Kochi Metro’s Kakkanad extension gets Centre’s green signal Kochi Metro's Kakkanad extension gets Centre's green signal

Budget 2021 | Kochi Metro’s Kakkanad extension gets Centre’s green signal

The Centre has accorded the green signal for Kochi Metro’s long-overdue 11.20-km-long Kakkanad (Infopark) extension, with ₹1,957 crore being earmarked in Monday’s Union Budget.

The project cost includes the expenses for land acquisition and taxes. The State Government had sanctioned the project in 2019.

The phase-two extension to Kakkanad that will take off from Jawaharlal Nehru International (JLN) Stadium and terminate at Infopark, will thus provide a metro-rail link between the city hub and the expanding IT hub.

It will also establish metro connectivity from the city to the district headquarters, residential and industrial areas, and the SEZ located in Kakkanad. The plan is to complete the project that will seamlessly integrate with the 27-km-long Aluva-Tripunithura phase-one metro corridor, will be commissioned in another four years, Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL), sources said.

There will be 11 elevated stations in the proposed metro corridor.

Once realised, the corridor will also provide city connectivity to Silverline – the semi-high speed rail corridor proposed from Thiruvananthapuram to Kasargod, which has proposed its Ernakulam Station near Infopark.

Both the mass rapid transport systems will most likely converge at the same premises or have a common station, so that commuters would not have to depend on alternative modes of transport while switching from Silverline to metro-rail and back. The metro extension will also have link to Water Metro’s Kakkanad and Infopark jetties.

Preparatory works

The KMRL has already begun preparatory works to carve out space for a metro viaduct along the 30-metre-wide Seaport-Airport Road, from Collectorate Junction. Land acquisition, for which paper works is getting over, will shortly begin to widen the JLN Stadium-Collectorate Jn. stretch into a 22-m-wide stretch.

The KMRL, which is implementing the metro’s phase one extension from Pettah to Tripunithura would execute the Kakkanad extension too. The Aluva-Pettah corridor was implemented by DMRC.

Kakkanad is a prime location in Cochin where most of the IT operations happen. Infopark, one of the largest IT hubs in the state has opened doors to many businesses in the area. Not just IT companies, Kakkanad and its nearby areas are surrounded with shopping destinations, food joints and more. The area is hence ideal to live for all the activity happening there and ease of living.

Water Management–“An Elixir to good life and living “ Water Management–“An Elixir to good life and living “

Water is growing to be a precious commodity day by day for sustaining life and the environment. Ecological balance to economic development and everything in between, water has an indelible role to play and its equitable management is the need of the day. With water resources facing unforeseen challenges, the importance of water security has been listed as one of the major sustainable goals 2020 by the UN.

Global scenario is such that, due to rising sea levels we foresee intrusion of sea water to land, thereby decreasing the availability of fresh water. This scarcity combined with higher treatment costs in the realm of a community living scenario where chances of overuse, abuse and misuse maybe higher calls for holistic approach towards water management system.

In the wake of the importance of water, the UN has declared access to water as a basic human right and the Constitution of India under Article 21, which guarantees right to life encompasses within its ambit the right to get access to water.Upholding the UN and constitutional directive and the increasing social, economic, environmental relevance of water mandates its prudent usage, recycling and conservation.

A picture perfect illustration of water paradigm and its significance lies at SFS Tranquil apartments in Kottayam, a luxury apartment project by premium builder in Kerala, SFS Homes. Water management here primarily involves having multiple sources of water ,its collection, treatment ,storage, effective distribution, monitoring of usage ,conservation, treatment of waste water, reuse of water and groundwater recharge. In order to avoid fluctuation in the availability of quality water, the apartment has adhered to alternate sources of water to meet the demand in a sustainable manner. Water sources include municipal water, water from premises as groundwater, rainwater varies with the vagaries of seasons. As the quality of water gets depleted and denser in summer season, treatment of water becomes more difficult. Aggregating multiple water sources helps in meeting the demand for quality water in such situations.

