Dual-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals, low-flow faucets, and a rainwater harvesting system.
In-situ reinforced concrete slab for the floor and roof construction, plasterboards on metal studs for internal walls, and aluminum profile cladding for 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.
