1 High Performance Building Requirements for Sustainability Portland Cement Association

2 Sustainability seeks higher performance  Product innovation  Building and site design  Societal behavior

3  Rating systems aren’t building code.  It can’t be sustainable if it isn’t durable. Bridging a Gap

4 High Performance Building Requirements for Sustainability Stephen S. Szoke, PE, LEED AP Director, Codes and Standards Portland Cement Association High Performance Buildings

5  Mandatory Language  Concise Criteria  Modifies the IBC  Functional Resilience HPBRS is Unique because:

6 More than the others…  Functional Resilience  Sites  Energy  Water  Materials  Indoor Environment

7

8 Functional resilience is fundamental to all other attributes  Safe  Secure  Healthy  Durable  Disaster resistant  Comfortable  Productive  Re-usable Critical attributes for an economically, societal, and environmentally balanced sustainable infrastructure

9 Re-Development with Re-Use
