Ebene Cyber City Mauritius
We made the master plan and the Signature Tower for Ebene Cyber City in Mauritius in 2004. Our brief involved master planning for 150 acre on a prime piece of land between St Louis and Ebene Town. The master planning was primarily to facilitate establishment of several IT hardware and software facilities and also included the establishment of science parks, transport terminus, a recreation and shopping facility, and some essential Government departments. The Signature Tower, called the Ebene Cyber Tower, is a 12-storey high-rise with a basement, with a built-up area of 400,000 sqft. Several principles of sustainability and green building practices were incorporated in the design and construction of this building. An advanced intelligent building management system was designed and installed to facilitate monitoring and control of services and utilities as well as to provide advanced security, fire protection and life safety. For this building, CRN received the ´Intelligent Building of the Year 2005´ award given by aUS-based research organisation ´Intelligent Community Forum´ (ICF).
