At Atmantan, we not only care about you

but also the ecology of the environs

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 GOLD LEED 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.

We will most gladly organize a tour for any guests who desire to see some of these engineering initiatives, during their stay with us.

Atmantan
  • With a Minimalistic Architectural style, all spaces here have been designed to best utilize natural light and to help the buildings blend into the natural landscape of the mountainous land. This is evident from the ample large windows in all the rooms and public areas; the buildings are all not more than a Ground plus one floor with exteriors done up in earth colours.
  • Solar energy – We have the largest Solar Hot Water Installation for a resort in the country! The primary source of heating the water for nearly all the applications at Atmantan is solar energy. Evacuated type tube collectors have been deployed since they are most efficient and can heat water on days that are cloudy.
  • Excavated Top soil is not discarded and is used by us for plantation and vegetation.
Atmantan
  • Special steps have been taken to only plant, soil and climate appropriate flora on site which ensures thriving landscape and organic vegetable gardens through the year.
  • Atmantan has used energy efficient VRV systems for its Heating, Ventilation & AC requirements. To further enhance the indoor air quality quality 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). After all, Good indoor air quality not only improves our lungs to breathe more efficiently but also improves our productivity.
  • Use of Fly Ash (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. NB: 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 energy savings and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Vermiculture – All 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 recycled.
  • There has been no use of environmentally hazardous paints, woods, varnishes, finishing products etc. during the construction of the resort.
  • Separate ancillary projects have been employed to recharge bore wells, increase the ground water table & plan other aspects of rain water harvesting. You will see several man-made lily ponds at the resort too.
  • Only battery operated vehicles, and bicycles are being used as mode of transport at Atmantan.
  • Annual energy audits are underway too.
