This education project is a perfect example of how energy efficiency and sustainability can be achieved at zero cost. SUMAC provided the LEED consulting for the construction phase of the project, including energy modeling and Commissioning. The new campus exemplifies the brand and mission of the institution by minimizing the consumption of natural resources through innovative design strategies and systems.
The project was designed to consider the direction and intensity of the wind in order to provide highly comfortable spaces using only natural ventilation. Likewise, the orientation of the building and its structure captures the maximum sunlight to increase power savings. Most importantly the project gives a new image to the Barranco neighborhood in Lima, combining innovation, design and creativity in a great building.
