Author: New Kolkata Team | 2020-10-19

New Kolkata is a property in the lap of natural serenity - a Ganga-front location in Serampore, right by GT Road with sprawling greenery all around. As a leading, responsible and aware group, Alcove brought together a host of sustainable solutions and practices at New Kolkata to reduce the carbon-footprints and environmental impacts. 


There are various Green Building initiatives that you can come across at New Kolkata. 

1. The lighting system at common areas in New Kolkata are mostly solar powered lights.

2. Rainwater Harvesting systems at the property facilitate cost savings on utility bills for occupants or households

3. Sewage treatment plants recycle 100% of the waste water, grey water and sewage using the Advanced Reactor at the property. The treated water is used for flushing and gardening, leading to water savings.


The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) certified green building design at New Kolkata provides an integrated approach, considering the impacts of the resources used in a life-cycle. Sustainably built green buildings are eco-friendly as they consume less water, energy and other natural resources. Thus, generating less waste and contributing to a sustainable way of life.
