Cement ('Ambuja Silicate')
To start at the very beginning the cement that has gone into making The Orchid an eco friendly Hotel is absolutely environment friendly. This cement, PPC (Portland Pozzalana Cement) contains 15-20% fly ash, as compared to OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement).
QED (Quite Easily Done)
We at The Orchid are not guilty of depleting the topsoil of the earth! Our internal partitions are made from QED wall panels, which are made from fertilizer waste, instead of red bricks, which are made from the topsoil of the earth. That's not all, these wall panels are reusable too and will save us the trouble of curing, plastering and recuring.
AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete)
Another environment friendly alternative used by us is AAC. We use this material for the external walling and the wet walling structure of our Hotel. AAC is eco friendly as it is manufactured using approximately 60% fly ash. It is the brick substitute, building material of the future, having excellent thermal insulation properties and a better sound absorption coefficient than ordinary bricks.
The external walls and wet wall structures of The Orchid are also made from Siporex. Siporex is a structural material of steamcured cellular (aerated) concrete. Using this eco-friendly material saves upto 40% on cement and upto 50% on steel compared to reinforced cement concrete.
