A tiny dwelling in the Philippines powered by solar. A comfortable apartment in India without air conditioning. And a condominium with high-performance glass in Jakarta. No matter the product, EDGE enables developers to offer outstanding value to their customers.
Smart homebuyers understand that owning a green home means lower utility bills and a higher re-sale price. They also have a sense of fulfillment that comes from making the right choice. Developers can capture these rewards in living spaces with good ventilation and abundant daylight.
EDGE takes into account occupancy, the owner’s income level and unit sizes to create a benchmark model for either landed homes or apartments. A developer’s design team can then select from such practical solutions as reflective paint, energy-efficient ceiling fans and water-conserving fixtures to create homes of outstanding value. Each homeowner receives an EDGE certificate as proof of delivery on the promise to build green.
By helping developers choose solutions that make sense in a given climate, EDGE ensures performance while protecting the environment. That is why for homes in emerging markets, EDGE is a win-win for all.
