Green Homes - The Real Advantage is Good Health

Green Homes are more than a fashion statement. Many smart and aware property buyers agree that smart, sustainable green homes are becoming a necessity. Green homes are structures that ensure efficient use of natural resources like building materials, water, energy and other resources with minimal generation of non-degradable waste. The growing number of buildings have a vast impact on the natural environment, human health, and the economy. CMRS Group adopts significant Green Home practices efficiently to benefit you in three different ways, the biggest of them is Good health.

You can't put a monetary value on quality of life. 
How much, for example, would you pay to enjoy a less-stressful day, or to avoid catching the flu? 

When all of the aforementioned benefits to green architecture and sustainable design are added up, the enhanced lifestyles shared by all of society makes sense, both economically and environmentally. 

Environmental

  • Improve air and water quality
  • Reduce waste streams
  • Conserve and restore natural resources

Economic

  • Reduce operating costs
  • Improve occupant productivity
  • Optimize life-cycle economic performance

Personal

  • Enhance occupant comfort and health
  • Heighten aesthetic qualities
  • Improve overall quality of life

How does it work?

Technologies like efficient cooling systems have sensors that can sense the heat generated from human body and automatically adjust the room temperature, saving energy.It applies to lighting systems too. Green buildings have a smarter lighting system that automatically switches off when no one is present inside the rooms. Simple technologies like air based flushing system in toilets that avoids water use by 100%, use of energy efficient LEDs and CFLs instead of conventional incandescent lamp, new generation appliances that consume less energy, and many other options help in making the buildings green and make them different from conventional ones.

As we move into an era of smarter technology and more expensive natural resources, we can't afford not to build green.


A green building does not come cheap. It will cost more. But one should look at the incremental cost in relation to the life cycle cost. According to IGBC, in terms of the building’s life cycle, the operating cost would be 80-85% of the capital cost, while the incremental one-time cost is only about 8-10%. Due to the substantial reduction in operational cost, the total cost of ownership of green buildings is lesser than that of conventional buildings. A developer offering a project that adheres to green building norms will usually charge a premium. CMRS Group builds green building which comes at a price comparable to non-green buildings. Thus you enjoy the lower initial cost and enjoy the cost savings for years to come!

Occupation Certificate (OC), the Hot Item which is rarely SERVED by Builders

Do you know the BDA had sanctioned the building plan and issued CC and OC for Mantri Tranquil project, but BESCOM disconnected the electricity finding the violations?

The reason, the BDA ignored the fact that the project was within BBMP limits and that the two blocks of the Mantri Tranquil were built on the storm water drain! The fact remains that the property buyers don't know the importance and meaning of occupation certificate in its true sense. This information asymmetry allows a builder to take customers for a ride.




It can be assumed and granted that the small budget homes will be made with little deviations and occupation certificate for the same should not be expected. Such homes have to wait for akarma sakarma to pay the penalty and regularise the construction to get the occupation certificate.

But how can you forgive the builders, who charge upwards of 75 lacs and do not provide valid and appropriate occupancy certificate?

Without OC, the building is technically unfit for occ…
