We are thrilled to announce the launch of Panglao Shores, an incredible 50-hectare resort masterplan on the island of Bohol, Philippines!
The mixed-use development by leading Philippine conglomerate, Alturas Group, marks sustainability, community and local culture as its guiding principles. It will be infused with the nature of Bohol, integrating six hotels and resorts, 37,000sqm of retail and commercial space, over 1,000 residential units and an international medical facility, while seamlessly weaving sustainability and social responsibility into the fabric of the project and the wider destination.
International eco-building standards and materials have been incorporated throughout, such as high-performance glass, natural ventilation and solar harvesting, along with smart technologies, electric transport, water treatment, waste reduction, and the removal of all single-use plastics. Local vendors are supported to sell crafts, native farmers and fishing communities have been built into the supply chain, children’s education is supported and coral reefs are protected.
XCO2 are the MEP and Sustainability Consultants on this masterplan development, collaborating with C9 Hotelworks and SCSY Studio.
