To reduce and monitor our water usage. We have selected water saving shower head systems and taps to reduce excessive water pressure and use in all hotels.
To re-use supply of rainwater we utilise our 25,000L Industrial Fire water tanks on the roofs of our hotels. By applying this practise, we not only save water, but offer easy access to water in a case of a fire.
Installed in all the hotels are Rinnai HD200e instantaneous water units. Instantaneous water heating solutions help us save on gas energy and water usage. As hot water is only produced when you need, unlike cylinder hot water systems that consume energy even when you don’t use any hot water.
Gas & Electricity
Our reception foyer & hallways throughout the hotels are fitted with lobby censored lighting to save energy. We also extend this to energy saving light bulb in every room, where all power is controlled by a card.
Our OTIS elevators onsite are self-generated when it comes to re-using power. The ReGen Otis is a traction elevator specifically designed to capture heat during use and convert into reusable energy for the building rather than wasting it as heat.
Air-conditioning and heating has highest setting 26c and lowest 16c to prevent excess energy use.
Use of Battery Door lock system on all doors throughout the property also have their impact on cost savings in moving away from a reliance on electrical power. Additionally, batteries used in a battery-powered electronic access control system can be recycled resulting in further reduction.
