Located about 49 km from Mumbai in Thane district, the site for this institute is a 25 acre plot of deforested woodland covered by dense greens. A temple lies in the north of the site from where it gently slopes down towards the southwest. An existing road to this temple has been retained in the design and restructured to suit the spatial distribution of the various faculties. The built form flows with the natural terrain on which it stands.
This zone, where the animals are to be kept, is located such that the stench from the animals would be blown away from the site by the south westerly winds.
This is where the research laboratories and services are located. They flow around the central courtyard which overlooks the amphitheater.
This is where the administration, conference rooms and auditorium are located in the central part of the site.
Lying to the rear of the administrative and academic areas, this zone has the staff quarters, guesthouses, hostels, club house and recreational facilities.
