100% of the occupants are satisfied with their workspace, 94% of regularly occupied spaces have access to outside views, 90% of regularly occupied spaces have access to daylight, 85% of generated waste is diverted from landfill, 65% in GHG emissions reduction from renewable energy generation in the second bimester of the year, 62% of occupants share a car, use public transport, or walk to/from the building, 53% reduction in indoor potable water use, 50% reduction in water use for green areas irrigation,
CÍVITA installed a photovoltaic power generation system with a capacity of 2.64 kW. The system is dimensioned to provide 100% of the project’s energy consumption. The implementation of this system has the purpose of eliminate GHG emissions associated with the operation and energy consumption of the project. Since it is a naturally ventilated space, no equipment requiring refrigerants is installed, which avoids potential damage to the ozone layer. CÍVITA is a naturally lit space most of the time, which considerably reduces lighting electricity consumption.
The well-being and quality of life of the building’s occupants is one of the major goals of CÍVITA. The characteristics of the building allows 100% of the regularly occupied spaces to be naturally ventilated. CÍVITA has large windows, which allows 90% of the regularly occupied spaces to have access to daylight.
CÍVITA has high-efficiency water fixtures and fittings, strategy that results in savings of 53% in indoor potable water use. On the other hand, water used for irrigation was reduced by 50%. These strategies help to preserve natural resources and reduce the pressure upon the water supply systems.
