This is for the first time that DDA is providing multi-level underground parking with up to three parking spaces for a flat, a three-tier in-house water management model, rainwater harvesting and adherence to the National Building Code 2016 in its HIG flats in Jasola area.
Under the three-tier in-house water management plan, recycled water will be used in urinals and for horticulture. Water generated from rainwater harvesting can be used for bathing and kitchen purposes, and RO-treated water for drinking, a DDA official said.
The National Building Code 2016 guidelines followed in the project deal with provisions of structural and fire safety, design provisions for wind and seismic loads, modern lighting techniques such as LED and induction light and faster lifts for taller buildings. Also, this is the first time the entire process is online. Earlier, people had to apply by visiting banks or DDA’s offices.
