The HCT GreenNest’s strategy in the eco house design is to integrate the Omani culture and tradition to the modern approach of building a house. Keeping in mind the diverse environment of Oman, the house is built on solid concrete core as the foundation of this strong and tough structure. Without using any huge pillars which are commonly found in buildings and take up a lot of space, HCT GreenNest used insulated concrete form, freeing up space in the first floor the house.  The construction team used eco-friendly and recyclable materials in almost all aspects of the house.


WALL SYSTEM

A popular material in the construction industry, the Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) has been tested and proven to be eco-friendly. The walls are made slimmer and tougher compared to traditional walls. The ICF’s easy installation saves cost and time. It is fire-resistant and can withstand high impact and strong winds. Its ability to resist high temperature is essential in the extreme weather of Oman.

Oman’s identity is distinctively reflected in the HCT GreenNest Eco house. It values the importance of nature and exemplifies a green environment.




Double glazed windows are double glass window panes separated by an air space to reduce heat transfer of the whole building envelope.
