  • Budget

15
Key directions messages from the last 12 months
  • Launch of the Building Futures policy
  • Educational rationale is driving facilities
    investment
  • Facilities investment will be in viable schools
  • Design is critically important in achieving
    Governments education goals and targets
  • Different types of school designs being invested
    in
  • Different procurement options for design services
    being explored

16
Key directions messages from the last 12 months
  • Ecological Sustainable Development is a key
    policy issue for governments
  • Water, energy consumption, thermal comfort,
    acoustics are being presented as capital issues
  • Greenstar Education Tool being released being
    piloted
  • School and Community partnerships in access to,
    and development of facilities is a clear policy
    direction of the Government
  • Departmental restructure with regional
    infrastructure staff reporting directly to
    central office

17
Key lessons from the last 12 months
  • Building Futures is providing an avenue for a
    fuller discussion on school projects
  • PC are rising to the challenge
  • innovative designs to match sophisticated
    pedagogical approaches
  • innovative approaches to ESD
  • capacity to match the increase in the capital
    program

18
Key lessons from the last 12 months
  • Concerns
  • The capacity of schools to understand the between
    link educational strategy with a facilities
    solution
  • Will the finished product drive teacher practice?
  • Are teachers students using the spaces provided
    as intended?
  • Capital program needs to consider more than just
    buildings
  • Transport
  • Community use (joint use agreements)

19
Key lessons from the last 12 months
  • long drawn out planning processes across a number
    of projects
  • where is the benefit?
  • does the plurality of design options really
    benefit the punter
  • Good design outcomes? What is the educational
    outcome to be achieved
  • Challenging schedules area at times asking for
    20 over area
  • A number issues being presented that are untested
    nor been modeled
  • have we the right incentives in the current fees
    and rates?
  • the higher incidence of special factors in
    scale and scope?
  • Get design right first then consider special
    factors

20
What is the Department doing to address some of
these concerns
  • The Building Futures Policy has been implemented
  • school projects will not proceed to capital
    planning without the educational rationale being
    examined and tested
  • School projects will have feasibility options
    explored before they are recommended to the
    Minister for planning
  • Design templates are being developed to ensure
    the school leadership and architects are informed
    by a range of educational design models
  • Web based materials
  • Virtual walk through models
  • Real life examples
  • Workshops seminars

21
  • Drafting ESD guidelines (Don Burns)
  • Review of Rates (Doug Harnetty)
  • Clarity
  • Transparency
  • Accountability
  • Development of performance indicators for the
    design and construction services
  • Exploring alternative ways of procuring design
    and construction services
  • Enhancing the post occupancy evaluation process

Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD)
Guidelines for School Design
  • Don Burns
  • Manager, School Infrastructure Branch

24
Government response to ESD
  • Our Environment Our Future Victorias
    environmental sustainability framework
  • As from 2007 all new offices leased or built by
    the Victorian Government need to meet a five-star
    Green Star Rating
  • Statements made by Government that Educational
    buildings will be designed using the latest
    Greenstar Rating Tools
  • Pressure on for DoE to commit to a 5 star rating

25
Department Framework for Sustainability
  • The Way Forward An Environmental Sustainability
    Strategy for the Department of Education and
    Training (November 2005)
  • Commits, amongst other things, to improving the
    environmental performance of school facilities
  • Supporting whole-school planning in education for
    a sustainable environment in schools through
    student learning.

26
ESD GUIDELINES OBJECTIVES
  • Establish a common language and methodology.
  • Align ESD performance with DoEs Building
    Futures policy and processes.
  • Encourage the creation of sustainable schools
    with teaching spaces that help improve learning
    outcomes.
  • Establish performance measures for energy, water
    and waste use.
  • Performance based with reference to the Green
    Star Education ESD design tool.
  • Work in Progress

27
BCA CLIMATIC ZONES Climate Zone refers to the 4
climate zones or bands designated in the BCA (see
BCA Climate Map of Victoria below). Each zone
represents an area with statistically similar
temperature, rain, sunshine and cloud cover
conditions. Subtle variations in these
conditions will influence areas of emphasis in
these Guidelines.
28
DoE Project Category Sheets
  • Guidelines divide projects by value and climate
    zone with project category sheets created for
    each.
  • Level 1 projects are projects over 5 million
    which are to be submitted for formal
    accreditation to GBCA
  • Level 2 projects include projects over 2 million
    which are not being submitted for formal
    accreditation
  • Level 3 projects 400,000 - 2million
  • Level 4 lt 400,000
  • Combining project levels with the 4 climate zones
    there are 16 possible project categories.

29
DoE Project Category Sheets (cont.)
  • Requirements and recommendations are set out in
    Project Category Sheets for each category.
  • Project Category Sheets provide a meeting and
    sign off schedule.
  • Guidelines also suggest design strategies
    appropriate to the climate band the project is
    located in.

30
DoE PROJECT CATEGORY
31
Enhancing Educational Outcomes
  • The Guidelines provide a functional overlay of
    both the BCA section J and the Green Star
    Education Rating Tool.
  • Credits that have been linked to enhanced
    educational outcomes have been highlighted with
    some mandated.
  • Credits Sheets set a recommended minimum Green
    Star score and identify any mandatory credits
    that must be achieved for each project.
  • Low compliance level projects are also provided
    with a structure for recommended ESD design
    initiatives.

32
DoE Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD)
Guidelines
  • Guidelines aim to focus on factors that lead to
    improved student performance including
  • Air movement and ventilation
  • Thermal comfort

DET ESD Guidelines
Vision Revising the Building Quality
Standards Handbook (BQSH) is one of the key
forward environmental sustainability strategies
that will be used to integrate sustainability
into the design Request for Tender Develop
a distinct ESD document for school buildings.
Request for Tender It is intended that the
revised BQSH will be an immediate step for Green
Star compliance Request for Tender.
Currently the BQSH language implies that
sustainability is desirable rather than
essentialno feedback loopno requirement to
demonstrate how designs meet the DETs
environmental sustainability strategy
incorporating the broader Government targets for
energy, water, and waste reduction Request for
Tender.
