1 National Executive Forum on Public Property “Sustainable development” opportunities and implications Department of National Defence “Approach to Green Buildings” Viv Walsworth

2 DND approach to green buildings Realty: a sustainability opportunity Policies & motivators DND Unique challenges & considerations DND Strategy for green building Tools How are we doing Future direction

3 realty: a target of opportunity for DND transition to sustainability strategic context life cycle cost savings productivity& QOL enhancements Reduced impacts, residual liabilities Kyoto commitments Demonstrate stewardship

4 DND Approach to Green Buildings Policy and motivators

5 Policy: Defence Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) Minister’s commitment policy fostering sustainability 1997 realty objectives, targets, action plans 2000 “integrating” environment into realty “decision-making” “processes & practices” 2003 (planned): first “green building target” Reporting: whole building environmental assessment

6 Policy: Defence Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) regulatory compliance due diligence/ environmental risk management policy integration/ dissemination/ implementation stewardship/ acculturation environmental Management System (EMS) green procurement issue targets, action plans

7 THE GLOBE AND MAIL CANADA’S NATIONAL NEWSPAPER FOUNDED 1844 THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2003 Fraser slams military over poor SDS implementation by the muck raking journalist of your choice The Canadian Forces need to do a better job implementing their SDS policy in the delivery of the construction programme says the Auditor General Sheila Fraser.

8 DND Approach to Green Buildings Unique challenges and considerations

9 DND realty sustainability challenges: custodial “life cycle” asset management unique DND realty context: environmental issues: range/ complexity/ risks asset age/ campus context capacity for re-capitalization diversity of occupancies spanning climatic regions limited knowledge/ capacity Priority: existing buildings

10 DND realty: sustainability challenges: all pre-design, design & construction: contracted facilities management: contracted/ alternate service delivery monitoring & oversight of 3 rd party providers Render transparency/ measurability/ sustain documentation transferability of lessons learned to portfolio

11 DND Approach to green buildings Elements of Green Building Strategy

12 DND Green Building Strategy collaboratively developed lessons learned conceived as continuum coordinated with SDS cycle/ updated annually commercially available whole building assessment integrate decision support tools/ modeling synergies with other initiatives/ programs foster knowledge transfer/ capacity building

13 DND Green Building Strategy: 1. Existing buildings Existing buildings: whole building assessments –for benchmarking –post occupancy evaluations –due diligence; –to assess/ improve operations –target remedial work for re-fit & renovations –lessons learned Initiated: on-line assessments by base staff

14 DND Green building Strategy 2. existing buildings retrofit energy performance contracts under FBI utility data management building energy performance indices (BEPI’s) for building archetypes BEPI’s: feed into existing building assessments On-line retrofit assessment tool planned

15 DND Green Building Strategy: 3. New building project delivery adaptation of “Green Leaf” to support “environmental issues integration” into each stage of ISO 9001 “project delivery” process partnership with PWGSC (alpha) on-line version: “Green Globes for new buildings” (DND) Testing/ translation support to SDS 2003 green building target

16 DND Green Building Strategy 4. targeted issues/ savings Example: operating energy/ GHG reduction strategic: : target 10% operational savings: : estimate > 10% retrofit existing buildings: 20% per EPC benchmark archetypes New building min 25% less than MNECB: substantiation: CBIP modeling

17 DND Green building approach Assessment & decision support TOOLS

18 Tools: DND/ PWGSC environmental integration framework Structured: whole building environmental assessment Contextual: issues/ goals relevant to DND Targeted: guidance/ indicators of content/ specificity targeted for “each” stage Integrated: decision support/ modeling/ compliance Transparent: Checklist/ indicators at “each” stage Measurable : rating at major milestones Flexible: generic framework with add-on modules

19 Tools: DND/ PWGSC on-line Green Globes for new buildings “DND/ PWGSC environmental issues integration framework” On-line available alpha test version www.greenglobes.com/nbalpha/ DND version www.greenglobes.com/nbalpha/ DND variant identical to general practitioner except hotlinks to Federal regulations, policies synergies with other Federal programs seamless input to CBIP energy modeling links: decision support tools

23 TOOLS: DECISION SUPPORT ATHENA  DESIGN LCA MATERIALS

24 Tools: Value-based selection including “sustainability” Design-build: evaluated 50% price/ 50% “quality” “quality” points include “Sustainability” detailed CBIP energy simulation min perf: 25% below MNECB Price: annual energy cost x 10 + (capital cost) encourage 10 year payback energy saving features 15 sustainability points: LEED substantiation

25 DND Approach to Green Building How are we doing?

26 DND Occupancy Profile Initial focus: exist/ new quarters

28 CFB Toronto MFRC Military Family Resource Centre project managed for DND by PWGSC Ontario region applied integrated design approach targeting natural light, indoor environment, operating energy savings stack effect to promote natural ventilation first DND project to achieve 4 “green leafs” eco-rating Energy performance Richard Doucette PWGSC

29 CFB HALIFAX QUARTER & MESSES

30 CFB ESQUIMALT NAVAL OFFICER TRAINING CENTER

31 DND Approach to Green Building The future

32 DND 5 year Capital Plan: “Unit Lines” occupancy modules

33 DND Green Globes development/ adaptations occupancy & environmental issue specific add on’s jurisdictional overlay “existing buildings” Foster retrofit transition to Green building performance contracting (GBPC) from EPC Retrofit version to support GBPC Provincial/ municipal jurisdictional overlays?

34 LEED Canada Federal jurisdiction adaptation statutes, regulations, policy & standards applicable to Federal jurisdiction reconcile credits with Federal procurement policy & trade agreements Rationalize regional/ climatic applicability foster balanced approach heritage, physical security, maintainability

35 Conclusions whole portfolio view/ each phase of activity Acculturation- Process modification- strategy- best practices Timely feedback/ lessons learned/ transferred Capacity building Hierarchy of tools/ same concepts/ different packaging What works for you Reward/ recognition
