Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, external shading devices, a high efficiency boiler for hot water, and energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces.
Dual-flush water closets and low-flow showerheads and faucets for kitchen sinks and washbasins.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor and roof construction, medium weight hollow concrete blocks for internal and external walls, and finished concrete and ceramic tile flooring.
*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.
