    LEED Supports Healthy Spaces

    Human health is a key topic for both new and existing spaces. In LEED, the Indoor Environmental Quality category addresses the myriad design strategies and environmental factors—air quality, lighting quality, acoustic design, control over one’s surroundings—that influence the way people learn, work and live.

    During this session, LEED subject matter experts will review what determines our health and how LEED addresses this, some of the EQ credits and the research that informed the credit requirements, and related project examples.

      In-Depth Seminar 
      Supporting Global Goals Locally through Green Buildings

      The United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted in 2015 to “promote prosperity while protecting the planet.” The 17 Goals are wide-ranging, challenging humanity to decouple economic growth from climate change, poverty, and inequality.

      Green building supports many of the Sustainable Development Goals by reducing waste and contributing to healthier physical environments, but also by educating, creating jobs, reducing inequalities, and strengthening communities. At this in-depth session, learn more about the UN Sustainable Development Goals, their relevance to the St. Louis-area green building industry, and how to use them to better communicate and advance partnerships.

      LEARNING OBJECTIVES

      • Describe the UN Sustainable Development Goals and their relevance to the St. Louis-area green building industry.
      • Understand how green building supports and contributes to the achievement of specific UN Sustainable Development Goals.
      • Connect specific building functions to UN Sustainable Development Goals.
      • Apply UN Sustainable Development Goals to your own projects.

      Cardinals 4 A Greener Game: St. Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Angels

      Join the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter's Emerging Professionals as they volunteer with the St. Louis Cardinals Green Team!

      Volunteers will walk down the aisles of the seating bowl in-between innings collecting recyclables from fans and promoting recycling at Busch Stadium. Volunteers are asked to arrive an hour prior to game time for a brief training session. Recycling collection begins in the 2nd inning, continues throughout the game and ends 15 minutes following the conclusion of the game.

      In exchange for your services, you're able to watch the game in standing room only sections of Busch Stadium, as collections are only done in-between innings and during pitching changes so as not to disturb fans trying to watch the game.

      All volunteers will be required to sign the Cardinals Green Team waiver form (adult waiver, minor waiver). Children 15 and under need to be accompanied by adult chaperones. Minors (17 and under) will need a parent or guardian to fill out their waiver form for them.

      The Cardinals Green Team accepts volunteers for each game at Busch Stadium. Full details about the Cardinals Green Team, including FAQs are on their website here.

      WHEN
      Friday, June 21, 6:15 pm
      Volunteers should arrive at Busch Stadium at 6:15 pm, an hour prior to game time (7:15 pm) for a brief training session.

      LEED Tour: St. Louis Community College Center for Nursing and Health Sciences

      Our Annual Green Building Tour will feature St. Louis Community College’s new Center for Nursing and Health Sciences Facility which is seeking LEED certification under the v4 rating system.

      Located on the College’s Forest Park campus, this 96,000 square feet building will serve as a state-of-the-art learning center featuring science laboratories and classrooms, dental clinics, and innovative classrooms spaces.  The Center will serve approximately 900 students in nursing and health sciences programs and will be the first new academic building constructed on the Forest Park campus in nearly 20 years.  The design team (KAI) carefully integrated the old with the new, referencing the existing buildings in masonry detail, while incorporating curtainwall, storefront, metal, and technology to tie past to present.  The design capitalizes on surrounding density and diverse uses, water use reduction, optimization of energy performance, and open space, among other items.  The construction focus is on materials and resources and indoor environmental quality.

      August 13 Program

      Net Zero Carbon, Water, and Energy + Decarbonizing at the District Level

      In partnership with ASHRAE-St. Louis Chapter.

      District scale projects and campuses lend themselves well for the goals of complete decarbonization and net zero energy and water. Depending on the project type, context, and location, these goals may also represent the best first and lifecycle cost approach. But getting there will involve navigating everything from utility rates, regulations, and connection fees, metering configurations, integrating electric vehicles, district electric and thermal technologies, managing a phasing plan, and managing ongoing operations.

      This session will start by reviewing the various definitions of net zero energy and carbon, and Zero Water and One Water, including those developed by the USGBC and ILFI. It will then provide some context in terms of integrating renewables from the built environment into the larger utility mix, addressing duck curves and evolving rate structures. Lastly, it will walk through a step by step process of evaluating district systems, moving towards a decision of onsite technologies and configurations -- including financial and incentive analysis, evaluating the potential for onsite storage, and partnering with third party entities where appropriate. It will also include best practices regarding performance management so that the project’s ultimate zero carbon and lowest life cycle cost are realized. This will include reference to 3-4 actual projects around the country in various phases of development.

      LEARNING OBJECTIVES

      •    Review definitions and challenges of Net Zero Energy, Water, and Carbon.
      •    Examine the role of the built environment in transitioning to a 100% clean energy future.
      •    Describe various utility contexts, rate structures and the changes that are taking place in the utility space.
      •  Discuss how to approach district energy and water projects from technical and economic perspectives, and the challenges and opportunities unique to these project types.

      In-Depth Seminar 
      LEED Zero and 4.1: The LEED We’ve Been Waiting For

      With the release of the LEED Zero suite of certifications (Zero Energy, Carbon, Water, and Waste), and with the evolution of LEED v4.1, we may have a series of rating systems that provide market-driving direction to lead the sustainability industry. In addition, LEED Zero finally bridges the gap between a great project (LEED Platinum) and the various definitions of Net Zero Energy (NZE) and Carbon that exist out there, and it creates alternate options for defining a great project (say, LEED Silver + NZE). They will also direct buildings to adopt solutions that are supportive of an electric grid that is taking on more and more renewable energy, and to consider their options for energy procurement, including contracting for meaningful offsite renewable resources. 

      This session will review v4.1 (BD+C) along with LEED Zero Energy and Carbon to provide an overview of the various changes, an introduction to the new tools and metrics, and will look at the applicability to a few different project types (e.g. urban high rise versus less dense and non-space constrained). It will also include a discussion and reflection of how well these rating systems capture the current need in the market or whether we should anticipate further changes in the years to come.

      Learning Objectives:

      • Identify changes in LEED v4.1
      • Examine the definitions and challenges of Net Zero Energy, Water, and Carbon
      • Discuss how LEED v4.1 and LEED Zero work for various project types
      • Learn to love LEED again!

The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
      sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
      Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
      experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.

      In-Depth Seminar 
      Intro to EcoDistricts

      Within the world of green rating systems, LEED provides a model for building-level sustainability, for single-entity controlled community developments, for campuses, and for cities, but it does not have a model for neighborhoods/districts that are undergoing major redevelopment.  EcoDistricts is a way for districts and neighborhoods to guide urban development to empower just, sustainable, and resilient neighborhoods.

      Neighborhoods and cities trying to achieve these goals can follow the EcoDistricts’ “Protocol” to take a collaborative, holistic, neighborhood-scale approach to community design to achieve rigorous, meaningful performance outcomes that matter to people and planet.

      In addition, EcoDistricts has just released a certification program to recognize those districts that have achieved the goals established through the protocol and an accreditation for people working to create and sustain EcoDistricts.

      This session will walk through the EcoDistrict Protocol, provide an introduction to the certification process and introduce the accreditation.

      LEARNING OBJECTIVES

      • Identify the fundamental goals and principles of an EcoDistrict
      • Explain the main components of the EcoDistricts Protocol
      • Apply basic concepts of an EcoDistrict in order to begin formation of an EcoDistrict
      •  Illustrate the importance of regional sustainability efforts
