Key performance attribute (thermal control, acoustics and wind resistance, Fire Safety)

The first in the country, a Solar Carport has been installed on the rooftop and is connected through the ramp and has significantly helped in utilization of the space; it has also reduced the solar heat intake of the structure, thereby reducing energy consumption.

Innovative Technology Used

One of the first malls to be connected via a Metro Station at the Concourse Level, it is the first building in India to have a Solar Carport on its rooftop. 

Efficient Utilization of Resources

A boutique retail destination, Unity One is a unique typology of space, developed in partnership with DMRC. A successful model for a Multi-level car parking facility, the building is an interesting mix of activities, which encourage people to use the parking facilities, hence increasing the footfall in the commercial zone for an effective financial viability.

The idea of integrating a retail and entertainment destination with a major transportation hub by providing assorted parking facilities has been welcomed by the users; the model has successfully been able to create a typology which promotes efficient utilization of space and resources by punching multiple utilities in one single building.

Specific features provided in the project with respect to protection and enhancement of the environment.

The incorporation of the Solar Carport has substantially reduced its dependence on the external power grid, thereby reducing the load on the city. This building, owing t the extensive use of sustainable measures has received the IGBC Platinum rating recently.

Challenges faced in the implementation of the project.

This being a first-time initiative, there were apprehensions related to user comfort and acceptability. No challenge was faced during design and construction. Once open, the apprehensions vanished as the users have taken this initiative in a verypositive and appreciative manner.
