Sustainability Through Innovation

Sustainable Masterplanning

The Sustainable Design Guidelines are meant to illustrate sustainable design strategies and concepts that focus on the appropriate and efficient use of resources —water, energy, air, materials and land — in order to reduce the development’s environmental impact during its lifecycle, and to make the whole development a highly ‘sustainable living community’ space. The report summarizes the product & technology research conducted by the Sustainability Team, and describes those products & technologies that will likely be the most useful for and relevant to Development.

Through the implementation of the guidelines the development will:

  • Minimize it’s ecological footprint
  • Achieve sustainable building and community design
  • Enhance the development’s air and water quality
  • Have increased operational efficiency
  • Achieve a clean community, where the environment is protected from pollution
  • Prepare the community for future and resilient to change
  • Be a healthy community, where highly livable outdoor environments encourage opportunities for excursive activity and interaction

The indicators are grouped into broad areas covering environmental, social, cultural and economic criteria for sustainability. This Covers following

  • Land use & Ecology
  • Mobility
  • Water
  • Energy & Climate Change
  • Pollution
  • Materials Recycling & Waste
  • Usability
  • Place Making
  • Cultural & Perceptual
  • Cost & Economics
