A copy of the green building guidelines or policies :
The green building guidelines or policies:
Although not pursuing LEED, the College uses LEED guideline as the guideline for new constructions and major renovation.
Do the green building guidelines or policies cover the following?:
|Yes or No|
|Impacts on the surrounding site (e.g. guidelines to reuse previously developed land, protect environmentally sensitive areas, and otherwise minimize site impacts)||Yes|
|Energy consumption (e.g. policies requiring a minimum level of energy efficiency for buildings and their systems)||Yes|
|Building-level energy metering||Yes|
|Use of environmentally preferable materials (e.g. guidelines to minimize the life cycle impacts associated with building materials)||Yes|
|Indoor environmental quality (i.e. guidelines to protect the health and comfort of building occupants)||Yes|
|Water consumption (e.g. requiring minimum standards of efficiency for indoor and outdoor water use)||Yes|
|Building-level water metering||Yes|
A brief description of the green building guidelines or policies and/or a list or sample of buildings covered:

Fanshawe's Aviation Centre
J Building - Wellness Centre
Energy consumption: our building automation system has timers for temperature control in all buildings on campus. Timers are set using a combination of both occupancy sensors and time of day scheduling. Most lighting is controlled by occupancy sensors and all new or retrofitted lighting is LED. All new buildings are designed to be compatible with our automation system
Energy Metering: Fanshawe College meters all energy consumption for the majority of its buildings on campus. Presently data is collected in a Real Time Operating System
Environmentally preferable materials: In all projects, contractors are instructed to use recycled and locally made materials, wherever possible. Low VOC paints, coatings and adhesives are used in all interior construction.
Indoor environmental quality: our building automation system monitors tempterature, humidity and CO2 as per ASHRAE Standard Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality 62-1999. Also, most new buildings will contain a living wall.
Water consumption: All plumbing and fixtures are LEED standard low-flow
Water metering: all new buildings have their own water meter. The majority of existing buildings have their own meter, though some are combined.
A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:
The College engages the services of a Commissioning Agent (CxA) on major capital projects. Working closely with the College’s stakeholders the CxA’s role is to ensure that the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) are captured, documented and incorporated into the project’s design. The OPR includes many elements broadly described as: Environmental and Sustainability Goals; Indoor Environmental Quality Requirements; Site Planning and Landscape Architecture; Architectural Systems; Mechanical and Electrical Equipment and Systems Expectations; and Building Occupant and Facility Maintenance & Engineering (FM&E) Personnel Requirements.
The CxA works closely with the College’s project team, the architects, construction manager and specialized consultants to ensure the Owner’s Project Requirements and Basis of Design are met and that targets are achieved in the final project.
