Housing de Miradores
Located south of Córdoba in the Manantiales neighborhood, Housing de Miradores offers residents a peaceful escape from the busy city. Translated as “Housing of Viewpoints,” Housing de Miradores lives up to its name. The residential complex overlooks La Cañada Park and is surrounded by lush green landscape. Of the 144 homes in the neighborhood, two have been EDGE-certified.
The developer of Housing de Miradores, Grupo Edisur, has included solar hot water collectors and insulated roofing and walls for the EDGE-certified homes, which are projected to save 62% of the energy that a conventional home would require. Housing de Miradores is located within the Manantiales neighborhood, a mixed-use development that provides shops, sports centers, recreational areas, a clinic and a chapel. Manantiales is part of Grupo Edisur’s vision to provide urban development where its customers can find everything they need at their doorstep.
Housing de Miradores has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint/tiles for roof, insulation of roof and external walls, energy-saving lighting in internal and outdoor areas and solar hot water collectors.
Low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucets and dual-flush water closets.
Hollow core precast slab for floors and roof construction and precast concrete sandwich panel 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.
