AG7 was the first developer in Paraná to obtain GBC Brasil Casa certification, in the Gold category, for a residential real estate project, with the ÍCARO project, endowed with the best sustainability practices.
Promoting sustainability is to use technological or constructive resources in a rational way, promoting the development and advancement of technologies and methods with the aim of compromising and impacting the environment.
A project and building become sustainable once the developer is concerned with the best use of natural resources, such as lighting and natural ventilation, thus ensuring the longevity of the structure.
Moreover, a building becomes sustainable when it generates a positive return to the environment, using resources such as photovoltaic power generation, reuse of rainwater, sewage treatment and replacement of green areas.
AG7 incorporates all these concepts into its ventures. Our projects seek to value mainly three basic natural resources: sun, wind and water.
The sun is maximally used with the construction of buildings oriented to the north, from which better illumination and sunshine can be obtained, stimulating a greater permanence of the inhabitants in the internal environments. This orientation, combined with the installation of large windows, allows greater input of heat and lighting, and sterilize the environment against fungi and mites, for example.
The wind, in turn, is used with the installation of large windows in strategic positions, which end up providing a cross ventilation inside the apartments, thus allowing environments with much more pleasant temperatures.
For water, we use guidelines to conserve and reuse rainwater. We opt for the installation of flood containment tanks, the reuse of rainwater for the washing of sidewalks, the irrigation of flowerpots and gardens, and use timers that limit consumption in faucets and toilets.
We also use the most modern and efficient in air-conditioning equipment. Thus, even on days of heat, cold or excessive noise, the residents have the guarantee of comfort within the apartments.
We seek, in the end, a great result, not the maximum profit. And that goal is based on sustainability and the responsibility to offer a prosperous future to the next generations.
