It’s no secret how the words “sustainable” and “green” are becoming more and more evident in the checklists of people aiming to acquire property. A lot of people have been seeing the advantages of going green—and this is always good news, as people become more aware of the real problems that are affecting our environment today.
You’ve seen them everywhere—solar panels, sun-powered insulation systems, retro-fit roof covers, greenhouses—all these have become important solutions in an effort for real estate to go green. There have been a lot of developments in the Malaysian real estate industry, as more and more establishments are going green. For property-seekers who vie for green real estate, the MK10 is currently conceptualising more ideas in order to adhere to the standards of green living.
There have been a lot of green housing options available, and it’s about time for you to consider going green and do your part in making our environment a safe place to live in for everyone.
Green Construction: Going to the Core
Using environment-friendly materials in the building of houses and offices is a common practice in green real estate. However, the core lies within the construction of eco-friendly residences and offices. It all starts with surveying and implementing ways on how to construct a building or a house in the most efficient and effective manner, without harming the environment. This boils down to effective waste management, water consumption control, land surveys, and energy consumption.
A lot of projects have resulted into successful green buildings. For the most part, the implementation of renewable energy has led to reduced costs in construction and building. Technology has contributed in introducing energy-reducing systems that will not only reduce the energy used in creating houses and buildings—it also reduces the costs involved. A lot of builders and contractors have realised the importance of green construction, and it has led to the elimination of high costs—for example, builders in China had implemented an eco-friendly strategy to construct 4,000 houses, and the results were dramatic—green construction allowed them to save up big by eliminating the need to construct landfills, water plants, and waste treatment plants.
It’s About Time!
With a lot of builders deciding to go green, I think it’s about time for you to realise the value and benefits of choosing homes and offices that prioritise the safety of the environment. Think of it as a long-term and fulfilling benefit—you would sure reap in all the savings in the long run. Just look at your electricity bills at the end of the day. Do your part and contribute to the greater good of the environment—there is nothing more fulfilling and priceless.
