Keeping score with certification of green buildings

first_imgFrom the print editionTo many architects and builders, the question of what constitutes a “green building“green is an open one, which depends on factors such as the conditions of the site, climate, local customs, personal taste, available budget and a multitude of other considerations. However, others are in the business of defining exactly what a green building is, and of putting their stamp of approval on them.Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, for example, examines a long list of factors, and then, based on the compliance of the building with these requirements, denies or issues a certification. Depending on the number of points of compliance, the building can receive certification on one of four levels:  Basic LEED certification, Silver, Gold or Platinum.LEED, developed in the United States by the nonprofit U.S. Green Building Council, pioneered third-party, independent certification for green buildings in the U.S. and now has been  applied in 137 countries, including Costa Rica.  According to Roberto Meza, an engineer who works with LEED certification, there are now seven LEED-certified buildings in Costa Rica, while another 27 projects are pending. Other green certification programs also exist, including BREEAM, developed in the United Kingdom, and a new initiative being developed in Costa Rica specifically for Central America, called Requisites for Sustainable Buildings in the Tropics, or RESET (TT, May 12).The reasons for certifying a green building are many, and can include: •Marketing to environmentally conscious buyers or renters; •Using the certification requirements as a guide for green building; •In the case of corporations, as public relations and cost savings, or as part of a defined Corporate Social Responsibility policy; •In the case of government buildings in some countries, as a legal requisite and an example; •International development banks (such as the World Bank) are providing financing through local banks in Costa Rica and other countries on favorable terms for certified green buildings; •Finally, that the builder is willing to submit the building to an independent, highly detailed technical review is a sign of seriousness, and achieving certification a sign of good design and quality construction.LEED looks at the following issues, among others, and awards points based on compliance with a list of technical considerations under each heading.•The site of the building. Buildings that take advantage of existing infrastructure, control erosion and runoff, have access to public transportation and do not waste green space receive a higher rating;•Water efficiency, achieved through landscaping and water-saving appliances and plumbing fixtures;•Energy efficiency, achieved by building design and construction, smart appliances, and sometimes, on-site generation of energy;•Use of sustainable building materials and minimizing waste and use of natural resources; here, the impact of the building on CO2 in the atmosphere is taken into account;•Design. LEED recognizes smart design, and assigns extra credit for design innovation.RESET, which is in the final stages of development, is meant to be more attuned to building in a tropical, developing country than LEED and other certification systems, which were created in wealthy countries with temperate climates. According to Huberth Méndez, executive director of the Foundation for Urban Development, and a member of the committee of the Costa Rican Construction Chamber, which is designing RESET, the new certification system gives comparatively more weight to the choice of a site, building design and water use, and less to energy use, which is much more important in a climate that has extremes of hot and cold than in a tropical one like Costa Rica’s.Méndez also thinks that certification with RESET will be less expensive (Roberto Meza estimates that LEED certification can cost between $2,250 and $27,500, depending on the size and complexity of the building or project, although he stresses that savings in energy and water use, as well as construction costs, usually easily pay for the costs of certification).Although Meza believes that RESET is not strictly necessary – he thinks that LEED certification is sufficiently flexible as well as time-tested – he applauds the initiative as one that will lead to increased consciousness about sustainable building design in Costa Rica, and more green buildings as a result.“The points [counted for certification] are not the point,” he says, “The point is more and better sustainable buildings.” Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

