Novum Ricaurte is a new 371-unit apartment complex in Bogotá. The complex is ideally located with access to the main roads of the city and the Ricaurte Transmilenio stations. Residents will also enjoy the nearby shopping centers.
The apartment complex’s two-bedroom units were designed to conserve natural resources, allowing residents to save on utility bills and live more environmentally friendly lifestyles. LED lighting, lighting controls, and low-flow plumbing fixtures will be used to reduce the towers’ energy and water use.
The developer of the project, Constructora Bolívar, has led the Colombian market in the development of urban housing projects for all income levels for more than 30 years. The company is committed to sustainable construction that not only conserves natural resources, but also generates value for its clients. Constructora Bolívar has also certified 127 Living, 176 Park, Arboleda del Campestre-Laurel, Nordika, Prado Park, Park Living, Senderos de Reserva de Curinca, and Lunaria.
Novum Ricaurte has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, 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 and roof, in-situ reinforced internal and external walls, and honeycomb clay blocks 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.
