Sunnery is a 10-story housing project located in the San Borja district of Lima, Peru. It is the second EDGE-certified project developed by Binda Ingenieros, a local real estate development firm with the support of LIMA1007 as designing architects and M2-Percca Motta as certification consultants. Sunnery consists of a total of 40 apartments with an average floor space of 107 square meters. The project was designed with a the goal to cover 50% of uncovered common areas with vegetation.

By incorporating modern construction technologies such as reflective paint and tiles for roofs, external shading devices, the use of energy-saving appliances such as LED lightbulbs and water-efficient plumbing features, the project was able to significantly reduce its energy and water consumption, resulting in a more sustainable construction project and a reduced carbon footprint.

Sunnery has received Final EDGE Certification from Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).
