Real Bilbao is a 414-unit subdivision in Playa del Carmen. The community’s two and three-bedroom apartments are ideally located within five kilometers of the beach and are surrounded by restaurants and shopping centers.
Residents benefit from lower utility bills as all units reduce energy and water usage through energy-saving indoor lighting, roof insulation, dual-flush water closets, low-flow plumbing fixtures and more.
The developer of this project, Inmobiliaria Vinte, is dedicated to improving their tenant’s quality of life by building more efficient housing with positive economic and environmental impacts. An EDGE champion, Inmobiliaria Vinte has committed to certifying its immediate future projects with EDGE. Vinte’s other properties Real Granada, Real Vizcaya, Real Segovia and Real Madeira, have also received final EDGE certification.
Real Bilbao has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, insulation of the roof and energy-saving lighting in internal spaces.
Water-efficient single-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
Concrete filler slab with polystyrene blocks for the floor slab and roof and medium weight hollow concrete 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.
