National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) is a premier organization in the field of Space Research. Located at Hyderabad, NRSC is functioning as a full-fledged center of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Prior to 2008, NRSC was functioning as a constituent unit of National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) under Department of Space (DOS), Government of India.
NRSC is responsible for remote sensing satellite data acquisition and processing, data dissemination, aerial remote sensing and decision support for disaster management. It also sets up data reception stations for acquiring data from remote sensing satellites and engaging in collaboration projects with stakeholders from different sectors viz. education, weather, mining, transportation , disaster management, etc.
NRSC planned to develop its Shadnagar Campus near Hyderabad by incorporating sustainable features and green building technologies. The project name was NRSC – IMGEOS and NDEM Facility; IMGEOS stand for Integrated Multi Mission Ground Segment for Earth Observation Satellites, while NDEM stands for National Database for Emergency Management (NDEM). The Master Plan divided the total area at NRSC Shadnagar into five zones to accommodate their new project’s requirements.
A renowned R&D facility like NRSC with 24X7 operations has its own challenge in terms of uninterrupted operations. To design, build and operate a facility of such nature keeping in mind the performance and sustainability requirements is indeed a difficult obstacle to overcome. NRSC Team made it clear that they will not accept anything less than a Platinum Certification. This posed a creative challenge to all the project team members including CONSERVE, Architect (SSIDC) and all other stakeholders to dedicatedly pursue the goal with singled minded focus.
Right from the design stage, all ideas, and strategies were developed around the goal of attaining Platinum Rating. The design of the building was developed keeping in mind that minimum heat ingress and maximum natural lighting without glare are ensured. Envelope material like aerocon blocks for walls, high reflective paint with under deck insulation in roof, high performance glazing, efficient lighting design, occupancy sensors and day lighting controls, variable air volume system, efficient water-cooled centrifugal chillers, secondary chilled water pumps with VFD, renewable energy through solar PV panels etc. are some of the key solutions provided towards achieving the sustainability objectives.
