Sustainable Hotel Design

Presentation 1

Site and Resource Analysis

Group 5

semester 1
Semester 1
  • Supply Technology
  • Demand Reduction
  • Matching Supply with Demand
project aims
Project Aims
  • Low energy, sustainable building
  • Develop energy systems
  • Create environment that is not compromised

Initial Design Proposal

  • Outdoor community
  • Relaxation
  • Sustainable
  • Low visual impact
  • Local Materials
  • Aesthetically pleasing
initial research
Initial Research
  • Site selection
    • Access
    • Topography
    • Geology
    • Visual impact
  • Water supply
  • Waste management
  • Site Analysis
    • Climate
    • Local resources
maximum and minimum temperatures
Maximum and Minimum Temperatures


Max 25.7 °C

Min 2.5 °C

Mean 13.6 °C


Max 19.8°C

Min -2.5 °C

Mean 9.2 °C


Max 11.4 °C

Min -3.9 °C

Mean 5.1 °C

solar intensity
Solar intensity

Direct solar intensity

  • Unpredictable
  • Peaks at 870W/m²K

Diffuse solar intensity

  • Sinusoidal
  • Average around 100W/m²K
passive solar design
Passive Solar Design
  • Passive Solar Heating in winter

(sunspaces, thermal mass)

  • Passive Solar Cooling in summer

(thermal mass, night ventilation)

wind speed and direction
Wind speed and direction

Prevailing wind direction SW

wind driven ventilation
Wind Driven Ventilation


  • Energy consumption up to £6000
  • CO2 emissions upto 100 tonnes

Reduce requirement for mechanical ventilation

Cross ventilation and stack effect also a possibility


Annual rainfall

  • 2277.8mm

Collection: roof, pipes, tank pumps.

Use: dishwasher, laundry, toilets, showers, etc

local resources
Local Resources


Utilisation from

nearby forests

NHFT promote

  • Woodchip for

cattle corals

  • Woodchip as fuel source for swimming pools
  • Development of log buildings and training in log building
local resources14
Local Resources
  • Local quarries
  • High quality stone
  • Used internally and externally


site selection criteria16
Site Selection Criteria
  • Topography
  • Site offers many views
  • Most important would be view of Loch and Quinaig (nearest mountian range).
site selection criteria19
Site Selection Criteria
  • Geology
  • Surrounding metamorphic and igneous rocks
  • Alluvial and glacial deposits at Loch side
  • Alluvial and glacial deposits cheaper for excavation
  • Test on Californian bearing ratio will be required (on granular and unbound sub soils)
site selection criteria20
Site Selection Criteria
  • Access
  • Fish farm there at present so roads to site C will be able to handle lorries

(local information from fish farm and hotel)

  • Virgin roads built with passing places, drainage and fencing can cost £250 thousand

(fife council)

  • Site C also has advantage of Jetty
site selection criteria21
Site Selection Criteria
  • Existing road conditions
site selection
Site Selection
  • Visual Impact
  • Site C- In amongst other buildings so visual impact will be reduced
  • A and B are virgin sites so will stand out
  • Especially B which is on an open embankment
site selection criteria23
Site Selection Criteria
  • Water access
  • Mains saturated in highlands

(highland free press)

  • Site B is closest to road so would be cheapest to connect to mains.
  • All sites are close to stream,
  • Site C has largest stream and deepest V valley. More likely for reservoir.
site selection24
Site Selection


  • We therefore choose site C as it offers the greatest flexibility and opportunities for further design.
solid waste
Solid Waste
  • Council collects bins twice weekly


  • Kerbside collection for paper/card
  • Local Availability of recycling banks
  • Possible other options from LA

Initial Conclusions


Future Projections

initial conclusions
Initial Conclusions
  • Site C
    • Better access
    • “easier” excavation
    • Less visual impact
    • greatest water source
targets for future
