USGBC's Sustainable Suite Winner Showcased at HD Expo
Conceptualized by WATG, Haptik juxtaposes sustainability and luxury.

Attendees at the 2010 Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference (HD Expo), May 19-21 at Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, had a chance to explore the winning concept of the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) inaugural Sustainable Suite Design Competition. The Haptik suite, conceptualized by WATG, juxtaposes sustainability and luxury without sacrificing either ideal.

Haptik’s green initiatives include an "all-off" switch to ensure lights are automatically turnedoff based on passive infrared sensors (PIS) and room conditioning equipped by a four-pipe horizontal fan-coil system; a Trombe wall in the shower that captures solar heat to warm the water; and a gray water irrigation system that filters and recycles shower water to an outdoor herb garden, which in turn scents the room.

Design submissions were judged on three overarching categories: design elements (water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality), education (guestroom attributes and guest practices), and overall design (integrated design approach, originality and innovation, general aesthetic, and financial feasibility).

The Sustainable Suite came to life on the show floor of HD Expo thanks to the following partners:

Partner Organizations: U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and NEWH—the Hospitality Industry Network

Sponsors: Hospitality Design (HD) magazine, Purchasing Management International, Perini Building Company, KHS&S Contractors, Kuehne + Nagel, Fisk, Southwest Carpenters Training Fund
