Cinnamon Bey Beruwala Pioneers LEED Gold

Sustainable efforts of Cinnamon BeyBeruwala from its inception as a project were recognized and rewarded by LEED as one of the best projects in Sri Lanka recently.

With this recognition Cinnamon BeyBeruwala became the first hotel in Sri Lanka to be awarded the LEED V-2009 Gold certification after observing and meeting the expectations of all green standards required of a business entity.

 

Some of the key green features in the hotel building included: an energy efficient envelope and mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems, resulting in utility cost savings of 32.2% and innovative water management strategies that allow the building to use 65.62% less potable water than a conventional building. During construction, 70% of the construction waste was diverted from landfills and sent to recycling plants for reuse. Innovative water-efficient landscaping system that was in place also reduced the potable water usage in the irrigation system by 100% and a commendable strategic Erosion and Sedimentation Control System kept the contamination and pollution to the eco system at a minimum.
