the project. Barring existing trees and the landscape developed, there is no significant
ecological value of the extant site in terms of species and habitat diversity. The open
spaces, parking and green areas have been designed based on sound planning principles
and best architectural practices. There is an increase in green area due to plinth of
proposed building being less than existing buildings.

1.4. Will there be any significant land disturbance resulting in erosion, subsidence &
instability? (Details of soil type, slope analysis, vulnerability to subsidence,
seismicity etc may be given).

Subsurface strata of the Project site comprises weathered formation of Murrum.


Topography of the site is plain therefore no slope instability, soil liquefaction or soil
erosion is anticipated. Natural gradient from south east to North west is being maintained.

1.5. Will the proposal involve alteration of natural drainage systems? (Give details on a
contour map showing the natural drainage near the proposed project site)

The proposed Project site is largely levelled and is devoid of any specific primary or
secondary drainage system. Thus development of the Project will not lead to any
alteration in natural drainage system.

Rainwater harvesting proposed on the Project site will not significantly increase the runoff
as the site was already built up. The storm water network will be connected to the existing
system. Natural gradient from south east to North west is being maintained.

1.6. What are the quantities of earthwork involved in the construction activity-cutting,
filling, reclamation etc (Give details of the quantities of earthwork involved,
transport of fill materials from outside the site, etc).

The earth work will include foundation and excavation for construction of Basement is
approx. 161000cum. Approx. 14000 cum soil will be used for backfilling and the remaining
will be disposed as directed by Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) after
obtaining necessary permission. The Top soil will be stored and used for landscaping.

1.7. Give details regarding water supply, waste handling etc. during the construction
period.
During construction phase, approx. 80 kld water will be required for construction - concrete
mixing and curing purpose and in case RMC is used and drinking for labourers,. The
construction water requirement will be reliably met from the bore wells at the site and tankers
if required.

The site has drinking water connection from MCGM which will also be the water source for
the on-site labour colony. Details of the construction phase solid waste handling are given in
point no 1.9 below.

1.8. Will the low lying areas & wetlands get altered? (Provide details of how low lying
and wetlands are getting modified from the proposed activity)

There is no low lying or wetland areas under influence of the proposed project.

1.9. Whether construction debris & waste during construction cause health hazard?
(Give quantities of various types of wastes generated during construction including
the construction labour and the means of disposal)

Construction waste arising from the project shall be disposed in appropriate manner as
indicated below:

Total amount of broken concrete structures, brick wastage and wasted mortar generated
from plastering operation will be about 2-3 % by mass of the total building material used in
the project will be collected from the site and stored in a designated place. The material will
be crushed, aggregated and mixed with other road sub-base construction material.
Sieved sand, broken brick bats and chipped plaster will be used in the construction of roads
and for backfill and consolidation of surfaces under podia, under margins/pitching of storm
water drains, periphery curbing of roads, etc. Broken tiles, wasted sanitary ware, broken
glass and other glazed/vitrified material will be will be collected, broken again into pieces of
suitable size and used for mosaic work on the terraces, exposed structures of the buildings
and on the floors of parking/parking approaches for aesthetics and solar reflection purposes.
Scrap scaffoldings, fasteners, waste clamps, scrap wire ropes, TOR steel scrap, waste
shuttering material and metal drums, etc. will be sold to local scrap dealers for onward
recycling. Used plastic bags of cement and other construction material will be sold back to
the supplier for reuse.

2.5. Will there be diversion of water from other users? (Please assess the impacts of
the project on other existing uses and quantities of consumption)

MCGM will supply the required quantity of water for the project from its existing reservoirs
which have adequate capacity earmarked for expanded supplies.

2.6. What is the incremental pollution load from wastewater generated from the
proposed activity? (Give details of the quantities and composition of wastewater
generated from the proposed activity).

