AFI Europe Romania enters ROGBC’s Pre-Certification phase as Green Project with AFI City’s first 2 residential buildings developed by the company in Bucharest.
Representatives of the company inform in a press release that AFI Europe Romania endorses sustainability and high quality standards, increased awareness of energy efficiency and its importance in the construction phase of the project.
The certification process for green homes measures eight distinct components of sustainability: environmental leadership, ongoing performance, sustainable sites, water efficiency, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, health and wellbeing, innovation, as well as energy performance. Achieving the pre-certification phase gets AFI City’s apartment buyers the opportunity in enrolling in the Green Mortgage program, awarding a whole new series of benefits to future householders by certain banks as Alpha Bank Romania and Raiffeisen.
The Green Home Pre-certification phase converts AFI City in one of the residential projects of which value will rise over the years, with very tangible benefits in terms of the savings generated by improved insulation, reduced water consumption, lowering total energy consumption, more efficient heating, better air conditions or natural ventilation. These lead, additionally, to significantly healthier living environment and an overall improved life experience for the whole family.
“Going green is the future and with AFI City’s pre-certification we are providing our buyers a well designed sustainable project that is also considered as a better and more appreciated project by financing banks through the green home mortgage program. One potential buyers need to factor in the added appreciation value – as green homes will have the highest resale value on the residential property market. We are one step closer into becoming the best deal on the market for AFI City’s future residents”, declares Tal Roma, Business Development Manager, AFI Europe Romania.
“To get ROGBC’s certification, the developer of a residential project needs to meet certain mandatory requirements and obtain a certain amount of ‘green’ credits. Projects can qualify for pre-certification once the developer in question has incorporated ROGBC’s requirements in the project’s design and submitted the relevant documents to our organization. The final ROGBC certification is awarded once the project is complete”, adds Elena Rastei, Certification Coordinator, Romanian Green Building Council.
