“CUARTE VERDE” First building almost zero consumption rated environmentally green in Aragon

Development of promotion of 46 homes Cuarte Verde as a concept in which environmental, construction and urban aspects are integrated with a single purpose: to build sustainable homes with significant savings in energy consumption, contributing to combat climate change and obtain great thermal, acoustic and air quality comfort inside the houses.

These homes not only have the highest possible energy rating (A) but, taking a step further, it is intended to achieve the status of Almost Nula Energy Building (EECN). In addition, it will be certified with the GBCe Green Quality Seal (Green Building Council Spain) that guarantees the good energy performance of the house.

The primary objective of this promotion is to build a building with better performance and lower environmental impact, improve the quality of life of its occupants and meet the environmental, economic and social challenges of our society.

The primary objective of this promotion is to build a building with better performance and lower environmental impact, improve the quality of life of its occupants and meet the environmental, economic and social challenges of our society.

The essential aspects for obtaining this type of certification are:

  • Plot placement criteria and equipment.
  • Data on energy consumption and emissions into the atmosphere.
  • Natural resources.
  • Quality of the interior environment in the houses.
  • Social and economic aspects.
  • Quality of service.
  • Innovation in elements, equipment and technology used.

It has the first building in Aragon that is in process for obtaining the certificate and Seal of Green Quality GBCe (Green Building Council Spain)

Sustainable building is one of the most important social, economic and cultural transformations of our time because, in addition to an environmental obligation, it is a form of progress that restores to the building its commitment to people and their environment .

Sustainability implies and relates to LIFE both socially and economically and individually.

Our vision is that a sustainable building meets the five Ps: people, as quality of life and well-being; prosperity, as local and fair economic development; planet, as protection of our environment; peace, as harmony and harmony and covenant, as implication and commitment of all for all.

Achieving this goal leads us to assess where the building is located, the indoor environmental quality (air, light, noise, comfort), resource management (energy, water, materials), social integration (accessibility, training, communication) or quality building technique (monitoring, documentation, maintenance).

To do this we try to ensure that the objectives proposed are met based on measurements that guarantee results, we do not want to score specific actions that, depending on each building, will have different consequences and we rely on the Life Cycle Analysis because a sustainable building must be, from when the materials with which it is built are produced, until it is demolished and given a second life.
