Sustainability

The ALCACER VINTAGE aims to be a truly sustainable development in terms of environmental and social stewardship. It aims to be certified under BREEAM standards -a UK voluntary measurement rating for Green Buildings, equivalent to LEED, in the US, and HQE (Haute Qualité Environnementale), in France.


These standards will be implemented not only at Design Stage and Construction, but also in terms of maintenance and management, which will meet ISO14001: 2004 guidelines.


This includes, among others, Climate Control Efficiency, Solid Waste Recycling, No-Net-Negative Impacts, Environmental Integrity (materials & resources), Waste Management, Water Recycling, Green Power Production and Integrated Power Efficiency.


In addition, it aims at showcasing some of the most promising innovations in sustainable design, such as: Micro Wind Mill Power Generators; Living green roofs and facades; Building Integrated Photovoltaic Technologies (BIPVs); Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs); Rain Collection and Grey Water Systems; Energy Monitoring Devices; Sunlight Transport; Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs); Insulated Daylighting Panels, etc.
