  2. 2. AGENDA • Review the LCC issues for GREEN and Intelligent Buildings • Examples of applying LCC to Green Building options • Other life cycle environmental attributes covered under Life cycle analysis • Example of LCC for intelligent building choices • Funding for the energy investments • Associations and agencies that have programs to help pay for the investments especially if they provide life cycle benefits. Review your interests and share info on any projects and challenges of applying life cycle costs under budgetary restraint 3/17/2010 2
  3. 3. Intelligent and Green Building Investments Typical problems that LCC can resolve: Having lower life cycle costs provides the incentive to overcome the lower first cost or budgetary restrictions. Building valuations that look at the revenues and the operating costs are improved by having the lower operating costs of better facilities. Making repairs to existing equipment versus advancing the purchase of new better performing equipment 3/17/2010 3
  4. 4. Application to design and construction process LCC analysis has many applications in the capital asset, buildings and infrastructure projects that use the design and construction process. Choosing the appropriate materials and costing out the operating and maintenance cost of different alternatives provides the design and construction professional the ability to include the owner’s financial criteria as part of the process. 3/17/2010 4

Ground source heat pumps Natural ventilation 3/17/2010 16
  17. 17. Sustainable Ecosystems Appropriate Site Selection Land that is already municipally serviced or has previously been built upon should be favoured for development over previously undeveloped areas to enhance local ecology and preserved ecologically sensitive areas. Natural Corridors When linked to natural areas, community green spaces can provide valuable wildlife habitat and migration pathways. Site design should encourage interconnected natural areas and wildlife corridors. Light Pollution Reduction Natural corridor and Riparian Zone Minimizing outdoor lighting, without compromising safety, can significantly reduce environmental threats to nocturnal wildlife species. Native Species Planting Using plants that are native to a site reduces irrigation, lowers pesticide and fertilizer use, and cuts Native plant species – Bullrushes, Canadian Goldenrod, and Switchgrass maintenance costs. Site design should ensure 75% of plantings are native. Roadway Naturalization Roadway edges and easements can support plantings that provide habitat for natural corridors and can be designed to reflect topographical and environmental conditions. ECD Energy and Environment Canada Ltd. Brownfield at mouth of the Keating Channel, Toronto, ON
  18. 18. Sustainable Energy Sources Microclimatic Design Building design that maximizes solar access in winter for Wind turbine at the Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto, ON passive solar heat gain and shades windows in summer; controls wind and snow exposure; insulates against energy loss with green roofs of earth shelters, and promotes green roofs reduces energy consumption, Passive Solar Heating Buildings with sufficient southern exposure can capture sunlight in winter and release it as heat, reducing energy Photovoltaic curtain costs. In the summer, trees, window overhangs and wall spandrels sunshades block sunlight, keeping the building cool. Natural or Hybrid Ventilation Buildings may be ventilated and cooled passively if designed to take advantage of temperature/pressure differentials inside and outside the building, thereby creating cross-ventilation. Natural ventilation can be Photovoltaic combined with traditional systems in a hybrid design. bus shelter Solar-Powered Street Furniture Signs, bus shelters, street lights, and parking meters can easily function off-grid with a small solar array. Community-Based Energy Generation Photovoltaic light Renewable energy comes from non-fossil fuel based South-facing sources, like the sun, wind, water or earth. Governments, housing, Milton utilities and individuals should consider these sources Vegetated "green" roof, Keynes, UK both for their environmental sustainability and their Mountain Equipment Co-op, stable, long-term costs. Toronto, ON ECD Energy and Environment Canada Ltd.
