Energy-intensive building

Near major highways and easily accessible to Chennai, the IndoSpace Industrial Park Vallam is situated in an ideal location for the warehousing sector. The park consists of four buildings, one of which has received EDGE certification, and provides leasing space to logistics and manufacturing companies. Tenants of the EDGE-certified building operate in a resource-efficient environment, allowing them to reduce their utility bills and channel more funds into their businesses. These green features are expected to reduce the utility costs of the building by more than $4,000, allowing tenants to pay nearly half the amount it would cost to operate in a traditional warehouse.

A pioneer of modern industrial and logistics parks, IndoSpace has constructed over 30 parks across India since it was founded in 2007. Each park is leased as a shell building without any internal touches and then rented to customers who can customize their own space for the needs of their businesses. All the buildings within a park share common areas such as parking and outdoor space. With more than 80 companies renting their warehouses, IndoSpace caters to both national and international companies such as Amazon and IKEA. The company is committed to building industrial spaces that allow tenants to maximize profit with minimal harm to the environment. IndoSpace Industrial Park Vallam has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
