Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reflective paint/tiles for the roof and external walls, external shading devices, and energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces.
Efficient-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor and roof construction, in-situ reinforced internal and external walls, and UPVC 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.
