Sobha City, Thrissur receives Net Water Positive (Platinum) rating

Sobha City Thrissur becomes India’s first operational project to receive the Net Water Positive (Platinum) from India Green Building Council (IGBC). The integrated project hosts residential, retail and entertainment spaces with almost every amenity a contemporary project has to offer.

The mammoth 55-acre project has set a benchmark by meeting 100 per cent of its freshwater requirement through rainwater, while irrigation needs are met with STP treated water with no dependence on groundwater or any other alternate sources. Additionally, around 20 per cent of excess rainwater is given back to nature.

The project conceived by PNC Menon, Founder, Chairman of Sobha Group and Kurumba Educational and Charitable Trust, is also a prominent philanthropist, who has received several national recognitions. Born out of an idea envisioned by founder PNC Menon way back in 2006, an artificial lake, spread over an approximately 6.5-acre of land was conceived in such a way that all the water needs for the township including landscaping are met without dependence on municipal water or other sources – even during water scarce seasons. This manmade lake was completely transformed into an architectural marvel by the Sobha team, which now is the recreational open space and focal point, around which the entire property has been designed and developed.

Some highlights of the project include lush green landscaped areas account for more than 30 per cent of the project site. More than 40,000 native ornamental and fruit-bearing trees and shrubs of approximately 180 diverse species blend the landscape with the local vegetation. Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) to treat 100 per cent of sewage generated within the project that can be used for landscaping and flushing. And an Organic Waste Converter (OWC) to treat 100 per cent of biodegradable waste – the compost generated is used as manure for landscaping
