LEED On: T3 Terminal at Indira Gandhi International Airport [video]

Joe Crea

Commercial aviation plays a vital role in economic globalization, but in the process it also affects the environment.

To minimize its carbon footprint, Delhi International Airport Limited set out to certify its state-of-the-art Terminal 3 at Indira Gandhi International Airport as LEED Gold. Terminal 3 is the world’s eighth largest airport terminal, covering 5.5 million square feet.

Energy and water was conserved by maximizing natural light, integrating a building management system to optimize operations, harvesting rainwater and installing an on-site solar power plant and sewage treatment plant.

Going beyond these efforts to even higher performance, Delhi International Airport is aiming for LEED Platinum and greater benchmarking efficiency with a LEED performance score in the Arc platform.
