1 LEED CERTIFICATION UWFox Communication Arts Center Jim Perry, CEO/Dean

2 Site Native vegetation Reduces need for fertilizers and irrigation Reduced maintenance Reduced use of fossil fuel Reduced use of chemicals Reduction in pollution

3 Site No Mow Grass Conserves fossil fuels by eliminating the need to cut the lawn. No mow varieties of fescue need little irrigation to sustain themselves and are perfect partners with the other drought tolerant native landscape species used on this project.

4 Site Water efficient landscaping Restricts use of potable water to establish plants. Once the trees and plants on this project are established, the native species require no irrigation. This saves thousands of gallons of fresh water every year.

5 Site Natural storm water filtration 100% of storm water is held on site to replenish aquifers and prevent erosion No new parking added Reduces the need for pavement and loss of biomass.

6 Materials High recycled content in materials Local/regional materials Construction waste management Low embodied energy materials

7 Indoor Environment Quality High indoor air quality Thermal comfort controls Dynamic thermal environment

8 Indoor Environment Quality Low-emitting material Curbs the release of harmful gasses in building materials (Volatile Organic Compounds). VOCs come from thousands of products (paints, lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning supplies, pesticides, adhesives, building materials, furnishings). Concentrations of many VOCs are up to 10x higher indoors.

9 Energy Designed for 30 to 35% more energy efficient than standard construction practices and regulations. High efficiency lighting system. CO2 sensors monitor occupancy and exchange air only as needed.

10 Energy The building will measure and monitor the performance of renewable energy system as well as a few other building utility performances.

11 On Site Renewable Energy (Pending) Photo voltaic panels to produce 6.3kW electricity. (Pending) Will produce enough power to light (63) 100 watt light bulbs. Solar power will offset buildings dependence on fossil fuel produced electricity.

12 On Site Renewable Energy Turbines in water faucets regenerate electricity that power the electric eyes that turn water on and off automatically.

13 Heat Recovery Unit (HRU) Uses separate blowers to move incoming fresh and outgoing stale air. Heats fresh air without mixing airstreams. Easier on mechanical systems. Uses less energy to heat outside air. 85% recovery of heat in outgoing airstream.

14 Heat Recovery Unit Heat-exchange core Thin aluminum passages. Air flows in/out in alternate passages. Heat transferred from warm stale air to cool air.

15 Water Water saving fixtures

16 Running the Numbers An American Self Portrait Chris Jordan 2 million plastic beverage bottles Photographic Arts used in the U.S. every 5 minutes.

17 Water Public access to filtered water to discourage use of bottled water.


19 Dual Flush Toilet Technology Larger trapway. Wash-down flushing design. No siphoning action. 40% reduction in water usage which exceeds LEED requirement by 10%. There are two ways to flush the toilets. The user determines how much water is used to flush the toilet.

20 Thermoplastic Polyolefin Roofing Membrane (TPO) Eliminates heat island effect on roofs. White in color. Reflects heat from the sun. Reduces cooling loads on building. Reduces heat discharged into atmosphere. Requires less maintenance.

21 1.TPO membrane; 5. Vapor insulation; 2.Fastening element for thermal insulation; 6. Corrugated roof deck; 3.Fastening element for TPO membrane; 7. Roofbeam. 4.Thermo insulation

22 Recycled Content Use less virgin or new material in manufacture of building materials. Recycled fly ash in concrete.

23 Green Construction 20% post-consumer and pre-consumer recycled materials.

24 Alternative Transportation Bike parking and accommodations for the two wheeled conveyances is located within 200 yards of the building entrance. Can house bikes for at least 5% of the building users.

25 Alternative Transportation Bike parking and accommodations for the two wheeled conveyances is located within 200 yards of the building entrance. Can house bikes for at least 5% of the building users.

26 Alternative Transportation Reserved parking promotes the use of low-emitting/fuel efficient vehicles. These stalls comprise 5% of the parking stalls and typically designate preferred parking.

27 Alternative Transportation Take the bus! The campus is on (2) active bus routes. Lessens dependence on fossil fuels. A sustainable practice that helps qualify for the Community Connectivity Credit.

28 Construction Waste Management Goal: Divert at least 75% construction waste from landfills (105,000 pounds). Typical construction produces 2.5 pounds of waste per square foot. Recycled scrap steel, wood, concrete, cardboard, paper, metals and glass.

29 Certified Sustainable Wood Makes up at least 50% of the total wood used on this project. Framing, flooring, wood doors and interior finishes needs to be certified in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Principals and Criteria for wood building components.

30 Certified Sustainable Wood Using FSC certified wood encourages environmentally responsible forest management and saves our virgin forests.

31 Regional Materials Brick, steel, concrete, glass, aluminum and wood have been mined, extracted, manufactured and shipped from production facilities within 500 miles of the project site. Make up at least 50% of the total construction materials on this project.

32 No Smoking Indoor air quality is preserved by adhering to environmental tobacco smoke control practices. There is no smoking within at least 20 feet of the entrances to this facility.

33 Pollution Prevention Protected against topsoil erosion. Controlled the amount of dust that became airborne ultimately affecting the air we breathe. Post-construction areas of the site were restored to their natural habitat having little or no impact on the local ecosystem.

34 Light Pollution Full cut-off dark sky compliant light fixture reduce light pollution. Can light parking lot without any up-light component that can illuminate the night sky. Also controls light spill over that can encroach on neighboring properties.

35 Green Roof (Installation Pending) Roof tops designed to accommodate weight of roof top gardens. Will beautify the roofs visible from inside the CAC and across campus.

36 Green Roof Planted trays of vegetation are perennial. Requires no irrigation besides annual rainfall.

37 Green Roof Plant material acts as a barrier to reflect heat in the summer. Insulates heat in the winter.

38 Green Roof Vegetated roofs reduce the heat island effect by not contributing to the amount of heat that enters the atmosphere.

39 Enhanced Refrigerant Management The buildings cooling systems do not contain compounds that contribute to ozone depletion and global warming. Only non-ozone depleting refrigerants are used in the cooling equipment in the CAC.

40 Human Health and Safety for Occupants Lighting and heating system control. A green cleaning program is used for maintenance and operations of the building.

41 Education The building and sustainable strategies will be used to educate the public and UWFox students about the value of building eco-effective solutions.
