BluHomes Gakakan has received Final EDGE Advanced Certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative (PGBI).

BluHomes Gakakan

BluHomes Gakakan


BluHomes Gakakan, is an eco-friendly housing project in Caloocan City developed by Aztala Corporation, a local real estate developer. The project is the  third development under the sustainability-focused BluHomes brand, named after the Gakakan Tree, a native and endangered tree in the Philippines, one of which is planted in front of each home. The development consists of 12 units with a floor area of 79 square meters. Perforated pavers with grass were used for sidewalk instead of plain concrete to reduce thermal mass inside the subdivision.

To meet international standards for resource efficiency, energy and water-saving technologies were incorporated into the design, construction and internal processes of the building. Reflective paint, roof insulation, solar photovoltaics and an LED lighting reduce the units’ energy use, while water-efficient plumbing fixtures reduce water consumption resulting in a more sustainable construction and a lower carbon footprint.

Hotel Sun has received final EDGE Advanced Certification from Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).

Hotel Sun

Hotel Sun


Hotel Sun is an eco-friendly city hotel located in Nicosia, Cyprus. Resource-efficient features and technologies were chosen based on life cycle cost analysis, to minimize the environmental impact and total cost of ownership, meeting the owner’s main requirement to have a truly sustainable facility.

The building envelope was designed to optimize the overall energy performance of the building. Construction materials were selected from locally available and low embodied energy type alternatives. A solar thermal system, supplemented by a heat pump, meets the hot water demand all year round. Air conditioning is provided by an energy efficient chiller heat pump system with heat recovery ventilation. Lighting utilizes LED technology and VFD’s are used extensively on fans and pumps. Low water consumption is achieved in guest rooms and public areas through careful control of water pressure and low-flow fittings. An off-site solar PV system generates sufficient electrical energy to offset most of the electrical demand of the hotel.
