The current average age of our hotels buildings is 15 years (Dalata Hotel Group). This is quite low by comparison to many of our counterparts and our hotels will be more efficient in their use of energy as a result.
We operate a very comprehensive capital investment programme which ensures we continually look to maintain and up-grade our hotels to the highest standards.
As we continue to expand our portfolio (11 new hotels currently under development across Dalata Hotel Group), our overall performance in this area will continue to improve as we benefit from new building technologies and efficiencies.
As part of the new build process we issue a set of ‘Employer Requirements’ to the developer/builder. In these requirements we outline that a standard of BREAM ‘very good’ is be achieved. BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for master planning projects, infrastructure and buildings.
