Edificio Jorge Hoyos Vasquez

Edificio Jorge Hoyos Vasquez P.U.J


Edificio Jorge Hoyos Vasquez P.U.J is a new building on the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana campus in Bogotá. The building will not only serve those new to the campus but will also be open to those throughout the city.

The 10-story building was strategically designed to make use of its surrounding environment, allowing for ample natural light in the morning and natural ventilation using the winds from the nearby mountains. Resource-efficient technologies were also installed to reduce its environmental impact and lower its carbon footprint. An energy-efficient cooling system, external shading devices, occupancy sensors, and LED lighting contribute to the building’s energy savings, while water-efficient landscaping and plumbing fixtures will contribute to the building’s water savings.

Edificio Jorge Hoyos Vasquez P.U.J  is the latest addition to Pontificia Universidad Javeriana’s plan to build and renovate a series of its buildings, increasing the resource efficiency of its campus. Committed to building a sustainable campus, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana has also EDGE-certified the Gerardo Arango S.J. Building – School of Arts and the Research and Laboratories Building of the Faculty of Engineering.

Edificio Jorge Hoyos Vasquez P.U.J has received EDGE Advanced certification from CAMACOL.
