With increasing global environmental awareness, PATHMOS works with leading sustainable engineers, architects, and landscape designers who are experts in site development and Estate designs that focus on sustainable aesthetic designs of residential and commercial projects within Sub Saharan Africa.
At PATHMOS, we view sustainable designs from the perspective of how the development of land parcels and the designed structures on it will affect not only the environment but also the communities around the structures upon completion. We provide our clients with the services of expert civil engineers and landscapers that specialize in sustainable development with emphasis on LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT (LID).
What is low impact development? (LID)
LID is the concept of land development for commercial or residential based on minimal impact on the original topography while maintaining the original condition of the land parcel as much as possible prior to predevelopment. It is an engineering strategy and a superior alternative to traditional storm water management, which is costly and ineffective at controlling flood and erosion effects. Currently, LID is popular in Europe and North America, and PATHMOS is the only entity developing and promoting LID models in sub Saharan Africa. Benefits of LID as an alternative to traditional development are numerous, with a few listed below:
