It’s unfortunate that it took a pandemic to make us realise the importance of a healthy lifestyle. But the pandemic has caused a major shift in consumer preferences, since safety and hygiene is given more importance. With the health risk posed by the pandemic, the investment into projects that hold high-level safety and hygiene has been increased by most developers.
According to Aditya Kushwaha, CEO & director, Axis Ecorp, “According to a 2020 report, a mere 5% of buildings in India were classified as green building. These buildings are in demand not just because they are good for the environment but also for the health of people. While the cost of construction of these buildings is higher, they offer lower energy costs. The guidelines are very comprehensive. Even in our recent projects – Axis Blues & Axis Yog Villas – we have adhered to green construction.”
