Transforming Existing Hotels to Net Zero Carbon

Designing for 2 Facility Management 2.0

Learn from this real-life case study on how to reduce operational energy to achieve net-zero carbon

This white paper, produced in collaboration with Arup, Gleeds and IHG, tackles the operational net-zero carbon challenge for existing hotels using a real-life case study to demonstrate the impact of each stage in the journey. It sets out a high-level framework, prioritizing different interventions throughout the lifecycle with the goal of achieving net-zero carbon in an existing hotel by 2050 in order to meet new regulatory requirements. The study focuses on reducing operational energy to achieve net-zero carbon; also considered is the embodied carbon impact of interventions, and how that compares to building new.

The study focuses on how engineers can design systems differently to:

    1. reduce operational energy to achieve net-zero carbon
    2. consider the embodied carbon impact of interventions
    3. transform existing buildings to net zero, in comparison to building new ones
