The Contec Global Group has witnessed remarkable growth not just organically as an enterprise, but also geographically, as well as in terms of the acquisition of parallel assets. The Group has accumulated substantial real estate assets, which have, as a natural progression, come to form a core aspect of its activities in the Infrastructure sector.

The driving vision of the Group’s Infrastructure sector activities is to promote development that is both profitable as well as protects and improves the natural environment.

We believe that in order to be truly sustainable,

development must not only protect beneficial environmental functions, but must also rectify and improve systems degraded by past disturbances. We recognize that not only does the technology exist to achieve this objective, but that sustainable development practices cost no more than conventional approaches to implement.

Further, sustainable development will reduce long term maintenance costs, enhance property values, and improve the quality of life in our communities.

The long term principles that guide Contec Global’s Infrastructure and development initiatives are to:

  • minimize the total consumption of land, particularly the creation of impervious surfaces, by new development.
  • utilize existing infrastructure by maximizing infill and redevelopment.
  • maintain and re-establish functional natural systems: soils, plants and water.
  • minimize disturbance of soil structure and topography.
  • develop landscapes in a sustainable manner, utilizing a diversity of native plant species.
  • manage precipitation as a resource close to where it falls, not as a disposable waste product.
  • utilize the landscape to naturally filter and infiltrate runoff before it leaves the development site.
  • eliminate adverse off-site and downstream effects of runoff and wastewater
  • maximize, interconnect, and restore natural open space.
  • maximize opportunities for local access to open space.
  • establish administrative and financial mechanisms for the long-term management of the natural elements of developed sites.
  • assess cost-effectiveness of sustainable designs based on their long-term, life cycle costs.
