Transcript

  • 1. Sustainable Strategieswith Concrete
  • 2. Sustainability Environment Society EconomyCommonly used definition: “…meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” CONCRETE IS BY FAR THE MOST USED CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL IN THE WORLD
  • 3. Examples of Concrete Positives/Negatives• Advantages – Reaches all three tenants of sustainability (environment, society, economy) – Recycle/reuse, thermal mass contributes to reduced energy demand for HVAC, formable, affordable, …• Disadvantages – CO2 produced in the manufacture of cement • Primarily from release from limestone and fueling the kiln
  • 4. Strategies• Thermal Mass and Thermal Resistance• Stormwater Management• Economy• Occupant comfort• Longevity and Resilience• Reduce/Reuse/Recycle
  • 5. Thermal Mass• Concrete has – High capacity to store heat – Slow transfer of heat• Reduce temperature spikes• Delay temperature effects to inside of building• Reduced energy demand• Effective with passive solar from The Sustainable Concrete Guide
  • 6. Solar Collection and Storage Thermal Mass OR from The Sustainable Concrete Guide
  • 7. Outside temperature Inside (low thermal mass) Inside (high thermal mass)Temperature lag 1 lag 2 6am 12pm 6pm 12am 6am day night from The Sustainable Concrete Guide
  • 8. Thermal Resistance• Standard concrete generally does not have good insulating properties when used alone – Lightweight concrete has lower conductivity – Autoclaved Aerated Concrete From concrete.org (PCA) (AAC)• In conjunction with other materials – CMUs, cavity walls, precast sandwich panels, ICFs (insulating concrete forms)
  • 9. Stormwater Management• Pervious concrete• Pavers – Grid, interlocking
  • 10. Economy• A long-time goal in the concrete industry
  • 11. Occupant Comfort• Indoor Air Quality – low VOCs with concrete as the finished surface – No mold growth or rot• Daylighting• Acoustics (transmission reduction)• Occupant comfort• Aesthetics• Heat island decrease from The Sustainable Concrete Guide
  • 12. Longevity and Resilience• Life cycle assessment (LCA) and cradle-to-grave (or cradle-to-cradle)• Corrosion resistance / durability• Low maintenance• Robust for safety• Adaptable to changing climate
  • 13. Repair• Large amount of existing inventory• Small amount of money = Focus on repair from The Sustainable Concrete Guide
  • 14. Reduce/Reuse/Recycle• Waste for kiln fuel• Waste in concrete mix• Crush concrete for reuse
  • 15. Committee 130: Sustainability• 130A: Materials• 130B: Production/Transportation/Construction• 130C: Structures in Service• 130D: Rating Systems/Sustainability Tools• 130E: Design/Specifications/Codes/Regulations• 130F: Social Issues• 130G: Education/Certification
  • 16. Where does your committee fit?• Longevity and resilience• Repair• Reduce, reuse, recycle• Others?• What is the best way for 130 to work with your committee?
  • 17. from The Sustainable Concrete Guide Questions?
