Orange County Group has constructed over 700 flats in a sustainable manner and now they aim to build ‘India’s 1st sustainable Township

On the occasion of Environment Day, EvoGreen City, developed by Orange County, a sustainable real-estate group is all set to mark the beginning of the construction of the World’s Largest Stepwell at EvoGreen City, Dehu, Pune on Thursday 6th June at 4 pm.   

Currently, Jaipur is home to India’s largest step well, Abhaneri and the developer plans to build a 7-times bigger stepwell in Dehu with 20m depth and a surface area of 8,000 sqm (around 2 acres). The stepwell has an enormous water capacity of 9 Cr. liters.

The Orange County developers have been working in the field of ‘Sustainable construction’ for the past 18 years and have constructed many independent sustainable towers. One of their buildings in Pashan, Pune has also been mentioned in the Limca Book of Records back in 2011, for being India’s first building that operates entirely on renewable energy resources. Former President of India, APJ Abdul Kalam was one of the dignitaries to pay a visit to this site.

The developers utilize quicklime as an alternative for cement for construction purposes which adds the advantage of a decline in the internal temperature by 7-8 degrees. They have constructed over 700 flats in a sustainable manner and now they aim to build ‘India’s 1st sustainable Township.’  

“We have partnered with German architects, scholars and prestigious universities like Fraunhofer University renowned for its research in sustainable and renewable energy resources. Karlsruher Institute of Applied Sciences is another stakeholder that will be working for unharmful air-conditioning in the commercial space of the township. Along with planting more than 2 lakh trees around the vicinity of the township merely in the past five years, we will also be inculcating the Waldorf schooling system in the township. The objective of building the stepwell is to operate the entire township with the water stored and treated from it for ages to come, ”said Sandeep Sonigra, Managing Partner, Orange County Group.

The Bhoomi pooja will be done at the hands of famous actress Sonalee Kulkarni and famous water and river conservationist Shailaja Deshpande. The construction of the stepwell is estimated to take around 3 years dividing it into 2 phases.
