Architect B.V. Doshi, Vastu Shilpa Foundation
The low cost Aranya township at Indore was planned to provide affordable habitat for 60,000 people. It used a site and service approach to serve primarily the economically weaker section of the society within a balanced matrix of other income groups. Special emphasis was laid on designing the layout in relation to infrastructure networks. A fresh approach to infrastructure design was evolved by HPCE to enhance economic viability and performance by using new design approaches, methods and computer aided models. The techniques developed as well as the planning and design norms established were ultimately adopted as the guidelines for other such projects in India. The project won Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1995.

HPCE did both infrastructure planning and structural designs for this township of 1,200 houses just outside Bombay. A fair proportion of the population of the township was from the economically weaker section of the society and the challenge was to give quality shelter and infrastructure at affordable prices. This was achieved through judicious mix of incomes and landuses for internal cross subsidisations, coupled with efficient layouts, good infrastructure planning and low cost technologies.

Development of Kharghar, New Bombay

Client City Industrial Development Corporation, Maharastra
Architect B.V. Doshi, Vastu Shilpa Foundation
In this major development of New Bombay for 500,000 persons, commercial and institutional facilities, HPCE did the infrastructure planning and engineering designs for land reclamation, roads, water supply, sewerage and storm drainage. The existing physical features of the site were exploited with constructive topography management as an engineering tool to reduce the infrastructure costs, raise low lying pockets and avoid pumping costs. The flow paths and waterbodies created for storm drainage and tidal backflows formed 'green' paths around which the city was planned.

Infrastructure planning and engineering design inputs to the masterplanning of the new business district in the prime location of Bombay suburb close to the airport. The engineering inputs on this 200 hectare site covered land reclamation, roads, water supply, sewerage and storm drainage for a site on the creek affected by the tides.

Client City Industrial Development Corporation, Maharastra
Architect B.V. Doshi, Vastu Shilpa Foundation
The Meghdoot Urban Centre is an extension township of Nagpur with a view to accommodate the future growth of 1 million people together with the social and economic infrastructure. HPCE undertook overall urban infrastructure planning for the project, covering roads and pavements, storm drainage, sewerage, water supply, power and streetlighting, earthworks and soft landscaping. The proposed drainage paths, green areas of the 'root-zone' treatment plants and the associated water bodies provide the organisational structure around which the masterplan was developed.

HPCE gave infrastructure planning inputs to a comprehensive development strategy prepared for the city of Jalgaon. Broad approach and standards were laid down in this master planning exercise for each component of urban infrastructure: roads, water supply, sewerage and storm drainage. A general check list for good infrastructure practice was prepared to help the municipality evaluate the future plan proposals for Jalgoan.

Pearl City Development, Al-Khiran, Kuwait

Client Buro Happold Limited, UK for La’ala’ Al-Kuwait Real Estate Company K.S.C.

This new island city for 1,200 families together with the ancillary infrastructure is developed on land reclaimed from sea. The Coastal Engineering group of Buro Happold Limited did the masterplanning and infrastructure development.

HPCE did the sewerage and storm drainage design of the development. A flat, sandy site at sea level with high subsoil water level and tidal influences posed interesting design challenges. Flushing and discharges at flat gradients were achieved with computer modelling developed by HPCE to avoid under water excavations and to minimise pumping stations. The reclamation of land for the island is complete and the drainage, roads and other infrastructures are now under construction.

Amba Township, Adalaj, Ahmedabad

Project Amba Township, Adalaj, Ahmedabad
Client Dada Bhagwan Foundation

This is a new spiritual township on the outskirts of Ahmedabad for 1500 families as well as for large annual congregations for religious discourse. In the first stage about a third of the settlement is being developed.

In the absence of any significant physical infrastructure development in the area, the settlement is planned with self sufficient services for water, storm drainage, ground water recharge and sewage treatment. The initial infrastructure development will be followed by housing and public building construction.
