Condominio Batara is a new residential complex that is part of the Palmanova development in Villeta, Cundinamarca. The condominium consists of 188 units, divided into two types of homes with either two or three bedrooms. Residents will enjoy the complex’s amenities, including swimming pools for children and adults, a jacuzzi, a water play area for children, a community room, fitness center, a playground, and a BBQ area.
The residents will also benefit from lower utility bills as all units reduce energy and water usage through the use of energy-saving lighting, reflective paint, and low-flow plumbing fixtures.
Condominio Batara is being developed by Ambientii Constructora Inmobiliaria S.A., a company committed to implementing resource efficiency strategies into its residential projects. The condominium and the entire Palmanova development are receiving financing from EDGE Champion Paladin Realty, a leader in sustainable development.
Condominio Batara has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, reflective paint/tiles for the roof and external walls, external shading devices, energy-saving lighting for internal and external spaces, and lighting controls for corridors and staircases.
Efficient-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor, micro concrete tiles on steel rafters for the roof, honeycomb clay blocks with plaster for internal and external walls, and exposed cored bricks with internal plaster for external walls.
*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.
