Bangkok, the 26th of September 2008 [PDN]: The Lofts Southshore was successfully launched in July this year, pre-selling 61 units on its opening day at a value of THB732 million, and is due to be completed in June 2012.
Raimon Land Chief Executive Officer, Nigel Cornick, said: “Integrity in everything we do is a cornerstone of our business philosophy, and the timely approval of the EIA is evidence again of the seriousness with which we take environmental issues.
“Buyers are ever more demanding, and we continually seek new levels to which we can accommodate them. By focussing on environmental and energy conservation from the preliminary design stages, we can ensure them that the final product meets or exceeds the most stringent environmental standards while not largely affecting the immediate area we are building on.”
Raimon Land’s support of ‘green’ systems has become a mainstay on all its projects. Initiatives such as use of water recycling, water efficient bathroom fittings, low-energy light fitting, high-quality aluminium window systems with tinted laminated glass, window shadings and other ‘energy aware’ designs appropriate for Thailand’s tropical climate have set new standards for luxury condominiums in the Kingdom.
The developer’s concern for the environment and community is further evidenced by its many corporate social responsibility projects aimed at this very issue, including the recently dedicated water treatment plant at Pongsaket School near Pattaya to support the Bangkok South and Pattaya Rotary Clubs’ “Clean Drinking Water Project”.
In its effort to offset all of its carbon emissions, Raimon Land has also partnered with the Plant A Tree Today (PATT) Foundation to establish a nursery at the UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site, Khao Yai National Park. The nursery is open to any company looking to reduce its carbon footprint, and will also be used as a research and educational facility.
