23 Oct 2017
S P Setia is proud to have won the inaugural The EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Award 2017 for Eco Sanctuary under the Development Innovation Category. Earlier this month, Eco Sanctuary was awarded FIABCI Singapore’s Property Award 2017 under the category of Sustainable Development.
The inaugural EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards 2017 is the benchmark of excellence in Singapore's property development. Four open categories for Development Innovation, Landscape Excellence, Property Development Excellence and Marketing Excellence with two non-submission categories for Value Creation Excellence and Top Developer awards.
Eco Sanctuary is awarded the Development Innovation Award which is a recognition for developments that innovatively pushes the envelope to succeed in a variety of areas such as recreational services, community health initiatives, sustainability, construction productivity, safety advancements, energy efficiency and green initiatives.
Eco Sanctuary is a 24-storey condominium located along Chestnut Avenue and offers its residents the much sought-after panoramic view of Singapore’s largest nature reserve. The development was inspired by nature and its designs emulate the ecology of its lush surroundings. The innovative use of biomimicry architecture has led to the striking design of the building’s facade that is not only outstanding in appearance, but creates a solar passive home for all to enjoy.
A sustainable design philosophy was instrumental in Eco Sanctuary’s architectural design, building orientation as well as the construction materials used. All apartments enjoy maximum day-lighting and wind circulation with minimum heat gain. Extensive water features such as swimming pools and bio-ponds help to keep the development cool in the day while individual apartments are fitted with energy and water efficient appliances and fittings.
Other green features in Eco Sanctuary include rainwater harvesting, drip irrigation for landscape and wide range motion sensors. All these eco-influenced features have met with the stringent requirements of sustainability construction which paved the way for Eco Sanctuary to be awarded with the Green Mark Platinum by BCA, the highest accolade for sustainable developments.
