Colinas de El Mameyal is located west of the city of Santiago de Cali. Its location allows for easy pedestrian and vehicular access, and is close to complimentary services such as schools, supermarkets, recreational areas and sites of cultural interest. The building contains 213 apartments distributed amongst three towers of 17 and 18 floors with protected stairs and independent shuts for organic and recyclable waste.
The project has been designed, promoted and built by Jaramillo Mora Constructora S.A., a Colombian company committed to sustainable construction and climate change mitigation.
The Colinas de El Mameyal has been granted a Preliminary EDGE Certificate by CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint for roof and external walls, VRV cooling system, low energy lighting and occupancy sensors
Water efficient showers, water closets and faucets in all bathrooms
Reuse of existing roof, floor, and external walls, internal walls with metal studs, and reuse of existing flooring in many places
*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.
