Located in La Libertad, San Salvador, Innovalab incorporates the company’s recycling and circular economy efforts into its project, starting with choice to reuse an old building to create an innovative space that allows the development of new technology proposals.
Within the building’s urban footprint, you have quick accessibility to different services at walking distances, including public transport. In addition, paints that have EPDs were selected to achieve environmental quality and low VOCs in the spaces.
Innovalab has been granted Final EDGE Advanced Certification from Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint for roof and external walls, VRV cooling system, low energy lighting and occupancy sensors.
Water efficient showers, water closets and faucets in all bathrooms.
Reuse of existing roof, floor, and external walls, internal walls with metal studs, and reuse of existing flooring in many places.
*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.
