TUCSON- A local hotel has been awarded the “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design 2018 New Construction and Major Renovations” certification.
The award showcases The AC Hotel Tucson Downtown as an example of environmental design, while it also demonstrated leadership in transforming downtown development.
“I have a dream that every hotel starts to use this process,” said Gregg Joyal, the General Manager at The AC Hotel. “I think it’s something that really helps us be sustainable, really helps us to create just a better earth, it’s the only one we have.”
The hotel had to meet strict requirements including using recycled products and maintaining strict power usage during and after construction.
