Hyatt Regency Delhi receives historic environmental designation
Hyatt Regency Delhi has become one of the few hotels in Delhi to earn LEED platinum certification.
“With this, Hyatt Regency Delhi establishes itself as one of the few global leaders for energy and environment design,” said Aseem Kapoor, general manager for Hyatt Regency Delhi.
As a LEED platinum five-star hotel, Hyatt Regency Delhi is now recognized on the basis of excellence in sustainable design, water efficiency, energyand atmosphere, material and resources, indoor environmental quality and innovation in operations, reports the Pioneer. The property is also committed toreducelight pollution.
All facade, external and landscape lights are selected and mounted in a way that lets minimal light into the sky. The building envelope was also designed in a manner that does not let excessive indoor light outside. The vernacular architecture emphasized the usage of local materials, which were easily available and suitable for a particular region and which also results in low maintenance.
“Market transformation happens one building at a time. Hyatt understands the value of LEED and has exemplified extraordinary leadership in reshaping their sector,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council, the creators of LEED and GBCI. “The success of LEED is due to the partnership and support of those committed to advancing green building and sustainability. Each new certification is one step closer to revolutionizingthe environment in which live, work and play.”
