    • Implementation of Energy Efficiency, Renewables, & Green Building June 10, 2008 Teresa Clarke, Senior Project Manager Affordable Housing Associates
    • Green building follows naturally from mission of non-profit developer Green building principles further AHA’s mission statement, project goals and program requirements.
    • AHA’s Key Design Principles • Long-term affordability • Client-centered, community-oriented, user-friendly • High-quality design, materials, & construction • Cost-effective development and operations • Durable and easy to maintain • Energy and resource efficient • Healthy and safe
    • Objectives of Green & Sustainable Building • Sustainable Site/Smart Growth • Natural Resource Conservation • Energy Efficiency • Indoor Air Quality • And the newest kid on the block: Reducing climate change impacts
    • Case Study: Ashby Lofts, Berkeley, CA • Southwest Berkeley- Mixed land uses • San Pablo Ave State Hwy 123 • Ashby Avenue State Hwy 13
    • Ashby Lofts-Sustainable Site • Infill site rather than greenfield development • Transportation- – TCAC = “Transit Amenities”=1/4 mile every 30 minutes – LEED = ½ mile train, ¼ mile bus, bicycles for 15% of residents • Neighborhood amenities – TCAC=Grocery, school, hospital, pharmacy, services
    • Infill site near transit • Multiple connecting bus lines, future intercity bicycle path, 1-mile from BART • Close to retail: Walgreens, OSH, future Berkeley Bowl Market • Close to Aquatic Park & San Pablo Park, Malcolm X elementary school
    • Ashby Lofts- Sustainable Site • Mixed-Use Zoning – 54 apts- 3BR, 2-BR 1-BR, ground floor retail • High density development – 89 units/acre • Parking – 15% reduction in parking required ratio • Brownfield redevelopment – former asphalt processing plant
    • Ashby Lofts: Building Design Strategies • Exterior balconies, no double loaded corridors • Courtyard open spaces between buildings • Natural light with tall windows • Double-height spaces in larger apts • Cross ventilation from front to back
    • Ashby Energy Efficient Systems • Exceeded Title 24 Energy standards by 15% • 100% Florescent lighting • Timers, occupancy sensors, and controls for lighting, fans and other HVAC equipment • Energy-efficient centralized boilers • PV Solar electric system • Energy STAR appliances
