Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, external shading devices, a variable refrigerant volume (VRV) cooling system, and energy-saving lighting in internal, external, and back-of-house spaces.
Efficient-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals, low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins, aerators/auto shut-off faucets, and water-efficient dishwashers.
Parquet flooring and the re-use of existing floor slab, roof construction, window frames, and 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.
