Where Ramboll stands apart from competitors is that we have a dedicated hotel sector group, who look at best practice and the latest technology integration.
The hotel and resorts specialists
Our hotel and resorts specialists comprise representatives from multidisciplinary engineering departments including mechanical and electrical services engineers, civil and structural engineers, fire engineers, acoustic consultants and environmental engineers. This gives Ramboll the experience needed to design memorable buildings and efficient infrastructure for the travel, leisure and tourist industries.
Integration of ground-breaking technologies
Ground-Breaking Renewable Technologies have played an important role in the energy solutions for hotel developments for over 30 years. In almost all instances, hotels operate 24/7 and this leads hotels to being one of the highest commercial energy consumers. The continuous use nature of a hotel works very effectively with Renewables as they can function to their full operating efficiency.
Significant operating cost savings can be realised through the appropriate selection of Renewable Technologies. Ramboll engineers have designed some very innovative solutions to minimising hotel running costs, and have been responsible for the design of the UK's largest ground source heat pump solution on any hotel in the UK.
Understanding the guest experience
It is imperative that the guest experience is fully understood and that their journey throughout the duration of a guest's stay is successfully catered for from the point of placing the booking through to check out and departure. This understanding is particularly relevant to mechanical and electrical services design solutions, to ensure guest comfort is achieved.
The environmental conditions experienced by guests as they circulate around the hotel facilities need to be carefully controlled and monitored to ensure temperature, humidity, noise and lighting levels provide comfortable and appropriate ambiances relevant to the location within the building.
Guests spending relatively short periods of time within a hotel do not want to be confronted by complex control systems to operate lights, TV, blinds etc. Hence it is the duty of the building services designer to ensure simplicity of use. Hot water should be instant and plentiful, and the acoustic qualities of the building fabric and services systems should ensure a peaceful night’s rest.
