maximum respect to the environment

This is the concept that could be used to define the philosophy behind all Habidite products: namely, the most utter respect for the environment and the intensive application of all those
technologies allowing better use of natural resources whilst providing improved comfort and optimum connectivity.

cubierta

Habidite buildings have the highest possible respect for the environment. Roofs and flat surfaces are conceived as landscaped garden areas, thus permitting the complete recovery of green zones eliminated by the building itself. These rooftop gardens act as magnificent thermal insulation, reducing the energy requirements of buildings and allowing rainwater to be collected before being filtered and re-used in cisterns. This water is also used in toilets. The system allows savings of up to 60% in each building’s water consumption.

Roofs and flat surfaces are also equipped with thermal and photovoltaic solar panels which, together with the building’s Class A+ power consumption domestic appliances, ventilated façades and “smart” blinds, permit huge power savings in every building.

ecological and bioclimatic architecture

architect

  • Optimising power resources during building construction.
  • Positive application of environmental conditions during the project, construction and life of the building.
  • Adapting the project to meet the environmental demands of the spot in which the building is to be erected.
  • Using renewable energies during the modules’ manufacturing process.

eco-engineering

  • Sequential operation programming for domestic appliances with high power consumption.
  • Constructing solar chimneys to create natural flues in shunts in order to provide proper natural ventilation.
  • Inserting natural skylights to take full advantage of daylight.

sustainable construction

  • Construction options oriented towards minimizing the depletion of materials and power.
  • Priority given to local raw materials in order to cut transport costs.

sostenibility

materials and waste

  • Optimal management of all construction materials.
  • Use of re-usable materials in manufacturing processes.
  • Re-use of waste and materials in different stages of the construction process.
  • Improved control of production processes meaning a drastic reduction in the costs of rubble, transportation and clearing-up operations.
  • Optimisation of energy resources during building construction.
  • Implementation of a viable and efficient waste disposal plan using an
    automatisation process.

waste

minimising building impact

  • Clean manufacturing and implantation processes. Since there is no real onsite work, so possible sources of pollution are eliminated.
  • Reduction of impact, not only acoustically and intensity, but also as far as duration is concerned (work takes less time) because all the most annoying processes take place in a controlled environment at the manufacturing plant itself.
  • Reduction of the visual impact of work. Since construction time is reduced by some 60%, the building is integrated into its environment much faster.
  • Accordingly, visually disagreeable or aggressive elements such as scaffolding,
    rubble, fences and risk areas rapidly disappear.
  • Reduction of heavy traffic reduces traffic of lorries to the site. Traffic is limited to transporting perfectly clean and packaged already-finished modules.

minimising the impact of the building in its surroundings

Buildings are equipped with landscaped terraces that help recover the green areas occupied by the building itself, thereby reducing the “thermal island” effect in surrounding urbanised and nonurbanised areas, improving the air quality by reducing the CO2 emissions and offering friendlier and less uglier landscapes when seen “from a bird’s eye view”.

At the same time, roofs can be used as leisure spaces, provide excellent thermal insulation and allow rainwater to be collected and re-used.

ecology

erenewable energies

  • Thermal solar energy: the use of solar panels allows savings of up to 60-70% of the annual energy consumption needed to produce hot water.
  • Photovoltaic solar energy: generates between 40 and 50% of the electricity used in each home. Surplus electricity is returned to the electric grid.

energy

energy efficiency of equipment and installed systems

  • High-performance, low-consumption heating system equipped with modular condensing boiler with watertight circuit and 4-star energy consumption classification.
  • High-performance cooling system
  • Installation of Class A+ power consumption domestic electrical appliances.
  • Adjustable load, low water consumption, bio-thermal washing machines and dishwashers equipped with pre-heated water intakes from the building’s thermal panel heating systems.
  • Low-consumption lighting equipment whose intensity can be regulated.

 

water savings

  • Hydraulically balanced installations preventing high water consumption due to excess supply.
  • Reduced-volume toilets and cisterns equipped with discharge selectors.
  • Spray taps (faucets) equipped with pressure reducers/stabilisers and pearlising flow nozzles.
  • Waste water recovery systems for cisterns resulting in savings of between 30 and 45% of fresh drinking water.
  • Rainwater collection and recovery systems for washing machines, dishwashers and landscaped community area sprinkler watering systems.
