The project is commissioned by Kanpur based industrialists Manoj Agarwal and Shashank Agarwal. The company Kanpur Plastipack Ltd., manufacturers and exports Plastic Woven Sacks and wanted to extend their production facilities from their current factories in Kanpur. Their new site at Jainpur is an industrial zone with a very heavy concentration of factory buildings in the surrounding area.
The idea behind the design was to take into account all the details of machinery, labour and heat production by all equipment. A very careful juxtaposition of spaces, driven by function and environment resulted in the overall massing. The factory is designed in such a way that the use of energy for cooling the space and daylighting will be minimal. The design aims to deliver thermal comfort for facotry labour even in the environment of heat producing machines making it one of the first few energy efficient factories in the area. The factory will stand out both for its form and for its environmental performance.
