Chattanooga Hotel Earns Silver Level LEED(R) Certification

SpringHill Suites Chattanooga Downtown/Cameron Harbor Recognized for Green Efforts

CHATTANOOGA, TN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- A business' commitment to the environment goes beyond recycling and low-flow showerheads. While this Chattanooga hotel participates in a towel/linen reuse program, recycling program and the Global Soap Project, the feather in its eco-friendly cap came on October 30, 2012, when it was awarded Silver Level LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.

SpringHill Suites Chattanooga Downtown/Cameron Harbor, owned by 3H Group Hotels, is the first and only Chattanooga green lodging to hold this certification, and while the recognition is only recent, the goal was set at the start of development in 2010. "LEED® certification is an internationally recognized achievement that takes a team effort from beginning to end," Jason Rothenberg, project director for 3H Group Hotels, says.

This hotel in downtown Chattanooga was constructed with the five main LEED® pillars in mind:

Sustainable sites credits, which encourage strategies that minimize the impact on ecosystems and water resources

Water efficiency credits that promote smarter use of water, inside and out, to reduce potable water consumption

Energy and atmosphere credits that promote better building-energy performance through innovative strategies

Materials and resources credits, which encourage using sustainable building materials and reducing waste

Indoor environmental quality credits, which promote better indoor air quality and access to daylight and views

Participation in the LEED® program is voluntary, and projects must earn a minimum of 40 points on a 110-point LEED® rating system scale to become certified.

"Obtaining Silver LEED® certification is a wonderful achievement and reflects our commitment to the environment," Jake Honegger, general manager of SpringHill Suites Chattanooga Downtown/Cameron Harbor, says. "Guests appreciate the sustainable practices that the hotel has implemented."

Guests also appreciate the thoughtful amenities at this riverfront hotel, including a complimentary hot breakfast buffet, complimentary in-room and property-wide high-speed Internet access, an indoor pool and whirlpool, 24-hour business center, fully equipped fitness center and Waterfront Bar serving your favorite cocktails. Spacious, stylish suites feature fresh, inspiring decor and amenities including a pullout sofa bed, microwave, mini-fridge and large desk with ergonomic chair.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong.

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production?

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
