Wyndham Hotel is World First in Environmentally Sustainable Building
January 11, 2019 11:13 am
The Wyndham LUX Perth development has become the first hotel worldwide to obtain a verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), an internationally recognised document displaying its sustainability credentials.
An EPD reports the environmental impact and entire life cycle of a product or system. It is assessed through scientific methods and conducted according to international standards.
Wyndham LUX Perth received the verification after a rigorous process which determined the building’s environmental footprint, including where its materials were sourced, how they were transported and the fuel efficiency of the transport.
The hotel will be built by NXT TEC, which has developed a unique, simple model of assembling buildings in a way that reduces wastage and improves efficiency.
