The key goals achieved by the development includes:
High standards, in energy conservation and measures to reduce overall energy demands
Rigorous targets to minimise water consumption particularly within the Hotel
Use of Low & Zero Carbon Technologies to reduce the carbon emissions onsite.
For the Hotel development the Low and Zero Carbon (LZC) technologies being considered, include;
Photovoltaic panels on the roof (utilising maximum available space)
Combined Heating & Power plant
Air source heat pumps with heat recovery
Ability to connect in the future, to district heating, when available within the locality.
The selection of the technologies will be selected based on their life-cycle appropriateness, demonstrated as the design develops; and ensuring the BREEAM requirements are not compromised.
Environmental goals as evidenced within the BREEAM Pre-assessment, which achieves a Very Good benchmark.
A BREEAM Very Good rating equates to a score of 55% or more; the Hotel achieves this standard in line with planning requirements.
