Title: Green Building for the West Bank


1
Green Building for the West Bank
  • Prepared by Eric Pallant and Kelly Boulton
  • Allegheny College
  • February 24 and 25

2
Principles of Green Building
  • "meeting the needs of the present without
    compromising the ability of future generations to
    meet their own needs." Brundtland Commission
    definition of sustainability
  • 1987 Report of the World Commission on
    Environment and Development

3
What are the some important green features for
any building?
  • Comfort
  • Air
  • Light
  • Sound (quiet)
  • Sustainability
  • Teaching potential

4
Applying sustainability to buildings
  • Buildings use energy and water
  • When they are being used
  • When the materials to build them are being
    produced Materials are being transported
  • When they reach the end of their useful lives

5
In the U.S. LEED guides green building
  • LEED Leadership in Energy and Environmental
    Design
  • Includes a point system that must be approved by
    an independent certifying body.
  • Each point must be documented with hard facts.

6
LEED has six major categories
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design

7
Sustainable Sites
  • Construction Activity Pollution Prevention
  • Site Selection
  • Development Density and Community Connectivity
  • Brownfield Redevelopment
  • Alternative Transportation
  • Site Development
  • Storm Water Design
  • Heat Island Effect
  • Light Pollution Reduction

8
Sustainable Sites Site Development
  • Protect and restore habitat

LEED categories
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design

11
Water Efficiency
  • Water Efficient Landscaping
  • Innovative waste water technologies
  • Water use reduction

12
Water Efficiency Innovative Waste Water
Technology
  • Rainwater capture
  • Gray water reuse
  • Living Machines

13
Water Efficiency Water Use Reduction
  • Waterless urinals
  • Low-flow fixtures
  • Dual flush toilets
  • Composting toilets

14
LEED categories
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design

15
Energy and Atmosphere
  • Optimize Energy Performance
  • Onsite Renewable Energy
  • Enhanced Commissioning
  • Enhanced Refrigerant Management
  • Measurement and Verification
  • Green Power

16
Energy and Atmosphere Optimize Energy
Performance
  • Ground source heating and cooling
  • Pay attention to efficiency of air handling
  • Efficient bulbs
  • Daylighting sensors
  • Motion sensors
  • Task lighting

17
Energy and Atmosphere Onsite Renewable Energy
  • Solar hot water
  • Photovoltaics
  • Wind

18
LEED categories
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design

19
Materials and Resources Embodied Energy
  • Construction materials can consume large amounts
    of energy (and water) during their manufacture
    and transport
  • This generates CO2 and air pollutants

20
Materials and Resources Embodied Energy
  • Using wood in West Bank might require
    transportation from far away

21
Materials and Resources Embodied Energy
  • Steel requires large amounts of energy to
    manufacture and transport

22
Materials and Resources
  • Storage and collection of recyclables
  • Construction waste management
  • Materials reuse
  • Recycled content
  • Regional materials
  • Rapidly renewable materials
  • Certified wood

23
Materials and Resources Examples of sustainable
materials
  • Stone
  • Agrifiber
  • Pressed paper
  • Bamboo
  • Recycled plastic benches
  • Recycled gypsum wallboard
  • Recycled carpet

24
Materials and Resources Examples of sustainable
materials
  • Mud

25
Materials and Resources Examples of sustainable
materials
  • Mud
  • Straw
  • Stone

26
Materials and Resources Examples of sustainable
materials
  • Stone
  • Mud
  • Agrifiber
  • Pressed paper
  • Bamboo
  • Recycled plastic benches
  • Recycled gypsum wallboard
  • Recycled carpet

Sorghum Stalks
Recycled paper
Bamboo
Sunflower hulls
27
LEED categories
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design

28
Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Minimum indoor air quality performance
  • Environmental tobacco smoke control
  • Outdoor air delivery monitoring
  • Increased ventilation
  • Construction indoor air quality management plan
  • Low emitting materials
  • Indoor chemical pollutant source control
  • Controllability of systems
  • Thermal comfort
  • Daylight and views

29
Indoor Environmental Quality Low Emitting
Materials
  • Carpets
  • Paints and varnishes
  • Adhesives
  • Sealants
  • Composite wood and agrifiber products

Select Products that do not emit Volatile Organic
Compounds
30
Indoor Environmental Quality Low Emitting
Materials
  • Select carpeting made from recycled materials
  • Renewable materials - WOOL

31
Indoor Environmental Quality Daylight and Views
  • Maximize interior daylighting
  • Exterior and interior permanent shading devices -
    lightshelves
  • High performance window glazing
  • Daylight sensors to control electric lighting
  • Solar tubes
  • Maximize views to outdoors

32
LEED categories
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design

33
Innovation in Design Integrated Design
  • Water for plants can recharge aquifers
  • Capture sink water to grow plants that shade
    building and reduce cooling needs
  • Capture rainwater to flush toilets
  • Water efficiency minimizes need to use potable
    water for toilets