The SFS tranquil apartment project is designed as an off shore structure by lifting the ground level higher and facilitating the basement space for ample storage of water. This acts as a buffer to control fluctuations and ensures smooth availability of water. The treatment system has been established after a study spanning at least two years, covering all the seasons. This ensures robust system of water treatment with least cost.

Rainwater harvesting system at SFS Tranquil is a great boon for apartment occupants. Kottayam receives more than 3 meters of annual rainfall, recording an increase in recent times. Rain water collected in the raw water tank gets shifted periodically making space for collecting the next downpour. This enhances the system capability to collect rain water. Leveraging the change in rainfall pattern which is a bounty of nature, abundant and free of cost, has ensured smart usage of water. This has significantly resulted in the reduction of water charges for individual apartments.

Accountability of water by individual water meters in the apartments has a cascading effect on water charges as it not only encourages water saving mentality but also discourages wastage of water. It has proven and long lasting benefits of reducing water consumption by 30 percent. Pertinently water saved will also help in reducing the cost of waste water treatment (STP)

The presence of water saving faucets which drastically reduce water consumption has a pivotal role in reducing water consumption on a long term basis.

A fully fledged waste water treatment plant with power saving features at SFS Tranquil flats is a brilliant waste water system that facilitates custodial uses like toilet flushing, irrigation, landscaping, gardening and so on. Usage of water conserving irrigation systems like drip and sprinkler will help in reducing every client’s water bills. The treated water can help in recharging the ground water too. High Efficiency water pumps reduces power consumption and adds to saving water costs. All these features will ensure 30 percent reduction in water costs at SFS Tranquil in comparison to conventional buildings or independent homes and villas.

Following a proper green building rating system like IGBC ,GRIHA ,BEE , LEED etc helps in establishing a system in the initial design stage itself. Furthermore, water audit at intervals helps the apartment owner or tenant in fine tuning the system. SFS TRANQUIL has adapted the Multi dwelling GREEN HOME rating of INDIAN GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL, for getting the pre certification for green building rating.

Water usage in common area is also is also to be monitored using sub metering .A  professional team of architects,landscape and sustainability consultants,MEP consultants ensured a highly efficient water management system is in place in this apartment project by SFS homes. Maintenance of these systems by trained staff under the supervision of the owners association is also a key factor to ensure long term benefits for years to come. In times of COVID-19 it is imperative to ensure sustainable solutions that reinvent our lifestyles to the criticality of the hour through better hygiene, water security and a safe environment. Even whilst working from home in today’s scenario, a home filled with amenities, clean and fresh water supply makes SFS Tranquil apartment project a safe haven to live in central Travancore region.

Individual water metering benefits Individual water metering benefits

Water scarcity is big issue in India, especially in apartments with huge water requirements. Residents in apartments at metros are finding it very difficult many times to manage water connections and have to deal with water problems frequently, especially during the summer.

Many apartments in cities have a single water connection which has to be managed by all the residents living in the building. This is an irksome issue because even if one resident overuses the water supply, all the residents have to bear the bill, thus causing a huge loss to both water and money. Also, without individual meters, it is difficult to track over usage and there will not be a sense of responsibility among residents to keep an eye on water usage. In many places, the apparent shortages are met with delivery from third party water tankers, and the residents have their pockets torn from paying too many water bills and still not getting enough water for use.

Hindrances for adopting individual water meters

  • Once the project is completed and ready to move, laying pipes and plumbing systems for individual water meters is a cumbersome process and wastage of money.
  • Residents are happy to share the water bill than paying extra for individual water meters which may be huge in the initial stage, but they ignore that they will benefit in the long run.
  • It is easy for developers and builders to install a common water meter than individual water meters.

Benefits of having Individual Water Meter Connection

Getting an individual water meter has multiple benefits and is a must have in all apartments, and here are the reasons for the same.

