The Recreational Center is part of the University of Lima’s master plan. Among the LEED characteristics, we can mention the reduced island heat effect due to the materials chosen for the roof and exteriors. This project forecasts 40% of indoor water savings and 50% of outdoor water savings. The building showcases 24% of energy savings due to the use of LED lights and solar panels that provide 5% of the building’s total energy demand. We carried a study of natural ventilation to ensure optimal use in the winter months, and natural lighting and quality of views for the majority of the interior spaces. 50% of demolition and construction waste was recycled, and we allocated areas for the segregation of waste in operation. SUMAC utilized materials with sustainable criteria; recycled content and wood certified by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).
