Camu is betting on the development of its projects with sustainability.
Company Manager Clarena Mejía recalled that the firm’s commitment to sustainability in housing construction, La Republica reported.
“As construction entrepreneurs, we can contribute positively to sustainability and generate harmonious developments through environmentally friendly construction practices,” Mejia said.
She said that the search for international sustainability certifications in construction, forest restoration and conservation processes, and community empowerment programs help in this process.
The expert highlighted that two of Camu’s projects are certified in Edge Sustainable Construction. She said that this certification is given to projects that meet high sustainability standards from design to construction, creating more efficient housing in water and energy consumption.
The company has a program called ‘Creciendo Juntos’ (Growing Together), which seeks to train and formalize construction contractors. This initiative won the Corporate Social Responsibility award from Camacol Risaralda.
Camu is implementing BIM methodology to improve efficiency in housing construction, optimizing time and resources from project design to project development.
In addition, the firm supported the planting of six forests in Armenia with more than 1,600 native species in 4.3 hectares of strategic protection soils for the region. Camu worked in coordination with public entities to reforest biological corridors with the planting of almost 10,000 trees to protect water sources in the territory.
At present, Camu is present in Armenia, Pereira, Dosquebradas and Manizales, with housing projects.
