RCD CDHO - EE in HOME Workshop

  1. 1. Energy Efficiency, Renewables, and Green Building in HOME Housing Programs Lihbin Shiao, Consultant Project Manager Resources for Community Development Oxford Plaza/David Brower Center 2200 Oxford Street, Berkeley, CA San Jose Workshop June 10, 2008
  2. 2. RCD Greenbuilding Strategy • Priority – Measures resulting in beneficial outcomes to residents – Indoor Air Quality – Energy & Utility cost savings – Smart growth also promotes access to resources – Durable finishes – Access to natural resources • Secondarily – Sustainable building practices – Reduce impact of construction on environment
  3. 3. Sustainable Development and Green Building USGBC Shinsei Gardens LEED for Homes Oxford Plaza and David Brower Center Fox Courts Los Medanos Village Northgate Apartments Breakers at Bayport
  4. 4. Typical RCD Green Features Bioswales Steel Framing Infill Sites Photovoltaic Panels Formaldehyde Free Cabinets Brownfield Remediation & Insulation Recycled Rainwater for Irrigation Native Plant Landscaping Recycled Content Carpet Energy Star Appliances and Light Fixtures Natural Linoleum High Content Slag in Concrete
  5. 5. Overview of Oxford Plaza & Retail Case Study • 97 units of affordable housing – 30% - 60% AMI + PBS8 • 8,500 sq ft ground floor retail • Co-located with the David Brower Center – 50,000 sq ft including non-profit office space, a theatre, art gallery, and Back to Earth sustainable restaurant • Co-located with a City parking garage
  6. 6. Green Building Measures Smart Growth Principles • High Density Development (97 units / acre for total site, 143.7 units/acre for the housing parcel) • Transit Oriented, Urban Infill Development Reduction of Construction Waste • 75% of total project construction and demolition waste diverted from landfill
  7. 7. Energy Efficiency • Solar thermal hot water system on the roof for heating and hot water • Radiant hydronic in slab system for heating • Exceeds Title 24 standards for energy efficiency by more than 15% • Energy Star appliances and energy efficient lighting tttthroughout • Awnings on south facing windows which reduce the tttneed for summertime cooling and wintertimetheating
  8. 8. Recycled Content & Indoor Air Quality • Use of recycled-content building materials • CRI “Green Label” rated carpets throughout units and linoleum floors in kitchens; • Mechanically assisted ventilation • Low VOC paints and no VOC adhesives
  9. 9. Resource Conservation • High content slag concrete to reduce use of portland cement, CO2 emissions, and water • Low flow toilets and showers • 80% California Native and Mediterranean Species (climate appropriate) or edible plant landscaping that require little summer watering, once established • Planting grouped in hydrozones and are watered through a high- efficiency irrigation system, e.g. drip line irrigation
  10. 10. Resource Conservation • All metal framing (28% recycled content) which results in minimizing use of wood in the project. • Rainwater will be collected from Oxford Plaza and directed to a cistern in the Brower Center when there is capacity in the cistern • Durable finishes and cabinets with longer useful life
  11. 11. Challenges in Implementation of Green Measures • New technologies - trial and error & additional cost & time – Slag concrete – Metal framing – Radiant tubing • Financing – Increased cost per unit – Capturing savings through utility allowances to fund energy efficient measures • Other priorities for resources
  12. 12. Strategies to Promote Green HOME Housing • Eligibility for HOME Funds • Acceptance of Increased Costs – Upfront & in Change Orders • Some jurisdictions give points for inexpensive rating systems, e.g., Build It Green
