INTROVA Eco Housing
At INTROVA Eco Housing, residents can enjoy the natural environment surrounding their homes as well as access to the nearby shops, schools, hospitals and business centers. The neighborhood has a peaceful atmosphere with wide streets and open green space but is only minutes from the city of Córdoba. Each three-bedroom home has reflective paint and insulation for the walls and roof to help conserve energy, while dual flush water closets help reduce water usage. The homes save 66% of embodied energy in materials by using less concrete, cellular light weight concrete blocks for external walls and more. The interior of the homes will be built using a dry construction technique, allowing residents to customize their space once they have chosen their home. Dry construction techniques are lighter than traditional bricks, take less time to install and are more environmentally-friendly.
The developer of INTROVA Eco Housing, RODE, has over 21 years of experience delivering projects across Argentina. In addition to developing homes, the company also has experience in hydraulic projects, specialized engineering, industrial fluid treatment and more. In all their projects, RODE strives to provide the greatest quality for their customers while keeping the environment in mind. INTROVA Eco Housing has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.
