Chad Oppenheim unveiled first certified “Green Project” in the Philippines, under the county’s own new green building rating system, BERDE (Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence). As the first design under the BERDE rating system, the Net Lima, is one of three towers under construction at Net Metropolis. An incredible and sustainable development in the Philippines, this feat is being led by top developer, Net Group.

Due to the intense tropical environment of the Philippines, the Net Lima will showcase several green firsts within the local market. One of the most prominent sustainable features is the building’s façade, a combination sun shading and high performance glass curtain that minimizes incident solar heat gain and optimizes natural light while giving occupants a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.

Compared to USGBC’s LEED system, the BERDE responds directly to the ecological needs of Filipinos in their own environment.
