    1. 1. LEED LEED Applicable Sustainable Site Development Strategies for Civil Engineers Presented By: Rachael Green LEED AP, GA-C David Rodriguez, LEED AP
    2. 2. THE USGBC U.S. GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL Engineers Interior Designers Building Tenants Property Managers Architects Planners Building Owners Code Officials Utility Managers Product Manufacturers Landscape Architects Financial Planners Nonprofit Leaders Federal, State and Local Governments Chapter Mission To promote a sustainable, healthy and prosperous built environment in the North Texas area through training, education and outreach.
    3. 3. THE USGBC USGBC is a community of leaders working to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built, and operated. USGBC provides top quality educational offerings on green design, construction, and operations for professionals from all sectors of the building industry. EDUCATION & ADVOCACY
    4. 4. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. From the USGBC: Green has become the shorthand term for the concept of sustainable development as applied to the building industry. Also known as high-performance buildings, green buildings are intended to be environmentally responsible, economically profitable, and healthy places to live and work.
    5. 5. 12% of Potable Water Consumption 39% of CO2 Emissions 65% of Waste Output 71% of Electricity Consumption WHAT ARE THE IMPACTS OF BUILDINGS? 39% of Energy Consumption 30% of Raw Materials Use
    6. 6. <ul><ul><li>Who uses the power? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Operating buildings consume electrical power at an amazing rate </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At the current rate, U.S. is projected to need 1,300 to 1,900 new power plants over the next 20 years – 1 per week . </li></ul></ul>
    7. 8. RESIDENTIAL BUILDING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS What about residential? Our housing stock in the United States consumes roughly 20% of our primary energy and raw materials
    8. 9. <ul><li>Lower Operating Costs ( 8-9%) </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Savings 30% </li></ul><ul><li>Water Use Savings 30-50% </li></ul><ul><li>Waste Cost Savings 50-90% </li></ul><ul><li>Carbon Savings 35% </li></ul><ul><li>Improved Indoor Air Quality </li></ul><ul><li>Improvement in ROI (6.6%) </li></ul><ul><li>Increase in occupancy (3.5%) </li></ul><ul><li>Rent increase (3%) </li></ul><ul><li>Increased Value (7.5%) </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced Liability </li></ul><ul><li>Improved Risk Management </li></ul><ul><li>Enhanced Recruitment </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced Absenteeism </li></ul><ul><li>Improved Morale </li></ul><ul><li>Include Enhanced Productivity </li></ul>Retail = increases in sales per square foot Factories = increased production Offices = 2-16% increased production Hospitals = earlier discharge rates Schools = 20% better test performance Immediate Advantages of Green Buildings

    36. 38. Credit 1 Site Selection Prerequisite 1 Construction Activity Pollution Prevention Sustainable Sites Who is Responsible? (Superintendent during construction and Civil Engineer during Design (provide Names and contact information) This credit Must be achieved since it is a prerequisite. Who will provide the Narrative? Civil Engineer There will be drawings required for submittal. SWPPP Who is Responsible? Architect, landscape architects, ecologists, environmental engineers and civil engineers (provide Names and contact information) There could be a small design time impact due to the research required. There should be little additional Design Fees due to the research. Who will provide the Narrative and project data? Civil Engineer
    37. 39. Sustainable Sites <ul><li>● Perform a site survey to inventory the important environmental characteristics, including wetlands, sloped areas, unique habitat areas and forested areas. </li></ul><ul><li>● Higher first costs may be encountered due to site survey and selection activities. ● Increased property values can offset these costs in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>● Do not develop buildings, hardscape, roads or parking areas on portions of sites that meet any one of the following criteria: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>*** Prime Farmland </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>*** Previously undeveloped land whose elevation is lower than 5 feet above the elevation of the 100-year flood as defined by FEMA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>*** Land that is specifically identified as habitat for any species on Federal or State threatened or endangered lists </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>*** Within 100 feet of any wetlands and isolated wetlands or areas of special concern identified by state or local rule OR within setback distances from wetlands. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>*** Previously undeveloped land that is within 50 feet of a water body, defined as seas, lakes, rivers, streams and tributaries which support or could support fish, recreation or industrial use </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>*** Land which prior to acquisition for the project was public parkland, unless land of equal or greater value as parkland is accepted in trade by the public landowner (Park Authority projects are exempt). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>● Zoning requirements of the local municipality and the community master plan should be integrated to the greatest extent possible. </li></ul>Credit 1 Site Selection
    38. 40. Erosion Control Plan SWPPP Plan Site boundary consistent
    39. 41. Who is Responsible? Architect, and civil engineers The initial Cost Impact will be determined by the site selection/location. There could be a small design time impact due to the research required. There should be little additional Design Fees due to the research. Who will provide the Narrative if there are any special circumstances or non-standard compliance paths taken by the project? Who will provide the project date with calculations? Who will provide the site vicinity drawing with information required? If going for option 2 (Community Connectivity) who will do the research? This credit is an owner and design team decision. Sustainable Sites Credit 2 Development Density and Community Connectivity
    40. 42. Credit 2 Development Density and Community Connectivity Sustainable Sites ● Research will need to performed for this credit. ● The general approach for achieving this credit is to give preference to sites within an existing urban area. ● Sites with redevelopment plans that will achieve the required development density by the completion of the project should not be excluded from consideration. ● This credit can be achieved by choosing to develop a site where community revitalization is occurring provided the required development density or basic services adjacency is in place or in construction by the project’s completion. ● For the second option – Community Connectivity Only count those services for which there is pedestrian access between the service and the project. (Pedestrian access is assessed by confirming that pedestrians can walk to the services without being blocked by walls, highways, or other barriers.) No service may be counted more than once with the exception of restaurants which can be counted twice. ● Proximity is determined by drawing a ½ mile radius around the main building entrance on a site map and counting the services within that radius.
    41. 43. Sustainable Sites Who is Responsible? Architect, and civil engineers There could be additional time impacts due to the potentially extensive effort required to characterize the contamination, evaluate cleanup options and perform cleanup activities. There should be little additional Design Fees due to the research. Who will provide the Narrative? Who will provide the project date required by the EPA? This credit is an owner decision. Credit 3 Brownfield Redevelopment
    42. 44. Sustainable Sites Credit 3 Brownfield Redevelopment ● Develop on a site documented as contaminated (by means of an ASTM E1903-97 Phase II Environmental Site Assessment or a local Voluntary Cleanup Program) OR on a site defined as a Brownfield by a local, state or federal government agency. ● The initial Cost Impact could be costly due to the potentially extensive effort required to characterize the contamination, evaluate cleanup options and perform cleanup activities. ● Substantially lower property costs can offset remediation costs and time delays. The cost for remediation varies by site and region. ● Research with local municipalities and landowners for below market purchase prices for Brownfield real estate. ● Obtain tax incentives by meeting the locally applicable requirements of EPA Brownfield tax credits. ● Coordinate any remediation activities with contractor and subcontractors to ensure the scheduling will not be affected. Identify on SWPPP any areas for staging during the remediation efforts.
    43. 45. Credit 4.1 Alternative Transportation – Public Transportation Access Sustainable Sites Who is Responsible? Architect, and civil engineers Locate project within ½ mile of an existing or planned and funded commuter rail, light rail, or subway stations Research will need to be done to identify the above information, or if the site is located within ¼ mile of one or more stops for tow or more public or campus bus lines usable by the building occupants. There could be a small time impacts due to research required but not much. There should be no to little additional Design Fees due to the research. Who will provide the Narrative if required?

