Eco – Housing Assessment Criteria

As a part of eco – housing initiative, a set of Eco-housing Assessment Criteria have been developed by Science and Technology Park. The criteria are based on local environmental issues and have a checklist of measures aimed at architects, builders, financial institutions and homeowners. Designed to serve as a performance assessment tool, the criteria help quantify the environmental achievement of a building and provide a meaningful differentiation of buildings in the market place.
