AT ATMANTAN

We have taken many steps to ensure that we live in sync with our beautiful surroundings. An extensive area and weather specific, environmental study was carried out here to comprehend the possibility of green buildings and nature reservation through the use of passive architectural techniques, renewal energy, amount of solar insulation available, calculation of shadow ranges/sun shading and assessment of weather profile. In fact, Atmantan is a proposed Certified project. LEED being the green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. The findings there off have been diligently applied during the design, planning and construction stages of the resort to maintain the ecology of the land.

  • , all spaces have been designed to best . This is evident from the ample large windows in all the rooms and public areas.
  • Top soil is not discarded and is used by us for plantation and vegetation.
  • Special steps have been taken to only plant, soil and climate appropriate flora on site which ensures thriving landscape and through the year.
  • The primary source of heating the water for nearly all the applications at Atmantan is by way of solar energy. Evacuated type tube collectors have been deployed since they are most efficient and can heat water on days that are cloudy.
 
  • The installed at Atmantan is revolutionary and is called the Solid Immobilized Bio-Filter (SIBF) system. It is an eco-friendly, natural and non-conventional treatment system based on ecological engineering. Compared to conventional systems, the SIBF system is easy to operate and the quality of water produced is consistently superior due to efficient biological stabilization of impurities. There is minimal use of energy, operating skill & chemicals in the treatment process.
  • Atmantan has used for its Heating, Ventilation & AC requirements. To further in the public areas, we have designed the system to use 30% more fresh air than specified as per ASHRAE standards (ASHRAE is the global standards for HVAC design). Good indoor air quality not only improves our lungs to breathe more efficiently but also improves our productivity.
  • (Industrial waste) during construction - Fly ash has been used in our RCC works as per the approved ISO RCC design mix. (Fly ash up to 20% has been used in RCC works). In addition to this, fly ash has also been used in our brick masonry works as well. Fly ash is a waste product of the coal power plants (India gets 65% of its power from coal power plants). The use of Fly ash reduces production of other concrete ingredients, resulting in significant
  • The wet kitchen garbage is being used to create vermicompost. This is a nutrient rich organic fertilizer and soil conditioner which then gets used on site plantations.
  • Wasted resources during construction like cement bags, steel etc have been .
  • There has been no use of paints, woods, varnishes, finishing products etc.
  • Separate ancillary projects have been employed to recharge bore wells, increase the ground water table & plan other aspects of .
  • Only , and bicycles are being used as mode of transport at Atmantan.
  • We intend implementing annual once the resort is operational.
