DIL Limited Venture was originally launched in 1951 as a pharmaceutical company but has diversified its business over the years to incorporate biotechnology, environmental services and solutions, health & wellness, entertainment and real estate. The next step in its real estate programme is the construction of Thane One, an IT/ITES business hub in Thane, Maharashtra. Phase I of the project is due to complete this coming August.
Thane One blends office units with a business centre, banquet facilities, a health and wellness centre with swimming pool, food and beverage outlets, retail amenities and guest rooms. An emergency medical facility is also included in the plans as is a multi-level car park with over 1,000 bays plus charging points for electric vehicles.
Sustainability plays a major role in the design by Bentel Associates Realty Design Consultants. The practice has confirmed that this is the first pre-certified LEED Platinum corporate destination in Thane and they are working with Ab Initio to ensure that the structure meets this high standard. The 6-acre development includes an onsite sewerage effluent treatment plant for treating and reusing water.
Thane One has been designed to be Seismic Zone 3 Earthquake Resistant and incorporates a wide variety of security and safety elements such as pressurised fire escape staircases and a glazed façade designed with openings that meet the international standards for smoke ventilation. The development is activated with a variety of landscaped terraces and balconies which have been designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
