The Villa P3-2 homes are within the Duong Noi Township, a growing neighborhood that is expected to be zero-net carbon upon completion. Developed by Nam Cuong Corporation, the township is part of the company’s greater vision to building a more sustainable future for Vietnam. The company has committed to certifying all of their future projects green to reduce their environmental impact on the country. Villa P3-2 brings 198 five-bedroom homes to the township, which also includes a hospital, hotel, shops and an astronomy theme park. Located only a few kilometers from Hanoi, the township has easy access to schools and other facilities in the area.
The villas are elegantly designed with European architecture and terraces. In addition to building green, Nam Cuong also ensures that residents can live among nature. Thousands of trees will adorn the streets of Villa P3-2 and the rest of the 200-hectare Duong Noi property, which also will have a lake and plenty of green space for residents to enjoy. The energy-efficient homes save up to 62% in energy use with external shading devices, energy-efficient air-conditioning, solar-powered energy and more. The homes also conserve up to 66% water with the help of rainwater harvesting systems and recycled grey water in the water closets. With all of these features, residents are expected to save more than half of their utility bills. The homes also save embodied energy in materials through a contolled use of concrete in construction. Villa P3-2 has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from SGS Vietnam.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint for external walls, external shading devices, energy-efficient air conditioning system, energy-saving lighting system, solar hot water collectors and solar photovoltaics.
Low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucets, dual flush water closets, rainwater harvesting system and recycled grey water for flushing.
Controlled use of concrete for floor and roof construction and cellular light weight 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.
