Experience The ‘Metro Kochi’ With Shwas Homes

Vision & Mission

Ambition

To enrich the quality of life for everyone in Kochi by facilitating better connectivity between people, between people and places, and vetween people and prosperity.

The Oppurtunity

To make Kochi a more liveable and pleasant city for residents and visitors alike, where public transportation would be used by all – connecting people and places safely, seamlessly, reliably and comfortably.


Strategic Goals

  • To introduce a world-class metro system in Cochin to enhance the quality of life for the Greater Kochi metro area by improving regional connections and reducing overcrowding, traffic congestion, transit time, air and noise pollution.
  • To adopt a stakeholder approach to improve connectivity and quality of life by coordinating and consulting with important stakeholder groups, such as community groups, business groups, environmental groups, state and central governments, architects and planners, and various regulatory agencies.
  • To connect metro with the Cochin International Airport to crate seamless transition, transit, and interconnectivity.
  • To plan to extend the metro to Fort Cochin.
  • To create transport hubs with metro, bus and rail links.
  • To increase the economic vitality of the region by improving infrastructure resulting in the further development of the greater Kochi area as an economic, transportation, and tourism hub
  • To be accountable for our actions.

Values

  • Safety and Service: We commit to provide a safe, reliable and customer-friendly transportation experience.
  • Community Involvement: We value being a part of the greater Kochi community and strive to contribute to the economic growth and development of the area.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: We pledge to work with all the stakeholders, including customers, employees, local businesses, local community, civic societies and appropriate state and federal governmental authorities, in our operations.
  • Cultural and Environmental Sustainability: We believe in sustainable economic development where infrastructural, economic and ecological concerns are integrated into smart growth
  • Employee Empowerment: We commit to a work environment where employees are treated with respect, they take responsibility for results and their teamwork is rewarded.
  • Fiscal Responsibility & Accountability: We pledge to being fiscally responsible as well as being accountable for our actions.

Operational Goals

  • Ensure that the planners reflect the socio-cultural, economic, and environmental impact of the proposed system.
  • Link investments in public transportation systems with land use planning
  • Minimize property acquisition and other displacements in the implementation of the project
  • Support existing and planned economic activities
  • Encourage an environmentally sustainable approach to planned development
  • Build the metro system with rider security and comfort as the most important considerations
  • Achieve economic feasibility and cost-effectiveness in the implementation of the strategic objectives.

Why Kochi Metro

  • Ministry of Urban Development predicts an average city speed of 6 to 8 kmph by 2030, which is the speed of a morning walker, if urban transport is not properly planned and developed now.
  • The present transport facilities are inadequate to handle every day demands.
  • Gridlocks and congestion are routine now; they result in wastage of manpower, fossil fuels, increase pollution and act as dampeners to economic development.
  • The traffic snarls force people to spend time on the road which they would otherwise spend with their friends and families.
  • Further road development is very limited owing to geographical and demographical limitations.
  • Therefore alternate modes of urban mass transport and multi modal integration have to be planned.
  • The Kochi Metro Rail Project is the first move in such a direction in Kerala.
  • Accessing jobs, education, livelihoods and other social needs from the outskirts into the business centre of the city would become less time consuming and quality of life will increase for the urban population.
  • The average citizen would get a reliable, safe, economic, comfortable, user friendly and punctual mode of transport at affordable rates.

Life in a Gated Community


Townships are like mini cities with all the essential facilities available within the complex. This is what makes them so attractive to people and developers. Across the country are going all out to develop these residential townships across cities.
Here are a few key reasons, living in a township is far beneficial than living in an independent set-up

Amenities: The biggest benefit of living in a township are the quiet, open spaces around you. A thoughtful township builder will incorporate a large percentage of open space within buildings/villas in a township so that there is ample greenery and as a result, fresh air to breathe. Townships give you an opportunity to revel in a plethora of amenities and comforts like shopping mall, food courts, multiplex, supermarkets, entertainment zones, sporting facilities etc. all well around the vicinity of your home, imparting a supreme luxury living like none other.

