Winners Announced for Honeywell Smart Building Awards in India
December 02, 2016
Shri Rao Inderjit Singh, minister and minister of state at the Ministry of Urban Development and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, was Honeywell’s chief guest at the ceremony and recognized the winners. Addressing the building owners, he said, “Government initiatives like the 100 Smart Cities Mission and AMRUT have already initiated building a better infrastructure for citizens. These can be used as a nucleus to take the journey forward with equal participation from the private sector. We need to propagate further the work that Honeywell is doing; you cannot have smart cities without smart buildings. I congratulate Honeywell and the winners of the Smart Building Awards.”
Ten other buildings in New Delhi, Mohali, Chandigarh, Gurgaon, Ahmedabad, and Kancheepuram were also named as the smartest buildings in their respective market segments, including hotels, hospitals, schools, retail, airport, commercial multi-tenant and single-tenant offices, residential facilities and public sector buildings. The building applicants were evaluated using the scoring criteria from the Honeywell Smart Building Score™, a first-of-its-kind global tool for measuring building smartness.
“It is encouraging to see the interest and competitive spirit among the builder community and facility managers,” said Vikas Chadha, president of Honeywell India. “The number of applications we received strengthens our commitment to make more and more buildings green, safe, and productive.”
