Strategically located just outside of Bogotá, the Bodega Mercurio logistics park is near major freeways, providing an ideal location to transport goods throughout the country. Built with international world-class standards, the Bodega Mercurio is only one of many warehouses built by Terranum that make up a new network of logistics parks across the country. As a pioneer in Colombian real estate, Terranum breaks from the traditional construction model to develop properties that are green. Since sustainability is one of the fundamental pillars of the company’s values, building green warehouses supports Terranum’s corporate social responsibility goals.
The Bodega Mercurio will provide a resource-efficient space for companies to operate with lower utility bills, allowing them to channel more funds into their operations. Tenants of the park are expected to reduce their utility costs by more than one third. The park also has green areas to enjoy the outdoors, while advanced security and technology solutions help tenants operate more efficiently. Bodega Mercurio has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Insulated roof and external walls, energy-saving lighting and a skylight that provides daylight to 50% of the top floor area.
Dual flush water closets and water-efficient urinals and faucets.
Aluminum-clad sandwich panel for roof construction, medium weight hollow concrete blocks for internal and external walls, plasterboards on metal studs for internal walls, steel-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.
