In line with Hamilo Coast’s commitment to the environment, sustainable green building strategies are expected to be integrated within the luxury residential development. Freia’s hallways will have natural lighting and ventilation so that there will be no need for 24/7 air conditioning.
The building will also feature a photovoltaic roof. Solar panels will be installed to provide power to the common area lighting.
Other sustainable strategies will be waste segregation, recycling and rain water harvesting.
“There will be a giant water tank underneath Freia which will collect all that rainwater that will be used for irrigation, especially since Freia will have a lot of gardens,” Ortiga further noted.
SM Prime plans to break ground for Freia before the first half of the year ends. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
The four-year timetable may seem like a stretch for just a 13-storey condominium. But Ortiga explained that construction cannot be done on the weekends and on days when Pico de Loro Cove is at its busiest.
Of course, comfort is top priority for unit owners and beach and country club members.
