Energy Efficiency and Sustainability


Bioclimatic Architecture and Sustainable Design

New materials and components

New Simulation and certification tools


The analysis of a building project in terms of an integrated Environmental and Energy Efficiency, holds several activities areas intertwined to each other, forming a power that increases the possibilities for improvement in all aspects.
The fields in which you must act enclose all the stages, from the basic project, to the monitoring, once is in operation, However the sooner the intervention stage is, greater the benefit to obtain with a lower associated cost it will be.

LEED Certification

Our solutions assure our costumers the lowest energy consumption and the lowest environmental footprint of its building with the lowest cost of construction and maintenance.

The buildings have primarily an impact on people's lives and in the health of the planet. It is necessary to take into account that buildings use about one third of total energy, two thirds of the electricity, one eighth of water and transform land that provides valuable ecological resources. The classification system of sustainable buildings for new construction LEED helps improve the quality of the buildings and their impact on the environment.
SOLINTEL has the experience and knowledge required to advise developers, architects and the general public and private customers into obtaining LEED certification, Nowadays this certification, is in the world the one with most prestige that a building project can get, knowing the aspects of energy efficiency, sustainability and reducing CO2 emissions.

We have qualified experts able to do rigorous analysis in the following disciplines:

  • Bioclimatic Design Analysis
  • Shadow Analysis (Tales of shadows)
  • Constructive Materials Analysis
  • Materials life cycle Analysis
  • Facilities Analysis
  • Lighting Analysis
  • Acoustic Analysis
  • Air Quality Analysis
  • Hygrothermic Analysis

Simulation on specific software (Ecotec, Acous Staff, Dialux, Fluent, Design Builder, Trnsys, among others) and estimation of energy consumption. The proposals are quantified in energy savings terms, setting the amount of saving in the emission of greenhouse gases.

  • Plot Analysis

The place in which the project is developed should take into consideration several parameters, such as generating soft zones needed to reduce the heat island effect, as well as creating microclimates to improve the thermal conditions around the environment, it can also function as an element that allows capture rain water to be used later (for example, in irrigation of vegetation).

  • Water efficiency

Finding a surface shortly water consumer and effective development in the systems projects for the reuse of used water. This limits the dependence of the building with respect to the supply of the drinking water net.

  • Energy

The parameters that must be taken into consideration are covered in two major points, the first of them is to considerate during the architectural design, the influence of the local climate on the project, in this way is possible to generate passive strategies to reduce energy consumption, the second aspect to consider is the optimization of all kinds of facilities, from the air-conditioning to lighting. With a good performance in reaching these points, it is possible to prevent the emission of large quantities of tons of CO2 over the lifetime of the project.

  • Materials

For the materials that will be use in the project it will be necessary a complete life time cycle analysis, also implementing a material managing policy of the three "Rs" (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle).

  • Interior Environmental Quality

This is one of the most important aspects to consider, because it encompasses various aspects that influence both in comfort and in productivity for building users, thereby improving the life quality and reducing casualties from diseases caused by buildings within its users. The aspects to consider are Hygrothermic comfort, lightly comfort, acoustic comfort and indoor air quality.

  • Facilities

The optimization of the facilities from the air-conditioning, to even, special ones like domotics, is one of the factors that cause greater influence on energy savings, the optimization of them is a differentiating point of impact. The optimization of all strategies is reflected in the facilities.
