Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint/tiles for roof, external shading devices, and energy-saving lighting external spaces.
Low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins, and dual flush for water closets.
Concrete filler slab for floor and roof construction, in-situ reinforced concrete slab for roof, medium weight hollow concrete blocks for internal and external walls, in-situ reinforced wall for internal and external walls, and aluminum window frames.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
