Benefits of Estidama
By using the IDP, the design team helped to shape a seamless site and a whole building solution. The tangible benefits of this approach include:
- A Targeted40% reduction in annual energy consumption compared to an average building (ASHRAE reference baseline building)
- Anticipating 15% of energy consumption to be provided by renewable sources
- High performance envelope, reducing peak external heat gain by approximately 70% as compared to an average building (ASHRAE reference baseline building)
- Water use reduction by over 50% from a comparable building
- A targeted construction waste diversion (from landfill) of approximately 50%.
- Creating a building that by its very design will tell a compelling story of Estidama, without requiring extensive exhibits or narrative
