Sime plans green township

KUALA LUMPUR: Sime Darby Property Bhd aimed to be the industry leader by introducing a new system of property development that supports carbon neutrality using renewable energy and recycled materials, said managing director Datuk Tunku Putra Badlishah.

“We hope to revolutionise the local market with the introduction of Sime Darby Idea House project, a carbon-neutral concept dwelling that shows how sustainable housing can be developed to minimise mankind’s impact on the environment and the depleting natural resources,” he said.

Tunku Putra said this yesterday at the signing of technical collaborative agreements between Sime Darby and some of the world’s leading green technology and solutions providers.

The tie-up brought together 16 companies that offer the best innovation, solutions and technologies available in their respective fields to improve energy efficiency in homes and reduce the consumption-limited resources.

Tunku Putra said a common house needed 18 to 22 months for completion but the Sime Darby Idea House project took only six months, using modern methods of construction (pre-fabrication and modularisation).

“This will reduce the time of construction and, at the same time, reduce the financial and resource burden,” he said, adding that the project, located at Denai Alam along Guthrie Corridor Expressway, would be open to the public early next month.

Tunku Putra said the prototype house would be rolled out for future property developments but the timeframe would depend on public demand.

“It may be costly to have that kind of house but in the long term, it will save you money as you are using renewable energy,” he said.
