Qatar Green Build­ing Coun­cil hosted an event ti­tled “To­wards sus­tain­able ho­tels in Qatar” that brought to­gether var­i­ous ex­perts to dis­cuss a case study and bench­marks.

The event high­lighted re­sults of a com­pre­hen­sive In­door En­vi­ron­men­tal Qual­ity Case Study con­ducted by QGBC's Healthy Build­ing In­ter­est Group in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Moven­pick Ho­tel West Bay and a host of other part­ners. The sur­vey fo­cused on mea­sur­ing nu­mer­ous as­pects of in­door en­vi­ron­men­tal qual­ity in­clud­ing acous­tics, ac­ces­si­bil­ity, fur­ni­ture and ma­te­rial, house­keep­ing and in­door air qual­ity. Com­ment­ing on the launch of the case study, Iñigo Sa­trústegui, Head of QGBC's Healthy Build­ings In­ter­est Group and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Qual­ity Air Global in Qatar, said: “The case study is a ground- break­ing piece of re­search which will prove highly use­ful for in­door air qual­ity and sus­tain­abil­ity ex­perts in Qatar. We would like to ex­tend our spe­cial grat­i­tude to the Moven­pick Ho­tel West Bay for al­low­ing us to use their fa­cil­i­ties to con­duct this vi­tal study. In the near fu­ture, we will use this case study as a bench­mark to help other ho­tels, com­pa­nies and in­sti­tu­tions im­prove in­door en­vi­ron­men­tal qual­ity for their build­ings. QGBC wel­comes fur­ther col­lab­o­ra­tions to help im­prove stan­dards of in­door en­vi­ron­men­tal qual­ity within the built en­vi­ron­ment in Qatar through launch­ing re­search and case stud­ies.”
