Urban Tree – Green Eco friendly homes at affordable low prices

I am sure my title “Urban Tree – Green Eco friendly homes at affordable low prices” Sounds like oxymoron. Eco friendly products are rather at premium prices, I accept it, then how come affordable low. I have to take you on a Journey or rather how we (bloggers) experienced their facility to give you an understanding of the words they committed.

Last Saturday we had been to Urban Tree office at Nungambakkam

Urban Tree about the company, Briefing

For rest of the bloggers it was their second time to know more about the company, for me it was the first time visit,  Arun Benitto, social media expert of Urban tree, did the briefing about company and what they are looking forward.

MD Abhishek Mehta letting us know about the Urban Tree and it is vision, How they are trying to bring cost down and at the same time building green eco-friendly homes. Urban Tree has decided only to build green eco-friendly homes in the future.

Urban Tree - MD Abhishek Mehta

How do they bring the prices down while able to support quality and give affordable low-cost homes to their customers

  1. Engineering, Procurement & Construction – They have their own infrastructure to build concrete blocks and many more building materials to cut the cost. They procure materials directly from the manufacturer in large quantities.  Engineering is their core strength.
  2. The main USP of Urban Tree which I will also say along with customers who have bought houses from Urban Tree, The Core team from Management to Engineering team meet the end customer for a quarterly meet where customers can directly interact with the MD of Urban Tree and with the core Engineering team. The agenda of the meeting is tell the end customer on the details of their project on how much they have progressed,  even if there is a delay, they are ready to explain the details on why the project is running short of the expected time.
  3. The second USP of Urban Tree is the commitment to the money a customer has made towards buying a flat which they had agreed while booking their flat. No hidden charges, in fact they absorb the increase in amount because they choose to offer new facilities which incur higher costs. For example a glass material which allows more light to flow through but will not allow heat to pass through when compared to usual glass.
  4. The homes are well ventilated, the windows are positioned in such a way that they allow light and at the same time allow more breeze to pass, the window glasses are from Saint Gobain  which allows more light but not the sun’s radiation.
  5. The paints used are non toxic and follow to the norms to the ones which are eco-friendly. These paints are usually costlier than the most available in the market.
  6. They provide thermal roofing, that is one huge benefit for flat owners who are on the top floors.
  7. They use Hemihydrate Calcium Sulfate also known as Plaster of Paris in to the walls to cut the sun’s radiation which translate to heat. Urban tree homes are > 4 degrees cooler than the one which don’t use  green materials also known as eco-friendly materials.
  8. They are trying to offer the best possible solutions to cut carbon footprint, they are installing CFL or LED lights at the corridors and street lamps. In fact they have planning to install solar panels in their upcoming projects to cut power consumptions.
  9. For sure the employees to MD of Urban Tree are deep-rooted and ingrained in to the them to offer good service.

I have few quick questions for the MD

  1. ME: There are few hoarding which say “while we build we pay your rent” etc what is it all about, do you offer anything of that sort
    MD: There is nothing which comes free,  As a builder they do these types of project, but there is ethics in business. Find the pricing of mine with one who offers “we pay your rent” in terms of per square feet rate and you will understand, what the difference is
  2. ME: I observed none of them wear footwear in office, why?
    MD: We believe Office is place of worship, None of wear footwear, including me (smiles)

After few more question & answers it was already late to visit their sites to have an understanding of their facilities which they are offering

Hunger strikes – we had a sumptuous lunch, and headed for their site

The pipes was a huge distraction

The pipes was a huge distraction

As these project had few floors, the natural tendency of the house owner is to come to roof top and have a good walk and spend some time with nature, for Kids their play ground is gone, no more hide and seek, well I got grown up this way. May be there is reason why these pipes are being lay down in this fashion, could be easy repairs.

Urban Tree – Fantastic is their latest project and this site is closer to lots of School, colleges and offices. This site is already been making huge noises and causing worries among other builders and customers have flocked around. So don’t wait too long to buy, don’t miss  the opportunity.

If you in the process of evaluating Urban tree, I would suggest you take a first hand experience of the state of the art green homes facilities at Oxygen.

P.S: Before you buy, do ask the representative about how eco-friendly is the site and how green eco-friendly is your home.  So you are clear on your investment and peaceful home you live.
