Verdino Vista Hermosa
Guatemala City, Guatemala
This innovative residential concept integrates a combination of apartments and lofts with more than 1,500m2 of gardens and beautiful forest views. Solar panels to power water heaters and heat pumps, wind engines and advanced water treatment technology help reduce energy consumption and conserve water. Concrete used in the Verdino project was produced on site to reduce traffic from concrete trucks and the cement used in the concrete was produced with 30% less energy than conventional cement.
PENETRON ADMIX SB was chosen to enhance the durability of the concrete and effectively waterproof and protect the Verdino structure. PENETRON ADMIX SB was also added to the concrete of all plant-holding balconies to prevent water seepage. The convenience of the soluble bags resulted in significant time and cost savings. PENETRON products are non-toxic and contain no petroleum-based waterproofing materials, which contributed to the environmental-friendly concept of Verdino.
