INNOVATIVE NEW HOUSE BUILDING PROJECT IN LETTERKENNY CREATING “A” RATED ENERGY EFFICIENT HOMES

first_imgOne of the “A” rated energy efficient new houses at Rann Mor Meadow, Letterkenny.An innovative and exciting new building project, of ‘A’ rated energy efficient homes is well-underway in Letterkenny and is the first of its kind in the town.The wonderfully designed modern homes have unsurprisingly attracted a significant amount of interest from potential homeowners.It’s been well documented over the last number of months that the property market is making a significant recovery in Ireland for the first time since the collapse of the economy. However, there are suggestions that while the property market is certainly on the road to recovery in Dublin, there’s been little activity outside of the capital.But that belief is being disregarded with the exciting and innovative new project at Rann Mor Meadow in Letterkenny well underway.The project is also giving the local construction industry in the county and the local economy in general a huge lift.The location of Rann Mor Meadow is fantastic, it’s located just off the Rahan Road, and is only a few minutes drive from Letterkenny. The homes are located on an elevated site that provide absolutely wonderful views of Letterkenny.GDC (Ireland) Limited are building the 59 modern homes, that incorporate a whole range of energy efficient features that really make them stand out.GDC (Ireland) has established a stellar reputation over the years for their excellence in building quality homes and consistently setting new standards and thoroughly completing their development.They’ve shown great initiative and fortitude to design these wonderful new homes against a backdrop of one of most difficult periods in the construction industry in Ireland.Managing Director Daniel Doherty also added, that there are very few of this standard and specification of houses anywhere in the country. Daniel told Donegal Daily, “Phase one of the homes is currently under construction, they include solar panels, triple glazed windows, extra thick cavity block walls with added insulation, supreme air tightness, and heating control zones.“With combined condensing oil fired central heating, and a solid fuel back boiler stove linked to the central heating system, this all leads to huge savings in energy costs over the lifetime of these houses, he added.These innovative and exciting new houses will undoubtedly raise the bar when it comes to energy efficient homes in Donegal. This is now what people want and expect and we are here to give it to them.The project also signifies that there is real signs of the economy picking up again, and any increase in activity in the construction sector has a real spin-off for the local economy. “House prices have plummeted since the Celtic Tiger days, but there is now a growing realisation that this is a very good time to buy with considerable value in the marketplace.“Three bedroom semi-detached “A” rated BER energy efficient houses at Rann Mor Meadow are available at just €122,500 in phase 1, he concluded.Such is the quality and innovation of the Rann Mor Meadow development, that at a starting price of €122,500, it’s little wonder that these homes are already attracting such a huge interest among potential homeowners.For further information contact: GDC (IRL) LTD Property Developers on 074 93 84700, email: info@gdcirl.com or visit www.gdcirl.com or http://www.gdcirl.com Sherry Fitzgerald 0n 074 9122211, email: property@sfr.ie or visit www.sfr.ie or visit http://www.sfr.ieINNOVATIVE NEW HOUSE BUILDING PROJECT IN LETTERKENNY CREATING “A” RATED ENERGY EFFICIENT HOMES was last modified: October 14th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BusinessFeaturesnewslast_img read more

India Among Worst Nations In Curbing Pollution

first_imgIndia is the fourth worst country worldwide in curbing environmental pollution, according to global Environmental Performance Index rankings released on Jan. 23. The rankings, in which India is placed at the 177th spot in a list of 180 countries, was released on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum meet in Davos, Switzerland. India now ranks 36 places down from its 141st position two years ago.The Environmental Performance Index ranks countries on 24 performance indicators across 10 issue categories covering environmental health and ecosystem vitality. “India and Bangladesh come in near the bottom of the rankings, with Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Nepal rounding out the bottom five,” the report says. The biennial report by the World Economic Forum was prepared in collaboration with Yale and Columbia Universities.The index “reflects important trends in environmental performance at both the national and global levels.” The report said that the global community was generally improving on a number of issues, such as health outcomes related to drinking water and sanitation and protection of marine ecosystems, while significant challenges remain on other issues.The low ranking of the emerging economies — China and India — reflects “the strain population pressures and rapid economic growth impose on the environment,” the report noted. Substantial populations still suffer from poor air quality, most notably in India, China, and Pakistan. “India faces a public health crisis that demands urgent attention,” it said, adding that unlike China, India has made little progress to decrease levels of air pollution. China and Pakistan occupy the 120th and 169th positions, respectively.The low scores on the Environmental Performance Index are indicative of the need for national sustainability efforts on a number of fronts, including cleaning up air quality, protecting biodiversity and reducing GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. Some of the lowest-ranking nations face “broader challenges (like) civil unrest but the low scores for others can be attributed to weak governance,” the report said.India ranked 178 in air quality, 145 in water and sanitation, and 175 in heavy metals. The country was at No.125 in agriculture, 131 in air pollution, 139 in biodiversity and habitat, 120 in climate and energy, 53 in fisheries, 68 in forests and 107 in water resources.Switzerland leads the world in sustainability, followed by France, Denmark, Malta and Sweden.The leading environmental threat to public health all over the world is air quality, the report pointed out.“As the world community pursues new sustainable development goals, policymakers need to know who is leading and who is lagging on energy and environmental challenges,” Daniel C. Esty, the Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy, said. “The 2018 EPI confirms that success with regard to sustainable development requires both economic progress that generates the resources to invest in environmental infrastructure and careful management of industrialization and urbanization that can lead to pollution that threatens both public health and ecosystems.” Related ItemsDavosEnvironmentPollutionlast_img read more
