ACC launces India's first Sustainable house called Gratitude Villa

ACC Ltd. has launched Houses of Tomorrow (HOT), a worldwide programme of Holcim, in India as a concrete step toward achieving sustainable development.

ACC will be the first Indian building materials company to monitor and encourage low CO2 emissions in constructing single-family homes.

The Houses of Tomorrow are long-term, cost-effective, accessible, and repeatable. The programme plans to build homes using novel low-CO2 building materials.

Puducherry is home to the first project in India, called Gratitude Villa.

The project, designed by Trupti Doshi, a well-known sustainability expert, blends materials, climate-specific passive design, and smart building processes to produce a holistically sustainable house that also improves the tenants' comfort.

The use of materials such as ECOPact green concrete, ACC Suraksha cement, fly-ash bricks, and a low CO2 alternative to virgin steel reinforcing is planned to minimise CO2 emissions by 40% at Gratitude Villa.

Mr. Sridhar Balakrishnan, MD & CEO, ACC Limited, told the media that their parent company Holcim is pioneering the move to sustainable building.

The concept of Houses of Tomorrow sprang from this commitment to sustainability.

He said that they are excited to launch this project in India, which would help us continue to inspire future generations of house builders to choose green goods and solutions.

Balakrishnan said that through innovation and clever design, they believe that sustainability is for everyone in every place and at any price range.

Over 40 well-known architects were asked to participate in the Houses of Tomorrow initiative as part of the selection process.

Gratitude Villa was chosen as the first House of Tomorrow in India after a jury evaluation, as it satisfied the goal of displaying a beautifully designed house that uses low carbon impact materials and sustainable construction.

The first wave of this unique initiative, which is being coordinated across five nation- India, Kenya, France, Canada, and Mexico – plans to have a good influence on the environment while also providing long-term value to the population.
