Madrid Friendly is a housing project located in the San Borja district of Lima, Peru. It consists of a total of 19 apartments with an average floor space of 126 square meters.
The project was developed by Madrid Ingenieros, a local real estate development company with a focus on sustainable housing construction.
By incorporating modern construction technologies such as insulation of the roof and external walls, the use of energy-saving appliances such as LED lightbulbs and water-efficient plumbing features, the project was able to significantly reduce its energy and water consumption, resulting in a more sustainable construction project and a reduced carbon footprint.
Madrid Friendly has received Final EDGE Certification from Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, insulation of roof and external walls, energy-saving light bulbs for external spaces, and lighting controls for corridors and staircases.
Low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucets for kitchen sinks and all bathrooms, and dual-flush for water closets.
Medium-weight hollow concrete blocks for internal and external walls, facing brick and hollow concrete blocks for external walls, concrete filler slab with polystyrene blocks for floor and roof construction, in-situ reinforced concrete filler slab for roof construction, ceramic tile and laminated wood flooring, and aluminum window frames.
