SageGlass, a supplier of electrochromic glass, was chosen by Bagmane Group, one of India’s largest build-to-suit real estate developers, to create what is expected to be the largest smart glass installation in the world. SageGlass will provide 200,000 square feet of itsHarmony electrochromic glass, controls and software for Rio Business Park, a 1.6 million square foot office development in Bangalore, India.
The SageGlass India team will work with local glazier Glass Wall Systems to install and commission more than 12,000 smart glass panels at Rio Business Park for this project, which is already underway.
Google will serve as the primary tenant for the space beginning in August 2022.
Electrochromic glass — also referred to as smart glass or dynamic glass — is designed to automatically tint throughout the day, helping to reduce glare and regulate temperatures while letting natural light in. In a survey of French tech employees in an office equipped with SageGlass, the majority of those polled said that dynamic glass positively affects their wellbeing at work.
“As employee wellness and sustainability become higher priorities for savvy building owners, SageGlass is in a unique position to deliver both,” says Namrata Vora, SageGlass vice president of sales, North America and India/Asia Pacific. “We are so pleased to partner with Bagmane Group to create a healthy, sustainable workplace for their tenants at Rio Business Park.”
“We strive to create premiere workplace experiences for our world-class customers,” said Aditya Bagmane, director at Bagmane Group. “For this office development, we are working with a tech customer who expects the best. We chose SageGlass for this innovative building because of their superior smart glass offering, ability to invest in cutting-edge technology, and Saint-Gobain’s presence in India.”