The wastewater from existing building is treated in two STPs (1200 kld combined capacity)
based on MBBR and MBR technology. The wastewater from the proposed expansion will be
treated in a STP of 570 kld based on SBR/ MBBR technology and reused. No treated
wastewater will be let into the UGD. Bases of calculation of water requirement and
wastewater generation are as follows:

2.7. Give details of the water requirements met from water harvesting? Furnish details
of the facilities created.

Water harvesting through Roof Top Harvesting will be done in the proposed building as is the
system in the existing buildings. Storm water will be directed to the harvesting pits to be
constructed along the new storm water network. The rainwater harvesting scheme for the
proposed building will be given in the EIA.

2.8. What would be the impact of the land use changes occurring due to the proposed
project on the runoff characteristics (quantitative as well as qualitative) of the area
in the post construction phase on a long term basis? Would it aggravate the
problems of flooding or water logging in any way?

A well laid storm water network already exists in the campus. The runoff after the
construction will be directed to the rainwater harvesting pits for recharging the groundwater.
The overflow will be let into the storm water drain.
Additional run off due to change in land use after rainwater harvesting will be let into the
storm water drain after trapping silt and soil, as per general practice to prevent further
problems of flooding or water logging in the area.

2.9 What are the impacts of the proposal on the ground water? (Will there be tapping
of ground water; give the details of ground water table, recharging capacity, and
approvals obtained from competent authority, if any)

The project is likely to exert a net positive impact on the ground water environment of the
location.

Though, during construction phase, water for civil construction will be tapped from ground
on a short term basis. The rainwater harvesting is already practised as a part of existing
development at the site. Small quantity of drinking water requirement for the on-site labour
colony will be met from the MCGM supply.

MCGM water supply will be the prime source of water during operation phase of the project,
thus ground water will only be used to irrigate the landscape from existing bore wells. No
significant increase in irrigation requirement is envisaged.

2.10 What precautions/measures are taken to prevent the run-off from construction
activities polluting land & aquifers? (Give details of quantities and the measures
taken to avoid the adverse impacts)

At present a kachcha perimeter drain is made prior to any construction on the site. This drain
is channelized from the front of the plot with a square section concrete drain. Water
accumulated on the soil sump is locally drained in the perimeter drain using small capacity
pumps after particulate settlement. Excavation of foundation does not require any side
stabilization.

The same practice will be followed for the proposed construction activity too.

All minor trenching for gutter lines and shallow plumbing/cabling after final site grading will
be done under brick wall containment. The top soil with the humus will be stripped in a depth
of 1.5 feet and stored separately as practiced for existing development. The same shall be
used for soft landscape soil basins.

2.11 How is the storm water from within the site managed? (State the provisions made
to avoid flooding of the area, details of the drainage facilities provided along with a
site layout indication contour levels).

The entire rain water down take and open gutter system is based on 100 mm rainfall per
hour, for the entire open to sky areas on buildings or hardscape or soft cape. The plot has a
natural gradient of 3.0 m from east to west and discharge of storm water is designed as per
this gradient.

2.12. Will the deployment of construction labourers particularly in the peak period lead
to unsanitary conditions around the project site (Justify with proper explanation)

A well maintained labour colony exists at the Project site which has facilities and amenities
such as shared accommodation, electricity, clean drinking water, periodic medical checkup,
security, first aid, etc. These facilities will be provided and further maintained by the
construction contractor under a clause of contractual engagement with the project proponent
till completion of the proposed expansion. In order to maintain good hygienic condition to the
laborers, adequate numbers of toilets have been provided.

2.13. What on-site facilities are provided for the collection, treatment & safe disposal of
sewage? (Give details of the quantities of wastewater generation, treatment
capacities with technology & facilities for recycling and disposal).

A MBR and MBBR technology based STPs of 800 kld and 400 Kld capacities are
operational at the site. In addition, another SBR/MBBR technology based STP of 570 kld
will be constructed to treat the additional wastewater generating from the proposed project.
The entire amount of treated sewage will be reused for flushing and HVAC.

