Transport system: use of private cars Assumed frequency of car ownership: 0.8 car per household Parking garage located underground Does not create a visual barrier Incentive system to reduce the use of private cars
Transport system: encourage public transport Program goals Reduce automobile dependence by a voluntary system Change in consumption habits for some of the journeys Take advantage of available facilities: cycling, walking, bus system
Implementation process Odometer readings in each vehicle Statistics: 40km per day; ca. 1200 km per month Reduction of 33% (800 km per month) results in an incentive Suggested incentives: discount on bus pass or at cycling shop Monitoring Occasional audits Should not encourage people to get a car in order to get the discount Transport system: encourage public transport
Transport system: buses Proposition: Use a part of the bus network; part of Uppsala bus fleet fuelled with biogas. Re-route the buses travelling on line 5 Insert one or two stops in the project area Frequency: around 1 bus every 10 or 20 minutes Connection to city center: less than 5 minutes
Transport system: pedestrian and bicycle paths Planned pedestrian network through the entire area Possible system of bridges between buildings: Good communication Stronger sense of community Bridge leading to the sports field Off-road bicycle path next to the river front for safety and better environment
Grey Water Reuse Water is one of the most valuable nature resources due to its necessity for daily life. Grey water (showers, sinks, washing and general use, everything except toilets) recycling is one of many developed technologies to conserve or reuse the household wastewater. Aim to apply a greywater reuse system in sustainable water management for sustainable housing, which have significant advantages according to ecological as well as to economical aspects. Greywater reuse should fulfill four criteria: hygienic safety, aesthetics, environmental tolerance, and technical and economical feasibility. The system features are storage tank, filtering units, plumbing units, a pipe to send water to the garden, and the garden being watered
Heating and Electricity Awareness is most important! District heating system-renewably fueled Produce electricty with solar cells –Total temand ~570 MWh/year –Optimum production 204 MWh/year –Up to 35% renewable energy!
Solid Waste Management Trash Pre-Sort According to current municipal policy Up to 85% of Sweden’s waste is recycled Goal of 90% with help of informative packet Compost High capacity system for household materials ’Compost Hosts’ to help tend systems and inform new residents of do’s and don’ts.
Other Important Considerations Tenure has an impact on sustainible housing Soil contamination/other impacts ’Island’ concept; flexibility in long-range Mixture of open and closed natural space Sustainibility with respect to social, natural and built environments
