This is regarding a large development residential colony project with social infrastructure buildings, public roads within the project development area. The estimated population for the entire project is around 11,500 nos for residentials 4,500 nos as visitor, service staff totaling to 16,000 nos. Considering this as a large urban project, can we take the average per capita quantity reference for urban areas from NBC 2016- Table A1.2 (Page 750, NBC 2016 Volume 2) instead of referring section 5.1 (Page 746, NBC 2016 Volume 2) as per the building typology.
The population considered in NBC 2016- Table A1.2 (Page 750, NBC 2016 Volume 2) is for cities and is of the order of 0.1 million. The project under consideration has a much lower population, so waste should be calculated using section 5.1 (Page 746, NBC 2016 Volume 2) as per the building typology. This will also help the project team to make adequate provision for waste storage and handling at the building level as well as at the site level.
