Low-flow showerheads, faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins, single flush for water closets and rainwater harvesting system.
Exposed brick wall with internal plaster and plasterboards on metal studs for internal walls, concrete filler slab with polystyrene blocks and honeycomb clay blocks with internal & external plaster for external walls, floor slabs and concrete filler slab with polystyrene blocks for roof and plasterboards on metal studs with insulation.
*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.
