The L&T Knowledge City at Vadodara in Gujarat is the hub of several key businesses of the L&T Group. The Power business, Mid & Downstream Hydrocarbon, L&T Technology Services and the engineering joint venture L&T-Sargent & Lundy operate out of the facility.
The 1,25,419-square metre Knowledge City campus offers single point design engineering and development solutions for core sector industries. The campus takes a lead in green initiatives and is recognised for its sustainability efforts. Of the five office buildings on the campus, two have been certified as ‘green’ buildings.
The water conservation effort alone sees recycling of around 200 kilo-litres of water per day and zero liquid discharge. Over 11,000 conventional lighting units were replaced by LED luminaires, reducing energy consumption to a considerable extent. The campus handles e-waste disposal in an environment-friendly manner through authorised e-waste recyclers. It segregates solid waste to ensure proper disposal.
