Gurugram to house a green R&D Centre ‘e-novation’ along SPR

Gurugram: The city is going to have an ‘e-novation Centre’ an R&D corporate hub, exclusively dedicated to research and development, training and innovation. The privately-owned state-of-the art infrastructure is coming up in the institutional area in Sector 75 along the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR).

Keeping in mind increasing pollution, the centre has nearly 75% open space with extensive green cover, water recycling, waste management, and renewable energy on the campus. The developers say the centre is self-sufficient to establish a fertile environment for the corporates, IT companies, institutions and organisations. Being built in over 12 acres, the centre is offering facilities for setting up accelerators, centres of excellence, labs, IT projects, ITeS units, and training centres.

“Gurugram has begun to give competition to Bangalore as a preferred destination for R&D and tech companies.  Till recently, the focus for R&D in India was in the south – Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune. However, these cities are facing their own challenges now, while the plethora of opportunities and the huge untapped talent pool in the NCR is enabling the NCR to become an R&D hub,” said Satya Priya Yadav, managing director, RSP Developers that is developing the centre.

The facility is a LEED Gold rated centre, (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design green certification for building design & construction).

The BMW Group has already set up an automobile training centre in the first block of e-novation centre, which comprises six blocks.  The centre offers built-to-suit office space, single floors, multiple floors, blocks, standalone buildings, and residential facilities for walk-to-work

“The e-novation Centre is very strategically located owing to the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority’s (GMDA) initiatives to develop the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) along the lines of Golf Course Road. The planned construction of a cloverleaf to connect the SPR with the Dwarka Expressway, providing an alternate access to the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport, which is currently 28 kilometres away via NH-8, will prove beneficial to the area,” said Yadav.
