The 14-story Nordika apartments include 112 three-bedroom units. Located just north of Cali, residents have easy access to public transportation and surrounding amenities, which include retail stores, supermarkets, schools and more. The apartment complex also has ample outdoor space to enjoy the natural environment. Each unit has resource-efficient features that allow residents to lower their carbon footprint and reduce their utility bills. By saving on energy and water, residents are expected to reduce the costs of their utility bills by nearly one third.
Nordika represents Constructora Bolívar’s commitment to build sustainably and care for the environment. The firm believes that building green and using minimal natural resources generates a greater value to their customers and contributes to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. They hope that by choosing to certify their project with EDGE, other developers in Colombia will be encouraged to build green and reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry. Constructora Bolívar plans to continue to build green to contribute to a more sustainable future for Colombia. Constructora Bolívar has also certified 127 Living, 176 Park, Arboleda del Campestre-Laurel, Park Living, and Prado Park.
Nordika has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.

Controlled use of concrete for internal and external walls and UPVC window frames.
*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.
