Passive construction and nZEB
According to the European directive 2010/31/EU, as of 2018 for public buildings and 2020 for the rest of newly built buildings, these must be of almost zero energy consumption (nZEB-nearly Zero Energy Buildings). CAMMI anticipates compliance with this regulation with its construction system, managing to build buildings with energy certifications A, currently the maximum, and even certified by international entities such as the Passivhaus Institut, LEED, Breeam, Minergie or Verde-GBCe, among others.
This type of construction is based on a sustainable architecture of passive design, that is, taking into account the climatic and geographical conditions of each location with good orientation, capture and protection of solar radiation, a high degree of insulation of an envelope without thermal bridges, and a good seal to the outside air of the entire building with high energy efficiency carpentry, in order to guarantee the minimum energy demand, which will later be completed with the correct choice of the most efficient active systems for the contribution of natural energy .
Sustainable and healthy construction
CAMMI offers an environmentally friendly alternative by reducing excess CO2 emissions on the planet by using materials with the minimum carbon footprint, such as wood from sustainably managed forests certified with the PEFC or FSC seals, in addition to also opt for other natural, recyclable or recycled materials for insulation and cladding. CAMMI’s commitment to sustainable architecture also includes savings in water consumption through the reuse of rainwater and gray water, and the minimization of waste in the construction of buildings.
People’s health is also an important part of our constructions, and that is why prior to the start of a project, we propose carrying out a geobiological study that allows reducing the effects of terrestrial or artificial radiation, which are harmful to the nervous system. and immunology of the human being. Likewise, we recommend biocompatible electrical installations, to avoid electromagnetic fields, as well as the use of materials free of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that are harmful to health.
