The Premier Inn Hotel project at Abu Dhabi International Airport, due for completion later this month by construction company BAM International, is rated among the most eco-friendly in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The facility is the first in the Emirate to recycle used wash basin, bath and shower water, which is treated and later reused in toilets and for watering the surrounding landscape. Additionally, solar collectors on the roof provide for 25% of the establishment's hot water production and an evaporative pre-cooler to the air conditioning chillers further reduces energy costs.

This is according to Danny Leslie, Sustainability Consultant at BAM International, Dubai, the contractor behind the construction, technology and infrastructure at the Premier Inn.

 

"As part of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi's 'Plan 2030' to green the built environment, the Urban Planning Council has instituted mandatory green building regulations for all new projects. While all new projects must obtain at least a basic 'Pearl 1' rating, according to the Pearl Building Rating System (PBRS), the Premier Inn Hotel will achieve Pearl 2 status.

Additionally, BAM International has ensured that the various innovative and efficient green building strategies on the project have been implemented.

 

"The BAM International team created a comprehensive Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) that accounts for dust control, noise, storm water runoff, and various other key performance indices," says Leslie.

"We also incorporated a waste management plan that allows for over 85% of construction and demolition debris to be recycled or salvaged. In terms of indoor environmental quality, all adhesives, sealants, paints and coatings used on the building interior are low emitting, contributing to a less toxic indoor environment. Due to the environmental impact associated with shipping materials, BAM International procured as many materials as possible from the local area. This included using local manufacturers for tile, aluminium cladding, glass, and block work."

Speaking with regards to the quality of safety implemented during construction, William Leeman, Property, Projects & Facility Manager, Premier Inn Hotels, says, "The project boasts an outstanding safety record which includes over one million man hours being worked without any lost time due to injury on site. This shows a team of well managed employees committed to the safety of its team members. As Premier Inn is always conscious of its staff welfare, BAM International has shown great commitment to us as a client, to their staff and to the UAE."

Leslie adds, "The BAM International team is proud to be working on such a high-quality project that seeks to contribute to a more liveable community for current as well as future generations."

BAM International is one of the few contractors in the Middle East to have its own internal sustainability department, which is a useful advantage when competing for new projects in the region, the majority of which have PBRS or similar sustainability requirements.
