The state-of-the-art Terminal 3 of IGIA New Delhi – adjudged as world’s number one airport in its category twice in a row – has become the first Platinum rated green terminal building under “Green Existing Building O&M Rating System” by IGBC. This is another significant environmental achievement by IGIA, after being accredited as the first “Carbon Neutral” airport in Asia Pacific recently by Airports Council International (ACI).
T3 is designed to be a model for passenger-friendly and environmentally responsible airport facilities. The Green Building rating system uses well accepted National and International standards and benchmarks for assessing the performance of the building in five parameters – site and facility management, energy efficiency, water efficiency, health & comfort and innovation.
The ecofriendly infrastructures at the airport include state-of-the-art zero discharge Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) and Water treatment plant (WTP), number of Rain Water Harvesting Structures (RWHS), energy efficient Bridge Mounted Equipment (BMEs), energy efficient lighting systems, advanced fuel hydrant systems, Fixed Electric Ground Power Units (FEGP) and Preconditioned Air (PCA) supply systems.
