The Ascent – Thao Dien Condominiums
Each of the two-bedroom apartments in the Thao Dien Condomiums complex enjoys a breeze from the Saigon River with a view across it. A project by Tien Phat Real Estate Investment Company, the pair of 29-story towers will feature 93 EDGE-certified residences. The residential buildings are located just three minutes away from the An Phu metro station, providing convenient access to downtown Ho Chi Minh City.
Owners can expect to save US$35 per month on their utility bills, as their living spaces benefit from insulation and superior glass. The Ascent – Thao Dien Condominiums was built by Hoa Binh Construction Real Estate Corporation, an employer of 6,000 Vietnamese whose aim is to optimize construction costs for investors while producing a high-quality product that meets the needs of various market segments. The Ascent – Thao Dien Condominiums has received a final EDGE certificate from SGS Vietnam.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied in Materials
Insulation of roof and external walls; higher performance glass; and energy-efficient lighting system.
Low flow showerheads, low-flow faucets for kitchen sinks and wash basins; and dual flush water closets.
In-situ reinforced wall for external walls and autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for internal walls.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
