Jaypee City

The creation of three linked urban areas, 50km south-east of Delhi, in India. The brief was to create a modern and authentic city with infrastructure sufficiently advanced to last for the next 100 years.

Jaypee City


WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff’s experts from the UK and India provided consultancy on transport, infrastructure and sustainability strategies, applying international best practice and the most ambitious environmental standards.

Jaypee City is designed to make the most effective use of limited water and energy, using a range of techniques to cut consumption by 60% and 46% respectively. Surface water drainage and flood protection is an essential consideration in an area where the climate varies between heavy monsoon rains and a long dry season, so the WSP team developed a strategy with seasonal ponds that will adapt to different water levels and store surplus water. 

Jaypee City is also the site of India’s Formula One motor racing circuit and a 100,000-seat cricket stadium, and both of these were crucial considerations for the transport strategy.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff was able to bring experts in many disciplines to work on the project, from urban design and transport modelling to water management, waste management and energy.

Initially it was appointed to carry out around eight weeks of work, but that was swiftly increased to 14 and the scope more than doubled.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff developed the CITIMETRIX tool especially for this project. It assesses the long-term sustainability of every aspect of a design, providing a clear, easy-to-understand graph to demonstrate current successes and the potential for improvement.

Our UK team has been retained by Jaypee Group as client adviser to ensure the development fulfils its potential in the years to come.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff in India has also been appointed by Jaypee to assist in finalising the designs and to carry out detailed design for roads, water supply, sewerage, drainage, electrical and telecommunications across 14,500ha.
