Energy-intensive building

The "Villas CHADA" project is one of the first projects in Morocco to respect the new national thermal regulations (RTCM). Indeed, it is distinguished by its thermal and acoustic efficiency, its hot water production by solar panels, and a photovoltaic installation that can supply the network of the house, remaining independent of the electrical circuit.

Indoor Air quality

    A very neat architectural design with large openings and bay windows allowing optimal natural ventilation and a quality of holy air.


    The project favors the following elements:

    • South orientation for day rooms;
    • Terracotta brick for interior walls that receive winter solar radiation;
    • Provide in the North the rooms with little heat;
    • Group night rooms that are less heated in general.

    An acoustic comfort higher than 54 dBA.

    The outer casing of the villas is made in single wall with thermal brick terracotta "Kasbah system", optimizing the thermal comfort (U = 0.7) and acoustic (54dBA) villas.

    Very interesting product in thermal and acoustic insulation.

Urban environment

Spread over an area of ​​50,000   m², the project "Villa CHADA", is located in the third phase of the urban and industrial pole Al Omrane Sahel and well served directly by the Highway and the National Road No. 1 (Casa-El Jadida). It consists of 108 finished villas, 2 amenities of general interest and 2 spaces of games & sports and green spaces.

Common green space in the project = 1123   m² (knowing that the project is located in front of a green leisure area of ​​2.3ha and an existing forest of 40 ha).
