Ventilation solution for Hotel Bristol, Sarajevo

The famous Sarajevo Hotel Bristol, whose imposing appearance is certainly one of the landmarks of the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, reopened its door one month ago after several years of disuse. The hotel, boasting four stars, was almost totally destroyed during the war in the former Yugoslavia. Later, the Saudi company Shiddi International decided to renovate it, thus further expanding its international hotel chain Kempinski Shaza. Hidria also participated in the renovation. It satisfied the required standards for ventilation in the kitchen of the eminent hotel with its ventilation ceilings.

The renovated Hotel Bristol opened its door on 6 April, which was certainly an extremely meaningful event, since this date is a special milestone in the history of the building. The hotel was also opened on this date when it was opened for the first time. Besides, on 6 April it was also forced to close its door, as the building was almost completely ruined during the war.

The renovation of one of the most luxurious Sarajevo hotels, offering a total of 186 rooms, also involved Hidria’s solutions. This time, Hidria’s experts took care of the ventilation of the hotel kitchen which, among other, prepares food for the guests of the hotel, and also provides gourmet delights for the restaurants Braserie and News, and Cafe Bristol.
The designing primarily followed the German guideline VDI 2052 and the standard DIN 18869. With the successful implementation of the project, Hotel Bristol obtained a technically perfected active ceiling, and became the second hotel in the Kempinski Shaza chain to boast this state-of-the-art solution in the field of ventilation, heating and cooling.
The active ceiling can show a nice appearance, but above all excels in its technical properties. The entire surface of the ceiling is thus active, both outflow and inflow of air. The ceiling also enables a constant, almost laminar inflow, without the feeling of draught. One of the advantages of the inbuilt active ceiling is also the effective homogenous waste air capture with a high level of filtration.
The costs of maintenance and cleaning of the ceiling is almost negligible. In addition, this solution also provides excellent fire safety. The active ceiling itself also includes inbuilt lighting, forming a whole together with other elements.
In the eminent Sarajevo Hotel Bristol, Hidria also took care that the guests can enjoy a truly good climate, as the building is equipped with 13 modern Hidria’s air handling units.
