Connovate Philippines Pioneers Concrete Building Tech with Less CO2 Emissions and 100 Years Material Lifespan

March 02, 2018

Connovate Philippines Inc. and Imperial Homes Corp are making history in the Philippine real estate scene as the first adopter of Connovate in the country. Connovate, a construction breakthrough from Denmark, is a high-performance concrete building technology that offers less carbon footprint, 100 years material lifespan, fast construction, and insulation abilities, among other innovative features.
Connovate Philippines Inc. acquired the exclusive production licensing agreement from Connovate Denmark. Imperial Homes Corp. is the first developer to use the Connovate technology in the Philippines and to produce it for low-cost mass housing projects designed to better the lives of low-income Filipinos.


The housing line is called Imperial Lifetime Homes, the first lifetime home in the country and the company’s second generation of solar-powered low-cost housing, which will make its debut at Via Verde in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.
The automated Danish factory for Connovate, located in Silang, Cavite, has a full capacity of two houses per day production. As a result, it now has a Philippine record of the fastest developer with the installation of 6 ground floor units a day.
Due to construction speed, Connovate Philippines Inc. addresses one of the biggest problems in the country’s housing backlog. Many low-cost housing developers could not meet the deadline to deliver quality homes to its buyers, resulting in poor quality homes that can last for 30 years only.


“The Connovate technology is a better investment for developers as it is the only panel system in the country that can meet three major goals: cost-efficiency with faster construction, green solutions for climate change, and health benefits,” says Engr. Ramir Padilla, President of Connovate Philippines.   

The panels are produced with less cement since cement production accounts for 5% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Add to that the fact that the panels can last a lifetime. Therefore, Connovate lessens the need for cement production to rebuild a structure after 30 years unlike non-Connovate developments. As a result, Connovate reduces the carbon footprint for developers.
“Each Connovate home can save up to 4.4 tons of CO2 emissions per 100 years. Connovate Philippines and Imperial Homes Corp. are the only companies in the country who are able to do this unprecedented move,” says Engr. Ramir Padilla, President of Connovate Philippines.   
Slim, compact and light-weight, the panels have the strength of 14,000 psi, can withstand up to 1,000-degree heat, and are resistant to molds, pests and deterioration. It is scalable to all building types and has insulation features, which make the panels perfect for different residential or commercial structures.
“The Connovate technology marks the new era of real estate development in the Philippines with green solutions, 100 years material lifespan, fast construction and more unprecedented innovations,” says Engr. Ramir Padilla, President of Connovate Philippines. “We hope that this technology will inspire developers to follow in our footsteps in building world-class green projects that can last a lifetime. If you don’t build green homes that last 100 years, maybe you shouldn’t call yourself a developer.”
