The only LEED certified hotel in Nepal

LEED Certification

Soaltee Westend Premier Hotel is the only hotel to be LEED Certified (on process) in Nepal. LEED Certification is all about rating system devised of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design by United States Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.

LEED Certification will have different points system like;
  • o Certified 40-49 Points
  • o Silver 50-59 Points Initially we will go for Silver level certification
  • o Gold 60-79 Points
  • o Platinum 80 above

Why Soaltee Westend Premier is called Green building concept hotel?

  • 1. Activities carried out by hotel affects less to environment.
  • 2. Hotel retains top soil of the land during construction to save the fertility of the land.
  • 3. Hotel’s each room are designed in such engineering technique that maximum sunlight can be obtained in the rooms so that lights usage can be minimized.
  • 4. Rooms windows are double glazed to maintain and retain the appropriate internal temperature of rooms with outside temperature.
  • 5. Smoke scrubber is a system used by hotel for filtration of kitchen exhaust smoke filtered with water before exposing to open air to save environment.
  • 6. Hotel use Building Management System (BMS) which is computer based control system installed in building that controls and monitors the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as Ventilation, Lighting, Power systems, Fire systems, Physical access control, pumping stations, Elevators and security system.
  • 7. Hotel Use Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) which is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater. Physical, Chemical and biological processes are used to remove contaminants and produce treated wastewater that is safer for the environment. Solid & liquid waste is separated where solid treated waste will be used as fertilizer and used in gardening purpose. Liquid waste is treated and recycled for irrigation and toilet flushing.
  • 8. Hotel use Water Treatment Plant (WTP) which is a process to treat raw water to safe to drink water. This process includes coagulation, Flocculation, Sedimentation, Filtration and disinfection.
  • 9. Rain water harvesting is another environmental friendly act performed by Hotel. Water collection from rain is collected in underground tank which is stored and used accordingly as and when required like irrigation, fire hose etc.
  • Hotel uses Radiant Technology which is a process of maintaining hotel building temperature constant to 22-24 degree centigrade. Floors contain spiral laid PVC pipe which later supplied by hot/cold water from manifold in winter/summer respectively for constant temperature maintain from hot water generator and chiller respectively.
    • o Fan Coil Unit (FCU) is a simple device consisting of a heating and/or cooling heat exchanger or Coil and fan.
    • o Air Handling Unit (AHU) is a device used to regulate and circulate air as a part of a heating, Ventilating and air-conditioning.
    • o Heat Recovery Unit (HRU) is balanced ventilation system. It is a balanced low energy ventilation solution for new dwelling and re-uses up to 95% of the heat that would have otherwise have been loss. Final exhaust air too is filtered before exposing to environment which affects less to environment.
    • o Variable Air Volume is a system which supply a constant air flow at a variable temperature. Precise temperature control, low energy consumption by system fans, less fan noise and additional passive dehumidification are its importance.

Benefits of Radiant:
o Good for health, as radiant technology doesn’t produce any gas as A/C produce which affect directly to our health.
o Constant temperature maintenance saves energy from high consumption of electricity.
o Disposed air are filtered and exposed to outer environment which minimizes less effect to nature.
o Noise free technology makes your stay comfortable and sound sleep brings happiness.

Each staff/trainees of the hotel should be able to describe these details to guest and should be answerable upon any inquiry raised by the guest at any time any place.
