High Performance Buildings Insights for Hotels

Occupancy rates in hotels vary greatly, requiring a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system that can adapt to those types of changes while still providing an absolutely comfortable environment for guests.

The challenge for luxury hotels like the Sofitel London Heathrow is aligning the hotel's high-end offerings with the company's environmental concerns. 

The Sofitel London Heathrow reflects a strong corporate commitment to sustainability by developer Arora Hotels, one of the fastest growing, privately owned hotel companies in the United Kingdom.  During the development of the hotel, planners carefully chose energy conservation measures for the 605 bedroom building to optimize guest comfort and employee productivity while meeting sustainability objectives.

In this video, executives from the Sofitel London Heathrow and experts from Trane discuss how high performance hotels like Sofitel London Heathrow include systems that allow owners to be environmentally aware while still offering the on-demand luxury services that customers expect.
