  1. National Executive Forum on Public Property “Sustainable development”opportunities and implications Department of National Defence “Approach to Green Buildings” Viv Walsworth

  2. DND approach to green buildings • Realty: a sustainability opportunity • Policies & motivators • DND Unique challenges & considerations • DND Strategy for green building • Tools • How are we doing • Future direction

  3. realty: a target of opportunity for DND transition to sustainability • strategic context • life cycle cost savings • productivity& QOL enhancements • Reduced impacts, residual liabilities • Kyoto commitments • Demonstrate stewardship

  4. DND Approach to Green Buildings Policy and motivators

  5. Policy: Defence Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) • Minister’s commitment • policy fostering sustainability • 1997 realty objectives, targets, action plans • 2000 “integrating” environment into realty “decision-making” “processes & practices” • 2003 (planned): first “green building target” • Reporting: whole building environmental assessment

  6. Policy: Defence Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) • regulatory compliance • due diligence/ environmental risk management • policy integration/ dissemination/ implementation • stewardship/ acculturation • environmental Management System (EMS) • green procurement • issue targets, action plans

  7. THE GLOBE AND MAIL CANADA’S NATIONAL NEWSPAPER • FOUNDED 1844 • THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2003 Fraser slams military over poor SDS implementation by the muck raking journalist of your choice The Canadian Forces need to do a better job implementing their SDS policy in the delivery of the construction programme says the Auditor General Sheila Fraser. The DND responded to the auditor’s report… xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The fall of Saddam xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  8. DND Approach to Green Buildings Unique challenges and considerations

  9. DND realty sustainability challenges: • custodial “life cycle” asset management • unique DND realty context: environmental issues: range/ complexity/ risks asset age/ campus context capacity for re-capitalization diversity of occupancies spanning climatic regions limited knowledge/ capacity • Priority: existing buildings

  10. DND realty: sustainability challenges: • all pre-design, design & construction: contracted • facilities management: contracted/ alternate service delivery • monitoring & oversight of 3rd party providers • Render transparency/ measurability/ sustain documentation • transferability of lessons learned to portfolio

  11. DND Approach to green buildings Elements of Green Building Strategy

  12. DND Green Building Strategy • collaboratively developed • lessons learned • conceived as continuum • coordinated with SDS cycle/ updated annually • commercially available whole building assessment • integrate decision support tools/ modeling • synergies with other initiatives/ programs • foster knowledge transfer/ capacity building

  13. DND Green Building Strategy: 1. Existing buildings • Existing buildings: whole building assessments • for benchmarking • post occupancy evaluations • due diligence; • to assess/ improve operations • target remedial work for re-fit & renovations • lessons learned • Initiated: on-line assessments by base staff

  14. DND Green building Strategy2. existing buildings retrofit • energy performance contracts under FBI • utility data management • building energy performance indices (BEPI’s) for building archetypes • BEPI’s: feed into existing building assessments • On-line retrofit assessment tool planned

  15. DND Green Building Strategy:3. New building project delivery • adaptation of “Green Leaf” to support “environmental issues integration” into each stage of ISO 9001 “project delivery” process • partnership with PWGSC • (alpha) on-line version: “Green Globes for new buildings” (DND) Testing/ translation • support to SDS 2003 green building target

  16. DND Green Building Strategy 4. targeted issues/ savings Example: operating energy/ GHG reduction • strategic: : target 10% • operational savings: : estimate > 10% • retrofit existing buildings: 20% per EPC benchmark archetypes • New building min 25% less than MNECB: substantiation: CBIP modeling

  17. DND Green building approach Assessment & decision support TOOLS

  18. Tools: DND/ PWGSC environmental integration framework • Structured: whole building environmental assessment • Contextual: issues/ goalsrelevant to DND • Targeted: guidance/ indicators of content/ specificity targeted for “each” stage • Integrated: decision support/ modeling/ compliance • Transparent: Checklist/ indicators at “each” stage • Measurable: rating at major milestones • Flexible: generic framework with add-on modules

  19. Tools: DND/ PWGSC on-line Green Globes for new buildings • “DND/ PWGSC environmental issues integration framework” On-line • available alpha test version www.greenglobes.com/nbalpha/ DND version • DND variant identical to general practitioner except hotlinks to Federal regulations, policies • synergies with other Federal programs • seamless input to CBIP energy modeling • links: decision support tools

  20. Select User Download questionnaire

  21. Questionnaire Screen Other than entering the CBIP input information, most questions are “yes” or “no”.

  22. TOOLS: DECISION SUPPORT ATHENA DESIGN LCA MATERIALS

  23. Tools: Value-based selection including “sustainability” • Design-build: evaluated 50% price/ 50% “quality” • “quality” points include “Sustainability” • detailed CBIP energy simulation • min perf: 25% below MNECB • Price: annual energy cost x 10 + (capital cost) • encourage 10 year payback energy saving features • 15 sustainability points: LEED substantiation

  24. DND Approach to Green Building How are we doing?

  25. DND Occupancy ProfileInitial focus: exist/ new quarters

  26. CFB Toronto MFRCMilitary Family Resource Centre • project managed for DND by PWGSC Ontario region • applied integrated design approach • targeting natural light, indoor environment, operating energy savings • stack effect to promote natural ventilation • first DND project to achieve 4 “green leafs” eco-rating • Energy performance Richard Doucette PWGSC

  27. CFB HALIFAX QUARTER & MESSES

  28. CFB ESQUIMALT NAVAL OFFICER TRAINING CENTER

  29. DND Approach to Green Building The future

  30. DND 5 year Capital Plan: “Unit Lines” occupancy modules

  31. DND Green Globes development/ adaptations • occupancy & environmental issue specific add on’s • jurisdictional overlay “existing buildings” • Foster retrofit transition to Green building performance contracting (GBPC) from EPC • Retrofit version to support GBPC • Provincial/ municipal jurisdictional overlays?

  32. LEED CanadaFederal jurisdiction adaptation • statutes, regulations, policy & standards applicable to Federal jurisdiction • reconcile credits with Federal procurement policy & trade agreements • Rationalize regional/ climatic applicability • foster balanced approach • heritage, physical security, maintainability

  33. Conclusions • whole portfolio view/ each phase of activity • Acculturation- Process modification- strategy- best practices • Timely feedback/ lessons learned/ transferred • Capacity building • Hierarchy of tools/ same concepts/ different packaging • What works for you • Reward/ recognition
