Conjunto Residencial K-108 Roble is an apartment complex located in the Hacienda el Verdal urban development zone south of Santiago de Cali, Colombia. The project consists of 320 housing units with an average space of 68 square meters, distributed among eight 10-story towers with four apartments per floor. The K-108 Roble Project has been designed, promoted and built by Jaramillo Mora Constructora S.A., a Colombian real estate development company committed to sustainable construction and climate change mitigation.
With this focus in mind, energy and water-saving technologies were incorporated into the design, construction and internal processes of the building. External shading devices, reflective paint and high thermal efficiency glass, natural ventilation and LED lighting reduce the building’s energy consumption, while water-efficient plumbing fixtures reduce its water use.
K-108 Roble 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 for external walls, external shading devices, low-e coated glass, natural ventilation with operable windows and no A/C, and energy-saving light bulbs for internal and external spaces.
Low-Flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen and washbasins and single flush for water closets.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for floors and roof, in-situ and reinforced walls for internal and external walls, and plasterboards on metal studs for internal 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.
