Innovation and a concern for the environment are guideposts which help the Active Group of Companies envision and execute its projects. The Active Group of Companies sees to it that property owners enjoy a quality of life that goes beyond shelter. That’s why every project respects the natural surroundings, without leveling hills, uprooting trees or impeding the direction and flow of waterways. Thus, clients are assured of clean, healthy and safe communities, along with peace of mind and protection of their investments.
The Active Group of Companies, through the initiative of its founders, introduced trendsetting innovations now copied widely in the Philippine real estate industry.
Like the concept of a short-term “maintenance support fund” to augment the maintenance expenses of a completed Active development. A brainchild of Architect Antonio A. Turalba Sr., the Trust Fund was first applied in The Arcadia, a luxury residential development in the prime Ortigas commercial area. As envisioned, this “maintenance support fund” would come from the income of an amount set aside by the Group to initially assist homeowner or club members by minimizing association or club dues, as well as helping pay for the costs of security services, street lighting, garbage collection and the maintenance of common areas in an Active Group of Companies development.
Another is the concept of “Park In Every Block”. These open spaces are a creative and modern expression of the old Filipino tradition of tambayan – by providing homeowners a venue for socializing and convenient playgrounds for children. Also, these environmentally-correct “patches of green” provide renewable sources of cool shade and clean air for the subdivision residents.
