On 9 July 2015, after not even 24 months of operations, Hotel Verde at Cape Town International Airport received their second LEED Platinum certification for their existing hotel operations, clearly demonstrating that with the right level of effort and commitment from the owner and facilities team, green buildings do not stop being green once they are built. The client had again engaged ecocentric as their principal LEED consultants, tasked with driving the certification effort with our partners, Ecolution Consulting, and the dedicated Hotel Verde team. Having been awarded 89 out of a possible 110 points for their LEED Existing Building Certification, this hotel has every right to call itself Africa’s Greenest Hotel. ecocentric are extremely proud to have been part of this phenomenal journey with the Hotel Verde team.
