It's easy being green - World Resources Institute

Project History? 1992 Design of Building began? 1994 Founding Dean appointed? 1997 Bond initiative passes? 1998 First Advisory Board meeting? 1998 Project was reviewed by:Rocky Mountain Institute, Southern California Edison,Santa Barbara County Innovative Building ReviewCommittee, Sustainability Project’s Green BuildingCommittee? Late 1998 Introduced to USGBC and became part of the1.0 LEED Pilot Program


Improving Energy Efficiency? Full building commissioning? Large windows throughout structure maximize daylighting? Day lighting is coupled with efficient bulbs, electronicballasts, and lighting controls (both motion/heat andambient light)? Windows in the Office Wing are interlocked to theheaters(when the window is open, the heater is automatically shut off)


Improving Energy Efficiency? The Office Wing has operable windows and an operabletransom over the door – no air conditioning? Air changes are 6 per hour in the first floor lab wing? Air changes are 8 per hour in the second floor lab wing? The fume hoods are variable air volume (VAV) and usevariable frequency drives within the mechanical system? Cooling towers received an innovation credit and arethree different sizes and stage on demand? The Bren chiller is connected to the campus chilledwater loop


Improving Energy Efficiency? We use an 85% efficient Parker Boiler? In our DOE2 energy model, we surpass Title 24by more than 31%? This summer, we will add a roof-integratedphotovoltaic system that will generate 7-10% ofthe building’s power cleanly on site? We may also be adding a fuel cell in the nearfuture


Conserving Materials/Resources? Use of local materials (350 mile radius)? Construction waste management plan(required contractor to recycle 75% of the waste; we are currently showing that 93.5%has been recycled on site)? Energy Star purchasing program? Bren School recycling program(89% of our waste is recycled per our February 2002 audit)


Conserving Materials/Resources?Reuse:? Carpet –Milliken EarthSquare?Sustainably harvested/natural:? Cork flooring? Wood paneling, furnishings, & benches? Linoleum flooring


Conserving Materials/Resources?Recycled content:? Storm drain piping (HDFE)? Fly-ash mix in the concrete? Steel/rebar/door frames/tree grates? Fireproofing material? Insulation/drywall? Ceiling tiles & grids? Wall and furnishing fabrics? Lab casework-Primeboard? Rubber flooring? Ceramic tiles/bathroom partitions/bathroom countertops? Furnishings (minimum 60% content)


Safeguarding Water? Toilets on first floor use reclaimed water? Automatic flush valves on toilets? Waterless urinals? Automatic valves on bathroom sinks? Water conserving cooling towers? Water efficient landscape/reclaimedwater for irrigation


Setting New Standards“The Bren School at UCSB is arole model for all buildings andcampuses in California.”? First building in UC system to achieve LEED status? Official Pilot Project of the University of California- Governor Gray DavisBuilding California’s Sustainable Future: A Blueprint for StateFacilities –Governor’s Executive Order D-16-00?Set precedent requiring that all new UCSB capital projects meetLEED certification (over $630 Million in Capital Projectsplanned over the next 7 years).?A “living laboratory” for high performance sustainable design andconstruction