2.14 Give details of dual plumbing system if treated waste used is used for flushing of
toilets or any other use.

Dual plumbing is done in all the existing buildings of the project. The treated water is entirely
used for flushing and HVAC. Similarly, the new buildings also will have dual plumbing
system and the treated water will be used for flushing and HVAC as shown in the water
balance.

3. VEGETATION

3.1. Is there any threat of the project to the biodiversity? (Give a description of the
local ecosystem with its unique features, if any)

Few trees coming in the building foot print are required to be cu/transplanted .Permission
from tree authority will be obtained as per norms for the same. There are 918 tree exist on
the site.

3.2. Will the construction involve extensive clearing or modification of vegetation?


(Provide a detailed account of the trees & vegetation affected by the project)

As there is a building existing at the project site, there is no significant ground vegetation.
Existing trees near the periphery of the building shall be retained as such. Some trees
coming in the building foot print are required to be cu/transplanted .Permission from tree
authority will be obtained as per norms for the same. There are 918 tree exist on the site.

3.3. What are the measures proposed to be taken to minimize the likely impacts on
important site features (Give details of proposal for tree plantation, landscaping,
creation of water bodies etc along with a layout plan to an appropriate scale)

A former factory premises of Nirlon has been converted into a business park designed and
operated on the principles of sustainable development, The campus comprises approx. 4
acre traffic free central park, characterized by its terraced landscape. Phases I, II, III and IV
of NKP have already been LEED certified to Gold standard (Refer Annex IV).

4. FAUNA

4.1. Is there likely to be any displacement of fauna- both terrestrial and aquatic or
creation of barriers for their movement? Provide the details.

Most of the fauna associated with the site at present are species associated with the trees.
These fauna range from reptiles (garden lizards), mammals (order lagomorpha, rodentia)
and birds.

4.2. Any direct or indirect impacts on the avifauna of the area? Provide details.

Appropriate shelters for borers and hole dwellers, dangling nests for passerine species etc
have been created by the developer to increase the avifaunal habitat diversity in the project.

4.3. Prescribe measures such as corridors, fish ladders, etc. to mitigate adverse impacts
on fauna

The project is too small in size to impact the avifaunal diversity in a significant manner;
consecutively it does not necessitate measures greater than that mentioned in point 4.2
above.

5. AIR ENVIRONMENT
5.1. Will the project increase atmospheric concentration of gases & result in heat
islands? (Give details of background air quality levels with predicted values based
on dispersion models taking into account the increased traffic generation as a
result of the proposed constructions)

Atmospheric emission accountable on the project will comprise automobile emissions from
usage of cars. The background air quality of the campus is well within the limits. The
assessment of air quality is done every six months which is much within the limits.
5.2. What are the impacts on generation of dust, smoke, odorous fumes or other
hazardous gases? Give details in relation to all the meteorological parameters.

Handling of loose & powdery construction material like soil, sand and cement may lead to
dusty instances during high wind conditions. However, as the site is covered up to 5 M height
from the nearby properties and trees, such instances will be low and localised.

Transportation of construction material shall be done under covered condition. Spray of


water shall be done regularly on the unpaved surfaces of the project to subside dust.

There are no sensitive locations (hospitals, schools) in the vicinity of the project site. The site
has a background noise profile of a typical urban area.

No fumes or hazardous gases will be used at the site during construction or operation phase
of the project.

5.3. Will the proposal create shortage of parking space for vehicles? Furnish details of
the present level of transport infrastructure and measures proposed for
improvement including the traffic management at the entry & exit to the project
site.

The development will create need for parking for the occupants. Total car parking of 1200
numbers including 750 in basements and additional 450 in the new MLCP is proposed.
Exisitng car parking is for 1987 cars.

5.4. Provide details of the movement patterns with internal roads, bicycle tracks,
pedestrian pathways, footpaths etc., with areas under each category.