  19. 19. Sustainable Resource Use Eco-Industrial Synergies One company’s waste may be another company’s resource. Encouraging regional economic exchange of by-products and energy leads to increased energy efficiency, reduces pollution, decreases waste volumes, and creates new market opportunities. Adaptive Re-Use of Existing Buildings New buildings consume approximately 50% of all materials produced. Re- using existing structures, or salvaging their materials (such as brick, steel, timber, doors, fixtures, etc) conserves large quantities of resources and helps to preserve existing urban/cultural infrastructure. Recycled Material Use Tires, concrete, asphalt, fly-ash, carpet, ceiling tiles, and metal products can all be recycled for use in urban infrastructure such as roads. Materials in open spaces, such as playground equipment and surfaces, benches, tables, bike racks and signs can be recycled, recyclable or re-usable. Gooderham and Worts Distillery District, Toronto, ON Sustainable Material Use The life cycles (or cradle-to-grave environmental effects) of materials should Mountain Equipment be considered in their selection. Variations in the ways concrete, steel, Co-op, Toronto, ON. Structure consists of timber, carpet, etc. are produced, materially composed, used, and disposed salvaged timbers and of strongly affect their environmental impact. fly-ash concrete. On-site Composting and Recycling Niagara Region has a waste diversion goal of 65% by 2012. For this goal to be realized, areas for the handling, storage and separation of recyclables should be commonplace, and composting should be a priority where food waste is being produced. ECD Energy and Environment Canada Ltd.
  20. 20. Sustainable Transportation Improved Building Access The energy needed to transport goods and for commuting to building is often equal to the amount of energy needed to operate the building. To reduce energy consumption, access routes for goods should be optimized and walking distances to public transit should be shortened. Pedestrian and Bicycle Traffic Walkable and bikeable communities expand transportation options, diversify neighbourhoods, and reduce reliance on automobiles. Foot and bike paths, denser urban fabric, reduced auto speeds, and sheltered bicycle parking should be a priority. Alternative Parking Arrangements The minimum number of parking spaces required for a development is determined by the peak demand. This can be excessive in some circumstances and options such as parking in lieu and parking on alternative sites may be more desirable. Designated carpool lot Carpooling Shared vehicle transportation reduces automobile usage and Bike lanes and bike storage facility congestion. Convenient pick-ups areas and a voluntary database of occupants’ postal codes help to promote carpooling. Alternative Fuel Re-Fueling Stations Public interest in vehicles fuelled by alternative fuels (such as electricity, natural gas, ethanol and biodiesel) is increasing, but these vehicles need conveniently located re-fuelling stations to Hydrogen re-fuelling station, grow in number. Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto, ON ECD Energy and Environment Canada Ltd.
  21. 21. Sustainable Water & Wastewater Services Stormwater Management Site design should focus on increasing ground infiltration of water and reducing quantity and off-site treatment of run-off. Practices include minimizing impermeable paved surfaces, storing water in catchment systems, increasing vegetation, and creating retention ponds and infiltration basins. Bioswale, Water Lving Machine wastewater facility, Nova Pollution Control Lab, Scotia Portland, Oregon Bioswale Design Grassed or vegetated drainage channels, an alternative to traditional curb and gutter stormwater management, retain water and break down road contaminants. Planters Impermeable Paving Riparian Permeable Snow Pile Placement Zone Bioswale Paving Snow piles should be placed away from drainage courses and storm drain inlets to diminish impact of salts and other toxins on stream courses. Water Table Riparian Zone Protection Vegetated transition areas between a body of water and upland area control erosion, filter run-off, and provide animal habitat. Innovative Wastewater Treatment Grey-water recycling, composting toilets, constructed wetlands and Living Machines can reduce overall Storm water consumption and reduce BOD content in Stream Sewer wastewater to levels lower than those produced through conventional treatment.

  22. 22. Sample LCC Application to Sustainability Green Roofs DEARBORN, Michigan - Ford is installing an environmentally sound roof on its $2-billion redevelopment of its Rouge River manufacturing complex. Keith Schneider, program director of the Michigan Land Use Institute, praised the green roof plan as innovative, if not a little risky. The new Ford Rouge Center assembly plant construction is one of the largest industrial redevelopment projects in the US. The green approach is designed to save Ford $35 million, when compared with the cost of installing a conventional treatment system, Schneider says.
