Nam Cuong Corporation: “Greening” the township of 200 hectares

With the determination to build the first Zero-Energy Township in Vietnam, Nam Cuong Corporation’s investors are stepping up the “greening” of the Duong Noi Township through investment in planting thousands of trees covering nearly 200 hectares.

According to the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group (WB), the demand for construction in developing countries is growing rapidly every year. It is expected that by 2030, more than 50% of the new construction will be concentrated in Asia. With this rapid urbanization rate, it is expected that by 2025 Vietnam will have 1,000 townships. This development also has many consequences, such as causing adverse effects on the ecological environment.

Therefore, Nam Cuong Corporation always prioritizes human factors and sustainable development as a guideline in their activities. Nam Cuong Corporation has set the goal, from now up to 2020, that all of its works will achieve international green certificates, orienting the development of energy-balanced townships.

Continuing the series of practical activities towards reaching these targets, thousands of trees were planted in the Duong Noi Township covering nearly 200 ha. Most of them are shade trees with a number of diversified species, making the Duong Noi Township a “huge green lung” in the south-western of Hanoi.

Along the 40m, 27m, 11m in width roads throughout the Duong Noi Township, the 5-6 m in height trees has been planted and beautifully designed.

The construction of this living environment, with a focus on green investment, will contribute to the creation of unique projects in townships. In addition, the forms of community space in the Duong Noi Township were created through the language of design and unique architecture, creating impressive points such as the 12-ha Astronomy Park, the 2000m2 Childhood’s Garden, and the Lake Music Park.

Nam Cuong Corporation understands that developing green townships is a difficult but urgent task to ensure sustainable development. In the ongoing projects of Nam Cuong Corporation, the Duong Noi Township is considered as a model for sustainable urban planning and development through the building and development of green buildings with international certification, working with prestigious partners in the country and around the world, and organizing workshops to share experiences of building green spaces.

Following the success of the international workshop “Developing the first energy-balanced Township in Vietnam” (in March, 2017), cooperation in developing green buildings with prestigious international organizations such as the IFC (World Bank Group), Slavia Capital International Investment Group, Panasonic, the Italian landscape development company EGO Group, and most recently, the investment in planting thousands of trees in the Duong Noi Township, Nam Cuong Corporation has been laying the foundation for the construction of sustainable green cities. Those efforts are evidenced by specific markers such as, in April and June of this year, Anland Complex became the first green project of Nam Cuong Corporation certified by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and one of 16 projects funded by the project management board, “Lifting high energy efficiency in commercial buildings and high-rise apartment buildings”, under the Ministry of Construction in order to conduct energy saving projects in Vietnam.

In April, 2017, Anland Complex became the first apartment project of Nam Cuong Corporation that gained the Certificate of Excellence in Design for Greater Eddiciency (EDGE)

Nam Cuong Corporation’s representative said: “With the effort to “green” the Duong Noi Township by planting more than 2,000 trees, Nam Cuong Corporation once again affirmed its commitment to creating comprehensive and sustainable green buildings. At the same time, they are responsible for protecting the environment and improving the quality of life of the Vietnamese people.”

Developing green township projects in the city is gradually becoming a trend, not only in Vietnam but also in the future. Nam Cuong Corporation is proud to be among the first investors to build in the Duong Noi Township, with the first energy-balanced project in Vietnam, contributing to creating a new dimension in urban architecture and bringing quality living space directly to the community.
