Dover House Resort is proud to announce that they have received a Green Lodging Designation from the State of Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection. They will also be applying for a LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
After renovating the rooms in 2011 the Dover House Resort now offers the chance to stay in a room that has been redone using sustainable products, that are not only good for the environment, but proven to be healthier for people.
With help and inspiration from Robyn Rocco, the CAM for Dover House, and owner of Eco-Spaces, LLC. the Resort installed rapidly replenished wood and laminate products approved by the FSC (forestry stewardship counsel) for flooring and furniture. Walls were done with non-toxic & low voc (volitaile organic compound) paints. Recycled and green certified fabrics that prevent offgassing to help with indoor air quality were applied to all the sofas, headboards, window treatments, and bedding. Water saving plumbing fixtures, and low wattage LED and compact flourescent lighting, energy star rated equipment, and AC controls w/ humidifiers in each room. And, we were able to reduce our carbon foot print by reusing prodcuts (creating less waste) by having 50% of the exisiting furniture refurbished by the Refinishing Touch.
