"Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
The World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987
Increasing concerns over the impact of construction on the environment have led to a host of ways to reduce carbon emissions during the construction and usage of residential properties.
APC Estates incorporates some of these methods as a way to offer an environmentally friendly real estate option that considers the following:
- Reduction in emissions
- Water Conservation
- Energy Conservation
- Improved Health for end users
The design of the Hua Hin Hill Club was focused around improved indoor environmental quality, reduction in CO2 emissions, energy and water efficiency, and sourcing of sustainable resources.
The layout of each villa has been designed to maximize space internally and externally, creating a comfortable living environment and lifestyle inside and out.
Numerous small windows including large sliding windows allow plenty of natural light to brighten up the villas throughout the whole internal area, allowing a reduction in the need for artificial lighting during the day and having a brightly lit living environment.
The envelope is specially insulated to keep the building cool in the hot climate, reducing the amount of air-conditioning used whilst occupying the villa, consequently lowering energy usage.
Another energy conscious measure has been the inclusion of Energy Efficient light bulbs.
The wastewater from the toilets and showers is recycled through Bio Septic tanks to irrigate the garden areas.
By considering the green concepts at the outset, we were able to adapt the design so that it has focused on sparing materials where possible, using less than traditional builds, having a positive impact on the environment and its resources.
Most of the timber used has been sourced from APC’s very own sustainable plantations.
Photovoltaic panels have been procured given the amount of exposed sunlight in Hua Hin, creating a renewable energy source to power the house, dramatically reducing running costs.
Paints used with low volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) improving the indoor air quality and well being of the occupants.
All waste from the construction is re-used where possible, before being recycled.
