Soon CBSE will have an integrated campus at Dwarka in New Delhi it will have all the modern features and amenities. Union Human Resource Development Minister Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ laid the foundation stone for the project yesterday.
Speaking on the occasion the HRD Minister said that the new building must not be merely a building of concrete but a centre of vision for betterment of education which should be reflected through this building.
The board’s proposed integrated campus building will be a state-of-the-art building while fulfilling the green building norms. 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 that will produce 300KWH of electricity from the roof of the building. A sewage treatment plan has also been proposed for flushing in toilets and reuse of gray 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. The 12,000-sq.m building is estimated to be completed in period of approximately 24 months.
In order to maintain better coordination among the various branches / units of the CBSE Board in Delhi and to meet the increasing challenges due to increase in the number of CBSE affiliated schools, the Board had earlier proposed to create an integrated office complex in Delhi and for this purpose, a plot of three acres of land was purchased from the Development Authority of Delhi at Sector-23, Dwarka, Delhi. With the laying of foundation stone for the project the Board has inched closer to achieving its goal.
