The Campus Green: Immersive Integrated Design on Campus
Emory University in Atlanta, GA faces the same challenges as many institutions: how to balance high performance building targets and campus goals with human-centric environments; manage energy and water resources across a diverse building portfolio; mitigate impact on local infrastructure; take advantage of advancements in building technology while tying into existing buildings and campus systems; and ultimately deliver the optimal building for the future within finite site and budget constraints. This advanced session will start with a brief overview of specific regional, programmatic, and campus challenges for energy, storm water, sewage discharge, transportation, and waste; as well as Emory’s sustainability vision and aggressive goals for Health Science Research Building II, a 330k SF, $190 mil laboratory project.
- Establish a process for advanced integrated design that may be replicated to future projects.
- Identify, assess, and obtain informed owner buy-in to sustainable design strategies
- Realize offsets in basis-of-design first cost to pay for sustainable design elements
- Apply strategies that address the unique challenges for projects in Atlanta and science and technology projects to their projects across the world
