New Delhi : With solar panels producing 300 kWh of electricity and a proper sewage treatment plan, the new building of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in Dwarka will be a green complex with state-of-the-art facilities. The foundation stone of the new campus was laid on Friday by Union minister for human resource development Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
“Some of the special features of the building complex will include the installation of efficient building management system that will facilitate energy conservation. Solar panels will be installed on the roof to produce 300 kWh of electricity. A sewage treatment plan has also been proposed for flushing toilets and reuse of grey water in landscaping. These facilities being included in the integrated campus will also contribute towards environmental protection. The latest security features have been taken care of in the design of the building,” said a statement from the Board.
The 12,000 square metre building is estimated to be completed in about 24 months. The need for the new campus was felt due to the increase in number of schools affiliated to the board.
Along with the CBSE building, the minister on Friday also inaugurated 13 newly constructed buildings of the Kendriya Vidyalayas and laid the foundation stone for the six KVs located in 12 states through video conferencing. This infrastructure will benefit more than 20,000 students.