Recreo A Costa Rican playground for the adventurous and the cultured

first_imgPlaya Rajada is known for having one of the best sunsets in Costa Rica. Villa 19 has a pool area perfect for a massive party or just lounging around. Lindsay Fendt No related posts. Going There: Recreo is most easily accessed by flying into the Liberia airport and taking the road to La Cruz. After arriving in La Cruz take the turn off to El Jobo and continue towards Playa Rajada. Airport shuttles can also be arranged for $50 per adult per way. Recreo offers seven-night, all-inclusive packages during the holiday season, which include meals prepared by a private chef. The packages are priced by villa ranging from $4,046 for the one-bedroom villa (up to two people) and $20,230 for the five-bedroom villa (up to ten people). Off-season rates are as little as $189 per night for the one-bedroom villa and as much as $429 per night for the five-bedroom villa. Facebook Commentscenter_img Lindsay Fendt Upon my arrival at Recreo, a luxury resort at the tippy top of the northwestern province of Guanacaste, I was instantly compelled to snoop. (An expansive five-bedroom villa with seemingly infinite closets and secret nooks will do that). After 10 minutes of rummaging in the recreation room’s drawers, I emerged in the ultimate vacation get-up: a jungle explorer hat, binoculars, a maraca and a sturdy African club that I found on a shelf. I also discovered candleholders shaped like star people, miscellaneous drinking glasses, the board game Cranium and a small wooden manger.For me, these items provided little more than amusement. But their residency in our villa, along with everything else about my Recreo experience, led me to conclude that the U.S. owners of this remote Costa Rican beach resort had thought of everything. Situated on 32 hectares of land near the infrequently-visited Playas Rajada and Jobo, the seven villas at Recreo provide as much variety as the assortment of wonders inside of them. Whether it’s the intimate one-bedroom studio separated from the rest of the property by about a million stairs, the five-bedroom party mansion that the two of us stayed in, or something in between; Recreo seems to have digs for any occasion.Modern furniture and fixtures adorn each of the villas, but there also homages to Costa Rican history and culture. An oversized mortar and pestle once used for grinding corn is on display in Villa 19, and traditional oxcart parts are scattered throughout the resort. The only features the unique villas seem to have in common are the private pools and full kitchens, and I don’t recommend a grand tour unless you want a serious case of villa-envy. It happened to us in Villa 6. The floor-to-ceiling windows, moat and incredible mountain-and-sea view blew us away. Even the shower had a jungle view. Fortunately, we were able to recover after returning to our villa (19) to take a dip in its long pool and lounge on its plush wrap-around couch. After a relaxing afternoon and a lunch of lomito, fresh salad and patacones prepared by an exceedingly talented personal chef, we were ready to further explore. We set out on the gravel path lined in magenta Bougainvillea flowers, coconut palms and fruit trees that are frequented by spider and white-faced monkeys. The path is large enough for a car, but Recreo is best traveled by golf carts, which can be rented for $40 per day or $200 per week. Zipping around in these carts amidst the mysterious, prickly-treed landscape of Guanacaste, one is tempted to hoot like a sabanero (cowboy), and I can’t say we didn’t. Outside of Recreo’s gates, a five-minute golf-cart jaunt down a dirt road leads to Playa Rajada, a quiet beach known for its spectacular sunsets. Unlike most of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, Rajada is practically empty, making it perfect for a relaxing getaway. Guests can check out snorkel gear, boogie boards, kayaks and other sporting equipment (including basketballs and tennis racquets for the resort’s convenient and well-maintained courts) from the front desk. And although I do recommend kayaking and snorkelling just off the coast, where octopuses and lobsters can be spotted, beware of paddling too close to the rocky outcroppings. Sizeable waves occasionally break near them, and one managed to capsize my kayak. While the beach offers a fairly spectacular sunset, so too does the mountain-top lookout on Recreo’s property. The area is equipped with WiFi and a bar that can be stocked and staffed on request, and offers expansive views of Playa Rajada, Playa Jobo and even a stretch of southwestern Nicaragua. Most importantly, though, its the ideal vantage point to kick back with a glass of wine and watch the area’s famous sunsets, during which dramatic pinks streak the sky as a fuchsia sun dips into the Pacific.last_img read more

What an MLB source said about the Dbacks trade h

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away “I think there were a lot of positives to come out of the game.”Whisenhunt could have been talking about the play of his QBs, who combined to go 18-30 for 290 yards and three touchdowns, the 110 yards his team gained on the ground or the fact that 10 different players caught a pass. But, as we know, coaches don’t always care about stats in exhibition games. Whisenhunt and his staff wanted to see specific things out of different players, and that was a fairly mixed bag.“It’s been a very hectic week-and-a-half that we’ve had these guys,” the coach said. “But I think, overall, just as an overall concept of what you’re looking at it wasn’t as bad as maybe I thought it would be or probably a lot of people.”Whisenhunt said the team is “by no means a finished product,” and he’s got that right.Still, there were enough positives to take away from Thursday night’s game to feel comfortable saying this team will be better than last year’s squad. ArizonaSports.com’s Craig Grialou contributed to this reportcenter_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Comments   Share   The final score really doesn’t matter.Sure, the Cardinals beat the Raiders 24-18 in the preseason opener Thursday night, but because it was just that — preseason — coming out with a win wasn’t the top objective.No, the Cardinals wanted to execute their assignments and come away healthy and, save for Todd Heap’s sprained left thumb, did a pretty good job of accomplishing both tasks.“As you would expect [there] were a lot of things we can work on,” Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “But for the most part, I was excited to see the number of different players make the plays that they did.last_img read more

