GRN Vision Principal, Dave Ray, worked with the Management team from the Renaissance Hotel to Certify the Hotel as a 3 Globes Green Globes Certified Building. In addition to receiving an 80 in Energy Star, “The Renaissance” was able to divert over 80% of the waste stream, use 30% less water than designed and they also implemented a ride-share program with the RTC. This project was under a short timeframe for certification and was completed in less than 60 days. With the Certification, the Renaissance was able to take advantage of the Nevada Governor’s Office Property Tax Abatement Program. After completion of the project Management has continued to improve using the sustainability plan. Being the only high end Hotel close to the Convention Center keeps the occupancy rate higher than average. This project was extremely satisfying for GRN Vision as it was the first Hotel project that GRN Vision Principals worked on in Las Vegas.