The Project provides 12 M wide internal Layout road with three/.four lanes (one lane
dedicated for bus service and separate two lane entry and exit plazas proposed to be
manned by trained security round the clock. Bus drop off points are provided next to the
buildings to avoid traffic congestion. The parking is allotted to the occupants eliminating
problems of miss-parking and parking outside the lots. Curbed pathways have been provided
along the roads for pedestrian traffic.

5.5 Will there be significant increase in traffic noise & vibrations? Give details of the
Sources and the measures proposed for mitigation of the above.

About 30-40 trucks during transportation of excavated earth and about 10-15 trucks per day
during construction will come to the site for supply of construction material. However, this
traffic will gradually taper down after major concrete structural activity of the project is over.
Tail pipe emissions and engine noise from the construction traffic may cause temporary
nuisance to the nearby locations. However, this will be localised & short term. All such traffic
will be confined to day time.

5.6. What will be the impact of DG sets & other equipment on noise levels & vibration
in & ambient air quality around the project site? Provide details.

Based on the power load demands, 7W +1SB additional DG backup of 2250 kvA will be
provided. Additional dedicated 3 DG for clients are also being provided. The DG will be
acoustically enclosed type with noise level < 75 db(A) at 1m distance as per CPCB norms.
The DG will run on low sulphur HSD. A naturally aspirated, insulated stack will be provided to
facilitate dispersion of flue gases. The DG will be tuned by the vendor to meet with the NOx
and SO2 emission norms prescribed under EP Act 1986.

The total DG load of the Knowledge Park now will be 49 MW compared to earlier 28.5 MW.

6. AESTHETICS

6.1. Will the proposed constructions in any way result in the obstruction of a view,
scenic amenity or landscapes? Are these considerations taken into account by the
proponents?

The area of the proposed project is urban with tall residential structures around it. There are
no specific scenic landscape features in the vicinity of the project.

6.2. Will there be any adverse impacts from new constructions on the existing
structures? What are the considerations taken into account?

Sites of excavation for the project are away from the existing structure to cause any adverse
effect. Foundation design for the project has been carried out per IS codes, adequately
ensuring transfer of the building loads vertically down.

6.3. Whether there are any local considerations of urban form & urban design
influencing the design criteria? They may be explicitly spelt out.

There are no local traditional patterns or facades which have made any significant impact on
the design of the project.
6.4. Are there any anthropological or archaeological sites or artefacts nearby? State if
any other significant features in the vicinity of the proposed site have been
considered.

Kanheri caves, the nearest important archaeological site is approximately 8.5 km away from
the project, too far to be impacted in any manner by the proposed project.

7. SOCIO-ECONOMIC ASPECTS

7.1. Will the proposal result in any changes to the demographic structure of local
population? Provide the details.

The proposed project is a part of commercial project. It is fairly difficult to predict the effect
of the project over demographic of the area, as also it is difficult to ascertain the
demography of the background area.

7.2. Give details of the existing social infrastructure around the proposed project.

The project is in an urban locality of Mumbai. Educational institutions, medical facilities,


places of worship, market places for daily and lifestyle needs, places of entertainment,
necessary domestic service base, etc. is readily available in the locality.

7.3. Will the project cause adverse effects on local communities, disturbance to sacred
sites or other cultural values? What are the safeguards proposed?

There are no sacred sites or distinct cultural values ascribable to the site which may be affected by
the proposed project.

8. BUILDING MATERIALS

8.1. May involve the use of building materials with high-embodied energy. Are the
construction materials produced with energy efficient processes? (Give details of
energy conservation measures in the selection of building materials and their
energy efficiency)

The Siporex blocks (AAC blocks) proposed to be used in the project for wall construction
non-load bearing partition construction purpose are made with 68% recycled material
(flyash-post industrial waste). Usage of such blocks containing recycled material will
account for usage of low embodied energy material in the project. High performance
glazing (Double glazing unit) has been proposed. It has approximately 12% recycled
content. The high performance glazing has a low solar heat gain coefficient, thereby
reducing the amount of solar radiation in the interior, thereby reducing cooling load, thereby
reducing electricity bills during operational time of the project.
8.2. Transport and handling of materials during construction may result in pollution,
noise & public nuisance. What measures are taken to minimize the impacts?

