Presentation Transcript
materials
Materials
  • Using more sustainable materials, less materials and materials in the right constructions
  • Materials have their own impacts associated with them
    • Environmental impacts
      • Extraction/production
    • Visual/thermal/acoustic impacts as well
    • Also create the physical space that occupants experience
materials1
Materials
  • Embodied energy/carbon can be a measure used
    • Measures environmental impact based on extraction, processing, manufacturing, and distribution
  • Over the life of a building this may not be the most important consideration
    • Thermal/structural/acoustic properties
  • Lifecycle of the material
    • Recyclable, biodegradable, made from recycled material or rapidly renewable materials
energy systems
Energy Systems
  • Produce, use, convert, and store energy for the building
    • Efficient and effective
  • Systems for thermal and visual comfort ALL use energy is some form
  • Energy production and use is the primary driver of greenhouse gas emissions and global warming
    • Also one of the biggest costs throughout the life of the building
energy
Energy
  • Energy efficient
    • Right technologies for your building
    • Right design strategies for your building
    • Can be measured by kilowatt hours per year, per unit area (energy use intensity or EUI)
  • Get the most out of the system or technology you use
design
Design
  • Energy system design should be looked at as the whole system
  • Depending on needs/location
    • On site photovoltaic
    • Wind
    • Grid electricity
    • Natural gas
  • Architect defines energy “demand” and the engineer defines how to supply

H2O
  • Inside the building
    • Drinking
    • Cleaning
    • Sanitation
  • Outside
    • Landscaping
    • Wastewater
    • runoff
slide8
H2O
  • Fundamental to survival and human health
  • Also in keep systems in balance
  • Measured in both quantity and quality
    • Flowrate of fixtures and capacity of tanks can measure quantity
    • Quality can be measured in a # of ways, different qualities for different uses
    • pH indicators, dissolved or suspended solids and turbidity
slide9
H2O
  • Use the right kind of water for the right uses
  • Reuse as much as possible
  • Economize use
    • High efficiency fixtures
  • Capturing rainwater
  • Plumbing systems that separate potable water, grey water and blackwater
  • Purify water on site with living machines or advanced septic systems
