1 1 Johnson County Sunset Drive Office Building Environmental Stewardship for Public Buildings Neal Angrisano, AIA Deputy Director of Facilities Management

2 2 Johnson County Facts Part of the Kansas City Metro area Rapidly growing (sprawling) suburban community Population of 520,000 growing by 10,000/yr County government made up of 40 different departments. Annual budget: $800 million County owns and operates 2.2 million square feet of facilities

3 3 County Facilities Department Facilities Department plans, designs, constructs and operates County buildings Planning and Design Group Staff of seven architects, three interior designers and other professionals Staff of seven architects, three interior designers and other professionals Currently managing $120 mil in design or construction with another $700 mil proposed Currently managing $120 mil in design or construction with another $700 mil proposed

4 4 Project Facts High performance building 129,000 square feet Procured with Best-Value Design-Build $30,050,000 total project budget 17 acre site High level of environmental stewardship (LEED Gold)

5 5 We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. Buildings are responsible for almost half of all energy consumption and green-house gas emissions annually There are hundreds of coal- fired power plants currently on the drawing boards in the US.

6 6 Seventy-six percent of the energy produced by these plants will go to operate buildings. But whatever your feelings are about topics like the environment and global warming, there is one overriding fact: Environmentally responsible design and construction practices save money, lots of money….and in the public sector, this means taxpayers money.

7 7 Financial Impacts of Green Design and Construction Short-term Strategies that have beneficial results right away and have quick return on investment Strategies that have beneficial results right away and have quick return on investmentMid-term Approaches that build or provide value over time Approaches that build or provide value over timeLong-term Strategies that have significant impact when considered over the life of a building.

12 12 Sustainability Matrix

13 13 Design-Build Single source contract Can be contractor, architect or developer led Single, integrated team for delivery of project

14 14 Johnson County Rationale for Using Design-Build Ability to factor in qualifications of builder Best value rather than lowest bid Speed of contracting and construction Single point responsibility Integrated team promotes innovation Balanced, collaborative team Competition drives innovation, quality & values at all levels.

15 15 Advantages of Design-Build for Public Green Projects: Integrated, collaborative team Ability to evaluate the qualifications of all team members right down to sub- consultants, sub-contractors and suppliers Having a project superintendent, for example, who understands how to build green is a big deal. Having a project superintendent, for example, who understands how to build green is a big deal.

16 16 Advantages of Design-Build for Public Green Projects: All stakeholders are on board with the project goals Ability to maximize innovation Financial issues are well developed and defined

17 17 Disadvantages of Design-Build for Public Green Projects: In constructor-led D-B, design professionals dont always have their accustomed control of the design process Owner can be more removed from the normal architect / client relationship

44 44 Procurement Concepts Performance specification RFP process chosen rather than bridging Qualifications Based Selection Best Value proposal evaluation Stipends Process was, in many respects, a design competition, or really an innovation competition.

45 45 Other Procurement Goals Balance throughout team: Role of all design components Role of all design components Role of subcontractors Role of subcontractors Universal understanding of environmental stewardship throughout team Universal understanding of environmental stewardship throughout team Finding a Design-Build partner that shared the Countys philosophical approach to development and capital investment

46 46 Lessons Learned Design-Build has the potential for outstanding Green results – if it is approached properly. Reduced chance of highly successful project if we had relied on low bid.

47 47 Lessons Learned Organizations and constituencies can be educated about the advantages of building Green. The press can be educated also. The general public is very interested in this topic.

48 48 Lessons Learned Environmental stewardship is no longer a special interest – it is mainstream. It is appropriate and good for the public sector to be leading this approach.

49 49 Lessons Learned Green design is just basically just good design. We achieved a high level of environmental performance with mostly standard approaches – just applied in sensitive and creative ways. As good as our building is, it is still just less bad. The next horizon – Carbon neutral and environmentally restorative buildings.
