SAN FRANCISCO — The Orchard Hotel has become the first in San Francisco to obtain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) certification, according to Green Building Elements.
The owner of the Orchard Hotel, Mrs. S.C. Huang, has pressed for more environmentally friendly elements in her hotel ever since the cancer-related deaths of three family members, the story stated.
The Orchard Hotel is Energy Star rated and is 90 percent more energy efficient than a comparable, non-rated hotel, the story noted.
Some of the hotel''s sustainable aspects are a plate and frame heat exchanger on the rooftop that reduces heating and cooling costs, organic and naturally anti-microbial bed linens and restaurant menu items that incorporate local ingredients, the story added.
