DAVAO, PHILIPPINES—Ecoliving at its finest—this is beautifully exemplified by Agriya, an 88-hectare agritourism development located in Panabo City, Davao del Norte, and winner of the Best Residential Green Development award at the 2020 PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards. An agropolis with residential, commercial, institutional and agritourism zones, Agriya is all about blending nature with modern life.
A project of Davao-based Damosa Land Inc. (DLI), Agriya showcases the company’s efforts to promote sustainability in its projects. At the heart of DLI’s efforts to redefine ecoliving is its partnership with Connovate Philippines, Inc., which has made it possible to cut Agriya’s carbon footprint.
Through a licensing agreement with Connovate Denmark, the company uses a high-performance concrete building technology with a 100-year material lifespan, as well as fast construction and insulation abilities, all of which significantly cut down carbon emissions. At the same time, it reduces construction costs throughout the entire building process.
The visionary company behind Agriya, Damosa Land, is a homegrown property developer that has redefined real estate development in Mindanao with its vision of an agropolis. It brings to life its deep connection to agriculture in all of its projects, while at the same time paying homage to the rich culture of Mindanao. It belongs to the Anflo Management and Investment Corporation (ANFLOCOR) established by Don Antonio Floirendo, with business interests across various sectors.
In 2019, Damosa and Connovate sealed a partnership to set up Connovate’s factory in Anflo Industrial Estate in Panabo City and supply Damosa Land with Connovate building panels. This will enable Damosa Land to reduce its carbon footprint as it pursues the development of its various properties, which is the main reason why the company received Special Recognition for Sustainable Construction also by PropertyGuru. The Connovate factory has recently gone full blast in its operation in the ecozone.
“We are proud that our efforts to build an eco-friendly project and to reduce our carbon footprint has been recognized. This award puts the spotlight on Damosa Land’s commitment to building an environmentally sustainable future not only for the company but for the whole of Mindanao,” concluded Cary Lagdameo, First Vice President of Damosa Land.
