SUMAC was the advisor for obtaining LEED certification of the project, including energy modeling, fundamental commissioning, as well as advice on planning of measurement and verification plan (M & V) and supervision during the construction stage.

This new Arca Continental plant that is destined for the production of Toni dairy products, is located in the outskirts of Guayaquil. The project considered innovative strategies to reduce energy consumption in the plant and its processes. In addition, the project has water collection systems, which will be reused in bathrooms and irrigation, achieving 30% water savings. Likewise, landscaping design is one of the major sustainable components of the project, native and low-consumption plants have been selected and reforestation of endangered species is underway.
