Berkeley HOME Program - EE in HOME Workshop

  1. 1. City of Berkeley Greening the City’s HOME Program for Energy Efficient and Sustainable Development Prepared by Roger Asterino, City of Berkeley Housing Department, and Alice La Pierre, Office of Energy & Sustainable Development
  2. 2. Greening the City’s HOME Program City’s Housing Trust Fund Process 1. Pre-development 2. Housing Trust Fund Application 3. Review of HTF Applications 4. Award and Contract 5. Construction 6. Project Completion HTF sources includes HOME, CDBG, Redevelopment, Mitigation Fees, and General Funds; the largest source is now the HOME Program.
  3. 3. Greening the City’s HOME Program Land Development Process 1. Site Selection 2. Feasibility & Site Analysis 3. Potential Engineering Reports & Studies 4. Site, Conceptual, and Schematic Designs 5. Acquisition 6. Plan Submission and Permitting 7. Construction Bid 8. Construction and Completion
  4. 4. Greening the City’s HOME Program How the City Incorporates Energy & Sustainability Into the Land Development Process • During the Housing Trust Fund Application Process (HTF staff coordinates with the City’s Office of Energy & Sustainable Development) • During the Design and Permitting Process • During the Construction Process
  5. 5. Greening the City’s HOME Program What Does it Result in? • More Energy Efficient and Greener Building Products in Affordable Housing Developments • Lower Operating Costs for the Owner • Better Living Environments for the Tenants • Lower Utility Costs for the Owner and/or the Tenants
  6. 6. Greening the City’s HOME Program Financing Pressures & Underwriting can work against the Greening Process • Cost Difference between Standard & Green Items • Value Engineering • Construction Cost Increases • Change Orders • Institutional and/or Lenders’ desires to keep costs and amount of financing at a minimum
  7. 7. GREENING YOUR HOME AND OTHER FUNDING SOURCES TURNING YOUR PROGRAM GREEN 1. Each Project is Different. 2. Review all funding sources for each project. 3. Has the project used any other incentives? 4. Know the various green groups which consult and advise.
  8. 8. GREENING YOUR HOME AND OTHER FUNDING SOURCES 5. Add a commonly used “green checklist” into the application process. www.stopwaste.org/ 6. Know who provides funding incentives. 7. Know the energy and sustainable items and issues which your locality or agency wants to implement. 8. Consider adding funding to the development for including these green and/or energy efficient items.

Energy Efficient Systems & Green Building Materials • The David Brower Center will be a LEED Constructed Building Oxford Plaza/Residential • Radiant Floor Heating • Natural Linoleum and Recycled Carpeting • Low VOC Paints • Energy Star Appliances and High Efficiency Lighting • Hot Water Partially Provided by a Solar Hot Water Panel Collection System • Will Exceed Title 24 Energy Standards by over 15% • Transit oriented location
  15. 15. City of Berkeley’s Green Building Requirements http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/sustainable
  16. 16. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Mandatory Measures Optional Measures Programs and Incentives
  17. 17. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Architect, Berkeley’s Process Developer and/or Owner Design Team, Developer and/or Owner – Decision-Makers – Post site selection, programming and budget, in rough design phase while project is still flexible
  18. 18. Greening the City’s HOME Program This is where Land Development Process you should implement the 1. Site Selection Green ideas for your 2. Feasibility & Site Analysis project 3. Potential Engineering Reports & Studies 4. Site, Conceptual, and Schematic Designs 5. Acquisition 6. Plan Submission and Permitting 7. Construction Bid 8. Construction and Completion
  19. 19. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Architect, Berkeley’s Process: Developer and/or Owner A. Green Building Consultation Required in Planning Phase Applicants for projects that: • (1) require a Use Permit or Green Building Administrative Use Permit and Consultation • (2) involve demolition or construction are required to consult with a green building expert provided for by the Berkeley’s Best Builders Program PRIOR TO submitting the permit application. There is no charge to the developer for this consultation service, provided by a grant from Alameda County Waste Management through Build It Green www.BuilditGreen.org
  20. 20. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Architect, Berkeley’s Process: Developer and/or Owner B. Green Building Checklist -- Required in Planning and Construction Phases Green Building Large Scale Development Consultation Projects and new buildings with one or more dwelling unit are OPTIONAL: required to complete a Green Non-Energy Building Checklist and update it Green Building Green Building throughout the project. Measures Checklist (recycled content, Checklist includes energy efficient etc. toward and green materials, such as Green Point Rated or recycled content or renewable LEED certification) materials, or non-conventional, healthy building materials such as non-VOC paints and finishes. Also includes credit for site choices, such as close to public transportation, shopping, and services.