About 30-40 trucks will come to the construction site for transport of excavated earth initially.
However, this traffic will gradually tail down after major concrete structural activity of the
project is over. Tailpipe emissions and engine noise from the construction traffic may cause
temporary nuisance to the nearby locations. However, this will be localised & short term. All
such traffic will be confined to day time.
Handling of lose & powdery construction material like soil, sand and cement may lead to
dusty instances during high wind conditions. However, as the site is barricaded from the
nearby properties, such instances will be low and localised.

Transportation of construction material shall be done under covered condition. Spray of


water shall be done regularly on the unpaved surfaces of the project to subside dust.

8.3. Are recycled materials used in roads and structures? State the extent of savings
achieved?

Waste construction material from the project will be re-used in road construction. Total
amount of broken concrete structures, brick wastage and wasted mortar generated from
plastering operation will be collected from the site and stored in a designated place. The
material will be crushed, aggregated and mixed with other road sub-base construction
material. Paver blocks contain fly ash will be used for road.

8.4. Give details of the methods of collection, segregation & disposal of the garbage
generated during the operation phases of the project.

Solid waste generated from the project will be segregated. Biodegradable solid waste shall
be composted on-site in the existing organic waste convertor, and used as manure for initial
landscaping. A cemented, covered bin of 1-2 tons capacity with corrugated roof will be used
to store the garbage during monsoon. The garbage will be cleared in quick successions to
minimize fly and rodents infestation. Non bio degradable waste will be disposed off at the
nearest sanitary landfill of MCGM.

9 ENERGY CONSERVATION

9.1. Give details of the power requirements, source of supply, backup source etc. What
is the energy consumption assumed per square foot of built-up area? How have
you tried to minimize energy consumption?

The power requriement after the expansion will be approx. 49 MW


Energy conservation at the building level has been attempted by the following two
approaches:

(a) better solar orientation, shade and natural illumintion designn and better horizontal and
vertical aspiration of the building units, thus minimising the need for day time illumination,
energy consumption for building & unit level ventilation, and maximising ambient heat
radiation by the buiilding skin.

(b) utilization of energy efficient electrical fixtures, switches and appliances. All the common
area illumination shall be done by LEDs/CFLs. Regenerative type elevators available in the
market shal be installed. All large volume illuminations such as gate complex, etc. shall be
done with energy efficient HPSV lamps.

9.2. What type of and capacity of power back-up do you plan to provide?

7 W+1SB DGs of 2250 kvA for clients and common area load and 3 Nos of 2250 KVA DG
dedicated for client use will be provided in addition to the existing standby at the project
site.

9.3. What are the characteristics of the glass you plan to use? Provide specifications of
its characteristics related to both short wave and long wave radiation?

The project proposes to use Double glazed Unit with U-value not exceeding 2.8 W/m2 ºC
and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient not exceeding 0.28, VLT 49%for long wave. Minimum glass
will be used for the display requirement of glass facades.

9.4. What passive solar architectural features are being used in the building? Illustrate
the applications made in the proposed project.

The building orientation has been designed to minimise solar heat gain through the skin of
the building and to maximise the light penetration to reduce day time illumination of the
common areas such as staircases, corridors, parking, etc. Shade constructed surfaces on
the site with landscape features and utilization of high-reflectance materials for hard scape
are proposed to minimise solar heat gain in the buildings. High albedo material for hard
scrapes (i.e. roof, roads, sidewalks, etc.) with vegetated surfaces such as vegetated roofs
are also proposed as passive solar architecture measures in the project.

