Helping the Environment
Many features have been incorporated into the design and operation of The Yeatman to help reduce its impact on the environment.
Solar panels are used for water heating and photovoltaic cells generate electricity in order to reduce consumption of mains power. Low energy lighting is installed throughout the building. Rain harvesting supplies water for sanitary use and garden irrigation. A reverse osmosis system produces purified drinking water from the mains supply, reducing emissions created by the transport of bottled water and the recycling of glass. Preference is given to local sources of produce in order to reduce the carbon footprint of The Yeatman's supplies.
Making up one of the few remaining significant areas of green vegetation in the central area of the city, The Yeatman's extensive gardens are managed as a refuge for rare and endangered local plant species and a haven for local and migratory birds. Care has been taken to preserve several mature trees already growing on the site.
The Yeatman has also been designed to harmonise with the city landscape, using materials and an architectural style which allow it to blend.
