construction awards competition
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 at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute. State Minister of
Housing Facilities Indika Anuruddha 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.
Fairway Galle consists of two 15-storey residential towers that capture the vibe of one of Sri Lanka’s favourite coastal-holiday destinations. The complex provides residents with a holiday home and lifestyle amenities such as swimming pools, indoor and outdoor gymnasiums, clubhouses, tennis courts, squash courts, jogging tracks, activity rooms, kids play areas, and vast landscaped gardens. Celebrated for its outstanding quality and design, Fairway Galle was also recognised at the Asia Pacific Property Awards.
Orwell Residencies is a 26-storey luxury residential complex that overlooks the Colombo skyline and majestic Indian Ocean. Located in a busy central location of Colombo 3, Orewll Residencies is the epitome of a modern apartment complex in a busy city: taking maximum use of its footprint to create a building that is spacious, sleek, and extremely functional.
Sri Lanka Karting Circuit at Bandaragama is the brainchild of visionary motorsport enthusiast, David Pieris, and lauded as the finest karting track in Asia. MAGA undertook extensions and improvements to the Karting Circuit, bringing it up to international standards that would allow Sri Lanka to host events such as the IAME X30 Asia Cup.
