Real Amalfi brings 328 private residences to the housing market in Playa del Carmen. The housing complex is ideally located only five kilometers from the beach and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Residents of the controlled-access community enjoy numerous amenities, including a central park, clubhouse with a pool, outdoor entertainment space and a gym.
Energy-saving indoor lighting and roof insulation reduce the homes’ energy use, while dual-flush water closets and low-flow plumbing fixtures reduce the homes’ water use. The energy and water savings allow homeowners to save on utilities and live more environmentally-friendly lifestyles.
The developer of this project, Inmobiliaria Vinte, is dedicated to improving their tenant’s quality of life by building more efficient housing with positive economic and environmental impacts. An EDGE champion, Inmobiliaria Vinte has committed to certifying its immediate future projects with EDGE. Vinte’s other properties Real Granada, Real Vizcaya, Real Segovia and Real Madeira, have also received final EDGE certification.
Real Amalfi has received final EDGE certification from GBCI.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, insulation of the roof and energy-saving lighting in internal spaces.
Water-efficient single-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor slab, concrete filler slab with polystyrene blocks for the roof and in-situ reinforced 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.
