CP Kukreja Architects gets Outstanding Concrete Structure 2019 for Human Resources Development Centre, Greater Noida

C P Kukreja Architects’ recently completed project, Human Resources Development Centre, Greater Noida has been awarded as the ‘Outstanding Concrete Structure 2019, Uttar Pradesh’ by the Indian Concrete Institute, Uttar Pradesh Centre, Ghaziabad. Ar. Dikshu C. Kukreja received the award by ER. V P Dudeja, VC of Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA).

The project for the Human Resources Development Centre in Greater Noida is located in the suburban area of NCR and is an educational nerve centre of the DPS Society for the In-service Teachers’ Capacity Building programs. The striking design breaks away as an extension of the neighbouring DPS whilst being able to exude a colourful design language of its own.

The Centre acts as a beacon of knowledge which seeks to prepare and coach the upcoming Teaching Staff for the DPS Society. The project included the design of an Administrative cum Academic Block, a Multi-Purpose Hall, a Gym Building, Hostel Building and accommodations for the Lecturers as well as the support staff. To break the monotony of the same, bands of amber radiate throughout the Campus, highlighting areas such as the grand entrance porch of the Admin Block, a string of differently sized window openings interspersed over the façade and an overarching roof structure. This magnanimous roof overhang acts as a shading device, engulfing the premises and regulating passive cooling.

The entrance porch of the Administrative cum Academic Block is an extruding element, imposing on the visitors with the massive columnar elements which support louvres on the roof. The design of the Multi-Purpose Hall, however, with a striking arched entrance is able to display a fine juxtaposition of architectural and engineering prowess. The RCC Archway seamlessly spans from one end to the other, spanning an impressive 80 feet. The design of the Human Resources Development Centre achieves a mark in the perception of educational institutions in the country and presents a lively way to break the mould.
