SENSORY DESIGNENGINEERINGTHE BUILDING EXPERIENCEBuildings are designed in units of feet, fahrenheit and foot candlesbut the experience they create is something personal, requiringdescriptive terms such as alertness level, comfort and meaning. BuroHappold’s work bridges the gap between occupant and technology.Our investment in sensory design research is an examination of howthe combination of lighting, thermal environment, acoustics andaromas combine to produce a building experience that leads toincreased satisfaction and more productive occupants.25


Factspercent lifetime cost ofbuilding construction10percent lifetime cost offacilities management15percent lifetime cost ofpersonnel85Sensory design research studies how an individual’ssensory experience is understood in terms of physicalparameters and the human experience, and whatthe relationship between these two are. It asks howthe ambience of the building contributes to the userexperience. In practice this means understandingwhy some buildings are easy to control, have plentyof fresh air, daylight, good acoustics and are the righttemperature at the right time while others are not.It also means understanding what the client’s needs areso that spaces are correctly specified. In understandingthe research that underpins building codes, we can alsoexcel where it is appropriate to the project.At Buro Happold we think beyond how our designaffects the construction and maintenance costs, takinginto consideration the wellbeing and productivity offuture occupants as well.EnvironmentalDomains of WellbeingPersonalEnvironmentalFunctioningEnvironmentalInterpersonalEnvironmentalExperiencingIntegrated sustainability sensory design conceptBuildings engineered by Buro Happold usingsensory design research.Right: University of Edinburgh School of InformaticsBelow: Wexford Council ReceptionPrevious page: Accenture CafeIntegrated sustainability sensory design concept26

OREGON SUSTAINABILITYCENTERThe supermodel...A partnership between three national laboratories, LawrenceBerkeley National Laboratory, National Renewable EnergyLaboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, as wellas the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA), fundedthe Commercial Building Partnership (CBP) program. A technicalexpert team consisting of Buro Happold and HOK has been createdto design and develop a set of energy efficient, market-readybuilding solutions for the Oregon Sustainability Center (OSC) andthe Clark Atlanta University Center (CAUC). The idea was to developnet carbon zero building design solutions that could be widelydeployed throughout the US commercial building sector.31


A bifacial PV ‘sail’ and shading elements generatesufficient renewable power to offset 100% of thebuilding’s annual carbon emissions.Facade optimization analysis was conducted tofind the optimal balance between solar control anddaylight ingress.Shallow plan floor plates maximize potential fornatural ventilation and daylight harvesting.As part of the collaboration, we developed anddetermined practical and cost effective designmeasures to achieve energy reduction goals andtargets. In the case of the Oregon SustainabilityCenter, our team set out to design a building withthe target of achieving net zero energy use.With these targets in mind, we deployed ourvast experience in the design and delivery oftrend setting low energy buildings, includingapplication of state of the art daylight, thermal,and computational fluid dynamics modeling. Ourongoing role will extend not only through thedesign development phase of the project but alsothrough construction oversight and critical postoccupancy evaluations.32

morphosis STUDIOThe Morphosis Studio uses Monodraught®Windcatchers, the first ever installation inthe United States.The new 11,600 square foot building is a two story openplan office space with meeting rooms, a mezzanine level,and a workshop. Sustainability features include maximizednatural ventilation combined with night purge coolingutilizing the building thermal mass and an expandablephotovoltaic system. During hot summer days, the buildingcan be conditioned through a low velocity displacementventilation system bringing cooled air through a raisedfloor plenum.The open plan workspace and mezzanine are naturallyventilated, while the shop, conference room, kitchenand ancillary spaces are mechanically ventilated. Naturaldaylight is maximized through the open plan workspaceand with the use of 23 skylights with integrated lightfixtures and daylight sensors. A 62.4 mega watt hourphotovoltaic array offsets about half of the project’s grossenergy consumption. Further improvements in energysavings, along with the possibility of additional PV panelswill get Morphosis closer to their goal of net-zero energy.35

“Weelect to work with Buro Happold because they are sensitive to our designintentions and sustainability is always present in their thinking and decisionmaking. The goals and expectations of the project are first and foremost in theirmind, and as such, they are great teammates and leaders throughout the entiredesign process.”Kim GrovesPrincipal, Morphosis37


sustainabilitySustainability: it’s a big word with a lot of meanings. Butat Buro Happold it means facilitating enduring goalsfor clients in the midst of complex worldwide changes:resource scarcity, urbanization, population growth,demographic change and the need to reduce the impactof climage change. Those challenges require more fromthe engineer - thinking and working in fields much widerthan materials and technology.SAVINGWATER39


perot museum of natureand scienceThe Perot Museum of Nature and Science achieved LEED Goldcertification and fulfills the museum’s mission to “inspire mindsthrough nature and science”.Formed by the merger of three museums, the 5 story 180,000 square foot Morphosisdesignedbuilding serves as the new home for the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.A comprehensive water recycling strategy was incorporated into the building design, allowingstorm water run-off from the site and condensate from mechanical equipment to be divertedinto two cisterns, which in turn treat water to varying levels and degrees depending on the useand nature. These cisterns are interlocked to allow intelligent water sharing, allowing the useand re-distribution of water throughout the site.A building dash port using BMS trending and metering data is used to educate visitors onthe various uses of the recycled water; while visually, using two distinctive water features,visitors will be able to see the movement of storm water from the building to the cisterns. Thisrecycling strategy met 100% of the buildings irrigation needs and generated 70% potablewater savings for sewage conveyance.41

transbay transit centerThe Transbay Transit Center is our largestcommission undertaken in the bay area.As a multi-modal transit hub the Transbay Transit Center, situated indowntown San Francisco, will serve as the terminus for the futureCalifornia High Speed Rail Link, providing bus, rail, and light rail systemsthroughout California. Alongside transportation facilities, the TransbayTransit Center will house retail and entertainment functions as well as a5.4 acre rooftop park.47


“...invaluablein creating and evaluating innovative and cost effectivesolutions for comfort ventilation, natural day lighting, energy optimization,and solar impacts...their efforts have been instrumental in exceeding theclient’s goal of a LEED Silver rating for the facility...Randolph J. VolenecSenior Project Manager, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects”The first phase of the project is to create a new 5 storyTransit Center with one above grade bus level, groundfloor concourse and two below grade rail levels.To regulate temperature and achieve comfortconditions for 95% of the year, natural ventilationcombined with night-time cooling of the buildingthermal mass and automatic motorized windows isutilized in the grand hall, along with a peak loppingradiant floor which provides relief for extremetemperature periods. Through design of the roofdeck, 100% daylighting was achieved in the GrandHall, while on the Bus Deck level, 100% daylightingwas achieved using solar tubes that directed sunlightdown from the roof park. Fixed openings on thefacade, along with 14’ de-stratification fans, providenatural ventilation along with regulating carbonmonoxide from bus exhaust. To address all aspectsof water conservation, a holistic water managementsystem was incorporated to store and reuse stormwater, as well as reduce total potable water use in theTransit Center by half.The Transbay Transit Center project will strive toachieve LEED Gold certification.48
