Introduction
Green Building is Popular
16
Accessibility /Universal Design
  • Where green design used to be a maturing idea
    within the design/construction industry
  • Awareness increasing / Slowly losing stigma
  • Recognize diversity of human abilities across the
    entire population -various ages, sizes, sensory
    abilities, language skills, and cognitive
    abilities.
  • Reality of our aging populations

17
Green Design /Universal Design
  • Completely separate concepts?
  • No obvious relationships?
  • The more we look at the requirements for
    sustainable design, the more convergences and
    overlaps we see with universal accessibility.
  • Largely unrealised opportunity to add value to
    their buildings

Redeveloping Brownfield Sites
  • Reusing existing buildings
  • Reducing expansion
  • Infrastructure costs
  • Urban intensification strategies
  • Locate people close existing amenities
  • Increase users for public transitIncrease
    walk-ability improving air quality and health
  • Increase urban safety

31
Redeveloping Brownfield Sites
  • Reduces walk/wheel distances
  • Seniors with stamina limitations
  • Younger children
  • People who use mobility aids
  • Persons carrying groceries/objects
  • Creative planning/grading strategies
  • Urban environment simple
  • Intuitive to use with minimal effort

Green Roofing
  • Replacing some of habitat lost to plants and
    animals by footprint of the building
  • Improving the air quality around a building
  • Reducing rain water run-off
  • Reducing need for rain water run-off and/or city
    infrastructure
  • Reducing roof summer heat build-up
  • Conserving energy with reduced air conditioning
    requirements

38
Green Roofing
  • Open to public-use
  • Controlled exterior environment at the building
  • Amenities close to home low physical effort
  • Raised beds
  • Flowers closer to all users
  • Deeper soil base for larger plants
  • Easier to maintain reducing potential for back
    strain