  21. 21. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Architect, Berkeley’s Process: Developer and/or Owner C. Energy Conservation Analysis – Required in Planning and Construction Phases D. Conservation Measures – Green Building Required in Plan Check Phase Consultation a. Residential projects: Any home or apartment building undergoing OPTIONAL: renovations valued at $50,000 or Non-Energy more must comply with RECO Green Building Green Building Measures (Residential Energy Conservation Checklist (recycled content, Ordinance.) etc. toward b. Commercial projects: Any Green Point Rated or commercial building undergoing LEED certification) renovations valued at $50,000 or more, or that will increase Energy Analysis conditioned floor area by more and MANDATORY energy than 10%, must comply with Efficiency efficiency measures CECO (Commercial Energy Measures Conservation Ordinance.) included in plans and (required) installed onsite
  22. 22. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Architect, Berkeley’s Process: Developer and/or Owner RECO – Energy and water efficiency measures installed and verified in Green Building field by Building Inspectors Consultation OPTIONAL: Non-Energy Green Building Green Building Measures Checklist (recycled content, etc. toward Green Point Rated or LEED certification) Energy Analysis and MANDATORY energy Efficiency efficiency measures Measures included in plans and (required) installed onsite
  23. 23. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development • Current Residential • Toilets -- 1.6 gal/flush, or flow reduction devices • Showerheads -- 3.0 gal./minute flow rate Energy Conservation • Faucet aerators -- 2.75 gal./minute flow rate for Ordinance (RECO) kitchens and bathrooms • Water heater blankets -- Insulation wrap of R-12 measures are value prescriptive; these are • Hot & Cold Water Piping -- Insulate the first two feet from the heater to R-3 value the Code MINIMUMS. • Hot Water Piping in Pumped, Re-circulating Heating Systems -- Insulate all pipes to R-3 value • Exterior Door Weather stripping -- Permanently affix weather stripping, and door sweeps or door shoes • Furnace duct work -- Seal duct joints add insulation wrap to R-3 value • Fireplace chimneys -- Dampers, doors or closures • Ceiling insulation -- Insulate to R-30 value or greater • Common Area Lighting (multi-unit buildings) – must be 25 lumens or more per watt
  24. 24. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Green Building Ideas for Affordable Housing – Water-Efficient central plumbing (not tankless, not recirculating) – Insulate hot water pipes using the 1:1 rule – Daylighting features (sufficient overhangs for your latitude; white glass skylights – not in the bedrooms, though!) – Increase attic insulation – Thicker walls, more insulation (fewer studs, less material, lower costs) Reduces heating & AC operating costs
  25. 25. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Green Building Ideas for Affordable Housing – Verify in the field! – Hire accredited professionals who know “performance contacting” (CBPCA professionals, HERS raters, Green Point Raters, etc.) – Air-Seal around all plumbing inlets, electrical boxes, overhead lighting, and interior chases – Seal and insulate ductwork; pressure test!
  26. 26. Energy Efficiency Guidelines for New Development Green Building Ideas for Affordable Housing – Take advantage of utility rebates and any tax credits (www.pge.com; www.ebmud.com; www.irs.gov) – Questions?
