Megaworld to
future-proof developments

MANILA - Property giant Megaworld is embarking on a company-wide program to “future-proof” its developments around the country, through the creation of “iTownships”, its press release said.

The company is elevating the standards of its developments by incorporating digital technology, design innovations, and connectivity into its townships.

“We have assigned teams to study how we can seamlessly integrate smart technology and innovations into our townships. In this fast-changing digital world, we see the importance of aligning our developments to quickly adapt to the disruptions, which we perceive as opportunities,” Kevin Tan, Megaworld senior vice president, said in the press release.

Among the projects to be implemented under the program include the digitization of customer service and payment processes, integration of smart home technology in residential units, utilization of digital technology and energy-efficient materials in structural designs, creation of Township Operation Centers across all developments which maximizes 24/7 security and safety monitoring and emergency response in every township, urban art installations and creative pedestrian crosswalks, and smart parking system, including provision for electric vehicle charging in mall developments, among others, the press release added.*
