fulfilling part of a national and global agenda
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

what characterises sustainable high performance buildings estates
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

Making the Necessary Step Changes: what the guidance supports
  • Addressing Existing Building Stock
  • Commissioning New Buildings
  • Working at the Estate-wide Level

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

commissioning new buildings
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

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

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
