, Armstrong Mineral Fibre Ceiling system, most
functional and versatile, has been chosen for this intelligent building capable of
intelligently intergrating the fire system, building management system, lighting system
