Optimizing building performance at Pushpawati Singhania research institute


Type d'article : Article, Étude de cas


Located in South Delhi, India, Pushpawati Singhania Research Institute (PSRI) is a multispecialty institute of national and international repute, known for its expertise in Nephrology, Urology and Gastroenterology. Officially opened in 1996, the facility was established with a focus on providing curative and preventive medical care through a caring environment. PSRI has built a reputation for itself as one of South East Asia’s leading institutes providing highly specialized tertiary level treatment across multiple disciplines. The state-of-the-art facility is staffed by a team of highly experienced and specialized doctors who are leaders in their respective fields and cater to both international and domestic patients. To enable patients to recuperate in a restful and conducive environment, it is critical for the hospital to create an indoor environment that offers optimal humidity and temperature levels. This is important as providing a holistic and therapeutic environment that facilitates healing helps promote faster patient recovery. One of the issues that PSRI faced was that its centralized air conditioning system was inefficient and incurring unnecessary costs in the form of excessive energy usage. Due to the high human traffic and footfall, the aging air conditioning system was unable to meet rising load conditions and was consuming 60 percent to 70 percent of the hospital’s electricity bill. As such, it was clear that the facility was in need of a retrofit solution.
