LEED BD+C: Core and Shell v3 - LEED 2009

Centro Comercial Viva Wajiira

Calle 15 # 18-274
Riohacha, 440001

LEED Gold 2016

VIVA WAJIIRA is a new project developed by Grupo Éxito, a company founded in 1972 in Medellín, Colombia. It is also known as Almacenes Éxito S.A., the largest South American and European retail company operating 479 stores, which sell a wide range of products including food, clothes, and furniture.

As part of its commitment to reduce its operations’ environmental impact and efforts to combat climate change, Grupo Éxito pursued LEED Gold certification under the Core & Shell rating system. A mall project located in Riohacha (which is in La Guajira, Colombia), VIVA WAJIIRA’s design and construction optimizes energy use in the building, including its HVAC and lighting systems; reduces potable water consumption; and takes advantage of its location by installing a photovoltaic system.

The first floor was designed for retail and commercial spaces, while the second floor includes food court spaces and commercial spaces. The underground parking also has spaces dedicated to administrative offices, electrical and technical rooms.
