  • Slide illustrates the life cycle of a building and how the LEED rating systems align with the project phases. There is quite a bit of green building and LEED activity in the higher education sector. Colleges and universities have a higher percentage of LEED®-certified green space than any other sector, including government, retail and hospitality, with more than 4300 registered and certified LEED projects. College campuses are essentially small cities and can become models for sustainability and green building practices. Every LEED rating system has a place on a college campus however we have found that most institutions are not familiar with the complete suite of LEED rating systems.

  • GREENING WHAT’S ALREADY HERE GULF COAST GREEN MAY 2nd , 2013 Barbara A. Campagna, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C
  • GULF COAST GREEN AIA HOUSTON Especially Julie Hendricks THANK YOU Julia Ideson Building, Houston Public Library
  • Houston AIA is a Registered Provider with The American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems (AIA/CES). Credit(s) earned on completion of this program will be reported to AIA/CES for AIA members. Certificates of Completion for both AIA members and non- AIA members are available upon request. This program is registered with AIA/CES for continuing professional education. As such, it does not include content that may be deemed or construed to be an approval or endorsement by the AIA of any material of construction or any method or manner of handling, using, distributing, or dealing in any material or product. Questions related to specific materials, methods, and services will be addressed at the conclusion of this presentation.
  • The construction and operation of buildings accounts for almost 50% of the United States greenhouse gas emissions. But reusing and retrofitting our existing buildings can reduce these emissions dramatically. Reusing what we have – buildings, landscapes and communities – is the best way to make the biggest, most immediate impact in controlling climate change. New construction and major renovation comprises less than 10% of the country’s real estate portfolio, so it is clear that making a substantial impact on our planet will require focusing on the greater than 90% of buildings that are not new. While older, traditional buildings use less energy on average than more recent buildings, some worry that a push to green historic buildings will threaten valuable cultural resources. Greening What’s Already Here
  • Learning Objectives At the end of this program, participants will be able to: 1. Demonstrate how original character defining features in existing and historic buildings can be reactivated to improve energy and resource efficiency. 2. Identify the cultural and preservation metrics in past, current and future versions of the LEED rating system and how the recognition and use of these metrics has been improving. 3. Discuss the importance of greening the operations of existing and historic buildings. 4. Review the difference between LEED capital products and the LEED operations and maintenance product, and why the maintenance product will have a more significant impact on world resource use.

  •  Building reuse typically offers greater environmental savings than demolition and new construction.  It can take between 10 to 80 years for a new energy efficient building to overcome, through efficient operations, the climate change impacts created by its construction.  The majority of building types in different climates will take between 20-30 years to compensate for the initial carbon impacts from construction Reuse Matters Slides Courtesy Patrice Frey, National Trust
  •  The environmental benefits of reuse are maximized by minimizing the input of new construction materials.  Renovation projects that require many new materials can reduce or even negate the benefits of reuse.
