Clark International Airport – New Terminal Building

Clark International Airport – New Terminal Building


A new, modern passenger terminal is nearing completion at Clark International Airport. Located in Clark, a special economic zone between the cities of Angeles and Mabalacat, the airport is expected to be the next premier gateway of Asia, connecting travelers throughout the region.

The New Terminal Building was designed to celebrate Filipino culture and to include resource-efficient technologies. An energy-efficient air conditioning system, roof insulation, and LED lighting will be installed to reduce the terminal’s energy use, while water-efficient plumbing fixtures and a rainwater harvesting system will be installed to reduce the terminal’s water use. The resulting energy and water savings will lower the terminal’s operating costs and carbon footprint.

The Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of the New Terminal Building (NTB) and associated landside development was completed by Megawide-GMR Construction JV. Inc. (MGCJVI), a consortium of Megawide Construction Corp. and India’s GMR Infrastructure Ltd. Following the formal turnover by the Philippine Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), Luzon International Premier Airport Development (LIPAD) was awarded Operations and Maintenance of the airport, along with its interior fit-out.

The New Terminal Building at Clark International Airport has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from the Philippine Green Building Initiative (PGBI).

Senderos del Comendador

Senderos del Comendador


Senderos del Comendador is a new residential complex in Ciudad Vieja, a picturesque town in Sacatepéquez. Residents will enjoy the community’s impressive location, offering views of the nearby Volcán de Agua. Ecological bike and walking paths, playgrounds, and gardens will also be incorporated into the community to help residents connect with the surrounding environment.

The community’s 158 units were designed to conserve natural resources, helping residents save on utility costs. Reflective paint and energy-saving lighting will reduce the units’ energy use, while low-flow plumbing fixtures will reduce the units’ water use.

The developer of the project, Milésimo, is committed to the development of timeless, sustainable, and innovative real estate projects in the region.

Senderos del Comendador has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

Equites Park Meadowview – Altron

Equites Park Meadowview – Altron


Altron, a leading information and technology (ICT) company in South Africa, has opened a new facility at Equites Property Fund’s Meadowview industrial park. Situated next to the N3 highway in Johannesburg, Meadowview can accommodate development opportunities ranging from 5,000 to 20,000 square meters.

Resource-efficient design and technologies were incorporated into the warehouse for Altron to conserve natural resources. LED lighting and solar photovoltaics were installed to reduce the warehouse’s energy use, while dual-flush water closets and water-efficient faucets were installed to reduce the warehouse’s water use. The resource efficiency of the warehouse is a manifestation of Altron’s commitment to reduce the environmental impacts of its infrastructure.

Equites Property Fund, the developer of the industrial park, is committed to incorporating sustainable practices into its developments. Equites Property Fund has also EDGE-certified two warehouses at its Lords View development. Ecolution also performed EDGE Expert and EDGE Auditor services for this project.

Equites Park Meadowview – Altron has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.

REBEL

REBEL, located in San Borja, Peru, has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

REBEL


Developed by Inmgenio, the REBEL residential building offers a different kind of lifestyle. With a rooftop garden covering 50 percent of the roof, unique architecture, and environmentally-friendly materials, REBEL provides a tranquil escape from Lima’s bustling city center. The building has less glazing on the façade and external shading devices to conserve energy and eliminate the need for air conditioning. Such green features allow residents to save from $62 to $100 in utility bills, depending on the type of unit. Residents can choose from 44 modern apartments consisting of 2, 3, and 4-bedrooms units.

As the population in greater Lima expands, the government in Lima’s residential district of San Borja is ensuring the area grows sustainably in tandem. REBEL is one of several innovatively designed housing developments that rewards property developers with a height bonus incentive for committing to projects that earn green building certification.

Inmgenio has over seven years of experience developing innovative and sustainable housing for the greater Lima area. The company is committed to increasing the quality of life for its customers by helping them obtain savings through high-quality buildings. Inmgenio sought the help of architectural design firm Reusche + Reyna Atelier, sustainability consultant Diámetro Arquitectura + Sostenibilidad, and engineering firm Prisma Ingeniera to develop REBEL.
