Four Seasons Case Study – Jumeriah Dubai


The Four Seasons Hotel at Jumeirah Beach in Dubai, renowned for its luxury and exceptional service, aimed to enhance energy efficiency in its commercial kitchens. Committed to sustainability and operational excellence, the hotel installed Intelli-Hood’s Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV) system in six kitchens. This intelligent system optimizes kitchen ventilation by dynamically adjusting airflow based on cooking activity, leading to significant energy savings, improved indoor air quality, and reduced environmental impact.


The multi-kitchen installation at the Four Seasons Hotel was carefully planned to minimize disruption, with the team working during non-peak hours like late evenings and early mornings. This approach ensured minimal impact on guests and staff while completing the project efficiently. After installing Intelli-Hood’s DCKV controls, the hotel saw significant performance improvements. The annual utility cost dropped from $248,577 to $125,218, resulting in a 50% reduction and saving $123,359 annually.
