Intercontinental Hayman Island Resort

Project overview

Devastated by a tropical cyclone in 2017, Intercontinental Hayman Island Resort has been rebuilt. With our help, the luxury resort is improving its sustainability and resilience and becoming more energy efficient.

  • in-room technology including lights automatically turning off and blinds closing when a guest exists a room to keep the rooms cool and conserve energy
  • a unique glass-to-sand crusher to reduce waste transportation to the mainland and maintain the resort pathways with recycled glass bottles
  • kitchen waste composters convert organic waste to liquid for maintaining plants and lawns throughout the island
  • integrated building management system to identify efficiencies.

These green technologies will reduce energy consumption, carbon emissions and waste to landfill.

Works are also underway to ensure:

  • sustainable approaches to safeguarding the surrounding environment
  • enhanced protection with a reconstructed seawall so the resort can continue to operate even after a natural disaster.

Benefits

  • Reduce 300 tonnes of CO2 per annum

  • Remove 100,000 kilograms per annum of waste to landfill

  • Increased resilience to natural disasters
