1 P3Architecture and Sustainable Design Sustainable Design Strategies

2 What is Sustainable Design? Sustainable design is an approach which meets our current needs without jeopardizing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs Sustainable design is an approach which meets our current needs without jeopardizing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs It minimizes environmental impacts, it minimizes importation of goods and energy, and it minimizes the generation of waste. It minimizes environmental impacts, it minimizes importation of goods and energy, and it minimizes the generation of waste. Sustainable design demands an understanding of our place within the ecology of our planet, and an understanding of the consequences of our actions. Sustainable design demands an understanding of our place within the ecology of our planet, and an understanding of the consequences of our actions.

3 Case Study 10 Research Drive- The Terrace Building

4 The Terrace Building Exterior Shell complete in 2000 Exterior Shell complete in 2000 Interior fit-ups complete in 2001 Interior fit-ups complete in 2001 Exterior Landscaping is currently underway and scheduled for completion in Exterior Landscaping is currently underway and scheduled for completion in 2004.

5 The Terrace Building Won the 2003 NRCan Energy Efficiency Award for the New Buildings Category Won the 2003 NRCan Energy Efficiency Award for the New Buildings Category Was awarded CBIP (Commercial Building Incentive Program) status. Was awarded CBIP (Commercial Building Incentive Program) status. Is one of the most energy efficient buildings in Canada- It is 60% more efficient than the Model National Energy Code Building. Is one of the most energy efficient buildings in Canada- It is 60% more efficient than the Model National Energy Code Building.

6 The Terrace Building Cornerstones of Sustainable Design Cornerstones of Sustainable Design Utilize an Integrated Design Approach Use Environmentally Sensitive Materials Avoid Over Dependence on Mechanical Systems Consideration of Climate and Orientation Simple Technology Appropriate to Functional Need

7 The Terrace Building Simple Technology Appropriate to Functional Need Simple Technology Appropriate to Functional Need Utilized a high quality architectural enclosure Double glazed, argon filled, thermally broken windows. R-30 walls R-40 Roof

8 The Terrace Building Consideration of Climate and Orientation Consideration of Climate and Orientation May not always be possible given pre-existing conditions, in this case a pre-existing Master Plan required a particular building orientation Overhangs and Buttresses shield the large expanses of glass from the summer sun.

9 The Terrace Building Avoid Over Dependence on Mechanical Systems Avoid Over Dependence on Mechanical Systems Utilize passive technologies Naturally ventilated- Air rises through stack effect to Rotunda Drum ventilating atrium and office wings

10 The Terrace Building Avoid Over Dependence on Mechanical Systems Avoid Over Dependence on Mechanical Systems Large windows and light wells allow natural light to penetrate the office wings reducing artificial light requirements. The building uses 1 watt/ square foot of power.

11 The Terrace Building Tyndall Stone from local (Manitoba) source Tyndall Stone from local (Manitoba) source Granite from Quebec Granite from Quebec Concrete with fly ash filler Concrete with fly ash filler Aluminum column surrounds from recycled content Aluminum column surrounds from recycled content Carpet with recycled content Carpet with recycled content All materials were selected with consideration for low VOC’s All materials were selected with consideration for low VOC’s Use Environmentally Sensitive Materials

12 The Terrace Building Facilitate an approach that involves all parties Facilitate an approach that involves all parties Utilize an Integrated Design Approach Sustainable Design Goals are identified and all design decisions are made with an attempt to satisfy these requirements Sustainable Design Goals are identified and all design decisions are made with an attempt to satisfy these requirements Architects, engineers, owner, contractors work in an integrated team. Architects, engineers, owner, contractors work in an integrated team.

13 Laboratory Building Addition Utilize tried and proven building technologies in creative ways (similar to the Terrace) Utilize tried and proven building technologies in creative ways (similar to the Terrace) Utilize an Integrated Design Approach Utilize an Integrated Design Approach

14 Laboratory Building Addition Examine options for passive systems, natural lighting and ventilation Examine options for passive systems, natural lighting and ventilation Explore opportunities for recycled materials, reducing water consumption and storm water retention Explore opportunities for recycled materials, reducing water consumption and storm water retention
