Sustainable building practices imply respecting and being committed to the preservation of the environment, efficiently consuming energy and water and using natural resources and materials which are not harmful to the environment.
It is not easy to change building construction systems and to manage their operation. This reality is even more palpable in the rehabilitation of historic buildings. In order to achieve part of the objectives of a reasonably sustainable building from an environmental and energy efficient point of view, it is necessary to take all these elements into account from the beginning of the design phase, and with commitment carry it all though to the construction phase. At CoolRooms Hotels our commitment to energy saving and sustainable construction is unwavering.
