ACC Launches a new State-of-the-art Green Building Centre in Amritsar
ACC launched its state of the art Green Building Centre (GBC) in Amritsar, Punjab today. The centre was inaugurated by Rajiv Kumar, Director Sales- North and Central in the presence of Danish Rashid, Head- Green Buildings Business, Rohit Sharma Head – Sales Unit Punjab, the SU Punjab team, architects, channel partners and government engineers.
This is one of the biggest GBCs in India located on the Pathankot 2–Amritsar National highway and covering an area of approximately 5 acres. The Green Building Centers are part of a conscious effort towards sustainable construction and optimum utilization of resources without causing harm to the environment. Superior quality materials are usually manufactured using fly ash bricks while maintaining soil and air quality. These projects are undertaken in rural or semi-urban areas where there is a need for sustainable construction. The areas benefit from the unique business model and the training and employment of thousands of small scale construction workers, the company informed.
ACC has already built several such centers in the states of Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bengal, Maharashtra and Rajasthan. There are 31 operational GBCs and this is expected to rise to 50 by the end of 2017, the company said.
