The EDGE-certified Solarium del Cañon apartment building is located within Condominio Solarium, an ambitious housing development plan that will ultimately include a total of six towers. Each tower contains a total of 160 apartments with independent amenities for residents in each building. The towers are connected by Solarium Boulevard, a large open space where residents can enjoy the outdoors. Residents also have access to the Solarium Club, which has recreational areas, a pool, retail store and more, as well as Solarium Eco, which has walking paths, gardens and space to connect with nature. The apartments are strategically positioned to take advantage of natural daylight, while green features like external shading devices keep the units cool during the day.
Developed by Construcciones y Urbanizaciones (C&U), Condominio Solarium is ideally located in the center of Ibagué, a city known for its live music and nature. For more than 35 years, C&U has designed and developed housing projects in the Ibagué area. The company is committed to building green homes that minimize their harm to the environment and contribute to the community’s quality of life. Condominio Solarium has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
External shading devices and energy-saving lighting.
Low-flow showerheads and faucets and water-efficient single flush water closets.
In-situ trough concrete floor slabs and roof construction, honeycomb clay blocks with internal and external plaster for external walls and 3D wire panel with shot-crete on both sides for internal and 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.
