Erin Reilly-Sanders Schooley Caldwell Architects Catching Up Columbus Central Ohioans have a long way to go to becoming good environmental stewards- how are we doing now and what can we do to close the gap? Where is Columbus in the great race, or rather slow plod, towards sustainability? Information about current initiatives in sustainability and general support within the Central Ohio region provide some different ways of assessing how good our community is at being environmental stewards. Demonstrated by AIA’s revised Code of Ethics and AIA National Committee on the Environment (COTE)’s support of the 9/20/19 Climate Strike, one of the big questions in the field of architecture is how to be a sustainable professional. Furthermore, AIA Columbus COTE is in the process of surveying sustainable practices for architecture firms in order to create a benchmark for the Central Ohio region. This initiative hopes to provide resources for filling in the gaps between typical practice and practice of architecture that will meet the AIA 2030 challenge. This session will explore these events as well as climate opinion data (Marlon et al, 2019) as different measures of sustainability. Given the greater contexts of the country, world, and climate change science, understanding where we stand is crucial to making the changes necessary to meeting our future on the best terms possible. The session will conclude with identifying ways in which we can work as individuals and organizations to address the challenge of being sustainable. 1. Explore several different measures of sustainability including the AIA 2030 challenge, Architects Advocate Pledge, and climate opinion data from Yale 2. Identify the new ethical standards for Architects by AIA that focus on sustainable construction 3. Contextualize the environmental stewardship present in Central Ohio 4.

Creating Space for Change: How The Ohio State University is Changing College Campus’ Response to Mental Health through Design for [WELL]-being Designed to become the first WELL certified building at The Ohio State University, the expansion to Newton Hall will serve as a laboratory for how college campuses can better support mental wellness through attention to aspects of the physical environment. One out of four people living in the United States today suffers from a mental health condition. The suicide rate for college students has tripled since 1950, with the World Health Organization just announcing one suicide occurs every 40 seconds. There is an opportunity to create space for change, through the built environment, prioritizing mental wellness through human-centric design that enhances, and encourages, behavioral choices that influence our health and wellness outcomes. Research proves the physical and social environment has a significant impact on determining the state of health, with a higher level of impact outweighing other contributing factors like lifestyle behavior, medical care, and even genetics. The success of the space is achieved by providing an environment that supports healthy lifestyles including physical activity, good nutrition, and mental health, leveraging both LEED v4 and WELL v2._x000D_
This session will address the University’s vision to be the healthiest university and academic community on the globe, the project team is designing a future that supports the University’s mission to facilitate the highest level of wellness for faculty, staff and students across the University and community. The Newton Hall addition will be an extension of the programming work that the College of Nursing leads at the University to help foster good mental health and emotional well-being as a foundation to overall health and happiness. The design team will share how insights into WELL are working to create a positive human experience. The team's acumen in the WELL system has led this innovative design to incorporate an abundance of natural light, views to nature, natural materials and a variety of social spaces, all rooted in evidence-based design. It’s time to promote mental well-being through our building design. It’s time to break social stigmas and create a new precedent for mental health priorities in our academic and work environments
Describe the epidemic of the current climate of mental health disorders in the United States and how human-centric design rooted in evidence-based research can influence positive outcomes. Discuss the influence the built environment has on the state of health, and a space’s effect on behavioral choices that influence health and wellness. Identify building design strategies used to facilitate positive mental health, with concepts for implementation that support healthy lifestyles leveraging both LEED and WELL. Illustrate an appropriate approach to incorporating discussions surrounding LEED and WELL principles into key design strategy meetings with clients. Yes BD+C Yes No
Donald Dispenza, Nicholas Bittner BDT Architects & Designers 26 E Park Drive: Floodway Constraints Lead to Creativity The design of an 18,000 square foot medical/professional building meets stringent floodway requirements yet adheres to modern architecture principles. 26 E Park Drive is an 18,000 square foot medical/professional office building located in Athens, Ohio. The project won a 2019 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Columbus Chapter merit award in the “large project” category for its creative response to the building’s site: the floodplain of the Hocking River. The design meets FEMA’s “floodway” definition, a designation even more stringent than “floodplain.” It is raised on 42 concrete piers to permit flood waters to flow through the building site. The Athens Planning Commission granted a variance to build on the delicate site based on BDT Architects & Designers’ minimally invasive design.

