Robson Construction/CayMag 

Magnum Board Products are a purely mineral product made from magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride used as a binder with fillers including wood flour, perlite and fiber reinforcement.

Absolutely no chemicals are used in its formula whatsoever. Magnum Board products are homogenous, not poured in layers so delimitation does not occur as it does with some cement board type products.

The manufacturing process is also eco friendly. Unlike gypsum based drywalls that produce 51 million tons of green house gasses annually, Magnum Board Products are naturally dried and cured eliminating the power intensive drying process needed for gypsum products.

In fact, the gypsum manufacturing process consumes approximately 1 per cent of the US energy supply. Magnum Board products are durable and virtually impervious to fire, water and insects including termites and carpet ants. It does not feed mold or mildew and is completely non-toxic. Also Magnum Board Products are completely recyclable.

OTIS Air Conditioning 

Imagine an office application with the reception, the meeting room, the president’s office; all part of the same system yet able to have different temperatures or being shut off without affecting other areas, realising tremendous energy savings compared to traditional centralised systems. Imagine this technology in your home allowing you to cool the room you use and not the rooms you don’t. 

The versatility of the new Daikin system, brought to you by local suppliers OTIS Air Conditioning Ltd, makes it ideal for all commercial or residential projects including retail stores, small offices, restaurants, hotels, healthcare facilities schools and multifamily townhouses, condos or single family homes. 

The revolutionary technology of the Daikin system allows for precise temparature control that constantly re-adjusts itself to the environment and changing occupancy. The system employs an inverter unit which will gradually increase the compressor speed, rather than turn on and off, based on the capacity needed to cool down a room.

Daikin uses non-ozone depleting refrigerants, minimises temperature fluctuations and reduces energy consumption by one-third compared to conventional on/off units. Moreover it is easy to install and offers an excellent balance between investment and running costs.

They engage in an Integrated Pest Management approach to managing pests: incorporating the combined use of biological, cultural, mechanical and chemical methods in a way that reduces the impact on human health and the environment. They also utilise a number of organic fertilisers and pesticides (horticultural oils and beneficial insects). 

Power Flower follows a number of xeriscape principles to create landscapes that require less water, chemicals and maintenance. These include utilising native and drought tolerant species, designing efficient irrigation systems, reducing lawn areas (incorporating more gravel areas instead), grouping plants with similar water requirements together and letting grass clippings fall back into lawn when mowing. 

Power Flower also composts all of their green waste generated during maintenance operations.
