Design has been a key element in the development of Camana Bay as seen in the architectural structures and lush landscaping of the Town Centre. This attention to detail goes beyond the aesthetics.
Camana Bay embraces the principles advocated by The Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED).To reduce non-renewable energy consumption for cooling, buildings are oriented to capture the prevailing easterly breezes. Solar shading is provided through roof hangings, balconies and shading devices. High-performance glazing systems are also in use. Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems are energy efficient to conserve resources. Air conditioning is provided by an innovative cooling system, which uses chilled water. It’s an economic solution that negates the need for unsightly and noisy units.
Emphasis on durability
Camana Bay is committed to delivering a durable and sustainable environment. Buildings are engineered for longevity, both in design and construction. Each can withstand the specific conditions on Grand Cayman, including strong sun and high heat. Using materials that age gracefully was a primary consideration.The canals are carefully engineered to nurture aquatic and semi-aquatic life. Free-flowing water allows for maximum oxygenation. To promote optimum growth of trees, banks are raised enabling tree trenches to sit well above the brackish water level.
An underground infrastructure provides maximum functionality without affecting aesthetics. Ducts carrying fibre-optics, copper cables and water pipes provide multiple routes around the Town Centre and beyond.Camana Bay’s information technology and communications systems provide world-class performance, reliability, connectivity, and convenience. For additional security, all electrics are housed in the Control and Command Centre (CCC), a hurricane rated building.
