Facades can help in reducing the need for artificial lighting

Facades incorporate bigger fenestrations considering the sun path, which helps in minimizing the use of artificial lighting. Further, it helps in fabricating efficient building interiors and thereby minimizing the energy consumption, says Ritin Gulati, Principal Architect, Ritin Gulati & Associates. What is the importance of facade cladding in contemporary times? The foremost merit of using […]

Drythane solutions drive energy efficiency and prolong building lifespan

The energy requirement of buildings can be reduced by the internal layout of the design

By making the best use of the sun’s radiation, the need for heating energy can be reduced. Spaces such as sunrooms, if located on south façades of buildings, also contribute to heating of the building and energy conservation, by storing solar radiation, says Nitin Pawar, Construction Manager, Turner India. How does site selection and building […]
