The Renovation roadmap designed for Flamingo Oasis counts with 3 steps from lower to high performance actions.
The first renovation step covers a set of measures which represent a further step in the renovation strategy. Most of the renovation actions covered in this package, are focused more on improving the lighting systems, control standards, and DHW consumption savings. Other than the explicit mentioning to certain measures, this package should be understood as one which will lay the foundation for the future control of the hotel and its installations. It should consider the installation of smart meters in the new pieces of equipment, in the lighting, out of each AC circuit to the rooms, and common areas. The second renovation package is mainly focused on finishing the passive measures related to the glazed areas, improving the air tightness. This renovation package also covers the installation of PV technology in the roof, substituting the inefficient and rather obsolete solar thermal installation and integrating pvs on the balconies located on the south façade. The third and last renovation package aims to finish the different strategies started in the previous ones, meaning control strategy, passive measures, and renewable contribution. The goal is to try to make the hotel as close to the nZEB as possible, while addressing other normative-compliant aspects, health and wellbeing, for instance.
