Spread across six acres by the arterial Mount Road in Chennai, the ITC Grand Chola has the unique distinction of being the World’s Largest LEED Platinum rated hotel in the new construction category.

The 600 room luxury hotel boasts of a unique 100,000 sq ft of banqueting and convention space, with 30,000 sq ft of pillar-less ballroom (amongst the largest in the country), 10 food and beverage outlets and a 23,000 sq ft SPA.

As a sustainable structure, the hotel recycles its waste, meets all its electrical energy demands through renewable sources and has reduced its water use by nearly 35% through the efficient fixtures. The hotel secured the prestigious LEED platinum rating from the India Green Building Council (IGBC).

AECOM’s building engineering team was involved with the project from the conceptualisation stage to all the way through to construction, providing design of MEP services.
