Malaga Airport to Build Green Energy Structures
Categories: Homes / Dwellings
The design of this building will be a reference in sustainable architecture for all buildings that will be located in the future city of Malaga Airport. Its sustainability has been certified by the Green Building Council Spain.
Sustainable design strategies in this building are: passive design to reduce the energy demand, use of vegetation as a constructive element, extra isolation of the envelope, the use of the thermal inertia of enclosure and floors, the use of efficient lighting and air conditioning, the use of solar thermal energy for heating, integrated air conditioning and lighting control, power generation in the building, reducing water consumption and waste generation, the use of rainwater, use of recycled and recyclable materials and quality air control.
The building is conceived as a pilot office allowing direct experience of future developers and users. The extra cost of 5% over a conventional construction, along with the dissemination of the results of the monitoring of the building will be an excellent tool to promote sustainable architecture in the area of Malaga.
