the design project
The Design Project
  • Plan a town shopping center on a piece of land, while respecting sensitive areas, historic, cultural, or environmentally significant areas.
  • Describe best management practices used.
  • Calculate runoff and building costs.

  • Luxurious Vegetative Landscaping
historic site
Historic Site
  • Building was once a stone mill.
  • Now serves as a visitor’s center
  • Nature trails and tours
  • Bike Paths to town center
  • Golf Cart shuttles to town center
  • Parking Lot at historic site
best management practices
Best Management Practices
  • Constructed wetlands – southeast corner of the developed center

-Hydric soils on the land will be used to construct wetland at the southeast corner of the developed center. Wetland will be in size.

Wetland will reduce non point source pollution, and constitute our surface water storage.

    • Water efficient landscaping – using plant species that are drought resistant, native, non invasive and adaptive.

  • Constructed wetlands are marshes built to treat contaminated water and manage stormwater runoff. They have four key components:
    • Soil and drainage materials (such as pipes and gravel)
    • Water
    • Plants (both above and below the water)
    • Micro-organisms
  • Constructed wetlands purify thewater that flows through them. Compared to conventional treatment methods, they tend to be simple, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly.

28-55 gallon rain barrels at the end of each building disguised as rain gardens will hold 1,540 gallons of rain.

  • Commercial solar power systems are growing rapidly in popularity as corporate boards are realizing their attractive financial benefits. In addition to the current $3.50/watt PUC rebate on systems over 30 kilowatts, commercial entities can benefit from a 7.5% state tax credit, a 10% federal tax credit, and can depreciate the remaining value on a 5 year accelerated schedule.

  • Conservation Planning
    • Gather information on biodiversity
    • Assess extent to which biodiversity is represented
    • Identify additional areas for biodiverse protection

  • Smart Growth
    • Create walkable neighborhoods
    • Mixed land use
      • Encourage walkability
      • Compact building
    • Erosion control
    • Riparian Buffer – protect water quality by reducing forestry related outputs, shade, streambed stability

best management practices15
Best Management Practices
  • Using local and regional materials means that our materials will be transported from no more than 500 miles from our center.
  • We will use recycled building materials
  • Our shops will incorporate natural ventilation, which means that when the windows are open, our heating or cooling systems will automatically shut off and air will be circulated with fans throughout the shops.
  • Infiltration Islands in parking lot
best management practices during the construction process
Best Management Practices During the Construction Process
  • Construction sequencing – to minimize erosion of materials, we will disturb parts of the site at a time and manage runoff separately for each part. These areas will be stabilized with either gravel or vegetation (sodding)
  • Land Grading utilized to control surface runoff and soil erosion
best management practices during the construction process17
Best Management Practices during the construction process
  • Dust will be controlled by sprinkling
  • Geotextiles will reduce erosion on site
  • Riprap – large stone layer to protect soil from erosion
  • Temporary slope drains will be constructed to direct runoff without causing erosion
use of geotextiles
Use of Geotextiles

Geotextile material used with riprap allows water movement while preventing movement of soil particles.

Geotextile material provides separation, which preserves the integrity and extends the life of the road surface layer.

Geotextile material under the roadbed reinforces soft soil and preserves the road embankment.

Composite geotextile material allows water flow within the plane of the material, rather than across it, such as behind a retaining wall.

  • Energy Efficiency
  •      Energy-efficient lighting.
  •      Energy-efficient heating and/or cooling systems.
  •      Energy-efficient laundry.
  •      We produce our electricity using solar panels, wind or
  • water.
  •      Energy efficient windows.
  •      We lower the temperature of heating when not in
  • use.                               
  •      Installed insulation
  •      We use timer control where applicable.
  •      We use built in power saving devices.
