Structures: Flat slab with pour strips were designed incorporating temperature analysis to avoid the expansion joints and to give clear soffit by avoiding double column grid. Subsoil drainage under the raft and footing were provided to control the water pressure acting on it. Infrastructure: Storm water system was designed separately for roof and surface water. All storm water from the roof was collected in rain-water harvesting tank and re-used for landscape & HVAC makeup. Surface storm water by means of network of drains & pipes was collected in external trench. Portion of surface storm water drain discharging towards the road side was discharged to soak-pit designed as per site condition. Soil permeability test was carried out in co-ordination with architect and surveyor to finalize the strategic location and number of soak pits. While the remaining portion of surface storm water was diverted towards the beach and designed to drain the water into the sea via a combination of soak pits and surface runoff.
