Crystal Lagoons® technology featured by leading Pan-African Magazine9 April, 2020 / News
The prestigious Pan-African construction magazine, Construction Review Online, has covered Crystal Lagoons® technology in an article highlighting how the firm’s water amenities, when incorporated in a real estate project, create a new standard of living. The feature delves into how they adapt urban landscapes by creating stunning turquoise waters with idyllic beaches on to be enjoyed year round by residents. The following is an extract of the article about the Miami-based multinational water innovation.
Across the African continent, the development of infrastructure and new sustainable and technological urban hubs is intensive. Additionally, it is a continent with many landlocked, Mediterranean areas and some of its coasts are cold and dangerous. This demographic growth allows the firm to plan important projections for Crystal Lagoons, since the technology responds to these problems, offering quality of life to a growing population. Their large bodies of turquoise water and idyllic beaches offer the possibility of swimming and water sports in a safe environment and allow to develop projects on inland terrain, far from the coast, and generally considered of low tourist and real estate value.
The unique aspects of Crystal Lagoons amenities
Crystal Lagoons® technology, patented in 190 countries, is unique in the world and allows the development of large bodies of water in a crystalline state, at a low cost of construction and maintenance. Its sustainable technology can be used anywhere in the world, including Africa, where water is a critical resource.
In fact, these lagoons are filled only once and operate on a closed-circuit, using 30 times less water than a golf course and half that of a park of the same dimensions. They can use any type of water: fresh, sea or brackish from underground sources which would otherwise have no alternative use. Additionally, they allow to collect rainwater.
Incorporating a crystalline lagoon powered by Crystal Lagoons technology in a real estate project creates a new standard in real estate, transforming the urban landscape by creating stunning turquoise waters with idyllic beaches. They also add value to both the real estate developer and the end user. It increases the speed at which they are sale exponentially and substantially increase the value of constructions per square meter. As an example, South African developer Balwin Properties has experienced the “lagoon effect” twice, a trend that is repeated around the world.
Crystal Lagoons is an American multinational innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
