This year’s theme is ‘Go Green with Affordable Housing’.
The ‘Going Green’ concept is learning and practicing an environmentally-mindful lifestyle that contributes towards protecting the environment and preservation and conservation of the natural resources, habitats, and biodiversity.
It involves environmental preservation through reducing, reusing, and recycling items.
The Chief Executive of ‘RG Consult Inc’, the event organizers, Mr. Remmygious told Igihe, that this Property Bazaar will offer clients an opportunity to strike deals, shop for houses/ homes and other property-related materials during the 5-day experience.
Mr. Remmygious also said that there is a lot that players in the real estate business can pick from the bazaar but most importantly, those who are interested in building or purchasing environmentally friendly homes have much more to gain.
He pointed out that this is an opportunity for those in the industry or those interested in joining, to learn about the new and modern ‘green construction methods’ that can save construction companies money during the building process and save home purchasers money when they move in.
“It’s important that we practice green living because healthy living requires it. We need to preserve clean air, food, safe drinking water and getting resilient to the harsh effects of climate. If indeed we are interested in avoiding issues of global warming and life-threatening illnesses, going green is the only answer,” he said.
The advantages for contractors include recycling certain materials and minimizing construction waste.
Kigali City has been transitioning into a ‘green city’ for years now.
Last month, the Kigali Green City project received its first capital injection from the German government through KFW Development Bank worth €10 million (Approximately Rwf 10 billion).
The Green City Kigali is a model green city to be developed on 620ha in Kinyinya Sector, Gasabo District at an estimated $1.5 billion.
The model city will be a pilot project in green urbanization and will serve to establish the viability of green cities in Rwanda and possible replication across the country.
Several companies that are expected to participate in this year’s Bazaar include ‘DND Developers’, ‘Phoenix Plaza’, ‘Silk Plaster Rwanda’, ‘House In Rwanda’, ‘Remote Group’, ‘Troika Design Workshop’, ‘Savanna Creek’, ‘Kigali Heights’, ‘Rwanda Housing Authority’ and ‘IN My Seat’, Riverside City Estate,’ among others.
