Chapter 4: Architectural and Physical Design

Communicating the overall sustainable vision to members of the planning, design and construction teams will help them to think of the hotel as a complete, interdependent system with specific features and performance requirements and not as a collection of electrical, mechanical and structural engineering disciplines.

The design process requires an interactive approach where everyone involved in the use, operation, construction and design of a hotel interacts closely to understand the issues and concerns of all the other parties, and then makes decisions based on the sustainability principles that have been defined for the project.
