Metalcon 2009

  1. 1. Sustainable Design Ideas using Metal Metalcon 2009
  2. 2. Sustainability <ul><li>Sustainability </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Considering social, environmental and economic impacts of your actions. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sustainable Design </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Design that seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment and the health and comfort of building occupants thereby improving building performance. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Did you know? <ul><li>The built environment has a profound impact on our natural environment, economy, health and productivity. </li></ul><ul><li>In the United States, buildings account for: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>36% of total energy use/65% of electricity consumption. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>30% of greenhouse gas emissions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>30% of raw materials use </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>30% of waste output/136 million tons annually </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>12% of potable water consumption </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Now what? <ul><li>Design buildings that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce Carbon Emissions/Footprint </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Help to reduce Urban Heat Island </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Help to Reduce Peak Energy Demand </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Include Sustainable materials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ensure you can monitor Performance using Green products. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Metal Roofing
  6. 6. NORTH AMERICA'S MOST RECYCLED MATERIAL <ul><li>Steel </li></ul><ul><ul><li>More steel is recycled each year than all other materials combined. Two out of every three pounds of new steel are produced from old steel. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It has an average recycling rate in excess of 50 percent since World War II and over 60 percent since 1970. Last year, over 67 million tons of steel scrap were recycled in the United States. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. NORTH AMERICAN STEEL INDUSTRY COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY <ul><li>Operate their business in an efficient and financially sustainable way in order to supply steel products and solutions that satisfy their customers and add value to stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>Optimize the eco-efficiency of their products through life cycle, including increased resource and energy efficiency in the production of steel and during the use of steel products. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>They are committed to the promotion of the recovery, reuse and recycling of steel products through their support of the Steel Recycling Institute. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Foster the health and safety of employees in the steel industry and provide healthy, safe and environmentally sound products. </li></ul><ul><li>Build on their knowledge of sustainability and willingly share it with others. They will be open and active in their communications and help steel companies and organizations with the supply chain to implement sustainable practices. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Sustainable Steel <ul><li>Steel construction materials contain at least 28 percent recycled steel and are completely recyclable. </li></ul><ul><li>Using steel takes the pressure off renewable resources: a typical 2000-square-foot home requires about 40 to 50 trees, about an acre’s worth, to build with wood. </li></ul><ul><li>With steel, only the equivalent of about six scrapped automobiles are needed. </li></ul>
  9. 9. From this
  10. 10. To this
  11. 11. COOL METAL ROOFING How it works!
  12. 12. What is Cool Metal Roofing? <ul><li>Metal Roofing is Cool </li></ul><ul><li>Cool metal roofing is a family of sustainable, energy efficient roofing products comprised of unpainted metal and prepainted metal. </li></ul><ul><li>It is available in a wide variety of finishes, colors, textures, and profiles for steep-slope and low-slope applications. </li></ul>
  13. 13. How Cool Metal Roofs works Solar Reflectance Emmitance
  14. 14. Cool Metal Roofing <ul><li>Cool Metal Roofing is Highly Reflective – using Pigment Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Metal roofing meets the EPA Energy Star Roof Products Program performance criteria. Metal roofing is also eligible for other cool roof incentive programs. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Cool Metal Roof Vocabulary <ul><ul><li>Reflectivity – a measure of the portion of solar radiation that is reflected away from a surface </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Emissivity - the capacity of a body to re-emit infrared energy that has already been absorbed </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. New IR Pigments = Less Heat = Energy Savings SR = 14% SR = 26%
  17. 17. GA School board saves! <ul><li>Two identical buildings with same exposure, no shading. </li></ul><ul><li>Thermostat control at board office. </li></ul><ul><li>Only One variable: </li></ul><ul><li>Both schools used same color: Forest Green </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One roof has a TSR of 12% – </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>One roof has TSR of 29% – energy star approved. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NET SAVINGS: $ 8200.00 per year </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expected life of the roof – 45 years – </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Realized savings of $ 369,000 over its useful life with no required maintenance to the roof! </li></ul></ul>
  18. 18. Reduce Urban Heat Island!
  19. 19. Life Expectancy <ul><li>Based on a study conducted by Ducker in 2003, metal roofs have a significantly longer expected service life than either asphalt or single-ply roofs. According to Ducker findings, metal roofs are expected to last 17 years longer than asphalt and 20 years longer than single-ply. </li></ul><ul><li>Expected Roof Life Years </li></ul><ul><li>Metal: 40 </li></ul><ul><li>Asphalt:23 </li></ul><ul><li>Single-ply:20 </li></ul><ul><li>Due to its credible long life and documented durability, metal roofing makes an attractive investment. </li></ul>
