The six-floor DELFOS apartment building is located in an exclusive area of northern Quito. Residents of the homes will have easy access to the Mariscal Sucre Airport, Mall El Condado, supermarkets, pharmacies, educational institutions, banks and other businesses.
The one, two and three-bedroom modern apartments will utilize resource-efficient technologies, allowing residents to save on utilities and live a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle. Energy-saving lighting, reflective paint and a heat pump for hot water generation will reduce the building’s energy use, while low-flow showerheads and faucets will reduce the building’s water use.
The developer of this project, Bentho Constructora, is dedicated to the development of Quito City. Through the construction and sale of apartment buildings, offices and commercial premises, Bentho Constructora creates functional environments that help its clients to live happy and healthy lifestyles.
DELFOS has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reflective paint for external walls, energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces, lighting controls for corridors and staircases and a heat pump for hot water generation.
Dual-flush water closets, low-flow showerheads and low-flow faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
Composite in-situ concrete and steel deck for floors and roofs and medium weight hollow concrete blocks 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.