9.5. Does the layout of streets & buildings maximize the potential for solar energy
devices? Have you considered the use of street lighting, emergency lighting and
solar hot water systems for use in the building complex? Substantiate with details.

The roofs of existing buildings are heat insulated and tiled with light and heat reflecting tiles
to reduce heat absorption into the buildings. The vertical surfaces have white painted
masonary or self-cooling tiles as outer skin. The same practice will be continued in the
proposed buildings too.

9.6. Is shading effectively used to reduce cooling/heating loads? What principles have
been used to maximize the shading of Walls on the East and the West and the
Roof? How much energy saving has been effected?

Building shape and orientation has been designed to pose least direct solar exposure to
reduce heat gain by the building envelope. Shading and louvers and building external
ventilation shafts will be provided for shading to achieve lower cooling expenses.

9.7. Do the structures use energy-efficient space conditioning, lighting and mechanical
systems? Provide technical details. Provide details of the transformers and motor
efficiencies, lighting intensity and air-conditioning load assumptions? Are you using
CFC and HCFC free chillers? Provide specifications.

A construction of this size is unlikely to alter the overall albedo of the area and pose as a
significant sunshade or wind barrier to cause any local micro-climatic change.

Urban heat island is a large scale phenomenon. The contribution to the effect will be
miniscule and insignificant by a project of this size. Mumbai being a well swept coastal city is
far less susceptible to heat island effect than any other land locked city.

The project is also not envisaged to alter the atmospheric boundary layer conditions in any
significant manner.

9.8. What are the likely effects of the building activity in altering the micro-climates?
Provide a self assessment on the likely impacts of the proposed construction on
creation of heat island & inversion effects?

The buildings as stand-alone development are not likely to alter the wind pattern, solar
insolation, albedo and ground shading to significantly alter the micro climate of the area. The
building heights are too low to interfere with the vertical boundary layer phenomenon and
effect the atmospheric inversion in any manner.

9.9. What are the thermal characteristics of the building envelope? (a) roof; (b)
external walls; and (c) fenestration? Give details of the material used and the U-
values or the R values of the individual components.

1. Roof = RCC 8-9 inch slab with 3 Inches of over deck roof insulation of R-15.
U value = 0.352 W/m2 ºC (0.062 Btu/hr.ft2.ºF )
2. External Walls= AAC block walls.
U value= U factor: 0.329 W/m2 ºC (0.058 Btu/hr.ft2.ºF )
3. Fenestration= Performance glass DGU glazed window.
Glass U value= 2.8 W/m2 K, SHGC =Less than 0.28, VLT = 40-50%

9.10. What precautions & safety measures are proposed against fire hazards? Furnish
details of emergency plans.

All safety measures as suggested in the fire approval are in place for the buildings which
have come up already. The building and surroundings have an extensive network of fire
hydrants’ and sprinklers. Handheld fire extinguishers are available at critical locations. The
building is protected by heat and smoke detectors integrated to building management
systems.

9.11. If you are using glass as wall material provides details and specifications including
emissive and thermal characteristics.

The project proposes to use Double glazed Unit with U-value not exceeding 2.8 W/m2 ºC
and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient not exceeding 0.28.

9.12. What is the rate of air infiltration into the building? Provide details of how you are
mitigating the effects of infiltration

The building is expected to undergo about 15 air changes per hour for all naturally aspirated
open common areas such as corridors, lobbies, stair cases, basements etc. This rate will be
higher in the upper stories of the buildings due to higher wind velocities. For combustible
zones, air changes are 30% higher than ASHRAE.

9.13. To what extent the non-conventional energy technologies are utilised in the overall
energy consumption? Provide details of the renewable energy technologies used.

Some rooftop solar heaters provided for hot water.

10. Environment Management Plan

A comprehensive Environment Management Plan for the project addressing mitigation


measures for activity to be undertaken during the construction and operation throughout the
life cycle of the project is in place and practised. The EMP will be a part of EIA.
