Indian startup works towards sustainability

BuildInn (formerly Crush Mango), brainchild of Rohan Shenoy and Puja Aarti is a fresh idea to sustainable development.

Their work gathered the attention of the Ministry of Road Transport, Shipping and Highways recently, which called them to apply for a pan-India design competition for toll booths made with sustainable materials and powered by solar energy. BuildInn’s solar-powered toll plaza won the award.

The company’s designs are now being built in Akhepura and Mithoon in Rajasthan.

Rohan, Co-founder, BuildInn, said, “This particular highway toll will reduce traffic jams in toll areas and reduce the carbon footprint. Technology companies will be involved in tracking vehicles and all this will be powered by solar energy.”

BuildInn will be designing hospitals, a school, a recreational centre, and mineral water units for the state government, all including sustainability.

“We have used ancient and modern features like filler-roof slabs, radiant cooling, soil-stabilised block construction, pre-engineered buildings, rainwater harvesting and organic hydroponic gardens,” Rohan added.
