Domopan to showcase ‘green’ techniques
Doha, March 2, 2011
Domopan Construction, a leading provider of eco-friendly building solutions in Qatar, will showcase its building techniques during at an ongoing green construction conference in Doha.
Green Building Solutions Conference and Exhibition opened today (March 2) and will run up to March 4.
Domopan will present its proprietary Domosystem method, providing practical examples of how it can deliver up to 30 per cent savings in energy consumption and 15 per cent savings in total building costs.
Domopan will also announce its long-term strategic plans, particularly in line with Doha's successful bid to host the 2022 Fifa World Cup, a statement said.
"Domopan is fully committed to delivering premium-quality, self-sustaining and eco-friendly building materials and solutions to our customers in Qatar,” said Fouad Hamdan, managing director of Domopan Qatar.
“Demand for green building solutions has particular increased recently in light of new regulations and the government's vision to ensure a more sustainable development of the country."
"The triumphant bid to host the World Cup has only further strengthened the need for high-standard, sustainable building solutions, creating long-term prospects for our business,” added Hamdan.
Domopan's proprietary Domosystem method offers contractors and developers new building techniques and solutions that help save between 25 to 30 per cent in energy consumption compared with traditional systems, the statement said.
Domosystem helps reduce production time by up to 50 per cent and save 15 per cent in building costs, as it is based on lightweight yet strong prefabricated materials that can be easily assembled on site and are manufactured according to quality standards adopted in the US, UK, France, Italy, Germany and the UAE, it added.
Domopan uses expandable polystyrene as a major raw material, which is completely non-toxic and does not contain any gases that contribute to the green house effect, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
