In one of its newest projects, Pan Pacific Hotels Group (PPHG) channeled considerable resources to equip PARKROYAL on Pickering with a network of solar cells to facilitate minimal energy usage. These technologically advanced solar cells will help power the lights that shine down on the hotel’s grand display of foliage, keeping the plants and flowers in optimal condition while preserving the surrounding natural environs. PPHG’s marked focus on advocating for biodiversity also serves as the driving force behind the company’s decision to harvest rainwater, greatly decreasing the amount of water PARKROYAL on Pickering will need to draw from Singapore’s river and reservoirs. Moreover, PPHG opted to place automatic sensors on lights and faucets throughout the hotel in an effort to cut down energy consumption to the highest possible degree.
For architectural firm WOHA’s commendable work on the hotel’s sustainable design and construction, PARKROYAL on Pickering received a Green Mark Platinum score from those responsible for assessing new environmentally conscious building projects in Singapore. A Green Mark Platinum score is the highest rating a structure can obtain, only awarded to projects like PARKROYAL on Pickering, which prove a fundamental commitment to eco-friendly business practices.
From hotel room terraces, guests at PARKROYAL on Pickering can gaze out on neighboring Hong Lim Park, an expanse of greenery where Singapore locals and tourists alike come to recreate in the fresh air on a daily basis. Despite the fact that many guests reside at the hotel for only a brief period of time, visitors can revel in the knowledge that their choice in hotels not only affords an unforgettable vacation. When guests stay at the PARKROYAL on Pickering, they make a positive contribution to preserving the natural beauty for which Singapore is known.
