The Habitat Binh Duong – Phase Two
The Habitat Binh Duong is located within the lively Binh Duong District, situated near retail stores, schools, offices and public transportation for easy access to Ho Chi Minh City. The unique homes give residents the chance to live near lush greenery where they can take strolls in a calm environment to escape the busy city. The Habitat Binh Duong Phase Two introduces a design-forward style that is relevant to the modern Vietnamese, keeping in mind their need for comfort, security and quality.
The three towers in phase two consist of 460 apartments that include two, three and four-bedroom units. Each home has contemporary design touches that cater to residents seeking a modern lifestyle. The three residential towers have external shading devices and insulated roofing to keep units cool, while all units have energy-saving lighting with lighting controls. The resource-efficient units also provide residents with lower utility bills. In addition to open green spaces to enjoy the outdoors, residents have access to amenities within the building.
The Habitat is jointly developed by VSIP, Sembcorp (Singapore) and MC Development Asia (parent company Mitsubishi Corporation, Japan). VSIP Joint Venture Co is one the largest integrated land developers in Vietnam. The Habitat Binh Duong Phase Two has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from SGS Vietnam.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, external shading devices, insulation of the roof, low-E coated glass, energy-saving lighting and lighting controls for corridors and staircases.
Low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucets and dual flush water closets.
Controlled use of concrete for floor slabs and roof construction and autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for internal and external 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.
