This article is a sponsored feature by National Building Construction Company
As part of its bold Smart Cities vision, the government has identified key spaces where Indians can work and live amid first-class surroundings.
Leading the initiative is India’s foremost construction company, NBCC (India) Ltd. With a winning combination of expertise in design and engineering, the agency has introduced a feat of function and aesthetics in its redevelopment of Nauroji Nagar.
The flagship Project Skyline, a freehold commercial and office space spread across almost 25 acres in the heart of New Delhi’s south, blends contemporary structures with futuristic materials. The result is one of India’s foremost office complexes, with a look and feel channelling global economic hubs such as London, Dubai and Singapore.
Project Skyline epitomizes the pro-business sentiment at the heart of India’s future.
History Of NBCC
Since 1960, the erstwhile National Buildings Construction Corporation Ltd. has been a Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSE) under what is today known as the Ministry of Urban Development.
Since then, it has transformed into an entity with a broad mandate to carry out activities on a national and international scale.
NBCC’s mission is to be India’s top-ranked construction company. It has already embarked on this drive by adopting global best practices and using new, world-class technology to forge a long-term competitive advantage in its construction and civil infrastructure businesses.
NBCC offers first-class project management and construction services that are synonymous with its brand values – environmental sustainability, innovation and cost-efficiency.
An in-house design and consultancy division ensures NBCC fulfills its mandate without compromising on quality, comfort or aesthetics, and helps clients secure clearance from government departments.
NBCC’s real estate business is divided between new developments built on purchased land, and redevelopments of government properties, which don’t require government funding. One of these, the New Moti Bagh GPRA Complex, is the largest green complex in India.
These are no ordinary developments, but rather slick, high-end undertakings acknowledging the need for homes and offices to cater to both work and leisure.
NBCC has also built a reputation for itself in the engineering procurement and construction (EPC) segment, particularly roads, solid waste management and water supply.
After a partial listing of shares on the Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange in 2012, NBCC was granted Navratna status in 2014.
NBCC has deployed its consulting and execution experience for civil projects such as hospitals, educational institutions, water supply systems and the power sector. It acts as the go-to entity for many government initiatives, including Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation.
In addition to providing engineering services to state governments, the agency has achieved global stature. NBCC has leveraged its expertise in Turkey, Iraq, Libya, Mauritius, Botswana, Maldives to name a few.
Project Skyline Nauroji Nagar – High-End Corporate Real Estate For Doers And Dreamers
Project Skyline is a world-class corporate office development with integrated modern facilities, state-of-the-art technology, cutting-edge security systems and plenty of green space to match a clean design.
True to its name, 12 multi-storey towers will be erected to redefine New Delhi’s skyline - a glimmering embodiment of contemporary India against an ancient capital’s backdrop.
Nauroji Nagar is an ideal location on many fronts, with easy connectivity from Indira Gandhi International Airport, railway stations and the Central Secretariat. Project Skyline’s proximity to the Diplomatic Enclave and trendy south Delhi restaurants and markets makes it convenient for multinational corporations with a diverse workforce.
After a smooth entry into the complex from Ring Road - a major arterial road - office-goers come face to face with a glass facade that unites architectural prowess and engineering excellence.
The entire unit and its surroundings harness the capital’s enviable greenery and space, with an edifice wide enough for a panoramic view of a landscape featuring gardens and fountain.
Once past the double-glazed glass, visitors are greeted by an ultra-sophisticated lobby reminiscent of luxury hotels. This gives way to more than 30 lakh square feet of customizable office area.
Project Skyline Nauroji Nagar – An Elite, Urban Sanctuary With Green Credentials
Project Skyline embodies the NBCC’s belief that successful global businesses must integrate modern conveniences for a utilitarian and sustainable agenda.
The company believes that for India’s economy to grow, domestic and international businesses must be housed in quarters that inspire and nurture innovation.
To this end, Project Skyline prioritizes employee wellness, safety and comfort, recognizing that productivity stems from environmental factors. Food courts, health centres, dedicated areas for cultural activities and three-level underground parking for 8,000 cars are just some unique points.
Built with comfort and sustainability in mind, the property inherently promotes energy- and cost-efficiency and mindful use of the planet’s limited resources. Right from the start, recycled and environmentally-friendly building materials have formed the foundation.
The roof is insulated to prevent heat entry that would negate an optimized central cooling system; solar power generates electricity to partially operate water and lights; an integrated building management system enables efficient electricity consumption.
Water consumption is at the core of planning. Landscaping relies on recycled water; low-flow sanitary fixtures are in place, as are dual water supply pipes; the complex is outfitted with a stormwater management system and sewage treatment plant.
As well as LED lighting and fixtures - fast becoming a norm in major office structures - Project Skyline has adopted the latest international safety standards, including a public address system, multiple evacuation points, external and internal fire hydrants, CCTV, security monitoring at every strategic access point, warning systems and computerized fire alarms.
All of these features and elements come together to symbolize an India that is ahead of the curve and committed to exceeding its potential.
Smart Cities is an ahead-of-its-time concept whose mandate relies on intelligent infrastructure and design, with a focus on longevity and environmental planning. Together, NBCC and the ambitious Project Skyline showcase the government’s foresight and determination to take India into the next decade as a world leader.
