Smart sustainable GFRG homes
Wednesday, June 28, 2017
"Be the change you want to see" When was the last time you ever heard of a construction startup ? Did they use any new technology ? Was it eco-friendly? That's who we are. Cityrene builds smart sustainable homes using Australian technology GFRG (Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum). Houses are powered by solar, generates drinking water out of thin air, recycles the grey-water and bio-degradable waste efficiently. Not just sustainable our homes are "SMART", can you monitor your daily power, water and data usage through a mobile application? Does your builder takes care of renting out your home and transfer rent to your bank account? Recently Chennai was affected by floods and storm, people were stranded without power and water (including us). We decided to be the change we wanted to see. In the mid of 2016, Cityrene was incubated by the Founder institute, a well renowned global incubator of startups. Transformation began there, at every point the idea was pivoted and refined. A well established group of local and global mentors, most of them are Founders and CEO’s began to test the financial model,market size and viability of the company. And within a short span of time of 4 months, the company Cityrene was not just an idea it was incorporated as a private limited company with senior board of directors and a well experienced team of advisors. Cityrene uses some of the unique “think out of the box” techniques to build luxury living spaces and communities with state of the art architectural multi-purpose design, the likes of which no residential project in Chennai has ever seen before.
