Campus Crest Next - Ted Rollins (1)

  1. 1. INITIATIVE NEXT is our company’s bold commitment to the triple bottom line: a business philosophy that balances economic success with social and environmental stewardship.
  2. 2. Building Innovation • Campus Crest is committed to continually improving the way we design and construct our buildings for optimal health, comfort, efficiency, and safety. • In 2012, we completed a redesign of our prototype building (to be implemented on 2013 construction starts) to align with LEED and ENERGY STAR. • We also installed solar at select properties across our portfolio with more in the pipeline.
  3. 3. Solar Energy at The Grove • Campus Crest kicked off in 2012 with installation of two photovoltaic systems: 629 kW system (estimated to provide 40-50% of annual energy use) and a 929 kW system annual energy use at this property estimated 50-60% • Once these programs are running we will have enough to power 260 single-family homes. • These efforts are just the beginning of a company-wide goal to increase energy independence. • The prototype redesign project includes modifications to the roof design, building envelope, and HVAC systems to decrease overall energy demand and more easily support solar installations at all new developments. Benefits ENVIRONMENTAL • Decrease the overall electricity demand & impact on existing municipal utility grids Decrease demand on oil & coal production SOCIAL • Support the growing renewable energy industry, which currently only produced 7% of the total energy in the US in 2010, according to the U.S. EIA.
  4. 4. Redesigning Our Prototype • Populus, LLC conducted a plan and drawing review to align our construction details with Energy Star v3 best practices • Team members used the audit results, energy modeling, and life cycle cost estimates to evaluate and incorporate improvements. Benefits SOCIAL • Improved thermal comfort • Healthier building materials • Educational for tenants and parents ECONOMIC •Reduced operating expenses • Reduced utility overages (happier tenants) ENVIRONMENTAL • 30-40% more energy efficient • Estimated 40% reduction in water use
  5. 5. LEED for Commercial Interiors: Campus Crest Corporate Office • Campus Crest Corporate office was expanded and renovated in 2012. • With this renovation, Campus Crest signed a 10 year lease and designed for growth to minimize future construction needs for the corporate office. Benefits ENVIRONMENTAL • Decreased carbon emissions from shipping •Wood furniture, sourced from sustainably harvested forests •Materials were purchased and sourced from local manufacturers •Materials with recycled content were prioritized during purchasing SOCIAL • Alternative transportation opportunities for employees has been supported by incorporating bike racks, showers and carpool areas within the renovated facility •The employee recycling program has recycling bins at each workstation, as well as at centralized recycling stations • Signage throughout the office educates employees and visitors on the green building features
  6. 6. LEED for New Construction: The Grove Chestnut Towers • The benefit to pursuing LEED NC is the third-party verification to ensure alignment between design and construction of major HVAC and envelope innovations, which ultimately result in improved performance throughout the building life cycle. Benefits ENVIRONMENTAL •Green roof on parking will enhance local air quality, reduce heat island effect and promote biodiversity in an urban environment. • Decreased building energy demand through design results in reduced carbon emissions and less demand on existing utility infrastructure. • Development on a previously developed site ensures existing native habitat is not impacted or removed, and as a result, supports biodiversity SOCIAL • Community connectivity ensures residents have access to neighborhood services and public transportation hubs within a ½ mile of pedestrian access
  7. 7. LEED for Homes: The Grove at Fort Collins • The Grove at Fort Collins is the first Campus Crest project to pursue LEED for Homes certification. • The standards set forth by LEED, ENERGY STAR and WaterSense have been used to inform the The Grove at Ft. Collins design. • The Grove in Ft. Collins is serving as a testing ground for many of the technologies and strategies which will be incorporated into all future designs. Benefits ENVIRONMENTAL • Energy & Water Efficiency • Healthy Building Materials •Construction Waste Recycling (86% diversion by 11/1/12) SOCIAL • Serve as a model and educational tool to our students and their families
