The green building industry is one of the hottest right now. Construction has always been a major contributor to the economy, and Canada is adding enough new buildings every year that over 1,000 kilotons of new emissions are added to the building sector's footprint - compounded every year. The same market in the US adds almost 10 times more. This is obviously a problem.

The Green Building sector is making a significant impact at reversing this trend. Mindscape's partners are leading the way: our latest projects are pursuing net-zero, cost effectively. LEED Platinum is not only affordable, but it's making money for the building owners. Green material costs are continually becoming more competitive as suppliers adapt to the requirements of green building programs. There are brighter days ahead.

Enjoy the read!

This slide deck was prepared for an internal training event at BASF, the largest chemical company in the world. BASF products are used in everything from insulation to permeable pavement to agriculture. This presentation was designed for their construction market team at a special training event in Ontario, Canada.

  • Notes: <br /> This presentation is part of a panel of four: <br /> Here are the notes I took on the content of the presentation:  <br /> Kerry will introduce me, but I should be prepared to provide more detail <br /> comment on Mindscape, some of our key projects, London <br /> the presentation will be a bit of a &quot;green buildings 101&quot;;  <br /> review the programs / standards;  <br /> trends in green building;  <br /> trends in related technology markets;  <br /> comments on NZE, and on &quot;beyond NZE&quot;;  <br /> target 45 mins. slides, incl 5-10 mins. Q&A (target 20 slides);  <br /> audience ~70% sales oriented, ~30% technical;  <br /> bent towards more commercially oriented.  <br />
  • Image from http://www.cnrenovation.com/ <br /> Agenda: <br /> Kerry will introduce me, but I should be prepared to provide more detail <br /> comment on Mindscape, some of our key projects, London <br /> the presentation will be a bit of a &quot;green buildings 101&quot;;  <br /> review the programs / standards;  <br /> trends in green building;  <br /> trends in related technology markets;  <br /> comments on NZE, and on &quot;beyond NZE&quot;;  <br />
  • Parks and Trails and Street Vegetation <br />
  • Any effective ‘green’ rating system should be able to give due consideration to each of these topical areas of interest, and to their inter-relation. For example, there are many synergistic benefits between a tight building envelope and an efficient HVAC system. <br /> Site: landscaping, storm water management, site waste management, lighting… <br /> Building orientation and massing <br /> Water <br /> Envelope <br /> HVAC: Ventilation, and heating and cooling strategies <br /> Lighting and power <br /> Material selection <br /> And of course, the everpresent need for Quality Assurance, and Communication between designers <br /> Lastly, any system that can assess and compare the merits of green efforts under each of these areas should also afford some opportunity for “Value Engineering”, or for comparing the relative costs and benefits of different options. <br />
  • Key points: <br /> There are lots of great programs to help build better homes! <br /> All programs are good. The point is that they should be used (ie: don’t squabble about which is best or exclude any: encourage them all) <br /> Practically speaking, we spend most of our time on ENERGY STAR and LEED, but BUILT GREEN and NZ are up and coming. <br />
  • Key points: <br /> Again, all programs are good. Just use them. <br />
  • Key point: <br /> For no more than a couple % on the price (which amounts to pennies/day, or few dollars/month), you get a LOT MORE VALUE, and it pays for itself twice (in resale, and in utility savings)! <br /> $$ aside, there are significant soft benefits, like health and comfort. <br /> The question this slide answers: <br /> CAN I AFFORD IT? <br /> Like anything else, the more you invest, the more you get back. LEED® Silver is very affordable (~5% premium and ~4-5 yr. payback), and even Gold isn’t too expensive (~10% for &lt;10yr. payback) <br /> Builders we have contact with are telling us that their costs and sale value increases are approximately: <br /> E-star: $4k - $5k avg. increase, (~1.6% on a 250k home). E-star increased sale value: same! <br /> LEED®-H: “certified” (via US) ~10 - 12% more. LEED “gold” home will be ~25 - 30% (via US). We’ll fix that when we bring it to Canada! <br /> LEED®-H increased sale value: __ <br /> Capital cost impact affected by: <br /> LEED target level <br /> Spec flexibility (eg: Green Roof’s are expensive) <br /> Building type (ie: how energy efficient was the base design?) <br /> Project size (economies of scale): big projects tend to be less expensive on a per unit basis <br /> Green market maturity (in mature markets there is more experience and better availability, thus lower costs) <br /> Climate zone (eg: extreme clients have high cost projects, so the incremental costs tend to be less pronounced) <br /> Team experience <br /> Regardless, incremental costs tend to be very reasonable. <br />
  • Image is Winnipeg (MH Hydro in background) <br />
  • We all live somewhere: let’s start with homes… <br />
  • Toronto’s HELP (Home Energy Loan Program) <br /> Colorado’s NZE loans <br />
  • By theme (ie: not in the order shown): <br /> Energy: <br /> HRV <br /> ASHP/GSHP <br /> Solar <br /> Advanced water heaters (eg: condensing) <br /> DWHR <br /> Water: <br /> Greywater <br /> Cisterns <br /> Low-flow everything <br />
  • Commercial products you’ll see more of: <br /> VRF <br /> BIPV – yes, it’s now cost effective! <br /> CHP / cogen: more talented ppl doing more talented thingshttp://pulse.blogs.bendbulletin.com/2013/02/11/chuck-colclough-heart-of-the-hospital/ <br /> Metering & control – BAS“There’s an app for that” <br /> Invisible stuff (air tightness) <br /> More building labelling <br />
  • We’re waiting for a Regulation that offers details about what is “prescribed”: likely to happen shortly after NRCan releases the next generation (updated ) version of EnerGuide (tent. Spring 2014) <br />

  • Photo from http://www.socalofficerealestateblog.com/wp-content/newuploads/2009/06/saddleback-church-solar-electric-panels-1-large.jpg Policy Trends: Incentives That Make $ense Utility based: • Design assistance grants (conservation) • Energy audit & retrofit rebates • Net-metering / Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Municipality based: • Expedited approvals • Density bonuses • Partial/temporary property tax waivers • DC credits / cash rebates • Green Municipal Mortgages (LIC based) Other: Capital Cost Allowances (tax based)
  • (from the Green Energy Act…) 3.(1) A person making an offer to purchase an interest in real property has the right to receive from the person offering to sell the property such information, reports or ratings as are prescribed, (a) relating to energy consumption and efficiency with respect to a prescribed residence on the property or a class of prescribed residences on the property; and (b) in such circumstances and at such times as are prescribed and in such manner as is prescribed. 2009, c. 12, Sched. A, s. 3 (1). “Prescribed” implies a coming regulation yet to be released, likely to rely heavily on EnerGuide/NRCan.
  • © Mindscape Innovations Group Inc. As of Today… NZ! • NZE homes at $25k premium – Leased energy equipment? Cheaper from start! • Cost effective PV & LEDs (finally) • NZE towers >8 storeys w/ BIPV • Smart / NZE communities emerging • Certified buildings >50% of new in US • Homes programs >20% of new in CA • “Green” words have been abused – back to measurables: 3rd party programs: SMART
  • Beyond ‘zero’?
  • Opportunities for BASF… • Trained staff: today’s session, LEED® GA/AP • Environmental properties of your products: – % renewable content – % recycled content (PC/PI) – VOC content – Locations of origin • Environmental Product Declarations (EPD’s) & certifications: know your niche
