Transcript of Tarentum

Site Minimized negative environmental impacts and utlized existing structure

Convenient access to public transportation; Bicycle/pedestrian access; No additional parking spaces added

Non-Roof surfaces designated to minimize urban geat island effect; white roof installed.

Exterior lighting designated to minimize light pollution

Native vegetration used throughout the site. Over 50 ash and service berry trees are a mian feature of the landscape
LEED Certification Next Steps Sustainable Sites(SS) Case Study Water Efficiency (WE) Case Study New House Residence Hall McGinnis Educational Center Indigineous plants and water-efficient landscaping requires no potable water for irrigation

Waterless urinals

Dual flush toilets

Low-flow fixtures Energy and Atmosphere (EA) Case Study Greater Pittsburgh Community Foodbank Direct Digital controls for HVAC and lighting sensor.
Heat and lighting divided into 17 operational zones

Exceeds ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-1999 by 28%

Warehouse material zoned in order to minimize use of forklift

Windows used for solar gain
Case Study
Materials and Resources (MR)
Heinz Regional History Recyclable collections

Recyclable materials ad regionally manufactured materials have been used throughout the facility

Limited finishes were used on the floors and ceilings to reduce up front resources and reduce long-term maintenance resources

Construction waste was diverted from landfills

Certified wood products which meet the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council were incorporated.
Coro Center for Civic Leadership Case Study Construction IAQ management plan

Non smoking facility

Low-emitting adhesives, paints and composite wood

One lighting control zone per 200 sf. for all areas within 15 feet of the perimeter wall

Individual controls for airflow, temperature and lighting

Exterior views from 90% of spaces

Community benefits from green and sustainable design:

people in high walkability neighborhoods achieve 50% more moderate physical activity
health care costs savings due to greater physcial activity about $92,295 annually per 1,000 people For evey $100 spent in a local business, $45 stayed in the local economy...for national businesses, only $13 remained local. Urban residents were three times more likley to be physcially active Corbet St Tarentum Borough Government
