The Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP) provides technical assistance to builders and developers in designing energy efficient buildings. The technical assistance is provided by conducting a design "charrette" (a 3-4 day integrated design workshop) in the early design phase of the project.
Smart GHAR III (Green Homes at Affordable Rate) is an affordable housing project in Rajkot under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) Untenable Slum Redevelopment. The project is being executed by the Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC). The charrette for this project was held in September 2016.
Built-up area: 57,408 m2
Climate type: Composite
Strategies recommended during the charrette
- Reducing heat gains through walls and roof
- Improved window design
- Improved ventilation through common service shaft
