CPWD is market leader in sustainable infrastructure development: Puri

CPWD is market leader in sustainable infrastructure development: Puri

New Delhi, Jul 12 (UNI) Minister of State for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep S Puri on Friday said

CPWD has emerged as a market leader in sustainable infrastructure development and adoption of green technologies.

The Minister recognised the crucial role played by CPWD ever since its formation in July 1854 in constructing infrastructure essential to the growth of the country.

The development of the iconic ‘Sadaiv Atal’ Samadhi as a memorial to former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee, in 45 days without cutting a single tree; installation of solar roof top panels on government buildings to help reduce their carbon footprint, and installation of wastewater treatment plants in Sir Visvesvaraya Kendriya Bhawan (Bangalore) for horticulture use – are insightful examples, the Minister said at the 165th CPWD Day function organised at Vigyan Bhawan here.

'Such an approach is critical for the Swachh Bharat Mission and the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation to achieve green and sustainable success.

The organization has not only kept up with global architectural and sustainability standards, but has also assumed a leading role in formulation of these standards for institutions across the country,' he added.

Mr Durga Shankar Mishra, Secretary Housing and Urban Affairs, Mr Prabhakar Singh, Director General, CPWD and senior officers were present at the function.
