Sustainability in Design & Construction India 2016 Buildings consume about 35% of total energy in India alone, and as a result of rapid economic and population growth, this consumption is likely to rise at an alarming rate. Acute hike in demand for housing, expansion of organized retail, commercial office spaces by multi-nationals, the setting up of special economic zones (SEZs).
Indian cities are among the world’s most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
By the year 2050 sixty percent of the population will be living in cities, the role of buildings in providing climate change adaptation options is fundamental to sustaining prosperity and well-being. A key climate change pressure on the built-environment is the diminishing availability of water for urban areas. With the rising demand of buildings it will be mandatory for all state governments to implement by 2017 the minimum requirements for energy efficient designs and construction set by the central government to meet the challenges of depleting resources, increased urbanization and rapid construction.
SICI “Sustainability in Design & Construction India” was introduced in 2010 by Nispana discussing varied topics like inclusion of aesthetics in built and un built spaces, holistic construction, retrofitting and energy efficiency and all the key topics on sustainability. Every year it created a robust platform for the top architects, construction companies, developers and consultants to meet, network and gain knowledge. Hence, Nispana is proud to announce the 7th Annual SICI Conference to be held on the 2 – 3 August 2016 in Bengaluru. The highlight for this year is going to be regulatory and government policies concerning sustainability in construction, sustainability concepts at city-level, successes, barriers and recommendations for further implementation towards mitigation of climate change impacts while discussing on how do we operate these sustainable cities and buildings.
This conference will attract over 250 members from across the Indian subcontinent and a few selected international service providers ranging, decision makers, thought leaders and influencers in addition to some of the industry veterans, giving a wider perspective to the designs being created & construction infrastructure redefined.
