Intent: To limit disruption, pollution of natural water flows by managing stormwater runoff. Strategy : Use alternative surfaces (e.g. pervious pavement) to reduce imperviousness, promote infiltration, reduce pollutants. Submittal : Stabilizer is pervious product Submit product tear sheet / infiltration rates. (SS) 6.1 1pt Civil Engineer Stormwater Design-Quality
Intent: To reduce heat islands to minimize impacts on microclimates and human and wildlife habitats. Strategy : Light-colored surfaces instead of blacktop. Replace surfaces with open grid paving or specify high-albedo materials. (SS) 7.1 1pt Landscape Architect Heat Island Effect – Non-roof
spec crushed stone with SRI > 29 obtain (SRI) Solar Reflectance Index of crushed stone from Stabilizer Solutions, Inc. Submittal: SS 7.1
how much light & heat is reflected from the surface scale of 0 to 100 asphalt is a 0 the higher the number, the better (SRI) Solar Reflectance Index
Test data: Infiltration Rates varies with crushed stone Infiltration rate: 1 to 5-inches per hour (average from multiple samples) total average porosity = 35% (% water space in the mix by weight) Submittal: SS 6.1, 6.2, 7.1 *
Intent: Increase demand for products with recycled content to decrease extraction of virgin materials Strategy : Establish project goal, identify suppliers Submittal : 30% post-consumer recycled content / Letter from manufacturer (MR) 4 1-2 pts Leed Professional/Owner Recycled Content
Intent: increase use of products extracted & manufactured in area, reduce transportation Strategy : Establish goal, identify suppliers for min. of 10% or 20% of the total materials value based on cost Submittal : Stabilizer makes it possible to use crushed stone material (MR) 5 1-2 pts Construction Manager Regional Materials
USGBC 500 mile radius of project CaGBC 800 km radius of product Submittal: MR 5
Intent: reduce depletion of finite raw materials and long cycle renewable materials Strategy : spec materials with harvest cycle of 10 years or fewer Submittal : Plant based product with 1 year harvest cycle / Letter from manufacturer (MR) 6 1pt Leed Professional Rapidly Renewable Materials
