TITLE:  Experiential Learning Lab: LEED-EB: O+M

John O'Brien, Heapy Engineering
Michael Gulich, Purdue University

ABSTRACT: LEED-EB:O+M is an ideal tool for experiential learning on a college campus - allowing students to gain real world experience in full-spectrum sustainability. The Office of University Sustainability (OUS) at Purdue University initiated a LEED-EB:O+M pilot project on campus with graduate students who self-organized and self-managed the documentation process with only strategic input from'professionals'.

OUS partnered with the Krannert School of Management and the Experiential Learning Initiative (ELI) which provides an opportunity for teams of graduate students to undertake consulting projects for corporate clients. The interdisciplinary nature of the project appealed to ELI and brought together engineering, science, and technology students.

OUS ultimately did hire a consultant to act as adviser, reference,'gatekeeper' for documentation, and as a'safety net'. OUS leveraged LEED-EB:O+M as an umbrella for several initiatives on campus including: retro commissioning, implementation of energy efficiency measures, development of sustainability plans and policies, and engagement of students, faculty and building staff around sustainability.

Student team deliverables included all documentation for LEED-EB:O+M certification, a white paper on "The Business Case for LEED-EB:O+M at Purdue University", and guidance for future students on how to replicate this project. Purdue is already planning future student-led LEED-EBO+M projects on campus.

TITLE: The Water - Energy Nexus: Dual Benefit Sustainability

Michael Berning, Heapy Engineering
Neil Myers, Williams Creek Consulting, Inc.
John Hazlett, Williams Creek Consulting
Daniel Hellmuth, Hellmuth + Bicknese Architects, LLC

ABSTRACT: In a rapid fire presentation format, the presenters of this seminar will use examples such as the Tyson Living Learning Center at Washington University, to examine how water and energy reduction strategies can be combined to achieve net zero water and net zero energy objectives. The Tyson Center is one of the first buildings to achieve the Living Building Challenge Certification. Water Footprinting, the process for developing a baseline water assessment, truly informs sustainably-based organizational reform. Focusing on water through on-site restoration of the natural water cycle enhances the overall effort of moving toward net-zero impact on local resources. The need for predictive and performance energy modeling during design and occupation as it relates to realistically achieving net zero energy, as well as how the Ongoing Commissioning process preserves the high performance operation designed into a building's energy and water using systems will also be presented.

Ongoing Commissioning: Protecting Your Investment
Heapy Engineering's Michael Berning (Director of Sustainable Design) and Donn Young (Commissioning Services Manager) are presenting "Ongoing Commissioning: Protecting Your Investment."  This seminar explains the difference between Ongoing, Retro and Basic/Fundamental Commissioning.  Several case studies will be used to illustrate the value of implementing an Ongoing Commissioning Program (and compliant with LEED EBOM).  This seminar will also outline how Ongoing Commissioning is a process that goes beyond basic Preventative Maintenance to preserve the high performance and energy efficiency levels of a building's energy using systems.

Session 4B 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm
A Bold Vision: The Columbus Museum of Art Expansion
Heapy Engineering's Mike Malesko (Project Manager) will be a part of the panel discussing the design innovations employed on the Columbus Museum of Art Expansion.  This project consists of the renovation of the approximately 38,000 SF 1974 Wing, a major addition of approximately 49,000 SF, and associated site work related to a new main entrance, sculpture garden, and related outdoor spaces that connect to the larger neighborhood framework. CMA is at the forefront of explorations of the new role the art museum plays in contemporary society.  The leadership of CMA had a strong vision for how their facilities needed to be improved to better serve their evolving mission. Major priorities identified for the project were a new clarified entry experience, expanded special event space, special exhibition space for large traveling exhibits, new gallery space for contemporary art, and a new and expanded sculpture garden. A rigorous simplicity of form, the novel use of traditional materials, the poetic use of lighting, and elegant sensitivities to the historic museum building are cornerstones to the design innovations. This project is seeking LEED Silver Certification.
