Why we care and you should too

Why we care

  • Every 1.2 seconds, man destroy an area of forest the size of a football field.
  • 80% of the world's forests are already destroyed.
  • 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions are the result of deforestation
  • More than 20% of the world's oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rainforest. With the latest wildfires the Amazon is now in a bad shape.

How we make a difference

  • 1 mature tree will absorb 48lbs (21.77kg) CO2 from the air and turn it into Oxygen.
  • This tree will absorb as much carbon in a year as an average car produces while driving 26,000miles (41,843km)
  • That same tree can provide enough oxygen for 2-6 people per year
  • Trees filter and provides improved water quality by slow filtering rain fall
  • Trees and leaves also helps cooling down buildings up 10-15 Degrees C
  • In 1 day, a large tree can lift up to 378 liters of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air and thereby lower the air temperature
  • Trees results in a 30% reduced aircon saves energy cost
  • Trees increases property value with 12-27%
  • Trees are also shown to lower stress, reduce blood pressure and reduce anxiety

Why should you care

  • For every tree we cut down,direct or indirect we will plant 2 in its place.
  • For every 1mil THB you buy, we will donate 1,000THB to TEI on your behalf
  • We cover as many parts of the building as we can with leaf plants and trees in order to cool down the building and reduce our carbon footprint
  • We reject the usage of non-recycled plastic
  • We use material with minimum maintenance and that does not require chemicals to maintain
  • We balance the usage of recycled material, eco-friendly material and highly durable material with cost and affordability
  • Street light and other outside light will be solar powered
  • Solar panels on the rooftop provide clean and renewable energy, lowering down energy consumption.
  • We use new and innovative technology that helps clean the environment

The Site and Location

  • The Site is an open area without forest or any big trees to minimalize the impact on the Nature during the Construction
  • The Site is in the Yellow Zone, meaning less crowded and less dense habitation and allows for Condominium
  • Surrounding Greenery is left untouched

Making the Building Green(er)

  • In the area surrounding the project we have over 30% of Green space
  • A Large Part of the Roof top is Green to absorb the heat and cool the building down
  • The outside wall of the buildings are covered with climbing Ivy and plants hanging of the balconies, heat-isolating the Building which reduces the need for air conditioning while giving a green and calm esthetics.
  • Preserving the existing greenery growing around the building and adding some more ensures fresher air, lower temperatures and the surrounding area remains lush

Adding more green to the building

  • From the core design we added greenery, even on the insides with vertical gardens and pots with plans in the common areas of the buildings
  • This works as natural air fresheners, cleaning the air and also reduce heat
  • A man-made waterfall welcomes you to the project This cools down the water and the surrounding area, making the air more fresh
  • It also look amazing with moving water and the sound of water has a proven therapeutic and calming effect, clearing the mind and the air

WATER EFFICIENCY

Water resource management

Collecting Rain Water ( Rain harvesting )

Used as a replacement for tap water for example:

  • Watering of plants throughout the project
  • Refilling the project’s Waterfall and Pools
  • Washing common areas and similar
  • Flushing water for the toilets

Gray water

Relatively clean waste water, reused for the best benefit

  • Shower waste water
  • Sink waste water
  • Washing waste water

Funneled through filters and cleaned it is collected in another tank and pumped back to be reused in various parts as suitable

Energy and atmosphere

Energy Saving and Ambience

Colored glass
  • Colored glass to reflect and absorb light (Heat Absorbing Glass)

Reduces the heat from the sun that pass through It absorb and deflect around (35%-50%) of the heat from the sun that hits the surface thus contributing to reducing the cooling load of the air conditions and saving energy depending on coating and thickness.

  • Sheer curtains and Blackout Curtains to reduce heat
Led-Bulbs
  • 5 and LED bulbs throughout, for highest efficiency

Advantages of LED bulbs:

  1. Up to 90% energy saving 60-80% energy efficiency over other regular bulbs
  2. Long Service Lifespan Average LED lasts 50,000-100,000 hours
  3. Environmental friendly No toxic compounds or elements (Mercury free) and are 100% recyclable
  4. Ultra low UV Emission Majority of the light is in the visible spectrum Virtually zero infrared or ultraviolet Emissions
  5. Low radiated heat 95% of the energy is converted to light and only 5% is wasted as heat.
  6. High Reliability Instant On and Off and frequent witching doesn’t cause degradation in the device
Solar
  • Solar panels on the roof

Produces renewable energy for efficient use in the buildings and covers up to 30% of the total peak energy consumption.

All electricity used will firstly consume the Solar generated power and use the PEA grid if required.

Charging
  • Charging stations for Electric Cars Helping people to be Eco-friendly

Reduces Fossil fuel consumptions and reduces global warming Helps to Reduce air pollution and less noise

  • Installed by the Lobby parking
  • Installed in the underground parking EV zones for easy and convenient use
  • Sensors for light and corridors

Material and resources

  • Selection of materials and construction resources to be Environmentally friendly

Natural stone veneer on most of the exterior walls Looks beautiful, heat isolation and durable.

Stone Surface are constructed from 100% natural stone slices, precision cut and holds all properties of the natural stone It is water, heat and sunlight resistant and easy maintenance that requires no chemicals.

Serene Material
Serene fitness
  • The ceiling of the common areas uses GREEN BOARD

Recycled material, shredded into small pieces and then pressed together using first hot and then cold press The process is eco friendly and use no chemicals or glue.

  • Fitness Center ceilingFitness Center ceiling
