One of the first campuses designed by VGA, BRCM Vidyagram is located in Bahal, a small town on the Rajasthan- Haryana border. The 100-acre campus is home to a vibrant community of 1500 students, split across a residential school and an institute of higher learning. Initiated at a time when green design features weren't the norm in India, the campus ecosystem was developed to include multiple concurrent systems of resource management – including solar energy devices, rainwater harvesting systems, on-site sewage treatment and a bio-gas plant. Over the years, these integrated systems have increased soil fertility and raised the water table – turning BRCM Vidyagram into an oasis in the arid sub-Aravali landscape. The design of the project has enabled self-sustenance among its users, with a large chunk of its energy, water and food needs being met on-site. These facilities have turned the campus into a prominent cultural and educational hub in the region; by creating strong links with the district population at large, the project has been an important factor in arresting urban emigration of students from the region, a hallmark of sound social infrastructure.
