Adelfas 98 is the first collective housing project in Spain which obtains the highest percentage score in BREEAM rating with a 67.99%.
Designed by RLA, this project becomes pioneer in terms or topics such as water management, the incorporated energy of materials and their origin, CO2 emissions derived from transport on the site and the building use, in addition to develop the biodiversity of the site which help to improve the existing ecological values of the area.
"The total kilometers travelled by the main materials used in the work, have been computed. With them, we have obtained the associated kg of CO2. These km are equivalent to going around the world for the Equator 2 times, “certificated advisor Miguel Diaz said. “We must work these concepts from the sketches to, as far as possible, reducing these km and, its associated emissions”
These methodologies that certify the sustainability in the construction process are making new ways of approaching the projects and its construction, to do it with standards that, in addition to energy, respond in a respectful way with the environment. We must be demanding and advance in the development of new tools, that enable us to ensure that sustainability is not only directed towards energy issues, but towards an understanding of the global system in which the human being is involved.
The themes subject to analysis have been the management of work, Health and Welfare, energy, transport, water, materials used, waste, both on site and in future use, land use and ecology and, finally, pollution.