Sustainable Sites Credit 4.1 Alternative Transportation – Public Transportation Access ● The owner should provide incentives such as transit passes to encourage occupants to use mass transit. ● If a light rail or subway station is sited, planned and funded at the time the project is completed, it satisfies the intent of this credit. ● Institute a comprehensive transportation management plan that demonstrates a quantifiable reduction in personal automobile use the implementation of multiple alternative options. This will help reduce the amount of space required for parking and Stormwater management as well as assisting in the possibility of achieving a LEED Innovation credit point for all SS 4 credits. This can also help reduce the first costs during construction with a reduction of materials, lead times and additional up-front costs occurred during the design and construction phases.
    45. 47. Credit 4.4 Alternative Transportation – Parking Capacity Who is Responsible? Is this credit going to be attempted? Who will provide the Narrative if required? Who will provide the project date and drawings? This credit is an owner and design team decision. ● If parking demand is expected to be less than that required by local codes, consider seeking a variance with the appropriate authorities to provide less parking. - Who will be responsible if needed? ● If parking capacity is reduced the cost of land added for parking as well as infrastructure needed to support vehicles. Reduction parking areas can decrease the amount of impervious surfaces on a site which may result in reduced Stormwater charges. ● “ Preferred Parking” refers to the parking spots that are closest to the main entrance of the project (exclusive of spaces designated for handicapped) or parking passes provided at a discounted price. ● Provide appropriate signage at carpool or vanpool locations and include in the construction documents.

    48. 50. Credit 5.1 Site Development – Protect or Restore Habitat Sustainable Sites ● There could be a large initial Cost Impact. These impacts can potentially reduce maintenance costs over their lifetime. But the trees and vegetation may be costly to purchase. There may be other additional costs such as soil remediation and water elements. Shade trees located close to the facility may decrease cooling loads and reduce energy expenditures. ● Consider stacking the building program, tuck-under parking and sharing facilities with neighbors. ● Prohibit plant materials listed as invasive or noxious weed species. Native/adapted plants should be used. ● The contractor will need to be involved during the construction process to establish clearly marked construction and disturbance boundaries as well as lay down, recycling , disposal and staging areas. Infrastructure construction will need to be coordinated as well. ●“ Greenfield” sites are those that are not previously developed or graded and remain in a natural state. Previously developed sites are those that previously contained buildings, roadways, parking lots or were graded or altered by direct human activities. ● Use the site survey that was done for SS credit 1. ● For urban projects earning SS c2, consider installing a vegetated roof. Include the structural engineer and landscape architect.

    50. 52. Credit 5.2 Site Development – Maximize Open Space Sustainable Sites ● There may not be any initial cost impacts. ● Reducing the building footprint by building vertical may add a small percentage to first cost depending on size and use. A smaller footprint is more resource-efficient and can result in reduced materials and energy costs as well as operations and maintenance costs. Consider a vegetated roof and/or underground parking. ● Consider issues such as building orientation, daylighting, heat island effects, Stormwater generation, significant vegetation, existing green corridors, and other sustainable building issues. ● Wetlands or naturally designed ponds may count as open space if the side slope gradients average 1:4 (vertical: horizontal) or less and are vegetated. ● Use the site survey from SSc1. ● There are 3 options to achieve this credit.

    52. 54. Credit 6.1 Stormwater Design – Quantity Control Sustainable Sites ● One way to reduce the Stormwater runoff volume is to reduce the amount of impervious area. Specify vegetated roofs and pervious paving. If using pervious paving consider ADA impacts. ● Water detention and retention features require cost for design, installation and maintenance. These features can also add significant value as site amenities . Smaller Stormwater collection and treatment systems lessen the burden on municipalities for maintenance and repair, resulting in a more affordable and stable tax base. ● If considering collection and reuse for non-potable applications verification will need to be made with the local municipality. ● Capturing and reusing Stormwater runoff for landscape is also a consideration.
