How Building would work and what would it work with technology Kritika arora 36 Solar Harvesting -To save energy, lights throughout the building are equipped with sensors that detect when a room is empty or when sunlight is sufficient, in which case the sensors would trigger the lights to shut off. green roof with sedums and other plants allows a reduction in runoff. The addition features recycled content and locally sourced materials, along with CO2 sensors that trigger a ventilation system to maximize energy savings when spaces are Unoccupied. The interior is fitted with CO2, VOC and humidity sensors; the heating and cooling are provided by seawater heat pumps powered by hydroelectricity. A compact structured plumbing system with low-flow fixtures and an on-demand hot-water circulator pump reduces water consumption ultimate goal of a superior indoor environment for the health and well-being of its employees
