The Planta Nutrabiotics project consists of the construction of an office building (4 levels) and a warehouse for the operations of Nutrabiotics, a Colombian food supplements company, located in the free trade zone of Tocancipá, Cundinamarca.
To achieve EDGE standards in resource efficiency, the project incorporated energy-saving technologies such as LED lighting with occupancy sensors, solar photovoltaics as well as water-efficient plumbing features and state-of-the-art construction materials into the buildings’s design and construction.
Planta Nutrabiotics has received a Preliminary EDGE Certificate from CAMACOL for their offices, and a Preliminary EDGE Advanced Certificate for their warehouse.
