Goal 1: Use of sustainable/recycled material

  • Measure:  percentage in volume of material that is either sustainable or recycled
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: 50%
    • desired / target value: 70%
  • Strategies:
    • use at least 50% in surface area of the existing building
    • use as much wood as possible for the structure
    • use recycled steel if steel is needed
    • use low-emission concrete if concrete is needed

Goal 2: Maximize green area

  • Measure:  Green Area Ratio on the space where the building will be
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: 50%
    • desired / target value: 70%
  • Strategies:
    • green roofs
    • green areas all around the building
    • green walls

Goal 3: Reduce energy use

  • Measure: EUI, considering our building will be close to a library, EUI = 38 kBtu/sf/yr
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: reduce by 15%
    • desired / target value: reduce by 30%
  • Strategies:
    • reduce lighting by using as much natural light as possible during the day
    • orientable reflective panels on the roof
    • direct light to heat up in winter and shadow to cool down in summer
    • if no water around, add artificial lake to use evaporation to cool down the surroundings
