Architect behind Odisha airport

Ludhiana: A Ludhiana-based architect is the man behind the design of seven airports in the country. The Jharsuguda Airport, Odisha’s second airport which was inaugurated by the Prime Minister three days ago, has been designed by architect Kanav Khosla.
“The airport is special as it has the minimal impact on environment. This is one of the greenest airports in the tier-3 airports in the country as many eco-friendly features have been added to the airport,” he says.
“The airport has been designed to require least amount of air-conditioning with features like cavity-windows, making use of the optimum ambient light requiring least use of lighting. Water used at the airport is also recycled which can be used for irrigation purposes, apart from several other eco-friendly construction material, including fly-ash bricks,” he added.
