The Pullman is a hotel project in Addis Ababa, developed by Enyi Hotel plc for Accor Group, one of the world’s largest hospitality companies.
Located in the heart of the city, close to the National Palace and international institutions such as the United Nations, the hotel’s construction was carried out with a focus on sustainability throughout the entire process. The project has achieved preliminary EDGE certification, incorporating resource-efficient technologies such as more efficient glazing, an energy-efficient AC system, energy-saving lightbulbs, and water-efficient plumbing fixtures for guest rooms and common spaces. Making use of more sustainable construction techniques, the developers were able to further lower the energy embodied in construction materials, resulting in a lower carbon footprint for the entire project.
The Pullman Hotel has received a Preliminary EDGE Certificate from Sintali SGS.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, higher thermal performance glass, air conditioning with water-cooled chiller, energy-saving light bulbs for internal and spaces and back of building, lighting controls for common spaces and occupancy sensors for bathrooms.
Low-flow showerheads, low-flow faucets in guest rooms, water-efficient kitchen faucets, efficient flush for water closets in all bathrooms, water-efficient urinals, and aerators for faucets with auto shut-off feature.
Medium weight hollow concrete blocks for internal and external walls, vinyl flooring, and in-situ reinforced concrete slab for floor and roof.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
