Goal 1: Reduce Energy Usage

  • Measure:  EUI
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: reduce by 30%
    • desired / target value: reduce by 50%
  • Strategies:
    • passive solar design
    • use solar power
    • install occupancy sensors
    • use good insulation and windows to retain building heat

Goal 2: Use sustainable and recycled materials

  • Measure: fraction of volume of materials that are sustainable and/or recycled
  • Targets:
    • minimally acceptable value: 50%
    • desired / target value: 75%
  • Strategies:
    • use wood when possible
    • use locally and responsibly sourced materials
    • reuse or salvage building materials from off site or on site
    • select products from manufacturers who have verified improved environmental life-cycle impacts

Goal 3: Encourage healthy behavior and maximize indoor environmental quality

  • Measure: transportation footprint, percent of building lit by natural lighting, percent of airflow from natural ventilation
  • Targets:
    • reduced parking and transportation footprint by 20%
    • 50% of building lit by natural lighting
    • 30% of airflow from natural ventilation
  • Strategies:
    • ensure access to secure bike parking
    • central staircases to promote using the stairs instead of taking elevator
    • naturally ventilated spaces
    • natural lighting
