The main challenge is to provide an envelope that would reduce the heat lose & heat gain, we have attained this by designing building envelope which is airtight with the help of latest construction technologies and building materials such as high performance DGU glass panels for all windows & glazing along with multi-layered wall system (ACC Block + EIFS + Fins) composed of thermal resistance building materials with EIFS systems outside. This well insulated adobe, help in reduce the energy consumption on HVAC systems.
