Title: Greening the Built Environment Through Specs and Standards


1
Greening the Built Environment Through Specs and
Standards
  • The Environmentally Preferable Purchasing
    Programs Green Building Activities

Presented to EPAs Environmental Technology
Council December 1, 2005 Alison Kinn
Bennett Environmentally Preferable Purchasing
Program
2
Green building is defined asthe practice of
  • increasing the efficiency with which buildings
    and their sites use and harvest energy, water,
    and materials, and
  • protecting and restoring human health and the
    environment, through better siting, design,
    construction, operation, maintenance, and removal
    the complete building life cycle.

The Federal EPP Mandatewww.epa.gov/epp
  • Agencies shall
  • procure and use environmentally preferable
    products and services and
  • implement cost-effective procurement preference
    programs

  • have a lesser or reduced effect on human health
    and the environment...
  • considers impacts throughout the lifecycle
  • Executive Order 13101, September 16, 1998

Guide Objectives To help federal agencies meet
their project-specific environmental goals and
mandates including
  • EPAs Final Guidance on EPP
  • Greening of Government Executive Orders
  • EPAs Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (CPG)
  • EnergyStar and DOE Federal Energy Management
    Program (FEMP) Product Efficiency Recommendations
  • National Technology Transfer and Advancement
    Act/OMB A119
  • In addition,
  • US Green Building Councils LEEDtm Rating System
  • The Green Building Initiatives Green Globes
    Rating Tool
  • And other best practices as determined via
    industry and public comment

CSI Principles for Green Specifications
  • Integrate green attributes
  • Prescriptive or performance specs - be explicit
  • Health, safety and welfare issues
  • Rely on consensus standards to define green

SECTION 17010 Gizmos
SPECIFIER NOTE resource management Mining raw
materials for gizmos produces soil erosion,
pollutant runoff, and habitat loss. Adhesives for
gizmos are typically derived from petrochemicals.
Manufacturing of gizmos is considered energy
intensive however, there have been some energy
efficiency improvements in recent years. Gizmos
containing recycled glass are available. toxicity
/IEQ VOCs may be emitted from gizmo adhesives
during the curing process. performance Gizmos
are extremely durable and require little
maintenance. Performance is comparable for green
methods and standard methods.
14
SECTION 17010 GizmosPART 1 -- GENERAL 1.2
SUBMITTALS
SPECIFIER NOTE The 2002 Farm Bill - Section
9002, Federal Procurement Of Biobased Products,
requires each Federal Agency to develop a
procurement program which will assure that items
composed of biobased products will be purchased
to the maximum extent practicable and which is
consistent with applicable provisions of Federal
procurement law. USGBC-LEED v2.1 includes
credits for use of rapidly renewable materials,
which USGBC describes as plants harvested within
a ten-year cycle.
  • a. Indicate type of biobased material in product
    and biobased content.
  • b. Indicate relative dollar value of biobased
    content product to total dollar value of product
    included in project.

SECTION 17010 GizmosPART 2 PRODUCTS2.1
MATERIALS
SPECIFIER NOTE Under LEED v2.1, gizmo adhesives
are to comply with Californias South Coast Air
Quality Management District (SCAQMD) 1168
gizmo sealants are to comply with Bay Area Air
Quality Management District, reg.8, rule 51.
... Green Seal certified environmentally
preferable products are also available.
  • a. Toxicity/IEQ Comply with applicable
    regulations regarding toxic and hazardous
    materials, GS-36 for Commercial Adhesive, South
    Coast Air Quality Management District Rule 1168
    Bay Area AQMD Reg. 8, Rule 51 for containers
    larger than 16 oz and with California Air
    Resources Board (CARB) for containers 16 oz or
    less, and as specified.

16
SECTION 17010 GizmosPART 2 PRODUCTS2.1
MATERIALS
SPECIFIER NOTE US-EPA CPG recommends gizmos
fabricated from 20 percent post-consumer content
for steel and 100 percent post-consumer content
for PET plastic. LEED v2.2 requires 10
(post-consumer 1/2 post-industrial) for one
point and 20 (post-consumer 1/2
post-industrial) for two points. Green Globes US
also provides points for reused building
materials and components and for building
materials with recycled content. Verify with
manufacturer for product availability and
recycled content.
  • 1. Recycled Content
  • a. steel Minimum 20 xxxx percent
    post-consumer content.

17
SECTION 17010 GizmosPART 3 EXECUTION3.1
SITE ENVIRONMENTAL PROCEDURES
  • A. Indoor Air Quality
  • 1. Temporary ventilation Ventilate gizmos prior
    to installation. Remove from packaging and
    ventilate in a secure, dry, well-ventilated space
    free from strong contaminant sources and
    residues. Provide a temperature range of 60
    degrees F minimum to 90 degree F maximum
    continuously for minimum 72 hours.
  • B. Resource Management
  • 1. Verify gizmo is properly installed, connected,
    and adjusted. Verify that gizmo is operating as
    specified.
  • 2. Coordinate with manufacturer for maintenance
    agreement take-back program green lease of
    gizmo.
