The urban concept of Portowo has been developed with respect for the natural landscape and the environmental requirements of this exceptionally charming area. The residential buildings are lower towards the river, not blocking the view over the lush, waterside vegetation. After construction is completed, we will apply for LEED and BREEAM environmental certificates. They will confirm that Portowo meets sustainable development criteria, such as the high energy efficiency of buildings. For instance, the glass surfaces protect the interiors from overheating in the summer and prevent cooling during winter, while the facades of the buildings guarantee thermal insulation. We also achieve energy efficiency thanks to the use of LED lamps equipped with an intelligent control system. During construction, a waste segregation and recycling program will be in place. We have planned to retain a large amount of permeable surface, which helps with high water retention. A dedicated tank, integrated with an irrigation system, also protects against flooding, in case of heavy rainfall. Because we care about making Portowo green, we plan to plant around 50,000 flowering perennials, 25,000 shrubs and 500 adult trees. All buildings will be covered with green roofs, which will increase the biologically active area.
After the construction is completed, we will apply for LEED environmental certificate. It confirms that we meet the criteria of sustainable development, e.g. high energy efficiency of buildings.
Window glazing protects the interiors from overheating in the summer and excess cooling in the winter, while the facades of the buildings guarantee thermal insulation.
We also achieve energy efficiency thanks to LED lamps fitted with an intelligent control system.
A waste segregation and recycling program is in place during construction.
We make sure that a large proportion of the area facilitates high water retention. A dedicated retention tank, integrated with the irrigation system, protects against flooding in the event of heavy rainfall.
We care about green. Ultimately, we will plant 500 adult trees, 25,000 shrubs and approximately 50,000 blooming perennials.
We plan to increase the biologically active surface by greening the roofs.
