New green building at Corpn headquarters set to house Command Control Centre

2019-10-09

The ground-plus-four-floor building would come up on a land spread over 50,000 sq ft. The space just behind the Ripon Building that is being used as a parking lot will house the building. Apart from the integrated command control centre, the new building will also house a digital experience centre, a smart governance centre and a disaster response centre. All these centres are being implemented under the Smart City mission.

“We will also create green spaces around the building, outdoor seating, energy efficient lighting and other landscape feature. The project cost will be decided once the design of the building is completed,” the official added.

It is learnt that the civic body would spend around Rs 70 lakh to create a design for the building.

As Chennai Corporation had already commenced installation work and fabrication work to set up the integrated command control centre on the second floor of the Ripon Buildings, the centre would be shifted to the new building, once construction work is completed.

The civic body has appointed Kerala State Electronics Development Corporation Limited (Keltron) to set up the integrated command control centre at a cost of around Rs 150 crore.

The centre would control smart signalling, intelligent transport system, disaster management, parking management system and city surveillance by installing CCTV cameras across the city using the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data management technologies.
