RESEARCH TOPIC Construction Activity Pollution
Prevention
  • There are many simple, inexpensive ways to reduce
    the amount of pollution produced at a
    construction site
  • Use of water or non-toxic chemicals to control
    dust
  • Limit the driving speed of construction vehicles.
  • Cover air conditioning units, vents and registers
    with plastic, to prevent particles from getting
    inside.
  • Wash vehicles off at construction site.

7
RESEARCH TOPIC Storm Water Management
WHAT? When it rains, storm water runoff that
isn't properly managed can flow over impervious
surfaces picking up pollutants along the way and
washing them into rivers and streams. Storm water
runoff can also cause flooding and erosion,
destroy habitat and contribute to combined sewer
overflows. WHY? Only 1 of Chicagos rainwater
is re-used. The other 99 is channeled back into
lakes, rivers and streams, full of contaminants.
27,200 gallons of water fall on a one-acre yard
during a one-inch rainfall. All of which can be
re-used.
8
RESEARCH TOPIC Storm Water Management
Rain Barrels Rain barrels are attached to
downspouts which collect storm water running off
of the roof.  An overflow system allows excess
water to be directed elsewhere.  The rainwater
collected in the barrel can be used for watering
your plants or garden during dry times of the
year and even to wash your car. Lawn and garden
watering can make up 40 percent of your household
water use during the summer months.
Pricing Aquascape (St. Charles, IL) 250 City of
Chicago Rain Barrel Program (Residency Required)
40 Installation Easy. Just a matter of
shortening the downspout from the gutters to flow
directly into the barrel through a downspout
adapter (15/Each).

RESEARCH TOPIC Storm Water Management
Rain Gardens A rain garden is a natural or dug
shallow depression designed to capture and soak
up storm water runoff from your roof or other
impervious areas around your home like driveways
and walkways. Rain gardens can reduce storm
water pollution by 30. Most effective with
native planting. Installation/Pricing Rain
gardens can be very easy to install. Set-up can
be as simple as pointing a downspout towards a
garden. If the lawn is sloped away from the
house, the rain garden can be up to 30 feet away
from the house. Pricing for a 210 square foot

RESEARCH TOPIC Sustainable Landscaping
  • WHAT?
  • Sustainable landscaping is a low-impact,
    low-maintenance and low-resource-use way to
    landscape.
  • WHY?
  • Benefits of sustainable landscaping are
  • Enhance and protect ecosystems and biodiversity
  • Improve air and water quality
  • Reduce solid waste
  • Conserve natural resources
  • -Reduce maintenance costs

11
RESEARCH TOPIC Sustainable Landscaping
Native Planting Native planting is a low cost
alternative to traditional landscaping. That uses
plants and grasses that are native or adaptable
to the location they are going to be used. They
typically have longer root structures, which work
better at absorbing materials in the soil. The
reduced maintenance benefits the environment, by
not using fertilizers or excess amounts of water.
Cost -Similar to traditional landscaping -Long
term savings as much as 1/5 Application -Absorb
area that usually goes to lawns -Which cuts down
maintenance and pollution
12
RESEARCH TOPIC Sustainable Landscaping
Trellis and Vines Having a trellis and vines on a
portion of the house that receives direct
sunlight will block the sunlight from heating up
the outside (and inside) of the house. In the
winter, when you need the sunlight for added
heat, the leaves are off which allows the light
to get through. These will be particularly
useful in the new development, since freshly
planted trees will need some time to produce
shade. Cost Minimal due to the fact that these
can be built onsite by volunteers. Maintenance
The homeowner will have to trim the vines from
time to time.
13
RESEARCH TOPIC Pervious Pavement
WHAT? Pervious pavement allows water to run
though the material to the soil, rather than
being fed through the storm drainage systems
which then runs into natural waterways. WHY?
-Reduces storm water runoff -Replenishes
groundwater -Requires less land to be set aside
for drainage -Reduces pollutants in
runoff -Reduces irrigation of area plantings
based on the seepage of rain into the sub soil
surfaces
14
RESEARCH TOPIC Pervious Pavement
Pervious Asphalt Recommended for streets due to
its high durability, reduced roadway noise,
non-slippery when wet, extended pavement life.
Disadvantages are that it needs to be vacuumed
to avoid clogging, and it only works when it is
installed correctly. Cost 20 More than
traditional asphalt. Cost can be offset by
reducing the amount of storm water
infrastructure, and not having to use as much
land for water run-offs. (Meyer Materials,
McHenry IL) Installation Uses the same technique
of application as traditional asphalt, but a
experienced contractor is a requirement for it to
work properly.
15
RESEARCH TOPIC Pervious Pavement
Walkways and Patios Instead of paying the extra
cost for pervious asphalt on short walkways or
patios, traditional materials can be used using
the right technique. Cost Comparable to
traditional methods, although it will require
more labor. -By using gravel and spacing the
tiles correctly, it will allow rainwater to run
down to the soil. -Using traditional materials
with a catch basin. By pitching the sidewalk or
driveway, and letting the water run off into
designated area (or garden) for drainage into the
soil.

21
RESEARCH TOPIC Alternative Framing Methods
  • SUMMARY
  • According to the US Department of Energy's Office
    of Building Technology, advanced framing
    techniques can save 500 in material costs per
    1200 square feet of house, shave 3 to 5 percent
    off of labor costs, and reduce annual heating and
    cooling costs by 5 percent .

22
RESEARCH TOPIC Alternative Framing Materials
  • 6.0 - CARPENTRY
  • Finger Jointed Studs
  • BENEFITS OF FINGER JOINTED STUDS
  • Finger Jointed Studs are approved by the IBC and
    IRC and are considered interchangeable with
    solid-sawn lumber in vertical applications.
  • Finger Jointed Studs can be made from shorter
    sections of wood including scrap and waste from
    other production activities.

23
RESEARCH TOPIC Alternative Framing Materials
  • SUMMARY
  • Finger Jointed Studs are a sustainable product
    that exceeds the vertical compression
    requirements of standard dimensional lumber.
  • Finger Jointed Studs that contain 3 or more
    joints per stud is increased stability.
  • The cost for Finger Jointed Studs can be slightly
    higher than conventional sawn dimensional lumber.
    Current price differences are approximately 3 to
    8 percent. This relates to an average increase
    of 75 to 150 dollars per 1,000 board feet of
    lumber.
  • Most finger jointed lumber is only approved for
    vertical applications making it necessary to
    order standard dimensional lumber for any cross
    bracing, rafters, joists, blocking and other
    horizontal and angular applications.

24
RESEARCH TOPIC Locally Sourced Materials

    practices of participating companies.
  • FSC lumber is a proven sustainable resource that
    ensures our forests will be able to produce
    products for future generations.

26
RESEARCH TOPIC Certified Green Building Products
  • SUMMARY
  • FSC Certification provides the opportunity to
    support the sustainable management of our nations
    forests. These benefits add a 10 to 30 cost
    premium compared to traditional lumber prices.
  • FSC lumber is locally available and may be in
    stock or may require lead times of 2 to 4 weeks
    on some orders.
