BMB 002 Praia Grande – Obramax
Developed by the Adeo Group, BMB 002 Praia Grande – Obramax is a building material retail store located in São Paulo. Committed to delivering the best practical experience, the Adeo Group aims to save their customers time, energy and money in their efforts to construct, install, retrofit and maintain their own buildings.
With the sustainability of the future in mind, the new retail project uses environmental design concepts such as natural lighting on the roof and a highly reflective building envelope. The commissioning of building systems throughout all stages of the project delivers excellent energy performance. Concerned with the issue of protecting water supplies, the Adeo Group has chosen a rainwater harvesting system that collects 100% of the water needed for toilets and garden irrigation.
Founded in 1923, the Adeo Group has become the third largest building materials retailer in the world, with more than 700 stores and a turnover of more than 17 billion euros per year. BMB 001 Cambuci – Obramax has also been EDGE certified.
BMB 002 Praia Grande – Obramax has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint/tiles for roof, insulation of roof and external walls, variable refrigerant flow (VRF) cooling system with a high co-efficient of performance, energy-saving lighting systems for the sales area, corridors and common areas, and external spaces.
Dual flush for water closets, water-efficient urinals, aerators and auto shut-off faucets in all bathrooms and a rainwater harvesting system.
Steel (zinc or galvanized iron) sheets on steel rafters for roof construction, medium weight hollow concrete blocks for internal walls, medium weight hollow concrete blocks and aluminum-clad sandwich panel for external walls, and finished concrete flooring.
*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.
