D for Democratic
The democratic housing corporation is not just a name. It’s a promise. We are democratizing quality home ownership. Our novel concept aims to provide young families access to high standards of design and building quality at affordable prices. We believe in empowering people and providing them self-sufficient communities that thrive in harmony with the environment. We do not sell plastic glamour and fluffy dreams. We offer real products at real prices.
tdhc is the antithesis of your average real estate developer. We know your home is a source of pride and a reflection of your individuality, so we make no compromises when building your dream. We offer modern innovation with respect for heritage, respect for the environment, respect for our customers and respect for ourselves as well. Our homes are built for generations, and we stand by that promise with an insurance-backed ten years warranty.
A shift in the meaning of luxury
We know quality construction. We know superb design. We know expert contracting. We deliver on time and as promised, but we also know that quality does not mean “one size fits all”.
We are a fresh minded real estate developer with a mission to operate in a honest and transparent way, providing best value property developments to our clients. Our developments, from inception to completion, are carefully crafted from an understanding of the changing needs, tastes and expectations of our customers.
We lead design initiatives in sustainable approaches to housing, with successful carbon-efficient schemes already under construction; our approach supports an overall awareness of the long-term cost and benefits that sustainable residential projects can bring.
Good design is not only about aesthetics
While you may think good design means something looks great, in truth there is much more to design than just how it looks. On top of looking good, it needs to perform.
At tdhc our motto is ‘Design with Purpose’. We create residential developments that seek to push the creative boundaries and firmly believe that external and internal environments should work harmoniously to achieve enduring, appropriate and ultimately successful solutions that strive to improve the quality of living spaces.
We pursue creative solutions through Thought Leadership around the design of housing and the planning of residential communities. This allows us to think as much about the people who will live in the places we design and spaces in between buildings as we do about the buildings themselves.
We’re not just green. We’re smart too.
Our passion for new technologies that make life more simple and more comfortable burns bright. We are at the dawn of the age of “the Internet of Things,” meaning your household appliances are connected to each other and to you, 24 hours a day.
Worried you forgot the coffee maker on when you left for work? With a connected machine, you can check if it’s on in your car from your phone and turn it off while waiting in traffic. Hands too full with groceries to fumble for your front door key? Smart doors open when you approach.
We integrate smart home systems into all of our developments, meaning your house won’t miss out on the digital revolution.
Respect for the environment is at the very core of who we are as a company. Lebanon’s natural beauty is perhaps its greatest asset, and we believe preservation is a national responsibility. We design our projects to conform to their surroundings, not destroy them. As the law requires, we conduct environmental impact assessments before breaking ground on any project, but we go further. We do hydrological studies to make sure a development outside of one village does not cause flooding or soil erosion in the next. We identify the various species of plants and animals on a plot of land before we start building to limit our impact and ensure our developments are non-invasive. We go above and beyond the legal requirements because for us “building green” is not an empty slogan or marketing gimmick. We care. And we put in the time and effort to prove it.
tdhc builds more than homes, we build communities. Quality of life does not end at your front door. Modern amenities and space for social interaction are incorporated into each of our developments – from a tower in the city to a forested suburban neighborhood. We make sure everything you need is within reach.
We take urban planning seriously, and our projects are well integrated into their surrounding environments.
Our focus is harmony, not disruption motivated by excessive profit. When designing our first community – Bouyout Daraoun – the amount of built up area fell 15 percent below what our building permit allowed for because we wanted to maximize green space in the neighborhood. This is how we operate. Your comfort is our top concern.
The answer to your questions
At tdhc, we believe moving in to a new home should not be a time of stress and confusion. We believe the transition should be as smooth as possible. We’ve done everything possible to make living in your new home an enjoyable experience from the very first day you move in. You won’t be disappointed.
Your homeowner’s manual
Every tdhc home comes with an Owner’s Manual covering everything you need to know. It includes as-built drawings of your home with full structural information. It also provides behind-the-wall maps of infrastructure like pipes and wiring. The manual gives how-to guides for home maintenance and use of any installed appliances, systems and processes. Finally, it is also your go-to resource for the community’s rules and regulations.
An extra layer of security
All tdhc homes come with a quality assurance certificate and an insurance-backed warranty. For the first year we are responsible for putting right any issues caused by a failure to build to the warranty standards. Thereafter, our warranty policy includes two years of systems coverage, and ten years of structural defect coverage.
Top quality facilities management
tdhc Living is a facilities manager, but so much more. As its name suggests, it is part of tdhc and shares our mission and values. We’re not subcontracting the maintenance of your community to someone we’re not sure we can trust. A clean and properly functioning development is only half of what we’re after. We want to preserve and increase the value of your home. tdhc Living is also responsible for security in the development, so you can be sure you and your family are well protected and in good hands.
Value added services a phone call away
tdhc Living is also your link to the services that come with your tdhc home like high-speed internet and satellite television. Instead of leaving you to figure out on your own how to access modern, in-home amenities, tdhc Living provides access to these services for you. Additionally, if something in your home is not working perfectly, you don’t have to call multiple companies and wait for repairmen who never show up. tdhc Living will even maintain your private garden if you need such assistance.
