Multicine Paseo Villa del Rio
Royal Films, a leading movie theater chain in Colombia, has opened a new location in Bogotá. The movie theater will serve as a meeting place for family and friends throughout the community and expand access to cinema for residents of the capital.
Aligned with Royal Films’ commitment to environmental sustainability, the movie theater was designed to conserve natural resources. LED lighting, roof insulation and a variable refrigerant volume cooling system will contribute to the building’s energy savings, while dual-flush water closets and water-efficient plumbing fixtures will contribute to the building’s water savings.
Projectors that operate entirely by laser light source will also be used for the screening of movies to reduce energy use.
Multicine Paseo Villa del Rio has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from CAMACOL.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, insulation of the roof and external walls, a variable refrigerant volume (VRV) cooling system and energy-saving lighting in the sales, corridors and common areas.
Dual-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals and auto shut-off faucets, and water-efficient kitchen sinks.
Composite in-situ concrete and steel deck for the floor, steel-clad sandwich panel for the roof, plasterboards on metal studs with insulation and cored bricks with plaster on both sides for internal walls, and 3-D wire panel with “shot-crete” on both sides 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.
