Overview

as the first sustainable high-rise in Sri Lanka,

Clearpoint is a unique opportunity to be part of a community living in the lap of luxury whilst contributing towards environmental preservation and eco-friendly development. Overlooking the tributaries of the Diyawanna Lake in Kotte, Clearpoint Residences consist of 164 spacious apartments spread over 46 floors within 10km from Central Colombo.

When construction ends in late 2015, Clearpoint will be the tallest residential vertical garden in the world, with planted terraces circling the entire structure and inbuilt self-sustaining watering systems. Measures will be in place to reduce energy and water consumption, including the use of solar energy for communal spaces.

Designed by Milroy Perera Associates (Pvt.) Ltd., Clearpoint will be pioneering sustainable residences in Sri Lanka, with the aim of taking urban living forward while still maintaining a balance with nature and the surrounding environment, the main focus of the apartments being to create a sentiment of ground level living.

Clear Point Residencies is a joint venture between

Sustainability

Clearpoint Residences has been designed with a clear goal in mind:

"To do whatever is
necessary to provide
the best"

This includes ensuring a structure that survives the tests of time and has minimum impact on the adjacent environs, while concurrently providing a pleasant and secure home for owners. The designer's aim is to offer sophisticated urban living in a serene countryside setting, harking back to the days of yore when one could pluck fruits from the garden and learn firsthand about the birds and butterflies that would frequent it.

Clearpoint Residencies have built in processors which will reduce your carbon foot print and more importantly reduce the maintenance cost across the board. We believe that inhabiting this living tower will be more cost effective than any residence you have lived in before due to the carefully thought out additions that have been provided.

Sustainability

"Design for a better lifestyle"

We believe that inhabiting this living tower will be more cost effective than any residence you have lived in before due to the carefully thought out additions that have been provided.

Windows & Terraces: 
One of the main reasons for heat gain within an apartment is the fact that all apartments in Sri Lanka have windows which are directly exposed to sunlight. To counter this effect, we have consciously designed our entire building with windows that do not receive direct sunlight. We achieve this by extending ordinary balconies into large format terraces. This, while providing the practical benefit of shade, will also provide the occupants with extra external entertainment space.

   
Air Conditioning:
Since the apartments will gain no heat due to direct exposure to sunlight, it was possible to reduce the size of the air conditioners, thus requiring less energy to cool the apartments. In addition, all apartments are cross ventilated for the purpose of cooling the inside naturally.


Planted Terraces:
Planting on the terraces give the building its unique look but there is a more practical reason for the planting. Plants have a natural tendency to absorb sound, both internally and externally. Plants provide shade, cooling the terraces and buffering radiant heat (heat that can reflect off the occupant’s terrace if the tiles heat up). Oxygen produced during the daytime means cleaner air, while leaves act as a natural filter for dust which otherwise enters your apartment. There is also provision for the occupants to grow their own plants.


Automated Drip Irrigation:
An automated drip irrigation system has been incorporated throughout the building so that the gardens are maintained without the occupants having to water the plants. There will be a drip system instead of a sprinkler system which will save water.


Solar Panels:
Solar panels installed on the roof will provide enough energy to power the common amenities such as public and lobby lights, elevators, the grey water recycling system, the sewage recycling system and other public utilities. Any excess power will be sold to the electricity grid using a net metering system.


Rain Water Harvesting:
Rain water will be collected at ground level and used with recycled grey water for toilet flushing and plant irrigation.


Grey Water Recycling System:
One of the main uses of water in apartments is for flushing. In an effort to reduce the water usage, water will be collected from the apartment showers and bathroom sinks, running it through a recycling system which will process the water to be less than 10 BOD (Bio Oxygen demand) The recycled water is mixed with rain water and sent through to the bathroom flushes and is also used in the drip irrigation system (Which means Flushing and the drip irrigation system is free.


Solid Waste Recycling:
Occupant’s Solid waste (with the aid of the occupants) will be separated into glass, paper, plastic and metal on each floor in a garbage room (which will be negatively ventilated so the smells don’t escape into the lift lobby). The trash will them be collected and sold to the relevant authorities. The money earned from this process will be used to maintain the building, once again cutting down on the cost of maintenance.
