Mahindra Technical Academy (MTA) (Sustainable Building, Leads Certified Platinum Rated) is a 68,000 sq. ft. Training Academy for Mahindra & Mahindra Staff, Chennai, Tamil Nadu Located at Mahindra World City, this sprawling two-story structure set on a site of five acres is a play of volumetric architecture. Designed as a training and research facility for Mahindra trainees & staff. This state-of-the-art architectural project was completed with interiors & landscape in Nov. 2014. MTA’s free-flowing design seamlessly merges with Mahindra Research Valley (MRV) campus designed by Sir Charles Correa.

The building consists of two sections of classrooms & PEB workshops segregated by a series of courtyards which both segregate two sections as well as unify it for training purposes. Forming a green transitional axis. Courtyards not only serve as light wells but also form buffer breakout spaces between various zones. The building houses laboratories, workshops, various classrooms with both formal & informal seating, computer labs, staff rooms, & conferences. This building with its volumetric play has an interesting curved façade organically camouflaging & merging the PEB workshops into the classroom building.
