Forest in the Sky
Developed by Flamingo Dai Lai Joint Stock Company, Forest in the Sky is a unique real estate project with advanced green technologies located in Hanoi.
Vietnam’s Coteccons served as the construction contractor for the eco-friendly complex. Forest in the Sky pioneers a new sustainability standard for Vietnam, emphasizing a visual appeal that is grounded in durability, comfort and energy and water-conserving features.
With its distinctive architecture, the four sides of Forest In The Sky are covered with over 75,000 trees, including shrubs, vines and colorful flowers. From a distance, the building resembles a tropical jungle full of vitality and brilliance. From within the building, residents can enjoy a panoramic view of Dai Lai Lagoon and Tam Dao Range.
Residents benefit from lower utility bills as all homes feature energy-efficient lighting, external window shading and high-efficiency hot water boilers, ensuring the building is as “green” on the inside as it is on the outside.
Forest in the Sky has received final EDGE certification from SGS Vietnam.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio; reflective paint for external walls; insulation of roof and external walls; energy-efficient air conditioning system; energy-efficient heat pump for hot water; solar hot water collectors; and energy-saving lighting for internal spaces, common areas and external spaces.
Low-flow plumbing fixtures for washbasins and kitchens and water-conserving water closets.
Cellular lightweight concrete blocks and a thinner, in-situ reinforced concrete slab for floor slabs and roof construction
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
