World-Class Sustainable Development

The Costa Rica Convention Center is the only sustainably and ecologically designed center in the country intended to protect and make the most of the resources available.

Some sustainable design benefits at the Center include:

  • Reuse of rainwater for irrigation and other purposes inside the building, where possible.
  • Water heating through systems using solar energy.
  • Interiors with natural lighting and sunlight diffuser.
  • Indoor lighting with LED systems and outdoor lighting with solar energy panels.
  • Water-treatment plant with 400m 3 water capacity per day.
  • Automatic shut-off faucets by mechanical means or motion sensors for most effective use of water.
  • Use of reflective roofs, walls and sun visors to reduce solar heat and allow for air conditioning systems to work with the minimum degree possible.
  • High-tech air conditioning with energy saving systems for specific building areas, without air conditioning costs in unused rooms.
  • Motion sensors for on/off switching, solid and liquid waste management, etc.
