LEED® CERTIFICACION

CONVENTO CITY PARK

We want to share with you the great LEED Certification achievement of Convento CityPark!

This was achieved thanks to the implementation of sustainability strategies during the design and construction process, which seek to minimize the negative impact on the environment, improve the efficiency of the building and ensure a quality environment for all users.

LEED-iconos1

LEED is a tool created by the United States Green Building Council or USGBC®. LEED is an internationally recognized benchmark that evaluates the efforts made by project teams. It takes into account the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings and provides building owners and operators with the tools they need to make an immediate and measurable impact on the performance of their buildings.

LEED promotes a comprehensive approach to sustainability through recognition of performance in 7 key areas:

  • Sustainable sites
  • Water efficiency
  • Energy efficiency
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environment Quality
  • Innovation
  • Regional Priority

Building B4

It achieved LEED Gold Level certification with 65 points.

Building B5

It achieved LEED Gold Level certification with 65 points.

The CityPark B4 and B5 convent buildings implemented the following strategies to achieve LEED certification:

  • Emissions due to user mobility are reduced by locating warehouses near public transportation, installing showers, racks for bicycle users, and assigning preferential places for efficient cars.
  • Water consumption was minimized by installing efficient bathroom furniture, selecting native plants for the garden, as well as installing an irrigation treatment plant.
  • The efficiency of the building was improved taking into account the external conditions of the site, constructing an efficient building envelope, as well as the installation of sensors and efficient equipment, in addition, a verification or commissioning process was carried out that ensures high-quality installations and performance. An improvement in energy efficiency of more than 50% was achieved compared to other buildings.
  • Adequate ventilation was designed to take care of air quality, in addition, low-emission materials were selected and smoking is prohibited 8 meters from the accesses for this same purpose.

Building B6

LEED certification in process.

Building B7

LEED certification in process.

The CityPark B6 and B7 convent buildings implemented the following strategies to achieve LEED certification:

  • By choosing the location of the project in an industrial area, sensitive areas with uses for livestock, cultivation or habitat of endangered species were protected. In addition to contributing to the economic development of the area.

  • Sustainability plans were implemented during construction to minimize the impact of the work. Erosion and sedimentation were protected, waste was separated and more than 50% of it was recycled, and air quality was also taken care of.

  • Water consumption was minimized by installing efficient bathroom furniture, selecting native plants for the garden, as well as installing an irrigation treatment plant. This saves more than 30% of water.

  • The efficiency of the building was improved taking into account the external conditions of the site, constructing an efficient building envelope, as well as the installation of sensors and efficient equipment, in addition, a verification or commissioning process was carried out that ensures high-quality installations and performance. An improvement in energy efficiency of more than 20% was achieved compared to other buildings.
