Real Segovia brings 396 private residences to the housing market in Huejotzingo, Puebla City. Residents of the controlled-access community enjoy numerous amenities, including a swimming pool, bicycle path, playground and sports field.
Homeowners benefit from lower utility bills as the building has been designed to reduce energy and water usage through energy-saving indoor lighting, roof insulation, low-flow plumbing fixtures and more.
The developer of the project, Inmobiliaria Vinte, is dedicated to improving their tenants’ 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 portfolio with EDGE. Vinte’s other properties, Real Granada, Real Vizcaya, and Real Madeira, have also received final EDGE certification.
Real Segovia 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.
Concrete filler slab with polystrene blocks for the floor and roof 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.
