InterContinental San Francisco Seeks LEED Certification

March 27, 2009 By: Mark Rogers


The InterContinental San Francisco has announced its intention to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification by early 2010. Working in conjunction with the U.S. Green Building Council, the organization that sets the standards and categories for LEED certification, the InterContinental San Francisco is applying for certification in the “existing build operations and maintenance” category and will be evaluated on every facet of the property from construction and design elements to the types of amenities used in hotel guestrooms.

The 550-room InterContinental San Francisco has committed itself to integrating as many sustainable practices as possible including mold-free drywall; floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the entire property that offer an abundance of natural light and reduce the need for electricity; double-paned windows to reduce UV exposure, noise and temperature fluctuation; motion sensors shutting down power in unoccupied guestrooms to conserve energy; and automatic sensors on sinks and toilets to conserve water.

“From working with local organic and sustainable farmers at our restaurant Luce to our comprehensive recycling program throughout the property, we are constantly striving to run our business as efficiently and responsibly as possible for both our guests and our community,” says InterContinental San Francisco General Manager Peter Koehler.
