Indoor air quality means healthful living

DO YOU know that indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air? Research shows that indoor air quality can be as much as nine times more polluted than outdoor air. Imagine that when you’re living in a condo building that’s been designed without careful consideration for the quality of its indoor air.
If the condo building you live in lacks an efficient air ventilation system, its indoor air quality could be compromised. This can lead to a warm environment that is conducive to the growth of mold and other contaminants.
Those living in condo buildings without clear breeze pathways become prone to the sick building syndrome and will suffer from a range of symptoms, from shortness of breath, irritated or runny nose, headache, nausea, skin irritation, among others.
The sick building syndrome is mostly associated with buildings where its occupants become prone to one or a combination of these symptoms, which disappear when they leave their building.
This can happen to people who live in poorly designed condo structures that do not have good breeze pathways which allow the entry of fresh air. Worse, it can aggravate existing conditions such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, and other respiratory problems.
Unit owners of Camella Northpoint will never fall victim to the sick building syndrome. With the green architecture of this British colonial themed condo community, its occupants benefit from excellent indoor air quality.
As green buildings, Northpoint’s condo towers are designed to allow fresh air to enter and warm air to exit. The cool breeze the building design allows to enter it flows into the atrium, indoor gardens, and hallways, cooling the interior and providing fresh air to the individual condo units.
Northpoint’s condo homes also have wide windows that can be opened to let the breeze in, as well as the verdant green landscape that Northpoint is known for. Enhancing its air quality even further are the live plants found in the indoor gardens, providing fresh oxygen and a cool ambiance.
Camella Northpoint’s fourth and tallest tower, Liverpool, will have Sky Gardens that are not only filled with real, live plants, but will be wide openings in the building façade that freely allow the entry of cool wind and breeze.
It will also allow the freshness of hundreds of imported Caribbean pine trees planted all over Northpoint to waft into the building and the individual condo units.
These pine trees and other plant lives that grow abundantly in Northpoint help to cleanse the air by absorbing harmful toxins and producing life-giving oxygen. It also emits a wonderful aroma that makes the air in Northpoint pleasantly scented.
As these pine trees can grow to about a hundred feet tall, they also provide shade that will protect the buildings and its units from the heat and harsh glare of the sun. With its excellent indoor air quality, Northpoint gives its homeowners a pleasant and cool ambiance as well as a safe environment for their families.
Camella Northpoint is a landmark condo development of Camella Davao which holds office at 2/F Delgar Building, JP Laurel Ave., Bajada, Davao City, telephone numbers (082) 222-0963 and (082) 222-5221.
