Comments Off on Singapore firm to design Infosys Noida facility

Infosys’ proposed facility in Noida will be designed by RSP Design Consultants from Singapore. RSP Design Consultants is one of the oldest design firms in Singapore having designed several iconic structures around the world. RSP Design Consultants have done several landmark designs in India too like, Microsoft Campus in Hyderabad and Oberoi luxury business hotel in Gurgaon.

The proposed facility in Noida aims to achieve a LEED Platinum rating, the highest level of certification for a green building, given by the U.S. Green Building Council. The construction will begin as soon as the government approval is received.

As part of this project, Infosys will invest approximately Rs 750 crores in the first phase of construction to build a 2.7 million square feet facility that can accommodate a total staff strength of 5,000. The state-of-the-art project, for which the UP government has allocated 27.5 acres of land in Sector-85, Noida, will be one the most sustainable projects in the region, with extensive efforts to minimize the facility’s carbon footprint by leveraging innovation and technology in the construction process.

It may be noted here that Infosys’ Pune campus is currently the largest one in the world to earn LEED Platinum Certification from the US Green Building Council. The company is also in the process of expanding its Pune campus by nearly 4,000 seats to 35,000 for which it had recently received the necessary environment clearances from the Ministry of Environment.
