Puerto Guitarra

Puerto Guitarra

Puerto Guitarra is a complex of 12-storey apartment buildings located in Soledad, Colombia. The project is being developed by Constructora Bolivar, a local real estate developer and features a total of 720 2- and 3-bedroom apartments.

The project was able to reduce energy and water consumption as well as energy embodied in materials by employing state-of-the-art construction materials and technologies such as reflective paint of roof and external walls, external shading devices, energy-saving lighting, and low-flow showerheads and faucets.

Puerto Guitarra has received a Preliminary EDGE Certificate from CAMACOL.
