PRODUCT DEFINITION

CONFIDENTIAL For use by Doubletree Hotels only

PRODUCT DEFINITION The Doubletree brand, which includes Doubletree Hotels, Suites, and Resorts, is a contemporary, firstclass, full service upscale hotel brand primarily located in major metropolitan areas and leisure destinations. Our uniquely designed properties afford travelers top-notch service, style and simplicity in settings as warm and friendly as the signature Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies we offer our guests at check-in. The Doubletree experience originates from the belief that formal, stuffy hotels don’t necessarily make business travelers any more productive or family vacations any more enjoyable. At Doubletree, we’re not like everyone else – we’re a breath of fresh air, an inviting hotel that understands its guests and actually is comfortable. Within the Doubletree brand, every development project is encouraged to embrace the local flavor and character of its respective market. We welcome innovation and contemporary ideas that support our business objectives and add distinctiveness to our brand. At or about the time a Licensee executes the Franchise Agreement, Doubletree will place Licensee in a Region as set forth below. The Region that Licensee is placed in is within the sole and absolute discretion of Doubletree. Licensee must comply with all standards applicable to that Region, which include those standards that are not limited by Region. In order to avoid any doubt, if the applicability of a standard or a section of a standard is limited to a specific Region and the Licensee has not been placed in that Region, then the standard or section, as the case may be, is not applicable to the hotel. Conversely, if the Licensee has been placed in that Region, the Licensee must comply with the standard or section.

27. 27-1.00 27-1.01

MECHANICAL ROOM GENERAL Air supply ventilation There shall be provision for a supply of air for combustion, for combustion products dilution where relevant, and for ventilation of the boiler house. The air supplies for boiler house ventilation shall be such that the maximum temperatures within the boiler house shall be as follows: • • • At floor level (or 100 mm above floor level): 25º C At mid-level (1.5 m above floor level): 32º C At ceiling level (or 100 mm below ceiling level): 40º C

The provision of combustion and ventilation air shall be achieved by one of the following four methods, as appropriate: A. Air shall be supplied via one or more suitably sized low-level openings and discharged via one or more smaller high-level openings, the motive force being provided by thermal effects. B. In the case of balanced compartment installation, air shall be supplied and discharged by means of a purpose-designed (or proprietary) flueing / ventilation system based solely on high-level permanent openings situated immediately adjacent to the flue outlet. C. Air shall be supplied by a fan to a low-level opening and discharged naturally via one or more high-level openings. D. Air shall be supplied by a fan to a low-level opening and discharged by means of a second fan at high-level opening. The fans shall be selected so as not to cause a negative pressure (relative to the outside atmosphere) developing in the boiler house. A system in which air is supplied naturally via a simple opening and extracted using a fan shall not be used since this could depressurize the boiler house and cause down flow in the flue. For the purposes of determining air supply requirements liquid and solid fuel burning appliances, installed in the same room or space as gas-fired boilers, shall be treated as gas-fired appliances of a similar type and rating. High and low level openings shall be located as high and as low, respectively, as is reasonably practicable. 27-1.02 Natural ventilation Where a natural ventilation system is used, there shall be provision for either: A. Permanent low and high level opening communicating directly with the outside air or, in the case of a balanced compartment installation, a purpose-designed (proprietary) flueing and ventilation system based solely on high level permanent openings situated immediately adjacent to the flue outlet; OR B. The openings shall be fitted with grilles of negligible resistances and shall be sited so that they cannot be easily blocked or flooded. Where both low and high level openings are used, the grilled shall have a total minimum free area as follows: 1. Low level (inlet): 540cm plus 4.5cm per kilowatt in excess of 60kW total rated input. 2. High level (outlet): 270cm plus 2.25cm per kilowatt in excess of 60kW rated

input. Ventilation grilles shall be designed to minimize high velocity airstreams in the boiler house. For exposed, i.e. free standing boiler houses where low and high level ventilation openings are provided, the openings shall be on at least two sides. For natural draught boilers installed in basement, underground or similarly sited boiler houses where communication with the outside air is possible only by means of high level openings, and it is not intended or possible to use a purpose designed ventilation system as described above, the inlet air shall be conducted to low level by means of ducting of cross-sectional area not less than the total free area of this inlet air opening. High and low level ventilation shall not be provided by means of single duct. Where a boiler, or boilers, is to be installed in a balanced compartment, the balanced compartment is a method of installing an appliance, or appliances, in a closed compartment and arranging the flueing and ventilation so that some of the advantages of a balanced-flue effect are achieved. 27-1.03 Mechanical Ventilation Minimum quantity of air required for combustion and boiler house ventilation shall be supplied at a minimum flow rate in accordance with the information below by means of a fan. Where the associated air extraction is also be means of a fan, the minimum flow rates of air supplies and extracted shall be in accordance with information below. Any fan installed for extraction purposes shall not cause a negative pressure (relative to the outside atmosphere) to develop in the boiler house. The inlet fan capacity shall be such as to provide the minimum air flow specified for combustion and ventilation. The extraction fan capacity shall provide the minimum ventilation rate specified. Where the associated ventilation discharge is provided my means of simple openings relying on thermal effects, the minimum free areas of the openings and any associated grille shall be as specified for natural ventilation. Such openings shall be at high level with the inlet air supplied at low level. All air inlet and extract fans shall be fitted with automatic controls causing safety shutdown or lockout of the boiler(s) in the event of the inlet or extract air flow failing. Basis for the requirements are: A. A heat release into the boiler house of 3% of the boiler(s) input B. A loss through the boiler house structure of 0.045kW / m of boiler house volume 3 (assuming a minimum volume if 20m per 350kW boiler input) C. That the sizes of ventilation openings given allow for an approximate rise in temperature in the boiler house of 28kW and are the minimum areas necessary to maintain good combustion and an acceptable atmosphere within a boiler house that contains no other heat emitting plant D. Where the conditions on A. or B. do not prevail, it is the responsibility of the installation engineer to ensure that the provision for ventilation is adequate to maintain the boiler house ambient temperature in accordance with the temperatures outlined above.

Energy usage: Energy costs are often difficult to predict accurately in the design phase of a project. operating.e. The LCCA should be performed early in the design process while there is still a chance to refine the design to ensure a reduction in lifecycle costs (LCC). Energy and Water Costs Operational expenses for energy. Water Costs: Water costs should be included similar to energy costs. This differential energy price escalation needs to be taken into account when estimating future energy costs.APPENDIX “B” CONFIDENTIAL For use by Doubletree Hotels only APPENDIX “B” Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) The purpose of an LCCA is to compare the overall costs of project alternatives and to select the design that ensures the facility will provide the lowest overall cost of ownership.

Very often the life cycle costs of an HVAC system over a 30-year period could be split into 50% energy cost. they must be made time-equivalent. It is recommended that a 20 year service period be used for comparison purposes. It is recommended that a 20-year study period be used for comparison. the LCC method converts them to present values (PV) by discounting them to a common point in time. This is the period over which operational costs and benefits are evaluated. A good starting point for estimating future replacement costs is to use their cost as of the base date. Service period: The service period begins when a system is taken into service.3% replacement cost. Replacement Costs The number and timing of capital replacements of building systems depend on the estimated life of the system and the length of the study period. The table below is a worksheet that can be used to arrive at the overall Life Cycle Cost. It is therefore especially important to use engineering judgment when estimating these costs. Cost Periods(s) Length of study period: The study period begins with the base date. The LCCA method will escalate base-year amounts to their future time of occurrence. 43% initial investment cost. there is great variation in these costs even for hotels of the same type and age.
