This was the flagship project that was pioneered by the innovation cell. It involved forging multiple technology partnership for providing sanitation integrated, disaster resistant building technology solutions for cluster housing and public buildings.
Tatsat Foundation implemented this prestigious project in partnership with Prashak—a Delhi-based technology company and Asia Institute of Technology, which developed the patented technology.
This innovative technology enables the creation of state-of-the art, disaster resilient environment friendly, green and cost-effective building structures, using local materials and resources (unskilled manpower including women) with significantly lower use of cement and steel, resulting in low carbon footprint. Closed loop sanitation is integrated into the project that significantly reduces the chances of groundwater contamination.
This project laid the foundation of SMARTGRAMS or Smart Villages that directly impact the lives of millions of people living in the villages and rural India. The additional spinoff of this project was gender equality by ensuring the participation of women and financial inclusion through employment of the local workforce.
