Maga Engineering continued its winning streak at the National Awards for Construction, winning five accolades in 2019 that recognised the Company’s commitment to quality, reliability, timely delivery, and sustainable building practices. The award ceremony organised by the Construction Industry Development Authority (CIDA) was held on 25 February 2020 at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute. Hon. Indika Anuruddha, State Minister of Housing Facilities graced the occasion as chief guest.
MAGA’s industry-leading Clearpoint Residencies won the National Green Excellence Award, while Fairway Elements won a National Construction Excellence award. Fairway Galle and Orwell Residencies were recognised with National Construction Merit Awards, and the Sri Lanka Karting Circuit Bandaragama received a National Performance Award.
Clearpoint is the tallest vertical garden in the world, and Sri Lanka’s highest-rated green building. The property’s signature feature, its planted terraces, encircle the building creating green cover that provides natural cooling and reduced air-conditioning. Large solar panels power common areas and systems, whilst rainwater is harvested and used with recycled grey water for flushing and drip-irrigation for gardening. The building’s coordinated waste management provides revenue toward building maintenance.
Fairway Elements is a 40-storey modern residential complex built with best-in-class industry practices. Living areas are designed to blend seamlessly with spacious outdoor terraces that maximise space, light, and views of surrounding wetlands. The property also includes rainwater harvesting facilities, and double-glazed uPVC windows coupled with energy-efficient lighting to reduce maintenance costs.
