Damosa tower vies to be certified for sustainability

THE nearly completed Damosa Land, Inc. building called Damosa Diamond Tower is vying to be the first in Davao to achieve a Berde and Edge certification for its environment-friendly details.

“This iconic structure is a testament to the economic dynamism and potentials of Davao City,” said Damosa Land, Inc. President Cary F. Lagdameo in a statement.

Damosa Diamond Tower is located in Davao City’s Damosa IT Park.

A certification for Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence, or Berde, means passing sustainable and environmentally friendly policies. Edge, which stands for Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies, confirms a building’s cost-effective ways to put in energy and water saving options.

Damosa Land is working to make the 20,000-square meter building attractive to business entities that put sustainability on top of their priorities.

The building boasts of LED lighting, solar panels, and eco-friendly insulation, among many of its green features.

Damosa Diamond Tower also highlighted in its design some agricultural elements, including banana plant fiber lines — a homage to Damosa Land’s strong Mindanaoan heritage.

The developer received several awards such as the Philippines Property Awards Best Office Development in 2020, Best Office Architectural Design in 2019, Highly Commended for Best BPO Office Development in 2019, and Highly Commended for Best Office Development in 2019.

“[Damosa Land] is committed to opening this office building on time, despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, so that we can achieve our vision of creating a knowledge hub that would further establish Davao as an economic powerhouse in the southern Philippines,” Mr. Lagdameo added.

SGV & Co., a member firm of Ernst & Young Global Ltd., will be moving its Davao branch to the Damosa Diamond Tower upon its completion.

“We are honored that SGV & Co., a professional services leader, has confirmed its intent to locate its Davao branch office at Damosa Diamond Tower,” Mr. Lagdameo said. — Keren Concepcion G. Valmonte