 Safety and Security: A common concern for those people with small children is that their dwelling should have ample place for the children to play. That is one of the reasons why most people with young children prefer to live in a house with their own private garden or backyard, as opposed to living in a cramped apartment building. But in a township, this problem is resolved easily. You can choose to live in flats within a township and still have ample space for your children to play safely without having to leave the gate.

Everything at 1 place: Whatever is your requirement, all you have to do is just name it; township is a picture-perfect destination where your every need is satisfied, you can find everything right from a shopping mall to a doctor’s clinic and office spaces to entertainment zones at your door-step.
Experience: Townships bestow you larger living & open spaces, sports zones, gardens, jogging tracks and play grounds that suit the requirements of all age-groups from kids to youngsters towards the elders.

Nature Green: All townships are eloquently positioned at perfect locations away from the city so as to enjoy a proper environment and ambiance with vibrant settings. Eco-friendly and sustainable features like rainwater harvesting, solar power, sewage treatment etc. makes townships picture-perfect for living.

Best Community: An obvious benefit of a township is that of community. For example, at S&P Foundation, we aim to build large townships where not less than 200 families reside. Now imagine living in a township which offers privacy and open space, but also the opportunity to network and get to know families and people in different fields so well.
Just by virtue of having a walled township with several amenities like a club house where people can interact, a special atmosphere is created where you and the rest of the residents can bond. That is what townships do – they create real communities. Communities that you can turn to any time you need help. Communities that your children can grow up with. And communities where you can make life-long friendships and build what will essentially become your extended family.

Home Automation


 
Home Automation
Home Automation
Until recently, the idea of home automation was relatively unfamiliar to most people. However, as more products and technologies become more easily accessible, homeowners across the country are upgrading their homes.
So what is home automation? Simply put, home automation puts control of basic home systems and appliances into the hands of the homeowner and provides access from a remote point – like a smart phone app, or at a centralized unit inside the home. Just like some of the futuristic technology, it’s now possible to control things like your home temperature, lighting, and even security systems with the touch of a screen, the swipe of a finger, and even the sound of your voice.
If the idea of a smart, automated home sounds too techy for your tastes, or you think these kinds of products probably cost an arm and a leg, think again. The future is now and it’s completely accessible. Plus, there are a lot of hidden benefits to automating your home that you might not have thought about before.

Benefits to Home Automation

  1.     Security
Tap your finger to turn on the lights when you get home so you aren’t worried about what’s hiding in the shadows, or in your pathways. Or automate to turn on when you aren’t home to look like you are to ward off potential robbers. Door locks are another automated home product that can increase your home security.
Worried that the kids didn’t lock the doors before they ran off to play? Or that someone will discover you’re not-so-secret hiding place for the extra key? Take control of your home safety from a simple app. With some products, you can even get an alert every time someone enters your home.

2.     Energy Efficiency

Increase your home’s energy efficiency by remotely powering off systems and appliances when they aren’t in use. In addition to the standard home automation products that give you active control, some products actively monitor systems and arm the homeowner with knowledge, insight and guidance to achieve greater control and energy efficiency. 

 

3.     Savings

Home automation literally pays off. When you are able to use home systems and appliances only when needed, the savings will be apparent in the first utility bill. No more wasting money on lights left on when you aren’t home, or spending money on gas to drive home because you forgot to lock the door. Monetary savings are apparent, but you’ll also be saving time. No wasted trips home, no running through the house turning everything off, no time spent worrying about what was or wasn’t turned off.

4.     Convenience

Don’t you hate having to rely on neighbours to watch your house when you’re gone? With home automation, convenient control of your home is at your fingertips. You don’t have to trust someone else with your most valued possessions.

5.     Comfort

Ever leave for work in the morning when it was a comfortable 68° outside only to come home to a sweltering house because the temperature shot up to 90°? A connected home product like Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat lets you conveniently adjust your home temperature from the mobile app so your family is always comfortable.
 6.     Peace of Mind
One of the biggest hidden benefits that come with home automation is peace of mind. No more worrying if you turned off the lights, locked the door, or turned off the television. For people who have a lot on their plates, being able to easily check these items off the to-do list and stop the obsessive worrying, home automation is reassuring and definitely worth the investment.
