Community need

Community Need

Hillel House

  • Relevance to the project partner

    • What is the need that is being addressed?

      • Hillel House currently uses many of the same structures and appliances that were established with the house’s initial construction in 1950 and are in need of updating.

      • Our goal is to reduce electricity consumption by 15% and gas consumption by 20-30%

Boiler Green Initiative


Community need1

Community Need

Hillel House

  • Initial contact was made with the organization for the analysis of potentially establishing a green roof on the building.

  • Reducing building energy consumption will allow more funds to be directed to the students in the organization and improve the building.

Goals of the project

Goals of the Project

Hillel House

  • The BGI team will create a strategic plan to maximize energy savings with minimal capital input and implement small scale repairs and additions.

  • Our team will not be able to install large scale projects such as window replacement, electrical rewiring, or heating and cooling system changes.

Goals of the project1

Goals of the Project

Hillel House

  • What is the success criteria?

    • The success of this project will come from reducing energy costs for Hillel House at a rate that will justify the initial investment. We don’t want to spend more than $4000 on the rain garden.

Winterization

Winterization

  • Insulation

    • Keeps energy from escaping from the building and into the atmosphere, which keeps cost down.

  • Covering Windows with Plastic

    • Keeps energy from escaping. Similar to insulation.

  • Replacing Broken Panes

    • Replacing these panes will directly affect energy loss because we are fixing a hole in the wall.

Windows: Data

  • Best Window and Door had a Lower U-Factor (.28 versus .31 for Bee Window)

  • Similar SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient)

  • Number of Windows vs. Price

    • Bee Window: 71 Windows for $44,313.00

    • Best Window and Door: 82 Windows for $46,318.23

    • Best Window and Door has Lower Cost per Window ($564.86/Window)

Solar overview

Solar: Overview

Hillel House

  • Goals of Solar Energy

    • Reduce electricity use from grid

    • Creative use of passive solar to reduce heating/cooling needs

    • Extend the roof overhang on the building in order to block sun in summer

Boiler Green Initiative


Solar proposed solutions

Solar: Proposed Solutions

Hillel House

  • Passive solar

    • Use natural lighting to reduce interior lighting needs

    • Can be utilized while minimizing window surface area during replacement

Need for rain garden

Need for Rain Garden

  • Cuts down on water consumption

  • Reuse of rain water

  • Aesthetically appealing with the plants

  • Learning tool about wetlands for the community and Purdue by making a Rain Garden brochure


Rain garden overview

Rain Garden: Overview

  • A shallow constructed depression that is planted with deep-rooted native plants & grasses.

  • Easiest, most cost effective, and aesthetically pleasing thing that can be done to reduce the contribution to storm

    water pollution.

  • Eliminates the need for an irrigation system.

  • Provides the opportunity to fix the current

    walkway.