  1. When installed at the source, water meters will ensure that only the correct amount of water that is supplied by the contractor flows in and will eliminate any proxy entries that flows in at night.
  2. The overall costs and consumption are reduced by 30 to 40 percent on sub-metering water in apartment complexes.
  3. This process will greatly reduce the need for third party water tankers and will reduce the cost of monthly maintenance.
  4. Individual water meters will ensure that you only pay for the water you use. So if a flat contains more occupants than others, they would have to pay more for consumption than flats with less occupants.
  5. It will raise awareness about water leakage and conservation of water.
  6. Having stop valves for every apartment will make sure that during any maintainence works or water leakage, the water supply would be stopped to that particular apartment only and not everyone suffers out of it.
  7. Water meters will dispel confusion of per square feet based maintenance collection.

Design your Home Office Design your Home Office

Having an office space at home comes with several benefits – there’s no commute, you achieve better work-life balance, and you can design your area as you please. Whether your home office is an actual room designated for your professional life, or merely a quiet corner for you to pay bills and draw out your schedule for the day, your space deserves more than just a metal table and chair. Here are five simple and easy tips to help you create and design a practical, yet charming home office.

Location is important

As is with buying a home, one of the most important aspects is getting the location right. For first-time homebuyers, it is important your new abode is close to your place of work and your child’s school, located in the right neighbourhood, and within proximity to restaurants, cafes, and other entertainment facilities. All this for the sake of convenience. Similarly, your home office will be a space that you will most likely be spending a lot of time in. Everyone has different conditions that maximise concentration and productivity. While some prefer to be in the thick of activity, others prefer to work in peace and quiet. Finding the right location in your home will help you come up with better home office designs.

Don’t sacrifice form for function

When looking for home office furniture, look for items that are both attractive, but functional. Remember to pick out a chair and desk that are comfortable, especially if you will be spending a lot of time in your home office. Consider your workflow and arrange items accordingly. This will help you with storage, particularly if your home office is in a smaller space. Most importantly, ensure you get plenty of light – either natural sunlight pouring in through a window or sufficient artificial lighting. These home office ideas will not only brighten up the look and feel of your home but will also help with your productivity.

Decorate appropriately

One of the biggest advantages of having a home office is being able to design and decorate it to suit your tastes. Start with painting your walls with a striking colour that doesn’t remind you of office grey, beige or white. For some, it could be a vibrant hue of orange or green. Or maybe you prefer something subtle like a pale pink or baby blue. Whatever your choice, make sure your home office design ideas include colours that will stimulate and inspire you.

As for accessories and furniture, you can opt to match the décor of the rest of your home or choose something completely different to distinguish your home office from the rest of the rooms. Choose accessories like pen stands, storage shelves, wastepaper baskets, etc. depending on the size of your desk and room. Choose minimalist designs if you have a smaller space, or go for more homey accessories if your home office is in a larger room – use your child’s painting as wall art, hang up inspirational quotes, etc. Here are some home décor trends you can try.

Give yourself a view

When thinking of unique home office ideas, begin with positioning your desk the right way. Place your desk in such a way that you aren’t just staring at a blank wall. If you have a window in the room, place your desk in front of it, so you get as much natural light as possible. If there are no windows, ensure your desk faces the door, so you won’t feel claustrophobic and will have something to look at when you glance up at your computer. Alternatively, you could also place a painting or a family picture on your window-less wall to give you something to look at.

Stay organised

The most successful home office design ideas make efficient use of space, particularly when there are no extra square feet to spare. Instead of occupying floor space with cupboards and cabinets, hang floating shelves on your walls to get rid of papers, and office equipment such as WiFi routers, printers, etc. Invest in a desk that comes with drawers so you can use each drawer for your notes, files and folders, cables, etc. This way you will be saving on space as well as ensuring your desk does not become cluttered and messy.

We are sure you are inspired to try some of these home office ideas. All that’s left for you to do is buy your dream home to implement them. Head over to SFS Homes today to find a superior home for you and your family!
