On 6 March the Nelum Pokuna Main Theatre opened its doors to over 600 guests and invitees who witnessed the next phase of homes and home building in Sri Lanka. The launch of this novel concept was organised by MVIVO Ltd., an organisation whose roots are firmly set in Europe, who now bring its expertise, innovation, and knowledge to the shores of Sri Lanka.
Speaking during the launch, MVIVO CEO Kjell Van Doren stated: “Our belief at MVIVO is that homes need to change with the times, they need to evolve. That is the focus of our company, innovative housing solutions, which we are launching for the first time in Sri Lanka. These new homes that we build take into account modern-day lifestyles. People want convenience, quality and most of all speed when building a home. And even once your home is built, the core of each house is built with the flexibility for future adjustments. Therefore when your lifestyles change over the years your home will too. A home that caters and evolves to your lifestyle needs.”
The launch gave the audience a clear perspective of the capabilities of the organization; for one, MVIVO abides by all Eurocodes and quality standards set by the European Union with regard to construction and construction materials, ensuring that every home built, is to the highest standards.
Another key point that got the attention of the audience was the time factor required to build a home, which is currently seven months however MVIVO plans to reduce the time further, to four months. As new as these homes are to Sri Lanka, they keep to two of the essential requirements of any home, aesthetics, and comfort. Each home is energy efficient and ensures the comfort of every individual in the home.
A highlight of the launch was the introduction of an innovation that only MVIVO can offer, which sets them apart from all other companies in the arena of home building; this innovation is the configurator, also known as the Design Studio.
The configurator or Design Studio is an interface unique to MVIVO, which has several benefits. First, it breaks with the norm of visiting one architect at a time by allowing customers to have access to a limitless choice of architect designed or drawn houses, which customers can then modify to suit their needs.
Second, as the Design Studio is an online application, customers can enjoy flexible hours, as they browse, choose, modify and design their home at a time that is convenient for them. And once the home design is picked and finalised, the cost is fixed, which allows the customer to have a clear indication of the budget. The result of these benefits is an elegant and modern home, built in a collaboration that fulfills the customer’s need and elevates their everyday living standards.
At the launch, guests were informed that a new website detailing the capabilities and advantages of MVIVO would be online, for their convenience, at the end of the month. Further, the invitees were also informed of the MVIVO Design Center that would allow for the complete experience of these new homes, to be launched by 28 March.
The Design Center, which is fully built by utilising the MVIVO systems will be located at 253, Galle Road, Colombo 4. To visit the Design Center an appointment can be made by logging onto mvivo.com.
In addition to introducing homes of the future to Sri Lanka, MVIVO is giving back to the community. Its CSR project named Shapes Foundation will allocate 1% of its revenue to provide homes for those in need. MVIVO is planning to build between 12-16 houses through this initiative.
At the conclusion of the launch, two factors were apparent; the first was that MVIVO is building homes for individuals seeking elegant, modern houses that stand apart from the rest and are in-tune with global trends. The second that with many advantages to offer, MVIVO is poised to change and innovate the face of Sri Lanka’s home construction industry and fast track it to the future.
