  • 1. Global Trends in Sustainable Building: Techniques and Tools Colin Turnbull, Senior Urban Planner World Green Building Day, Bogotá 23rd September 2010
  • 2. Running Order •  Introduction to my company and professional background •  Sustainable Cities: Panama Pacifico •  Sustainable Districts: Greenwich Peninsula & London 2012 Olympic Park •  Sustainable Neighbourhoods & Streets: Oxford Circus, London •  Conclusions •  BREEAM® Communities assessment •  Atkins Carbon Critical Masterplanning tool
  • 3. Introducing Atkins   Atkins is the 11th largest design firm, and the 2nd largest architecture firm, in the world   Founded in 1938 in the UK, we have over 15,000 people globally with the expertise to respond to the most technically challenging and time-critical infrastructure projects   We support the urgent transition to a low-carbon economy   Voted Number 1 Environmental Consultancy in the UK since 2005 (www.edie.net)
  • 4. Introducing this presentation   I will introduce the techniques and skills we apply…   Across all scales of project, from entire new cities, to street improvements…   For developers and governments…   In the pursuit of sustainable development globally…   And premiere our new Carbon Critical Masterplanning Tool
  • 5. Planning - at the heart of sustainable development A wide range of skills are needed to deliver sustainable development An urban planner brings together all the disciplines To balance the needs and expectations of all stakeholders
  • 6. Sustainable Cities: Panamá Pacífico (London & Regional Properties, 2006-) Special Economic Area on the site of former USAF Howard 2,000 hectares in size on the banks of the Panama Canal
  • 7. Techniques and skills to masterplan a new city Visioning – what does everyone agree the city should be? Objectives and goals – measurable and time-limited Identifying the markets for property and land – and in turn funding, phasing and any constraints and support from government (e.g. consents, taxation) Territorial analysis – topography, geology, hydrology, pollution, vegetation, wildlife, cultural heritage Definition of areas – and roles of undeveloped areas Sustainability is a key factor in every stage Envision a city that is built to last – not a new concept - but today it means it must adapt to and mitigate climate change and resource depletion
  • 8. Articulating the relationship between the development and its natural surroundings
  • 9. Sustainable Districts Greenwich Peninsula, London (1999- ) London 2012 Olympic Park (2006- )
  • 10. Sustainable Districts: Greenwich Peninsula The existing site (74 hectares) Oil and gas refining Wharves Social housing Disconnected – river and highways as barriers Distant from central London
  • 11. Sustainable Districts: Greenwich Peninsula Our role Project managing the site enabling works (demolition, de- contamination, new utilities) Planning consents for entire Peninsula EIA for the Dome and its legacy use
  • 12. Sustainable Districts: Greenwich Peninsula Techniques used Surveys to establish soil contamination Plan land uses around this (e.g. open space in least polluted areas) Identify connections needed Ecological river walls - pioneering Phasing: create the destination first (Dome, underground rail to central London, and big retail) and exemplar housing first; more housing later (large volume in the London context)
  • 13. Near Greenwich Peninsula: the Kidbrooke Development Area SPD •  Neighbourhood transformation •  Mixed use community 10,000 population •  Development framework to guide preferred development partner •  Robust testing of masterplan •  Acceptable to local stakeholders
  • 14. London 2012 Games Olympic Park Multidisciplinary engineering infrastructure design, project managing enabling works, site clearance and remediation, environmental impact assessment

