External pervious areas and green roofs along with water harvesting structures retain 100% of storm water catchment onsite.
100% of the irrigation, flushing, and cooling tower requirements is met through treated effluent.
Use of water efficient fixtures reduces the building water use by 35% compared to conventional benchmarks.
The landscape area has carefully chosen native, adaptive and low maintenance vegetation species to minimize water requirement. Further, shading of ground covers by trees helps reduce evaporation losses thus reducing water consumption.
Drip irrigation and timer based controls for operating the irrigation valves further eliminates the wastage of water.
In laundry, the water from last wash is used for the prewash of the subsequent cycle. Further, use of low alkaline environmental friendly washing liquids helps reduce run time and saves water
The hotel is well connected by public transportation. The bus stations, the Guindy railway station and the Metro Rail corridor collectively offer a quantifiable reduction in private automobile use by the associates.
The project is located in a prime urban area, with existing infrastructure.
100% of the car-parking is located under cover, reducing paved areas onsite to eliminate heat island effect.
The roof is a combination of green roof, reflective paints and high SRI finish on domes to reduce thermal gradient differences after sunlight hours.
100% recycling of waste generated by hotel operations by waste segregation at source and utilization for useful purposes. An onsite organic waste converter capable of converting 100% of organic waste produced per day into manure is put up.
There is a Comprehensive virtual training program, and green education to create awareness among all stakeholders.
