In September 2022, we inaugurated our Center of Excellence, built for a centralized monitoring of parameters across our growing portfolio. This facility, at our Candor TechSpace, Sector 48, Gurgaon campus, will track energy performance index and water performance markers across all our office parks in the North and East region.
The space on which the Center is built was originally being used to store scrap. The scrap that was lying there — old façade glass glazing, false ceiling and unused floor tiles, chairs, tables, sofa sets, floor carpet planters — has been recycled and reused for decorative purpose. Even waste pipes were creatively remodeled to decorative planter bases, conduits and raceways.
The key achievements? Cost savings of Rs 83 lacs, and, of course, a reduction in the waste going into landfills. ‘Reduce, reuse and recycle’ is one of the guiding mantras at Brookfield Properties, and Project Center of Excellence is a wonderful example of the philosophy in action.
