We build homes; not just houses – ICON Homz.


What are the things that go into building an ICON home? Is it just a mere house with four walls and a ceiling? A house can be a home only when warmth, care and thoughtfulness are added to it. At ICON Homz, we strive to do just this – to ingest meaning and life into our buildings; to erect happy and comfortable homes for our customers.

So what exactly goes into making the ICON home?

Firstly, we pay attention to every tiny detail. A lot of thought goes into the design of the house itself to ensure that space is effectively optimized, eliminating unnecessary and unusable spaces. At the same time, we strive to bring in plenty of natural sunlight and fresh air into each home to add warmth and cheer and try to do away with dark and dingy corners.

Secondly, we always use superior quality construction material. All fittings and work is done by experienced workmen to maintain high quality standards. Knowing that lead can be toxic, we use lead free paints – this will safeguard the health of not only the customer but also our extended family of builders, painters and masons.

All homes are made child friendly – paying special attention to electrical wiring and switches. Plenty of open space is planned so that home owners can enjoy the greenery and indulge in fitness activities. The best amenities are provided coupled with high security. Back-up power is always available during power outages.

We also incorporate the latest designs inour projects –for example, the ICON Sanctuary homes are American styled premium villas. We place ourselves in the shoes of the customer – we try and understand their needs and incorporate them while designing the layout and building plan.

Thus at ICON Homz, every home is an iconic treasure; an invaluable asset with comfort and luxury inter-woven into the fabric of the building!

Corporate social responsibility for builders-Icon Homz

Building homes is equivalent to building a society and a good society thrives on better living standards and a transparent relationship with the governing authorities. From this point of view, it is necessary for the real estate industry to not only provide quality homes at affordable rates but also see to it that greater good to brought on to the larger community.

A builder’s responsibility does not end with constructing apartments and villas. There are many ways in which he can contribute towards a greener and healthier lifestyle for the common man.

Waste management: Once the handover of the apartment is done, the residents form an association of their own to carry out the future proceedings. However, the builder can pitch in to conducting a waste management workshop for the residents and future association and help the association make a smooth transition into an environment-friendly society.

Tie-up with NGOs: there are several NGOs that work towards the upliftment of the underprivileged in the society. Builders could tie-up with one of these that work towards the cause they support and organize regular donation drives or workshops in which the residents can whole-heartedly contribute.

Turning your home into an eco-friendly home – Icon Infra Shelters India PVT.Ltd

Many of us would consider ourselves educated and evolved people who care about the society, its well-being, so much so that the increasingly detrimental issues to our environment will send us into heated debates and discussions about how to save this planet. However, while it is good and imperative to worry about the society at large, we also need to know and understand that small changes make a bigger impact and these changes need to start from our homes.

Here are a few tips to conserve resources and help convert your home into an eco-friendly home.

Using energy-efficient applications: Ensure that all the applications in your home work to their optimum capacity and are in perfect condition, so that they do not consume extra power. Also, wherever possible use the ones that use lesser power and fuel.

Using CFL bulbs: Compact fluorescent bulbs consume lesser energy and consequently your monthly bills will be lower. They come in a variety of shapes and lighting hues, so you don’t feel the need for incandescent light bulbs.

Check the load of the washing machine: Under-loading is as bad as over-loading. Multiple cycles of smaller quantities will use up a lot more of the energy. So wait until you have the optimum load of laundry and resist using the machine often for fewer numbers of clothes.

Use Bamboo flooring: Nowadays we have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to flooring. Bamboo floors not only look good but are also an eco-friendly option.

Un-plug electric applications from the sockets when not in use: Appliances drain electricity, even when they are on switched off mode. So, always un-plug those off sockets, especially when going out of station.

 Conserve water: Avoid wastage of water in every possible manner by ensuring that the taps are closed while brushing the teeth, collecting and re-using rejected water from the RO units, plugging leaking taps immediately and being judicious in using water for daily activities.

Recycle waste: Whenever and wherever possible, use eco-friendly material and say No to plastic bags. Waste needs to be segregated at source. Use rechargeable batteries. Re-cycled and up-cycled goods are in vogue and look classy too. Bring out the creative juices to make the best out of waste. There are also plenty of organizations and creative people out there who would do it for you.

Icon ensures that the natural resources are conserved. We also believe in preserving the nature and ensure we have a lot of open and green landscapes in our properties. Do visit our website http://iconipl.com/ for more details on our projects.
