The Listel Hotel is a beautiful, art-filled boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Vancouver with a strong commitment to environmental protection and sustainability. In-line with the various efforts of The Listel’s Environment Matters eco-initiative and their operational efficiency initiatives, management at The Listel decided to move forward with a lighting retrofit.
A phased approach was taken for this project to minimize the disruption to their operations. Kambo helped The Listel to maximize the impact of their available budget by prioritizing the retrofits by return on investment. The high-traffic lobby areas, hallways, and galleries were completed first in order to immediately improve the presentation of the hotel common areas and generate a quick return on investment. Phase two included high efficiency LED lighting retrofits to the breezeway, the elevators, and the kitchen.
In total, The Listel realized $15,000 in annual savings and received $2,900 in BC Hydro rebates. In addition to the financial benefits, the lighting upgrades increased both indoor and outdoor light levels, improving both aesthetics and safety.
