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 in 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, in-situ reinforced concrete and steel sheets on steel rafters for the roof construction, and in-situ reinforced honeycomb clay blocks with plaster for internal and 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.
