Alesonor, the first green residential villa developer in Romania, and Holcim Romania Group, one of the largest producers of building materials, announce their partnership for the sustainable construction of Amber Forest complete suburb. The partnership will secure high-quality and innovative construction materials for Amber Forest buildings.
In order to achieve Amber Forest high quality construction standards, to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the project and to build environmentally responsible buildings, Alesonor selected Holcim Romania’s ECOPact, the company’s low carbon concrete range. The solutions offered by Holcim contribute significantly to the reduction of the CO2 footprint of the constructions, the suburb thus benefiting from a low carbon footprint in terms of structure and, implicitly, optimized values in the life cycle assessment.
„We are driven by an unmatched commitment to achieve outstanding standards in the development of high-quality, energy-efficient and environmentally responsible buildings. And we are always looking to integrate state-of-the-art solutions, from partners that share the same commitment for sustainability. We are happy to set the basis for a long-term partnership with Holcim Romania and together to raise the bar for responsible residential developments.”, said Alex Skouras, Managing Partner Alesonor.
“We are glad to be able to contribute with our ECO solutions to the realization of one of the most important residential projects in Romania – Amber Forest. Such projects illustrate the future of the environment, as Holcim wants it to be: innovative, sustainable, better for future generations.”, pointed Anca Alexandru, Ready-Mix Director at Holcim Romania Group.
Amber Forest homes are the first homes in Romania that meet the NZEB energy standard, set by the European Union since 2021. The construction works for the first stage of the project started at the beginning of the year, with Holcim Group Romania providing its best solution, ECOPact. With reduced embodied carbon, ECOPact is better for the environment, combining the very best qualities of conventional concrete with the low carbon emissions performance.
