Sustainability

is the new

standardfor

good design.

e n v i s i o n


Good design

can no longer include

strategies that

harm peopleor the

environment.

e n v i s i o n


Sustainability

considers:

Environmental impacts

Social responsibility

Economic realities

e n v i s i o n


Sustainable design is

smart design!

e n v i s i o n


And smart is SEXY!

e n v i s i o n


“The Myth”


Sustainable design

strategies can

be applied to

any project type.

e n v i s i o n


Some examples of

what green projects

can look like.

What makes a materialgreen?

e n v i s i o n


It is never just

one thing.

Green design is

holistic.

e n v i s i o n


Where is it made?

How long will it last?

How is it installed?

Can it be recycled?

How do I know you are telling the truth?

How is it disposed of?

What is it made of?

How is it maintained?

How is it made?

e n v i s i o n


Third Party Verification

is Important.

ISO 14001

Greenguard

Green Seal

Forest Stewardship Council

Cradle to Cradle

Scientific Certification Systems

Environmentally Preferable Products (EPP)

e n v i s i o n


What materials are

green in the eyes of

LEED?

e n v i s i o n


When selecting materials, LEED credits

are available in these areas:

Reuse and Waste Management

Recycled Content

Regionally Manufactured Materials

Regionally Extracted Materials

Rapidly Renewable Content

Certified Wood

Low-Emitting Adhesives

Low-Emitting Coatings

Low-Emitting Carpet

Low-Emitting Wood

e n v i s i o n


Some examples of rapidly renewable content:

Cork

Agriboard

Wool

Bamboo

Linoleum

Rubber

e n v i s i o n


Some examples of low-emitting materials:

Low or Zero VOC paint

Low VOC adhesives and sealants

Composite wood with no added urea formaldehyde

Carpets meeting the CRI Green Label Plus program

e n v i s i o n


The surprising recycled content of

common building components:

Structural Steel 95%

Sheet Steel 32%

Copper 44%

Flat rolled aluminum 80%

Glass 20%

Acoustic ceiling tile 23 - 87%

Fiberglass batt insulation 25%

e n v i s i o n


Why is recycled content important?

Resource conservation & energy savings:

Recycled steel requires only 26% of the energy

Recycled copper requires only 15% of the energy

Recycled aluminum requires only 5% of the energy

e n v i s i o n


What other options exist for

recycled content materials?

Synthetic Gypsum Board 99%

Carpet 38%

Ceramic Tile 50%

Composite Wood Panels 99%

Synthetic Stone Countertops 99%

e n v i s i o n


You need to be a good cook.

And you need to be a healthy cook.

e n v i s i o n


Which is better for you?

The right choice is easy. It just takes a little

discipline to implement.

e n v i s i o n


Think of green strategies in terms of

three groups:

Energy and resource savings

Human health and well being

What feels good

e n v i s i o n


Energy and resource savings:

Don’t allow sloppy construction

Increase insulation

Use better windows

Buy Energy Star appliances

Incorporate energy efficient HVAC systems

Use energy efficient lighting systems

Use low flush and low flow plumbing fixtures

Use locally manufactured materials

Locate near public transportation

e n v i s i o n


Human health and wellbeing:

These are largely indoor environmental quality

strategies that improve the lives of people by

creating healthy places to live and raise children.

e n v i s i o n


What feels good:

These strategies promote awareness of green

design even though their positive effects may

be incremental.

e n v i s i o n
