9 What is Sustainable Housing? More than energy efficiency and reduced energy costs Method used to build properties that put less stress on our environmental resources while making the housing healthier and more economical for both renters and owners

10 Missouri Requirements for Sustainable Housing Beginning in 2011, MHDC required new rental housing developments be built to one of three green building rating systems: 1. NAHB 2. Enterprise Green Communities 3. LEED

11 Items addressed by the green building rating systems Energy Efficiency Better indoor air quality for residents Water conservation Sending less construction waste to landfills Protecting environmentally sensitive areas such as streams and rivers that are part of our water supply Transportation options for residents Reducing the frequency of storm water and sewer systems becoming overloaded Using recycled materials to reduce the rate landfills fill up

12 How the Program Works Rating systems for owners/developers to become certified or build to a certification level without getting a formal certificate Projects becomes certified by attaining a certain number of points from a predetermined scoring system 6-8 broad categories of interest such as water conservation, indoor environmental quality, and energy efficiency. Point levels required for certification here are the NAHB levels. Bronze 222 points, Silver 406 points, Gold 558 points, Emerald 697 points

13 NAHB building system Lot Design, Preparation, and Development Resource Efficiency Energy Efficiency Water Efficiency Indoor Environmental Quality Operation, Maintenance, and Building Owner Education

14 What are the benefits of Green Building? Healthier indoor air quality Increasing available landfill space Less stress on our water and sewer systems Less stress on our power grids Transportation options Protection of limited natural resources

15 What is the cost? Increased architectural fees Costs associated with additional insulation, energy star appliances, high efficiency windows and paint without VOC’s Third party verification that the HVAC system is performing to specifications Purchasing materials with recycled content Implementing a construction waste management system
