    Overview

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Many considerations go into developing communities and building homes. One of the ideas to emerge recently is the idea of Green building. The focus of green building is to reduce the environmental effects of the building process. Green building includes using environmentally friendly materials and construction techniques. It also includes design decisions that reduce energy and resource use over the life of the house. A well-built green structure can be a win-win situation. Homeowners can get a well-designed, well-built structure that also has lower utility bills and helps the local economy.

    Why Build Green?

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Limit waste of materials (Requires more planning)Use recycled materialsUse local materials and laborHarness renewable and inexhaustible energy such as utilizing the sunMinimize the use of energyReuse (Rain water / Grey Water systems)Minimize carbon foot printUse appropriate techniquesKeep green space

    What is Sustainability?

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Reduces the negative impact on the environment and human health, thus improving the performance during a buildings life cycle. Careful consideration is given to water, energy, building materials, and solid waste

    Sustainable Design

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Economy of Resources - Reduce, recycle, and reuse natural resources

    Life Cycle Design - Structured methodology for the building process

    Humane Design - Harmony between humans and nature

    Sustainable Building Life Cycle

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Site selection, building design, and building material processes, up to but not including installation. Examine the environmental consequences of the structures design, orientation, impact on the landscape, and materials used

    Pre-Building Phase

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Construction and operation processes reduce the environmental impact of resource consumptionLong-term health effects of the building environment on its occupants are considered

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

    Building Phase

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Old materials become resources for other buildings or waste to be returned to nature. The sustainable design strategy focuses on reducing construction waste by recycling and reusing packaging and excess material.

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

    Post-Building Phase

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • An architect should minimize the impact of a building on its local ecosystem (e.g., existing topography, plants, and wildlife).

    Preservation of Natural Conditions

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • A buildings design should enhance the work and home environments. This can improve productivity, reduce stress, and positively affect health and well being.

    Energy Conservation

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Less energy in transportationPromotes local economyUse local laborLabor intensive work means less use of energy

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

    Why Use Local Resources?

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • Planet QualityWhen certified you will receive tax creditsSave money on heating and coolingSave on utilitiesGenerally lasts longerNormally more expensive at first but saves money in the long run

    Whats in it for You?

    2011 International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, STEMCenter for Teaching and Learning Foundations of Technology

  • There are several non-profit organizations that provide services for planning, constructing, and grading green construction techniques Do your researchLEED is the organization that certifies green homes.
