Hotel Sun has received final EDGE Advanced Certification from Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).

Hotel Sun

Hotel Sun


Hotel Sun is an eco-friendly city hotel located in Nicosia, Cyprus. Resource-efficient features and technologies were chosen based on life cycle cost analysis, to minimize the environmental impact and total cost of ownership, meeting the owner’s main requirement to have a truly sustainable facility.

The building envelope was designed to optimize the overall energy performance of the building. Construction materials were selected from locally available and low embodied energy type alternatives. A solar thermal system, supplemented by a heat pump, meets the hot water demand all year round. Air conditioning is provided by an energy efficient chiller heat pump system with heat recovery ventilation. Lighting utilizes LED technology and VFD’s are used extensively on fans and pumps. Low water consumption is achieved in guest rooms and public areas through careful control of water pressure and low-flow fittings. An off-site solar PV system generates sufficient electrical energy to offset most of the electrical demand of the hotel.

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).
