  • 1. MSBA Policies and Programs for Sustainable Building
  • 2.
    • Newly created quasi-public Authority in 2004
    • Funding is from 1 penny of 6 ¼ % sales tax
    • Reimburses the Districts for projects from 31% to 80% of project costs
    • The reimbursement rate is based on the ability of the District to pay, determined by the communities’:
      • income – from Dept of Revenue
      • property wealth – property value from Dept of Revenue
      • poverty factor – federal eligibility for free / reduced lunch
    Introduction to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA)
  • 3. MSBA: Longstanding Commitment to Green Schools
    • Since the MSBA’s creation in 2004, we have shown a strong commitment to green schools:
      • Awarded over $33M to school districts for green design elements
      • Require basic green schools minimum standards in MSBA regulations
      • Offer 2% reimbursement point incentives for green design elements
      • Pay 100% of the MSBA cost for Building Commissioning for all school projects in our pipeline
      • In May 2010, initiated a “Green Repair Program” on a competitive basic for all eligible school districts
  • 4.
    • CFCs prohibited in all new systems
    • Provides for recycling of paper, cardboard, glass, plastic & metal
    • Building orientation to maximize natural daylight in classrooms
    • Meet ASHRAE* standards for Indoor Air Quality (62.1) and Thermal Comfort (55)
    • Meet SMACNA** “IAQ Guidelines for Occupied Buildings During Construction” and “Dust Cleanliness for New Construction Guidelines”
    Green Guidelines and Policies 963 CMR 2:00 School Building Program includes the following sustainable requirements for all MSBA funded projects : *American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers **Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association
  • 5.
    • Require replacement of HVAC filters prior to occupancy
    • Require negative air pressure in critical rooms (cleaning, photocopy, etc)
    • Two part walk-off mats at entrances
    • Electric ignition systems for gas-fired equipment
    • Separate air intake from contaminants
    • Moisture protection of materials during construction
    • Anti-idling policy
    • Minimum standards for daylight and views in classrooms
    (continued…) Green Guidelines and Policies
  • 6. Green Guidelines and Policies Old Policy: Based on 2006 MA-CHPS Minimum sustainable requirements: New Policy: Based on 2009 MA-CHPS and LEED-S Additional Reimbursement: 963 CMR 2.00 section 2.04 General Site and School Construction Standards MA-CHPS “Verified” (40 pts new / 35 pts renovation) Or LEED-S “Certified” (40 pts)* 30 – 33 points = 1.5% 34 points or greater = 2% 1.5% reimbursement no longer available MA-CHPS “Leader” (50 pts new / 45 pts reno = 2.0% Or LEED-S “Silver” (50 pts) * = 2.0% * Projects using the LEED-S criteria must also achieve a minimum of five points in EA Credit 1 “Optimize Energy Performance” (with minimum energy cost savings of 20% for new and 16% for existing renovations
  • 7. 2006 MA-CHPS v. 1.0
  • 8. 2009 MA-CHPS v. 2.0
  • 9. 2009 MA-CHPS v. 2.0
  • 10. 2009 MA-CHPS v. 2.0
      • Major changes to MA-CHPS:
      • Based on the CHPS National Core Criteria, and adapted by states for local conditions
      • Incorporates the MA Stretch Energy Code as a prerequisite
      • Provides incentives to renovate rather than replace
      • Higher requirements for energy and water use efficiency (based on recent post-occupancy reports)
      • Increases requirements for training, operations and maintenance

  • 20. Green Repair Program
    • Goals
      • Reduce energy consumption and operational costs
      • Improve maintenance of existing buildings
    • Elegible Elements:
      • Roofs
      • Boilers
      • Window Systems
    • Green Standards based on MA Stretch Energy Codes
    • Up to $300 million in grants available from MSBA
  • 21. Renewable Resources
      • MSBA does not directly participate in funding of renewable systems but there is funding available through the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (formerly known as MTC) Renewable Energy Trust for:
        • Photovoltaic systems (Commonwealth Solar)
        • Wind turbines (Commonwealth Wind)
