Building Types: Hospitality
For EDGE-certified hotels, sustainability sells.
“What is the energy and water intensity of your hotel? Is your hotel certified green by an internationally-recognized provider?” Today’s corporate clients won’t commit to staying at a hotel unless these questions are answered well.
By using the EDGE software at the design stage, a hotel developer already knows the numbers in order to respond to discerning guests. And by achieving EDGE certification, the developer has proof of going beyond self-regulation to become a truly resource-efficient enterprise.
Such factors as the hotel’s star rating, the occupancy rate and whether there are laundry services all come into play when creating a base case model within EDGE.
This numeric approach to design is one that any corporate leader can understand – and what can be easily understood at the top can be rapidly set in motion. Simply put, sustainability means a better bottom line, as utilities savings of 20% or more can help hotel owners fight for that last 2% of profitability. That is why for hotels in emerging markets, EDGE is a tool for survival.
