New Airport terminal to cut carbon footprint

Trichy: The new two-tier terminal building of Trichy international airport is designed in such a way that it will have less carbon footprint. Right from its construction, the materials used and waste management would entirely be eco-friendly. Clearance for the building from the department of environment and forests was obtained a month ago.
A six-member committee comprising France-based Project Management Consultant (PMC) M/S EGIS and AAI officials made a site visit before releasing the master plan of the building at the airport here on Friday. PMC has designed over 100 airports globally.
Stating that the new terminal building is designed to reflect the local art and architecture, joint general manager - architecture AAI Charul Shukla said that the building would be registered with Greha — a non-profit society for research on environmental development, habitat design and architecture — for green building certification.
