2 Best Practice The Eastern Regional Association of Physical Plant Administrators (ERAPPA) is a Registered Provider with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems. Credit earned on completion of this program will be reported to CES Records for AIA members. Certificates of Completion for non-aia members are available on request. This program is registered with the AIA/CES for continuing professional education. As such, it does not include content that may be deemed or construed to be an approval or endorsement by the AIA of any material of construction or any method or manner of handling, using, distributing, or dealing in any material or product. Questions related to specific materials, methods, and services will be addressed at the conclusion of this presentation.

3 Learning Objectives Upon completion of this program you will be able to: 1. Demonstrate successful approaches to achieving LEED certification in a campus setting. 2. Identify which cost effective green building strategies were used to achieve LEED credits. 3. Understand how synergies between green building strategies create more cost effective designs. 4.

25 WHAT WORKED Burlington County College Culinary Arts Center The design emerged out of a process of design charrettes with the owner and full project team The site chosen for the new facility is easily accessible with access to established transportation networks Increased insulation levels in the building envelope reduces the building s heating and cooling load Energy recovery reduces energy use and cost

26 PROJECT IMPACT Burlington County College Culinary Arts Center The public spaces are well-used by the Community. The building has helped unify Mt Holly s historic district The building s LEED Certification is viewed as a mark of excellence for the building and program Building energy costs are reasonable for the type of high energy use typically associated with restaurant operations

27 WHAT WORKED Philadelphia University SEED Center Reuse of an existing building reduced project cost and construction time Extensive controlled daylighting improves quality of the studio spaces Air sealing and increased insulation in walls and roof A measurement and verification plan was implemented Exposed systems and materials serve as teaching tools for the sustainable design and interior design programs

28 PROJECT IMPACT Philadelphia University SEED Center The studio spaces are well liked by the students The building functions as a teaching tool for the sustainable design and environmental studies programs The project took an under performing asset on Campus and turned it into a center for Sustainable design The project s LEED Certification was the University s first demonstration of its commitment to sustainable building design on Campus

29 WHAT WORKED Rider University North Hall Building orientation allows for good daylighting opportunities Porous pavement and vegetated roof areas manage stormwater loads High Performance Building Envelope High performance lighting Durable materials reduce maintenance effort and cost

30 PROJECT IMPACT Rider University North Hall Comfortable, daylit classrooms improves student attention and learning Faculty like teaching in the building The accessible vegetated roof areas serve as an effective teaching tool Building energy costs are less than other buildings on campus on a per square foot basis The LEED Certification is a visible reminder of the Universities commitment to sustainability

31 WHAT WORKED Rider University West Village Student Housing Successfully limited site disturbance during construction Panelized construction using structural insulated panels Good building envelope Large window areas provide abundant natural light and help reduce lighting energy costs Durable materials reduce maintenance efforts and cost Good IAQ contributes to student health and well-being which can improve academic performance

32 PROJECT IMPACT Rider University West Village Student Housing The overall design and green building features have made these resident halls the most desirable on campus The project (Rider s first) demonstrated that a well performing green building could be achieved within tight budgets The green features of this project have been incorporated into curriculum for the Sustainability Minor program offered by the University

33 Committed to Sustainability Rider signs President s Climate Commitment with goal to make University Climate Neutral by 2050 Rider hires a Sustainability Manager Rider creates student eco-reps positions Holds a National Campus Sustainability Day event Rider completes its first greenhouse gas inventory Service provider Aramark joins effort to green campus food service Rider creates a sustainability grants program

34 Committed to Sustainability Conducts a food waste audit 3 green courses added to curriculum Green Film Series Inaugurated Rider completes Carbon Neutrality Plan Rider University listed in the Princeton Review as one of greenest Colleges in U.S. Rider expands Sustainability Department within Facilities Facilities Implement Green Maintenance practices 2 nd greenhouse gas inventory completed Eco-Reps start electronic recycling Aramark starts food recycling

35 Committed to Sustainability G0 Green PSA Contest Rider receives: Waste Management of NJ 2011 Environmental Stewardship Award Students start organic garden Third year Rider is listed in the Princeton Review as one of greenest Colleges in U.S. Sustainable Studies Minor offered University teams with Better World Books on textbook recycling Sustainable curriculum courses expand to Communications Department Bicycle use increases, more bike infrastructure installed on campus. Planning for Bike Share program begins Rider partners with PSE&G for a 770KW solar installation Sustainable curriculum courses expand to Sociology Department

36 Committed to Sustainability Eco Reps provide green orientation for incoming freshmen class Westminster College Campus recognized by Tree Campus USA Fifth year Rider is listed in the Princeton Review as one of greenest Colleges in U.S. Sustainable Studies Minor grows to 24 students in just 2 years Successful organic garden program expands to Westminster Campus 7,000 lbs. of clothing collected and recycled during academic year University Tri-Generation Plant comes online University launches successful pilot with Terracycle to collect used health and beauty products Rider Magazine dedicates Spring issue to Sustainability on Campus

37 Incorporating Sustainability Into Facilities Management Capital Projects Green Cleaning Food Composting Bottle-fill Water Stations Building and Lighting Controls Organic Fertilizers Bio fuels for vehicles Updating campus standards Using environmentally preferred products

38 Incorporating Sustainability Into Campus Community University offers a Sustainable Studies Minor 29 sustainability courses across many disciplines Eco-Reps as student ambassadors for the environment Self-guided green tour of Campus Green film & speaker series Green PSA contest Annual student-led recycling programs Student managed organic garden and bee hives

39 Does it Make Sense to Start With Green Buildings? Green buildings are a major statement and could be a major investment Sustainability best achieved through incremental progress is a new building project the right place to start? Starting with operations and maintenance can be more cost effective than starting with new construction Do green buildings perform as predicted? Good capital planning can leverage funds to invest in green building improvement Should you focus on performance or the plaque?
