ACREX Hall of Fame 2023
ACREX Hall of Fame is an industry benchmark instituted by ISHRAE along with the premier partner to recognize efficient and innovative building designs, systems and technologies. ACREX Hall of Fame inductees are icons and role models for all building developers, architects and designers to learn from and aspire to match, as we build India’s economic and environmental future.
Induction into the ACREX Hall of Fame is by a rigorous objective evaluation of live operational data from buildings. The evaluation is led by a distinguished Jury of scientists, architects and technocrats supported by a Technical Committee of eminent designers and engineers from across the nation.
