  1. Achieving Sustainable Buildings and Estates: Making Use of Guidance from the Scottish Funding Council Courtney Peyton Managing Director, Thirdwave 6th May 2008 www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  2. Fulfilling Part of a National (and Global) Agenda 80% reduction in emissions by 2050 = 3%/pa or 15% by 2012 • Buildings contribute 50%+ emissions • Sullivan Report urging higher standards • New Built Environment Directorate • EPCs requirement in place and rolling • Buildings and Climate Change consultation due out in June University of Glasgow Page 16, High Performance Buildings 1. The Business Case for Universities and Colleges, March 2008 www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  3. Leadership from the SFC • Guidance for Sustainable Buildings & Estates • Removal of Ring Fencing (CapEx and Maintenance) • Commitment to CaSPr • Post Occupancy Study www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  4. What Characterises Sustainable High Performance Buildings & Estates? • Low energy and water consumption, and limited carbon footprints • Natural lighting and ventilation to provide striking, comfortable and healthy environments for users • High adaptability through smart layouts and modular structures • High use of renewable, non-toxic and recycled materials • Dramatically heightening the effective use of what we have / how we use it University of Dundee's Queen Mother Building Page 8, High Performance Buildings 1. The Business Case for Universities and Colleges, March 2008 www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  5. Making the Necessary Step Changes: what the guidance supports • Addressing Existing Building Stock • Commissioning New Buildings • Working at the Estate-wide Level www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  6. Addressing Existing Building Stock The need and opportunity to improve the legacy • Rising costs (energy, water, materials, labour) demand increased efficiencies • Mitigation Demand - Changeover rate in UK fabric not fast enough to focus solely on new build • Adaptation Demand - Our climate is changing and will continue to do so • Our buildings hold cultural value www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  7. Commissioning New Buildings Buildings for the Future • Designing for the climate we will inherit • New technologies, materials, concepts create opportunities for greater efficiencies and flexibility • Great advantages and canny specification tradeables in clever sustainable design (designing the demand side out of the equation) • Smart liaisons with own research teams University of Glasgow, Wolfson Building Page 23, High Performance Buildings 1. The Business Case for Universities and Colleges, March 2008 www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  8. Working at the Estate-wide Level Co-location and scale brings unique opportunities: • Team skills and learning grow from repeated work • Synergies between waste out and resources in • CHP & district heating schemes can be more efficient than stand-alone micro-renewable requirements • ‘Economy of Scale’ purchasing of sustainable materials / kit • Consistent responses from Estates breed confidence in staff, students, stakeholders www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  9. Buildings Shape a Financial Legacy too… • £1 x £5 x £200 rule • Risk • Cost rises • Liability • Flexibility & Adaptation • Health & Safety • Ability to trade • Reputation • Brand www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  10. Key Issues in Guidance • Layout & Flexibility • Biodiversity • Materials • Water • Pollution and Toxicity • Energy in Use and EPCs • Renewables • Waste & Recycling • Transport & Travel Plans University of Edinburgh, new Informatics Building www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  11. Timelines for Refurbishment and New Builds • Inception • Appraisal • Strategic Brief Development • Design & Design Team • Procurement • Tendering • Communication • Construction • Monitoring, Management & POEs High Performance Buildings 2. The Process of Delivery for Universities and Colleges, March 2008. Thirdwave, SUST, HEEPI www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  12. Links to High Performance Buildings Guidance • HPB guidance commissioned from Thirdwave by SUST: Lighthouse and HEEPI • UK-wide guidance • 2 volumes - Business Case & Delivery • Delivery organised around process • Useful checklists • Consistent and compatible w SFC • SFC directly involved in feedback of HPB work • Importance of SFC guidance high-lighted and discussed at HPB launch University of Hertfordshire, De Havilland Campus Page 23, High Performance Buildings 1. The Business Case for Universities and Colleges, March 2008 www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  13. University of Oxford • Strategy for Estates Directorate • New Biochemistry Laboratory • Ashmolean Museum Renovation www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470

  14. Thirdwave: Current Activity with Scottish Universities Helping Universities address: • Governance: Mission and Vision clarification • Corporate/Organisational Responsibility: Structure, Language, Strategy, Implementation • Carbon Management: Structure and Approach • Sustainable Development: Identification of appropriate context We are developing processes and protocols that identify organisational values and enable performance to focus on internal rater than external drivers www.thirdwave.org.uk 0131 625 1470
