LatAm Parque Logístico Lima Sur is a 24-hectares logistics park in the valley of Lima’s Lurin district. The park’s three warehouses offer a modern space for distribution in a growing urban hub of Peru. Built as an example of resource efficiency in the industrial sector, a grey water treatment and recycling system was installed in the logistics parks to reduce the its water use by almost 80 percent. The wastewater is reused for irrigation of the property’s 16,000 square meters of gardens.
LatAm Parque Logístico Lima Sur’s Edificio 200 reduces its energy usage by almost half through energy-saving lighting in the sales area, reflective paint and roof insulation. Skylights were also incorporated into the design, providing daylight to half of the floor area.
The developer, LatAm Logístico Properties (LLP), understands the unique local market dynamics in urban hubs across Latin America. They develop, acquire and operate state-of-the-art, Class-A warehouses in Peru, Colombia and Costa Rica. Leveraging its team throughout the region, the company provides local expertise in market dynamics, site selection and regulatory approvals.
LatAm Parque Logístico Lima Sur has received two final EDGE certifications from GBCI, with Edificio 200 receiving EDGE Advanced certification.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, reflective paint/tiles and insulation of the roof, energy-saving lighting in the sales area and skylights to provide daylight to fifty percent of the top floor area.
Dual-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals, aerators and auto shut-off faucets, and a black water treatment and recycling system.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor, steel sheets on steel rafters for the roof, plasterboards on metal studs with insulation for internal walls and steel profile cladding and medium weight hollow concrete blocks for external walls.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
