Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, reflective paint for external walls, external shading devices, energy-saving lighting in external spaces, and lighting controls for corridors and staircases.
Dual-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
Concrete filler slab with Polystyrene blocks for the floor and roof construction and in-situ reinforced cored bricks with plaster 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.
