OCRE is a residential complex within the Terraverde citadel, located in La Estrella. The complex consists of three towers with a total of 393 two and three-bedroom units. Residents will enjoy living within the citadel, which consists of two housing projects and a commercial mall with shopping and dining options.
OCRE was designed to achieve resource efficiency, resulting in an impressive reduction in energy and water consumption through LED lighting, external shading devices, and low-flow plumbing fixtures. The energy and water savings will help residents save on their utility bills and live more environmentally friendly lifestyles.
OCRE is a project conceived, designed and built by Arconsa SA, a company committed to incorporating innovative design and technologies into their construction to conserve natural resources. A leader in the green building sector, Arconsa SA intends to continue certifying its projects, helping to transform construction in the region.
OCRE has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, external shading devices, energy-saving lighting for internal and external spaces, and lighting controls for corridors and staircases.
Efficient-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor and roof, honeycomb clay blocks with plaster for internal and external walls, and in-situ reinforced 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.
