Three main project goals that I would like to focus on are reduced energy use, reduced indoor water use, and providing visitors with a connection to nature. I explore each of these goals in greater detail below:

Goal 1: Reduce Energy Use

  • Measure:  EUI
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: 40% reduction compared to ASHRAE 90.1 baseline
    • desired / target value: 60% reduction compared to ASHRAE 90.1 baseline
  • Strategies:
    • Optimal building orientation
    • Strategic window placement and shading to provide effective solar heat gain and daylighting
    • PV panels on site (e.g., over parking lot)

Goal 2: Reduce Indoor Water Use

  • Measure:  Gallons per Year
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: 30% reduction compared to LEED baseline
    • desired / target value: 40% reduction compared to LEED baseline
  • Strategies:
    • Rainwater collection and storage
    • Using grey water for toilets and urinals
    • Using low flow fixtures

Goal 3: Provide Visitors with a Connection to Nature

  • Measure: Green Space Ratio
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: 70%
    • desired / target value: 80%
  • Strategies:
    • Green roof
    • Green walls (interior and exterior)
