100% of wastewater is treated to tertiary standards and reused within the building, 94% of regularly occupied areas have exterior views, 79% of regularly occupied areas have access to daylight, 51% of construction waste was diverted to be reused or recycled, 42% of building materials were extracted and manufactured within 800 km of the site, 32% reduction in portable water use, 30% additional outdoor air over minimum ventilation rates established by ASHRAE, 20% savings in energy consumption costs.
The concrete facades and high-performance glazing act as a barrier that reduces the building’s heat gain, which contributes to over 20% in energy cost savings. Also, all refrigerants used in the project are free from chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s), which avoids potential ozone layer harm.
Wellness and quality of life for the building’s occupants was one of the main objectives for Torre Reforma’s design team. The building systems provide an additional 30% of outdoor air supply that that required by ASHRAE’s 62.1 2004 minimum ventilation rates, which will improve employee productivity in office spaces.
The column free structure allows 94% of all regularly occupied spaces to have exterior views, including views to Bosque de Chapultepec, generating a connection between the occupant and his surrounding spaces.
Torre Reforma treats 100% of its wastewater and reuses it within the building, so there are no discharges into the city’s sewage system, thus reducing additional stress over Mexico City’s water supply and wastewater infrastructure.
87% of Wood products used in the project is FSC certified, which endorses wood extracted from forests handled responsibly which provides environmental, social, and economic benefits. 51% of waste generated during construction was diverted from landfills, and were reused or recycled.
