Green Building Final Presentation

  1. 1. Tom Carney Colleen Clay Brian Dale Yolanda Domneys Keith Giarrusso Bonitta Stearns-Churchill
  2. 2. What is Green/Sustainable Development? The practice of • increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use energy, water and materials, and • reducing building impacts on human health and the environment, through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal – the complete building lifecycle.
  3. 3. Why Green? National (HUD) Perspective No Requirement for “Green” but it does relate to HUD’s Policy Priorities Build’s on HUD’s 21-Point Energy Action Plan “Green/Sustainable Building” is part of the future of affordable housing.
  4. 4. The National Context • Increasing energy costs drive up development and operating costs in housing. • Much of U.S. housing stock contains environmental hazards. • Current development patterns and practices are environmentally unfriendly or wasteful.
  5. 5. Sponsorship • Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) • $95,000 to implement Green Building Tribal Assessments and Workshop • Deputy Assistant Secretary Rodger Boyd • NWONAP Administrator Ken Bowring
  6. 6. Model Approach • HUD leadership team • Assessment of existing outlines project sustainable or ‘green opportunities and building practice’ constraints • Selection of model • ONAP funds Green programs and Building pilot program outcomes providing technical • Conference to support and assistance disseminate information
  7. 7. Assessment • Interviews with Tribal Leaders in the Pacific North West to identify potential ‘best practices. • Site visits to document outcomes and identify further challenges and opportunities
  8. 8. HUD ONAP BUILDING GREEN Sustainable & Innovative Design Strategies for the Tribes of the Northwest Little Creek Casino, Shelton, Washington July 11 -13, 2006
  9. 9. Workshop Content • Community and Site Planning • Renewable Energy • The Building Envelope • Energy Efficiency • Efficient Water Use • Indoor Environmental Quality • Materials • Operations & Maintenance • Construction Waste Management Practices • Tribal Examples
  10. 10. Green Building Guidelines Meeting the Demand for Low-Energy, Resource-Efficient Homes©
  11. 11. Problem: Increased Energy Costs Increasing energy costs drive up development and operating costs in housing. US Energy Price Increase 1990 - 2000 450 420 400 350 Percent Increase 300 Coal 250 200 Natural Gas 200 150 Oil 150 100 50 0 Coal Natural Gas Oil
  12. 12. Green Building Solution Energy Efficiency • Energy Star • Building Envelope • Active and Passive Solar • Building System Engineering
  13. 13. Building Envelope
  14. 14. Indoor Environment/Energy
  15. 15. Renewable Energy
  16. 16. Green Building Solution Reduced Operating Costs • Site planning • Optimized Operations and Maintenance • Energy Star • Water Saving Plumbing Fixtures
  17. 17. Energy Star R e s id e n tia l E n e r g y U s e R e fr i d g e r a to r 14% A p p li a n c e s A ir 42% C o n d i ti o n i n g 16% Wa S pace Heat te r % 10% He in g 9 ate L ig h t r 9%
  18. 18. Optimized Operations/Maintenance
  19. 19. Problem: Environmental Hazards • Much of U.S. housing stock contains environmental hazards.
  20. 20. Green Building Solution Healthier Homes • Site planning that supports walking and transit • Mold resistant building envelope and building materials • Healthy Materials – low voc paints
  21. 21. Problem: Development Patterns Current development patterns and practices are environmentally unfriendly or wasteful.
  22. 22. Green Building Solution Minimize Environmental Impact • Site planning for resource preservation (trees, drainage, light) • Efficient water use • Recycled and recyclable building materials • Construction waste management
  23. 23. Site Planning
  24. 24. Building Materials
  25. 25. Construction Waste Management
  26. 26. Methods for Green Building • Use of sustainable building materials that emit fewer health-endangering toxins, such as carpets, paints, and mold-resistant materials. • Use of water- and energy-conserving fixtures and appliances. • Site selection that integrates into the natural environment and promotes healthy living. • Owner and resident training and education.
  27. 27. Lessons Learned • Green Building practices can be applied at all stages of the development process • Green Building Practices bring more funding partners and equity to the housing market. • Green Building has become a viable economic practice with multiple examples in affordable housing
  28. 28. Next Steps/Call to Action • Disseminate best • Promote Interagency practices among coordination ONAP regions by • Implement green replicating the building practices in conference model appropriate HUD • Incorporate green funded programs and building practices into projects Healthy Homes training
  29. 29. Thank You/Questions
