The four-star Grafton Hotel of 31/32 Lower Stephen Street, Dublin 2, has been received the BREEAM certification, following an assessment process of its environmental, social and economic sustainability performance, using standards developed by BRE.
BREEAM is a sustainability assessment method for master planning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle, from new construction to in-use and refurbishment. For a hotel to be recognised for its efforts means that BREEAM rated developments are more sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them, help protect natural resources and make for more attractive property investments.
