Sustainable design with climate as an ally
Bioclimatic design refers to the construction of buildings and spaces (indoor and outdoor) using renewable energy sources and the natural weather conditions of the area.
In order to save heating costs in winter, energy design aims to minimize thermal losses from conduction, ventilation and evaporation and increase the heat gain from solar radiation.
Similarly, in summer, bioclimatic design helps to minimize the thermal input and optimize the natural cooling methods in order to minimize the mechanical cooling provided.
Energy economy thanks to sustainable construction
Compared to conventional buildings, “green” constructions are not inferior in terms of technology, safety, decoration, comfort and luxury. On the contrary, bioclimatic buildings incorporate the latest technology, offering their owners a substantial reduction in energy consumption with significant benefits in terms of economy and healthy living.
Particularly user-friendly, energy-efficient buildings have enhanced thermal insulation and damp-proofing, achieving economies of scale thanks to their energy and water control and management systems.
Sustainable investment gives good value
For every entrepreneur, the primary goal is the return on investment. This is the aim of bioclimatic design, which contributes to increasing the commercial value of the property through sustainable construction or renovation.
Sustainable investment aligns investment decisions with the social and environmental values of the investor.
Moreover, with benefits for the environment and society, a commitment to green growth differentiates a company from its competitors: it gives it prestige and responsibility as required by the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility.
What we achieve with sustainable construction
- The reduction of energy consumption is achieved by choosing environmentally friendly materials that are recyclable. They provide highly enhanced thermal and moisture insulation, making them more efficient than conventional insulation.
- The reduction of energy consumption is achieved by exploiting the positive climatic factors (solar radiation in winter) and by avoiding harmful climatic effects (cold winds in winter, solar radiation in summer), with the energy shielding of the building with materials selected on the basis of their behavior in the existing climatic conditions of the region.
Energy saving - Energy Benefit
- Energy saving is achieved by installing solar panels for heating hot water, as well as providing electricity for lighting.
- Low-energy luminaries are installed in the building or outdoors.
- Ceiling fans are installed to cool the rooms in order to reduce the time of use of the air conditioners.
Energy management - Energy saving
Energy savings are achieved through the installation of a Building Energy Management System (BEMS), which controls the operation of the heating and cooling systems, saving energy by 20-50% with additional benefits:
- Confirmation and rational allocation of energy tariffs and setting future budgets.
- Accurate measurement of energy benefits from existing energy saving measures.
- Identification of new energy saving opportunities and achievable energy targets.
- Ensuring the rational operation and maintenance of buildings.
- Raising awareness among building users through the communication of energy reports related to their behavior.
Water Saving - Management Systems
- Installation of water flow limiters in sanitary and eating areas.
- Avoidance of wasting valuable drinking water by recirculating hot water at a preset temperature in order to avoid the initial flow of cold water to remote locations – receptions. Existence of permanently hot water at the tap.
- Selection of a drip irrigation system that minimizes water wastage.
- Rainwater collection, treatment, storage and recycling systems GRM 1.0 and U 1.1, for domestic use and irrigation, with immediate and real savings of 50% in drinking water consumption.
- Drinking water production system from rainwater, with the help of which up to 100% of domestic needs can be met.
- Installation of GWO and GWI (Patented BIO Technology) grey water recycling systems in apartment buildings and residences, so that the treated water from bathtubs, sinks and/or washing machines can be used in toilets, for garden irrigation and other uses.
By investing in sustainable architecture, we aim to improve the property and increase its commercial value. Sustainable investment in existing or new properties seeks to align investment decisions with the social and environmental values of the investor, while generating long-term returns.
What it aims to
Sustainable investment aims to enhance the value of the property so that the return is as good as possible for the owner or investor, always respecting the environment.
- The adoption of actions based on “green practices” differentiates a company from its competitors, giving it comparative advantages that attract customers thanks to its environmental credentials in the market.
- Companies and organizations are raising their profile by integrating social and environmental concerns into their business activities, as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) now demands.
