Webinar on "GRIHA For Large Development"
The webinar on 'GRIHA LD' talked about the modifications that have been made in the new version of GRIHA for Large Development, that is, GRIHA LD v3. The overall structuring of the rating, along with a detailed explanation of all the sections (carrying capacity and self-sufficiency, site planning, energy, water, waste, social, transport) was explained to the participants through the webinar. The overall rating has been aligned with the format of the main GRIHA rating system – with higher scoring denoting the better rating. The key changes in the updated rating system are as follows: Resource Impact Section has been renamed as Self Sufficiency. This will enable the projects to cater to the energy and water requirement of the people. Therefore, the higher the self-sufficiency, the better the score project gets.
As per the latest updations, no points will now be awarded for mandatory appraisals. The overall rating bandwidths have been revised as per the AHP survey conducted among different stakeholders from the industry. The addition of new section on sustainable materials and a special emphasis on safety, social and infrastructure of the project have also been well addressed in the new version of GRIHA LD.
