Eco-friendly hotel has low carbon footprint

(The Philippine Star) - October 8, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Seda Nuvali hotel by AyalaLand Hotels and Resorts Corp. (AHRC) recently received a LEED Silver Certification, the first Philippine hotel to be awarded this distinction in its category by the highly credible US Green Building Council.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is globally recognized as an independent third party certification program that ascertains a structure’s compliance with widely accepted green building design, construction and operation standards and guidelines.

Al Legaspi, president of Seda hotels and chief operating officer of AHRC, disclosed: “We’re greatly pleased that Seda Nuvali has exceeded benchmarks set by the US Green Building Council. The hotel’s highly efficient heating and air-conditioning systems, energy-saving lighting system and low-flow water fixtures considerably reduce its impact on the environment and minimize its carbon footprint.”

He recalled that Seda Nuvali contractor Makati Development Corp. and ecoSolutions, its lead mechanical and electrical consultant, collaborated to ensure that construction procedures would minimize wastage and limit disturbing the site.

Legaspi further noted that the Nuvali site is the first Seda hotel to integrate into its design the lake at its backyard. Aside from being a water recycling facility, the   landscaped lake is also the visual centerpiece of the Ayala Land community.