The aesthetics of 26 E Park were derived from the site’s practical requirements yet adhere to modern architecture principles. Design features include a dramatically curving roof, shiplap cedar siding and full-height windows. Clerestory lites that run the entire south length of the mezzanine level contribute to the building’s passive solar design, warming the interior in the winter and daylighting workspaces.

Mid-Century Engineering Lab Renovation/Addition: An Energy-Efficient Model This program will discuss strategies to sustainably improve aging engineering and research buildings on college campuses. Creating a sustainable, energy-efficient building expansion/renovation has become one of the most important goals of Phase 1 of the Ohio State University Advanced Materials Corridor project. The project can be considered an instructive prototype for improving the many aging engineering and research buildings throughout Ohio and the Midwest. _x000D_
The Mars G. Fontana Laboratories, currently under construction at a prominent location on The Ohio State University’s main campus, is a complete renovation and large addition to a 1960s lab building. When completed, it will be a 127,000 SF biomedical and materials engineering building. It is the first phase of the Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex, which will be an interconnected series of existing renovated buildings and new construction providing efficient teaching and research spaces. As a result of co-locating two highly ranked engineering departments, the new lab has been designed to a high level of operational and energy efficiency. Pursuing a goal of LEED Silver, the predicted EUI of 190 kbtu/sf/yr results in an energy savings exceeding 40% when compared to national benchmarks for the building type. In recognition of water as a valuable resource the users were educated about the impacts of cooling scientific equipment with once-through domestic water and opted for a process chilled water system to meet the scientific equipment needs.

City of Euclid

From Private to Public: Reclaiming Euclid's Waterfront Once recognized as the birthplace of zoning due to its role in the landmark zoning case of ‘Euclid v. Ambler Realty’, this community now stands poised to achieve national acclaim for this innovative, precedent-setting public access project. In 2009, the Euclid Waterfront Improvement Plan established a $30M vision for the city’s Lake Erie shoreline, of which only six percent was publicly accessible. Through a public consensus-building process, the first phase of improvements - a fishing pier and ADA-accessible trails linking the lakefront to downtown - were constructed in 2013. Phase II is currently under construction, featuring a three-quarter mile public all-purpose trail at the water’s edge, erosion mitigation, shoreline stabilization and habitat/beach reclamation, providing for environmental tourism and recreational opportunities. _x000D_
This milestone represents a decade public-private partnerships to bring from concept to reality one of the longest coastal projects permitted by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Through land donations and easement agreements from nearly 100 land owners, the vision reinforces regional goals for healthy communities and sets a precedent for catalytic economic development along Lake Erie. _x000D_
Euclid is the 17th largest city in Ohio, with a diverse population. Historically, the lakefront was publicly accessible, but a 20th-century housing and industrial boom changed the landscape. Now, the city is reclaiming its best natural asset for the benefit of all. This project is positioned to transform not only the deteriorating shoreline and natural habitats of Lake Erie, but to elevate property values, quality of life and overall attractiveness of the lakefront city to new investment, and to serve as a model for other lakefront communities. _x000D_

Melinda Shah & Matt Quijada Schooley Caldwell Existing Buildings (Can Be) Green Buildings Working with a building's existing assets, whether it be large windows and high ceilings or an urban site and existing mechanical pathways, can result in a sustainable building. Existing buildings may not be built with the latest and greatest insulation, air barriers, and other newer technologies but they provide a ready stock for sustainable construction. The former Lazarus department store, Clinton Elementary School, and OSU South Campus Highrises are all very different types of buildings built at different times but have one thing in common - they are all certified LEED gold. This course will examine how working with a building's existing assets, whether it be the large windows and high ceilings or urban sites and existing mechanical pathways, can result in a sustainable building. Accounting for the benefits of historic preservation and adaptive reuse, the concept of embodied energy helps quantify benefits of using materials longer. These buildings are also typically in ideal locations for development - their incorporation into urban fabric lands all the benefits of existing utilities and public transportation. One concern one might have is how to update the buildings to be more energy efficient without disturbing the historic fabric. We’ll review some best tips for context-appropriate renovation. Explain the concept of embodied energy and why it maters when discussing existing buildings. Analyze how the location of existing buildings is frequently more sustainable than locations for new buildings. Examine how energy efficiency can be improved in existing buildings without damaging the historic fabric. Discuss how the features and characteristics of different styles of existing buildings and identify how to work with them to maximize the sustainability of the buildings. No No No