  • 18. Main Stadium and existing and new wetlands
  • 19. London 2012 Games Temporary Overlay 100+ UK-wide temporary venues, building services design, civil & structural engineering, acoustics, fire, utilities infrastructure design, accessibility advice
  • 20. What might the sustainability factors be for a new urban district? 1.  Location 2.  Construction methods 3.  Energy and water use 4.  Sustainable transport options 5.  Public open space, and mixed-use communities
  • 21. Techniques and skills to plan a sustainable urban district Target-setting – for all contractors involved – a common purpose • % of building materials delivered by rail/water; • % reduction in carbon (compared to existing regulations) • % reduction in carbon from on-site renewables • % of material from demolition to be reused or recycled • % reduction in potable water use CEEQUAL assessment BREEAM / LEED
  • 22. Sustainable Neighbourhoods and Streets Oxford Circus, London
  • 23. Sustainable Neighbourhoods and Streets: Oxford Circus Existing site Intersection of two of the world’s most famous shopping streets Crowded, with many barriers to negotiate ‘A smart Londoner avoids Oxford Circus’!
  • 24. Sustainable Neighbourhoods and Streets: Oxford Circus Completed site Clutter cleared Desire lines respected Shared Space Changes to light timings High quality materials Walkable
  • 25. Play Video
  • 26. Masdar, Abu Dhabi A new carbon-neutral city – in a desert If we cannot create a comfortable walking environment, the city won’t be zero-carbon
  • 27. Techniques and skills to plan more walkable streets •  Identify the problems facing street users ●  All – safety, comfort ●  Tourists – wayfinding ●  Local workers – dissuading them from walking ●  Shoppers – dissuaded from shopping? •  Engage with them or their representatives ●  Business Improvement Districts •  Consider origins, nodes and destinations of pedestrians •  Model crowds, future changes in land uses/transport •  Integrate with the built character
  • 28. What lessons can we learn from all scales of building? •  Improving the long-term sustainability of an area is always possible ●  Set a shared vision ●  Set objectives •  Engage those who will benefit (and maybe profit) ●  Local businesses: Business Improvement Districts ●  Transport operators ●  Residents: workshops/charettes •  Early multi-skill engagement in a project ●  BREEAM / LEED •  The need for advanced modelling tools ●  Atkins Carbon Critical Masterplanning
  • 29. BREEAM® Communities BREEAM Communities is the first sustainable assessment methodology and certification standard designed specifically for the built environment that provides the necessary ‘Stewardship’ required to create a truly Sustainable Community. Launched in June 2009, there are at least 50 licensed assessors in the UK and beyond, 2 of which are in Atkins
  • 30. Assessment Categories •  CE - Climate change and energy- flooding and SUDS, heat island, water effciency, renewable energy, energy efficiency, water consumption •  COM - Community – inclusive design, consultation on the development proposal, development user guide, community management and operation of the development •  PS - Place shaping - efficient use of land, design process, form of development, open space, adaptability, inclusive communities, crime, street lighting/light pollution security lighting •  ECO - Ecology - conservation, enhancement of ecology, planting, Biodiversity Action Plan •  TRA - Transport and movement – location, public transport, parking, pedestrians and cyclists, proximity of local amenities, traffic management, car club, home zones, TA •  RES - Resources – environmental impact, locally reclaimed materials, water resource planning, refuse composting, noise pollution, construction waste •  BUS – Business and Economy - competitive business, business opportunities, employment, business types •  BLD - Buildings - EcoHomes / BREEAM or Code for Sustainable Homes

  • 32. Where do the tools fit into a development project?
  • 33. Atkins Carbon Critical Masterplanning   The tool is a custom adaptation of CityCAD™ (a viewer and trial version are free)   It provides instant and systematic identification and quantification of the carbon impacts of masterplans, whilst designing the scheme in outline   The tool is focussed on the factors which we can influence, notably:   Location and built form   The scale, range and mix of land uses   Infrastructure and associated activity especially travel and energy use   It can easily model different scenarios and options, and derive costs and plot areas
  • 34. The user interface Visually impressive interface - specifically designed to maximise ‘real world feel’ of masterplans. The user assesses a variety of low-carbon options using the analysis tools available. The user, and colleagues and clients, can watch the screen and immediately see them within a geographical context >

  • 38. General PowerPoint Guidelines (headings should not exceed two lines) ●  Is your presentation to be projected or printed? ●  What may be best for one medium, may not work as you would like in the other ●  Try to bear this in mind when creating your presentation ●  Broadly speaking a projected presentation should be well spaced and not be too ‘busy’ ●  A printed presentation can allow more content and smaller font sizes, much like you would treat a word document
  • 39. Using bullets and text in a projected presentation ●  This is a bullet slide –  This is a sub-bullet, or second text line ●  This is a second sub-bullet ●  If you are using bullets try to use no more than seven per page ●  It is better to split content over two slides than to try to squeeze too many points on one slide
