The most advanced engineering knowledge of sustainable construction has been integrated into the development of P.A.T.H.: from selecting high quality and environmentally-friendly construction materials, continuing on through the production and building process and finally resulting in the day-to-day life in your P.A.T.H. That is why we have chosen wood as P.A.T.H.’s main building material: a natural, renewable and recyclable material with an extremely clean and energy-saving lifecycle. Wood also creates a pleasant living environment, as it helps maintain an optimal indoor climate by balancing the humidity in the air and absorbing harmful vapours, gases or unpleasant odours. It is also antistatic, it does not give off harmful substances, nor is it radioactive. The utmost priority has been placed on providing a comfortable living space in which you will be able to enjoy an abundance of natural light, and at the same time keep thermal losses to a minimum. The answer to this lies in an elegant and highly efficient floor-to-ceiling aluminium-glass facade. Committed to further reducing our impact on the environment, each P.A.T.H. makes the best use of renewable energy sources for heating, ventilating and cooling your house. It is designed to integrate the latest smart and green technology of your choice: photovoltaics, solar panels, heat pump, wind turbine or rain water collector, among other. By combining the right equipment to best suit your energy efficiency requirements, Riko’s experts can help you choose the right package to ensure proper energy conservation and responsible resource use. And most importantly – we can help you turn your P.A.T.H. into a zero-energy or even positive-energy home.
