The green building guidelines or policies:
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:
Kawartha Trades and Technology Center - Sutherland Campus
Sutherland Campus A-wing
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: Fleming College meters all energy consumption for the majority of its buildings on campus. Presently data is collected by the Sustainability office in a custom spreadsheet database.
Environmentally preferable materials: In all projects, contractors are instructed to use recycled and locally made materials, wherever possible. Low VOC paints, carpets, coatings, and adhesives are used in all interior construction.
Indoor environmental quality: our building automation system monitors temperature, humidity and CO2 as per ASHRAE Standard Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality 62-1999. Also, the Frost campus currently maintains a living wall and a large inventory of indoor greenery.
Water consumption: All plumbing and fixtures are low flow. The Kawartha Trades and Technology Center has a stormwater catchment system that provides all water to toilets in that area.
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 works closely with the Architects in the planning stage to ensure that designs comply with green building design and construction guidelines and goals of the Stakeholders, Procurement Guidelines and college sustainability plan.

Additional documentation to support the submission:
Fleming has completed 3 major construction or renovations in the last 5 years, the construction of the Kawartha Trades and Technology Center (KTTC) at Sutherland Campus and, in 2018-19, the Sutherland campus A-wing renovation and the Frost GeoCentre. Significant upgrades to our boiler, HVAC, lighting (LED), alternative energy (wind) and BAS were completed in 2019.
The design of the Kawartha Trade and Technology Centre (KTTC) building has been built to LEED Gold certification standards. Certification for LEED BD&C has not been pursued to date.
Historically, Fleming has followed various Canadian government programs promoting efficient building construction, including Natural Resources Canada CBIP standard, and Ontario's Superbuild program. With the Superbuild program, in particular, Fleming received a Gold Level award for the following construction projects: Sutherland Technology Wing, Frost Environmental Technology Wing, Haliburton Campus, and Sutherland Village Residence.
