Engineering & Natural Resources
Jakson Inns, Phaltan is India's first CII IGBC LEED Platinum certified hotel . LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
Energy Efficient Building
To ensure we conserve the energy within the building and to reduce outside heat transmission into the building we have used.
1. Hollow bricks in the external wall.
2. We have underdeck insulation in the roof.
3. Window Wall ratio is limited to 30%.
4. Double glazed windows - this reduces the heat transmission in the building, thus reducing the burden on our Air Condtioning system. These factors have all contributed to good building envelope.
Locally Sourced Material
The materials required for Jakson Inns Phaltan project were majorly locally sourced within 400km form the site.
We have used energy efficient CFL / LED lamps for staff as well as guest areas.
We have installed solar panels to reduce the pressure on the mainpower grid and produce energy through the cleanest source.Our solar panels have the capacity to generate 74 KW of energy per day.
We have recently installed a 350 KW Solar Plant that generates 1400 units per day bringing down our electricity costs by 30%.
Bio degradable plant
We have our own bio degradable plant. This facility reduces our dependence on cylinders and fertilizers by recycling organic waste.
Water Treatment Plant
The hotel is self sufficient in its water requirement. We have our own well & borewell. The water from the borewell is send through water filteration process and then used for consumption.
Sewage Treatment Plant
At Jakson Inns, the water from Sewage Treatment plant is used for irrigation and flushing and thus by recycling we ensure zero water discharge from the site and reducing the pressure on our resources.
Rain water harvesting & Water conservation
To maximise the conservation of water we have installed Rain Water Harvesting system. All sanitary fixtures are also designed to achieve minimum water discharge.
Power saving unit
All our guest rooms have power saving unit. One needs to insert the room key in it to switch on the power. Once the key is removed the power shuts in 13 seconds.
We provide employees mass transportation to reduce the use of personal vehicles. This is turn helps in
reducing air pollution.
At Jakson Inns, we launder our guest room linen once in 48 hours. This helps in reducing the pressure on our valued resources, thus enables our guest to also contribute towards saving energy
The residual exhaust form our Laundry and Air conditioning system is utilised to provide hot water in the showers.
We save electricity through various ways: 1. Heat Recovery Wheel - Saves electricty by extracting Internal temperature. 2. Variable refrigerant volume system - Saves electricty as it works on Occupancy/ Rooms occupied in a particular area. 3. Heat Pump- As the boiler heat pumps work on the define temperature break down system. 4. Hydro pneumatic sytem - We use it for water supply in the building which works as per the requirment and occupancy in particular part of the building
Recycling of material on site
The leftover tiles that were sourced from the site were used in back of the house areas like Laundry, etc. Such process helped us in recycling most of the material available at site.
In order to increase GREEN area in the hotel vicinity, we have Grass Pavers in the parking areas.
Reduce use of plastic
In our endeavor to make all Jakson Hotels plastic free, at Jakson Inns we have reduced plastic items to zero. We have eliminated mineral water bottles from rooms & now provide purified drinking water. Bottled water is availble as a sale item & guests are encouraged to avoid its use.
