7 Energy Use

8 Green Building Occupants Are Healthier & More Productive In the U.S., people spend on average 90% or more of their time indoors* Indoor pollutant levels may be 2 – 5 times higher than outdoor levels EPA ranks poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in the top 5 health risks** Costs to Americans estimated at: – $1.5 billion in medical bills – Tens of billions in lost productivity & absenteeism LEED certified project case studies illustrate % increased worker and student productivity * **

9 What are the rating systems? LEED (US) BREEAM (UK) CASBEE (Japan) DGNB (Germany) Green Star (Australia) IGBC/LEED (India)

10 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Created by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC) in 1998 Nationally recognized standard for Green Building Adapted for other countries – Canada – Australia – Hong Kong

11 LEED 2009 An analytical basis for point allocation. An extensible analytical foundation to address new issues and new green building strategies.

12 LEED Certification Scorecard Breakdown Total : 100 points Sources: “LEED-NC (V2.2) Point Breakdown”. siemon.com/us/white_paper

15 Recycled-content Regionally manufactured Recycle Construction & demolition waste Certified Wood

16 Low-emitting materials Ventilation Thermal comfort Daylight & views

17 Stormwater management & erosion control Ecosystem Outdoor microclimate Alternative transportation

18 Renewable energy Performance measurement & verification Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

19 UW School of Human Ecology LEED Gold UW Madison Education Building LEED Gold Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery LEED Gold

20 Wisconsin Institute for Discovery recycling 92 percent of construction-related debris solar panels to reduce energy used to heat the building glass for natural lighting automatic window shades to limit exposure to heat and cold high-performance terra cotta and recycled insulation on the exterior walls Installing chilled beams cooled by groundwater in warm areas

27 1. Plants will grow in boxes on a mechanical track that carries them from the top of the building to the bottom for harvesting 2. Mechanical arms below the track will gradually shift the boxes forward on each level 3. Leafy vegetables will be planted in the boxes in pumice to hold water. An irrigation line will carry water and nutrients to the roots.
