The existing housing units at the site were demolished months ago and the the foundation work for the buildings was taken up after TNHB availed environmental clearance from the state environment impact assessment authority on December 1. Block 1 and 2 shall have 14 floors each, while block 3 and 4 will have 15 floors each.
The sewage from the buildings will be connected to the underground drainage network and sewerage from the blocks is proposed to be recycled and used for watering the green space proposed on the site. Trichy corporation will be supplying 213 KLD to meet construction requirements.
The facility is estimated to generate 1,242 kg of waste per day of which non-biodegradable waste will be recycled through scrap vendors. As for amenities, the TNHB complex will get green space with play area for children, community hall and likely a library.
“The project is being taken up under Tamil Nadu government servants rental housing scheme and will be utilised as housing quarters for various department officials. The work is expected to be completed in two years,” a TNHB official said.
