Adana is a luxury residential building, located in an exclusive area of Zapopan, Jalisco. Residents of the building’s 70 units will enjoy views of the adjacent golf course and the building’s terraces, infinity pool, gym, yoga room and green areas.
The 19-story building was designed to conserve natural resources. Energy-saving lighting, a variable refrigerant volume cooling system and solar photovoltaics will be installed to reduce the building’s energy use, while low-flow plumbing fixtures and dual-flush water closets will reduce the building’s water use.
The developer of the project, Inmobiliaria Castilla, is committed to the sustainable development of residential infrastructure. By incorporating resource-efficient technology into Adana, Inmobiliaria Castilla will provide its customers with homes that help them save on utilities and live more environmentally-friendly lifestyles.
Adana has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Solar photovoltaics, a variable refrigerant volume (VRV) cooling system, energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces and lighting controls for corridors and staircases.
Dual-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
Concrete filler slab with polystyrene blocks for floor slabs, in-situ reinforced and cored bricks with internal and external plaster for external walls and cored bricks with plaster on both sides for internal 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.
