  5. 6. Palm Healthcare CARES <ul><li>The process of the design and creation of the structure and it’s subsequent use does the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces Toxic Pollution and Waste </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Conserves Resources and Habitats </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces Global Warming </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces Ozone Depletion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increases the Health and Well-being of Employees, Visitors and the Surrounding Community. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>Each year, buildings in the US consume approximately 37% of the energy and 68% of the electricity produced in the US. </li></ul><ul><li>5 Billion gallons of potable water is used per day </li></ul><ul><li>to flush toilets by commercial building occupants. </li></ul><ul><li>Building related sickness may cost between </li></ul><ul><li>$60 and 400 billion per year. </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Efficient Buildings may reduce harmful carbon dioxide production by 50% . </li></ul><ul><li>People spend as much a 90% of their time indoors. </li></ul>
  7. 8. LEED™ is Leadership in Environment Engineering and Design. <ul><li>The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) is a not for profit organization founded in 1993 with a goal of improving the world by helping to lessen the impact of construction upon the environment and our natural resources. </li></ul><ul><li>The USGBC created the LEED point-based certification process and it has become the most respected, national accreditation and certification process. </li></ul>
  8. 9. LEED Certified buildings are required to meet 7 prerequisites and are graded through the use of 34 credits including a total of 69 possible points.
  9. 10. LEED™ is Leadership in Environment Engineering and Design. <ul><li>The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) is working to transform the way buildings and communities are </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>designed </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>built </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>operated </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 11. Building Certification <ul><li>According to the USGBC, the LEED awards green buildings with certification levels based upon a points system ranging from basic Certification (26 points) to Platinum (52-69) points. </li></ul><ul><li>Certified </li></ul><ul><li>Silver </li></ul><ul><li>Gold </li></ul><ul><li>Platinum </li></ul>
  11. 12. The Green Environment <ul><li>Do you know that experts have found that people working in healthier, more comfortable spaces are more productive. In fact people in Green Buildings have been found to be as much as 16 % more productive. </li></ul>
  12. 13. LEED Certification
  13. 14. It all began in the design process in 2006
  14. 15. Here’s How We Did It <ul><li>Here’s how we created a green building </li></ul><ul><li>and what we did to help the environment. </li></ul>
  15. 16.  Sustainable Sites <ul><li>Sustainable Site credits are intended to minimize the impact to the natural world through promoting redevelopment of sites and lessoning the impact on farmlands, habitats and waterways, while encouraging enhanced connectivity to the existing urban landscape. </li></ul>
  16. 17.  Sustainable Sites <ul><li>To minimize the impact to the urban environment the site selected for this project is close to buses and includes alternative transportation: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Public Transportation: close to bus routes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bicycles: bike racks, showers and lockers provided on site. </li></ul></ul>
  17. 18.  Sustainable Sites <ul><li>Palm Healthcare has provided 12 preferred parking spots the that are dedicated to Low Emission Vehicles and Carpooling. </li></ul>The goal is a reduction in vehicles on the road and less pollution in our air from automobiles.
  18. 19.  Sustainable Sites <ul><li>Other important features: </li></ul><ul><li>We used a special roofing material that reflects the sun’s rays instead of absorbing the heat. </li></ul><ul><li>We carefully chose interior and exterior light fixtures to control how much light is used, how far it shines and its impact on the surroundings. </li></ul>
  19. 20. Water is a precious resource. <ul><li>How water aware are you? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Brushing your teeth with normal use uses 2-5 gallons of water. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wet, brush and rinse only uses ½ gallon. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Washing your hands with running water uses 2 gallons. Filling a basin uses 1 gallon. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A full tub uses 25-40 gallons. Shallow water level uses 10 gallons. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Shaving with running water uses 20 gallons. Filling a basin uses 1 gallon. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 21.  Water Efficiency <ul><li>Water Efficiency points are earned by reducing the amount of water that is required in two primary areas </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To maintain xeriscape landscape plantings on site </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To operate the building with low flow toilets. </li></ul></ul>
  21. 22.  Water Efficiency <ul><li>We installed a 8,500 gallon underground cistern and xeriscaping plant design [low water needs] on site. </li></ul><ul><li>Once the plants have been established, only water collected from the roof will be used to irrigate the landscaping on our property. </li></ul>
  22. 23.  Energy and Atmosphere <ul><li>Energy and Atmosphere points are gained through designing buildings that do the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Efficiently use electricity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use on-site renewable energy and green power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Protect the atmosphere from harmful pollutants </li></ul></ul>
  23. 24.  Energy and Atmosphere <ul><li>Our strategies included: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Extremely Efficient Air Conditioning Equipment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of Solar Power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Insulated Windows </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intelligent Use of Daylight </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy Saving Light Fixtures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and Controls </li></ul></ul>
  24. 25.  Energy and Atmosphere <ul><li>We used the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A more efficient Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning [HVAC] system. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Controls on the light fixtures that are activated by motion detectors – they turn off automatically when the room is unoccupied. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Double paned reflective glass in the windows </li></ul></ul>
  25. 26.  Energy and Atmosphere <ul><li>Through the use of efficient lighting and air conditioning equipment, Our facility will utilize 21% less electricity than the typical building of similar size. </li></ul>The Photovoltaic panels on the roof provide 5,400 watts of power to the building systems .
  26. 27.  Material and Resources <ul><li>Material and Resources credits are earned by minimizing reliance on virgin resources. </li></ul><ul><li>More than 2.5 % of project materials are rapidly renewable – like the use of bamboo. </li></ul><ul><li>Over 77% of the construction </li></ul><ul><li>waste was diverted from </li></ul><ul><li>the landfill. </li></ul>
  27. 28.  Material and Resources <ul><li>Designated areas are provided for collecting recyclable materials </li></ul><ul><li>The glass from the </li></ul><ul><li>existing building </li></ul><ul><li>was recycled. </li></ul>
  28. 29.  Material and Resources <ul><li>Over 20% of the material used on the project came from recycled material. </li></ul><ul><li>Like the terrazzo floor… </li></ul><ul><li>More than 12% of the materials </li></ul><ul><li>used on the project came </li></ul><ul><li>from within 500 miles of the project </li></ul>
