Revised Executive Summary


Breadth Topics:

Analysis II utilizes a redesign of the lighting fixtures and control system to save energy in the guest rooms.  This will also assist in the LEED certification that the resort is trying to achieve.  The incorporation of compact florescent and LED lighting over incandescent lighting will greatly reduce the buildings energy footprint and lifecycle costs. 

Analysis III incorporates an irrigation system redesign.  I propose to add a rainwater collection tank, reorient the planting and piping system to provide better water efficiency.
