Workshop group project I participated in during a Sustainability Workshop I took at UIUC


  • 1. Luke Bailey, Rebecca Carroll, Paul Cheng, Vinod Kadu,Allison McSherry, Toni Pestillo, Michael Rizzitiello

2. About the project Purpose Why its important 3. Goals Stormwater 4. Goals Potable water 5. Goals Energy 6. Goals Transportation 7. Goals Social systems and demographics 8. Goals Buildings 9. Results from charrette 10. About the portal http://www.leam.illinois.edu/1streetcorridor/ 11. Overall site design 12. North district Retrofit ExistingNeighborhoods. New Construction (InfillDevelopment) Green Infrastructure 13. North District Rain Barrels Bioswales Green Roofs (Police Storm water Planters Dept) Promote micro-level Rain Gardens sustainable practices(low flow fixtures,occupancy sensors, etc) 14. North District: New Construction Single-Family Residential- Promote Infill Single-Family Residential Housing in the neighborhood located northeast of First and University. New Construction based on sustainable urbanism concepts. Commercial - Commercial uses will be along University Avenue corridor. Additional light commercial opportunities will be highlighted along North First Street. (i.e. Storage Units, etc.) Cul-de-Sacs 15. North District-Green Infrastructure Green Alleyways Permeable Pavements for Parking Energy Efficient Lighting Boneyard Creek Greenway Extension Railroad ROW Greenway 16. Middle district 17. South district Retrofitting Existing Neighborhoods FIRST STREET New ConstructionGREEN STREET Green Infrastructure 18. South district: Retrofitting Existing Neighborhoods Rain Barrels Low flow fixtures Green Roofs Energy star appliances Rain gardens Occupancy sensors 19. South district: New Construction Mixed Use Retail New mixed use construction will be located along Green Street and First Street, to connect the campus town and downtown Champaign retail districts. Residential The new residential neighborhood will be located south of Green Street. This will occupy the former concrete plant site. The neighbor design will be based around ideas of community and sustainable urbanism. 20. South district: Green Infrastructure Green Alleyways Permeable Pavement for Parking Efficient Lighting 21. South district: Green Infrastructure - Alleyways Technique 1: Alley Drainage All alleys will be properly graded and pitched to allow water to run to the center of the alley and then flow to the street. This prevents the need for additional sewer infrastructure and prevents adjacent properties from flooding. 22. South district: Green Infrastructure - Alleyways Technique 2: Permeable Pavement Reduces the rate and quantity of stormwater runoff Reduces stress on the sewer system Recharges ground water Impermeable Pavement Permeable Pavement Filters silt, pollutants and debris 23. South district: Green Infrastructure - Alleyways Technique 3: High Albedo Pavement A pavement material that is light in color and reflects sunlight away from the surface. Less heat is radiated by thepavement. Reduces the urban heat island effect.High Albedo Pavement Conventional Pavement This reduces cooling costs, helps thesurvival of urban vegetation, andimproves air quality. 24. South district: Green Infrastructure - Alleyways Technique 4: RecycledConstruction MaterialsPavement produced Recycled concrete aggregate can beusing slag, recycledused in the concrete mix and as a concrete and/or groundtire rubberbase beneath surface paving. Slag, a by-product of steelproduction, can be used as acomponent of the concrete mix,reducing industrial waste. Ground tire rubber can be used inporous asphalt and reclaimed asphaltpavement in nonporous asphalt. Benefits: Reduces waste hauled to landfills Reduces the need to extract naturalresources Sub-base containing Develops new technologies and saves recycled concretemoney 25. South district: Green Infrastructure - Alleyways Technique 5: Dark Sky Compliant Light Fixtures Light fixtures are specially designed to direct light downward, focusing light where its needed. These fixtures can also incorporate the latest technologies in energy efficiency while maintaining adequate light levels. Conventional Lighting Dark Sky Compliant Fixture 26.
