Looking To The Future
Quick Gallery

Construction presents important opportunities for innovation. Current competitive conditions and owner demands for cost effectiveness provide strong incentives. Examining mechanisms for innovation rather than barriers to technical progress is one means we stimulate growth. At PHL we describe several advantages and disadvantages which the construction industry presents for innovation.

These advantages include project organization, necessity and challenge, engineering and construction integration, low capital investment, capability and experience of key personnel, process emphasis, and variation in methods. Also, major disadvantages for construction such as investment reluctance, competitive conditions, institutional framework, seasonal and economic cyclist, and the role of suppliers.

Based on these conditions, we have developed a set of hypotheses (project demands, individual initiative, construction input to design, and transfer from other industries) concerning possible mechanisms for innovation in construction.

Sustainability is the use of limited natural resources in such a way that we do not run out of them in the future. At PHL, our intelligent design and planning ensures that our customers do not have to worry about any disruption in their daily lives due to electricity and water. The various energy conservation initiatives we have taken will benefit residents by lowering monthly electricity and maintenance bills, while at the same time assuring all basic infrastructures.

PHL makes conscious choices towards sustainable development in all aspects of our projects. Social and economic factors are key drivers in evolving processes and adopting innovations to achieve sustainability. Four broad principles have been evolved to guide sustainable development in our projects in a mutually balanced manner as follows:

1.    Managing water resources in a responsible manner
2.    Managing and creating wealth from waste in the community
3.    Reducing the overall energy consumption of our developments
4.    Building a community aware of its responsibility towards sustainability

These principles will be adhered to in our various projects, from planning to construction and community building

Visual Insight To Our Technology
What We Do
Globally Accepted Solutions

Practical habitat limited as a housing solution company have established a specific aim to change the way construction services are provided: ranging from our Pre-construction Consulting, Design Advice, Construction Management, Residential Construction and Building Maintenance.

 

We believe innovation is the critical success factor for any sustainable building project. Our innovation is evident in the building technology we adopt for our projects. Our major building techniques include; precast concrete panels, poured in place concrete molds, light steel frame structures, lumber frame structures and burnt bricks.

 

Using precast concrete wall micro plants, we have been able to achieve high speed of construction, high strength, quality finishes and durable houses at affordable prices. We have perfected the use of aluminum for our residential concrete structures, concrete foundations and cast-in-place concrete walls to further expand our technology for quality affordable mass housing.
