LEED Jakson Inns, Phaltan is India's first 3 star 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.
Energy Conservation We have used energy efficient CFL / LED lamps for staff as well as guest areas.
Fuel conservation We provide employees mass transportation to reduce the use of personal vehicles. This is turn helps in
reducing air pollution.

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.
