Danube to reduce maintenance cost in its properties with smart systems
Danube Properties and Johnson Controls to deploy the latest green and energy-efficient technologies in properties to make homes smart, intelligent and sustainable – to ensure lower maintenance costs and longer building life
Dubai-based Danube Properties has partnered with Johnson Controls, as part of its mission and in line with the UAE Government’s vision to deliver energy efficient, green, smart and sustainable development.
All Danube Properties projects will become energy efficient, green, smart and sustainable with the latest technology products that will reduce energy usage and bills.
Buildings are responsible for an overall 36% of global final energy consumption and nearly 40% of total direct and indirect CO2 emissions, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).
“Energy demand from buildings and buildings construction continues to rise, driven by improved access to energy in developing countries, greater ownership and use of energy-consuming devices, and rapid growth in global buildings floor area, at nearly 3% per year,” IEA says.
Atif Rahman, director and partner of Danube Properties said. “We have gone a step ahead by initiating smart and sustainable home technologies that offer better value to our customers by making their homes more energy efficient and smart, with the same price.
Claude Allain, VP and general manager of Johnson Controls Middle East and Africa said: “Energy emerges as a critical economic driver due to high demand vs. unsustainable supplies and hence energy-efficient buildings are a necessity each day for a sustainable world.”
Launched in June 2014, Danube Properties has so far launched 11 projects, tendered out 10 projects for construction and delivered four projects so far. Its development portfolio involved 4,744 units, worth US$1 billion (Dh3.67 billion).
