Green Buildings


  • Energy efficient building design: GKSPL has strong technical skills to provide energy efficiency and occupant comfort advisory support for building projects. The services include evaluation of potential of project specific energy efficiency strategies related to building envelope, lighting design and HVAC design.
  • Building energy simulation: GKSPL deploys state-of-the-art simulation tools for the thermal performance and daylighting analysis of building design. This helps in evaluating the energy saving potential of various design strategies and making informed decisions during the building design stage.
  • Renewable energy integration: GKPL extends its expertise in renewable energy sector to building sector by providing end to end solutions for integration of renewable energy in the buildings.
  • Integrated design charrettes: GKSPL have expertise in conducting design charrettes for fostering integrated design process early in the building design. The charrette facilitates collaboration between all the stakeholders of buildings to develope energy efficiency concepts for projects.
  • Policy advisory: GKSPL works with Government depatments and International Development Agencies to assist them in the development and mainstreaming of policies related to building energy efficiency.
  • Training and capacity building:áGKSPL believes that training and dissemination of knowledge is important to develop next generation professionals in the domain of building energy efficiency. GKSPL provide training programme related to integrated design charrette, building energy efficiency, application of renewable energy in buildings and use of energy simulation tools.


  1. Indo-Swiss Building Energy Efficiency Project (BEEP): GKSPL is the Indian Project Mangement and Technical Unit (PMTU) for this project. BEEP aims to reduce energy consumption in new commercial buildings and to disseminate best practices for the construction of low energy residential and public buildings. BEEP is conducting and promoting the Integrated Design Charrette concept to develop the energy concept and advisories for the building project. BEEP recently launched the "Design guidelines for energy efficient multi-storey residential buildings for composite and hot-dry climate". We are working with Public Works Department of state of Karnataka and Rajasthan for developing template standards for new government buildings.
