I have been visiting various builders and realtors to buy my dream home. Most of the builders gave me their brochures, which included the home plan and the price per square foot. However, an upcoming building company gave me a CD instead of their paper brochure. The sales manager told me the CD contains the plan of their entire project as well as the price per square foot. Seeing me being surprised, he told me that they are an eco-friendly firm who believes in minimum paper consumption to increase their work efficiency, to save time and money. He showed me the CD with all the project details on his laptop. It was awesome to see the whole housing society in a multidimensional view. It also helped me visualize how my apartment would look like when completed. Thanks to the innovative technology, which makes ‘going green’ very much possible and easy.
