The Sustainability Workbook was designed to assist project teams in the introduction, design and implementati
strategies on all projects. In addition, this document will help assist project teams in coordinating verification t
calculators and resources to aid in achieving project goals.


It is imperative that this document begin in the early stages of a project. Starting as early as bond planning and
for discussion and understanding from all parties involved of the expectations and requirements for designing a
and energy efficient.

AASHE STARS (Sustainable Tracking, Assessment and Rating System)
This is really a broader campus-wide sustainability protocol -
Building Design and Construction is only 4 out of 200 possible credits (see http://www.aashe.org/files/documents/STARS/STARS_1.0_Credit_List.pdf).

EPAct


The Energy Policy Act (EPAct) allows for a tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foor for owners or designers of new or existing buildings that
save energy costs relative to the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2001. Partial deductions of up to $0.60 per square foot can be taken for measures
affecting any one of the theree building systems: the building envelope, lighting, or heating and cooling systems. For example, if a lighting
solution has a 40% wattage reduction vs. the 2001 ASHRAE standard, we can claim the $0.60 per square foot for lighting. If a building utilizes a
geothermal solution, we likely can claim the $0.60 per square foot for heating and cooling systems. These tax deductions are available for
systems "placed in service" from January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2013.

Full Credit
If the entire project exceeds ASHRAE 90.1-2001 by 50% then the full tax credit of $1.80 is applicable.

       Project meets 50% reduction over ASHRAE 90.1-2001

Partial Credit
If the entire project does not exceeds ASHRAE 90.1-2001 by 50% then partial tax credit may be applied based on the below criteria. Check the
appropriate box if your project meets the requirements.

Interim Lighting Rule
If the project does not meet qualify for full or partial credit, then a third option is available. This option allows for between a $0.30-$0.60 per
square foot credit by reducing the lighting power density at least 25% over ASHRAE 90.1-2001 Table 9.3.1.1 or Table 9.3.1.2 not including
allowances. The lighting must have bi-level switching and automatic shut-off provisions, meet ASHRAE 90.1-2001 Requirements, and IESNA
minimum lighting levels

       Project meets this requirement

LEED v.3

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a third party verification system that was
designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter
most; energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality,
and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to the impacts.


Rating Systems

Most projects will fall under the guidelines of LEED for New Construction or LEED for Schools. There are other options as well including Existing
Buildings: Operations & Maintanence which provides a benchmark for building owners and operators to measure operations, improvements and
maintanence.

USGBC Registration


As a member of the USGBC, SHW is elligable for the member rate for project registration. Contact Anita Lunde for membership number.

Documentation

Credit Interpretation Rulings (CIRs): This interpretation ruling allows project teams to ask questions to GBCI on intrepretation or application of
credits. The become accesible once registered, but to make a new request for a CIR the cost is substantial.
~ $500 each.

There is a two phase submission process. The project can be submitted for the DESIGN PHASE REVIEW at the end of CDs which allows you to
know if you will receive credits which are not dependant on construction activities. The CONSTRUCTION PHASE review evaluates all the
attempted credits and any new or modified design credits.

Texas CHPS


Texas CHPS (Collaborative for High Performance Schools) is a program designed for assisting school
districts and design teams in designing sustainable schools and environments.


Registration

The school district must register with CHPS to register a project. This free registration also drops the price of verifying the project.
                           CHPS Memership Registration

Project Registration

A school project has two options for recognition. The first is to design the project to CHPS standards (Design). The second option is to have the
design verified (Verified). There are two levels of verification, either Verified or Verified Leader.

Documentation

All documentation is submitted electronically through the CHPS project website.

There is a project scorecard to help with tracking of credits.
                           (Project Scorecard)
                           (CHPS Verified Program Users Guide)

The project team is giving 3 criteria interpretations for free. Most submissions take 30 days to process and respond. It cost $250 for additional
CCI’s after the initial three.
                             (CCI Database)

CHPS staff will screen all submittal prior to submission for completeness prior to review. A 3rd Party Review will be conducted by a CHPS-
           rd
approved 3 Part Assessor.

The CHPS staff will review materials for 30 days for each review period and may ask for clarification in which the team has 30 days to respond
with the correct information. There is only one round for resubmission.


The project may claim addition credits for a fee of $200 per credit.


Design Review Submission


The CHPS verification Program Scorecard and Credit Documentation (Worksheets 1-5) must be completed and submitted for screening. All items
are uploaded through the CHPS website. A complete construction drawing set must be submitted and project specification book and uploaded
to the website.

Building Reuse

Instructions
1. Complete the Structure Table by identifying all structural elements in the project and estimate the
square footage of existing structural elements and reused structural elements. The Table automatically
calculates the percentage of each structural element reused and the overall structural reuse percentage.


2. Complete the Envelope Table by identifying all envelope elements in the project and estimate the
square footage of existing envelope elements and reused envelope elements. The Table automatically
calculates the percentage of each envelope element reused and the overall envelope reuse percentage.


3. Complete the Interior Table by identifying all interior elements in the project and estimate the square
footage of existing interiors elements and reused interior elements. The table automatically calculates the
percentage of each interior element reused and the overall interior element reuse percentage.

    Water - Irrigation

    Instructions
    1. First, the evapotranspiration rate (ET0) for July is used in the calculation because this is typically the month with th
    evapotranspiration effects and therefore the greatest irrigation demands. See Evapotranspiration Table below.
    2. Next, complete the Design Case Table. List all of the landscape types included in your project. The typical lands
    in the pulldown menus. You may enter additional landscape types with appropriate coefficient values in the Species
    Microclimate Factor Charts at the bottom of this sheet.

    3. If the project uses a rainwater or condensate collection system, input the estimated volume collected for the mon
    automatically calculates the July Irrigation Water Demand for each landscape type and the July Irrigation Potable W
    See Rainwater and Condensate calculator.
    4. Repeat the above steps in the Baseline Case Table using conventional plant species and plant densities. When
    Case assumptions, do not change the overall area of the site. Planting types should approximately coorespond in bo
    cases. Calculations will be reviewed for reason based assumptions.