Government accepts Guterres new temporary Cyprus envoy Updated

first_imgThe Republic of Cyprus has agreed to the appointment of American Jane Holl Lute by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres as a temporary envoy to feel out prospects for the resumption of Cyprus talks, sources within the UN said on Wednesday.According to the Cyprus News Agency, which cites sources within the UN, the request from the secretary-general’s office to the five interested parties – Greek Cypriots, Turkish Cypriots and guarantors Greece, Turkey and the UK – was sent on Tuesday night, but not all responses have yet been received. Daily Politis, also citing sources, said that the Turkish Cypriots have also accepted Lute’s appointment.The US former UN official is to be appointed as a temporary personal envoy of Guterres.Guterres is reportedly pondering whether to launch the fact-finding mission right away, or wait until after the elections in Turkey in June.The secretary-general’s office has reiterated however that there are currently no plans to appoint a full special adviser to the secretary-general. The last special adviser was Norwegian diplomat Espen Barth Eide.Responding to a written question by CNA, deputy spokesman for the secretary-general Farhan Haq recalled that “upon the closing of the Conference on Cyprus last year, the secretary-general encouraged all parties to reflect in order to determine whether the conditions would mature again for a meaningful process in the near future.”“The UN is in contact with the parties to determine a way to seek the outcomes of their reflections and their views on the way forward,” Haq said.If the UN feels the talks can go ahead, Guterres would then appoint a special adviser to facilitate the negotiations.The move to appoint an envoy comes after Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci said on Monday he was ready to accept the Guterres framework and called on President Anastasiades to do the same.Anastasiades welcomed the statement as positive but asked for clarification, especially from Turkey on the issues of security, guarantees and troops.Jane Holl Lute has serviced in various senior UN positions and was also the US deputy secretary for Homeland Security from 2009 through 2013. In February 2016, she was appointed by the UN as Special Coordinator on Improving the United Nations Response to Sexual Exploitation and Abuse.   You May LikeWorldemandCatch Up With These 70’s Stars Years LaterWorldemandUndoHousediver18+ Suprising Foods That Wash Blocked ArteriesHousediverUndoFood Eat Safe9 Foods You Shouldn’t Touch With ArthritisFood Eat SafeUndo State Legal Service condemns attack on attorney-generalUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoFilm review: Child’s Play ***Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Government given goahead for series of expenses

first_imgMPs on Monday green-lighted the release of some €600,000 in appropriations for expenses to be undertaken by various government departments.Of the funds, €417,000 is earmarked for the Internal Audit Service. The appropriations are to be used for tenders for the purchase of audit services to be carried out at ministries, government departments and ministries.An additional €50,000 was released to parliament to pay the Cyprus News Agency for transmitting live sessions of the House plenary. For this year, 38 plenary sessions will be held, the transmission of each is billed at €1,100 plus VAT.Meanwhile the interior ministry received €137,000 for a number of development projects, including for a new home for the headquarters of the Union of Displaced Communities of Famagusta, as well as landscaping and repair works at various communities.Also on Monday, the House finance committee was set to release €100,000 to the Grain Commission to cover expenses relating to the body’s future status. This includes €57,900 to be paid to KPMG for consultancy services rendered to the government.KPMG is consulting the government on finding a strategic investor, to whom the grain silo in Limassol would be leased for 20 years. The investor would import and trade in grain in the domestic market as well as maintain strategic grain reserves free of charge.MPs requested additional data before releasing these funds.The government is looking to nationalise the loss-making Grain Commission and transfer its staff to other departments.The commission was established in 1960 as a state-controlled monopoly to ensure the lowest possible prices for grain imports, which it delivered to local businesses, and maintain the country’s strategic reserves.With the accession to the European Union in 2004, however, the grain market was liberalised and the semi-state importer was forced to operate under free-market conditions.The commission currently employs 60 workers but the government says the job can be done with about 10. You May LikeCollegebook15 Best Public Colleges You Might Don’t KnowCollegebookUndoScience101These Common Tricks Are Used By Thieves To Steal Your StuffScience101UndoEditorChoiceTop 30 Dangerous Places For SwimmingEditorChoiceUndo Korkolis brings magic to the stageUndoLED-lighting the way by 2020UndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

58Washington: Chinese President Xi Jinping’s effort to boost his own power and prestige will have disastrous consequences for his country and the world a top American foreign policy magazine said Monday "For decades the country managed to avoid most problems suffered by dictatorships Now Xi Jinping’s personal power play risks undermining everything that made China exceptional" Jonathan Tepperman editor-in-chief of the prestigious Foreign Policy magazine said in the latest issue of the magazine In a lengthy opinion piece titled ‘China’s great leap backward’ Tepperman wrote that since assuming power in 2012 Xi has worked to dismantle China’s collective leadership system in several ways First in the name of fighting corruption — an important goal and one China badly needs — he has purged a vast number of officials whose real crime in Xi’s view was failing to show sufficient loyalty to the paramount leader and replaced the incentive-based system with one based on fear "Not content to merely eliminate any competition Xi has also consolidated his power by abandoning term limits refusing to name a successor and making himself ‘chairman of everything’" the editor-in-chief wrote "If China’s economic problems spin out of control completely the state could collapse — a typical occurrence among typical dictatorships when faced with economic shocks external threats or popular unrest" he wrote and warned that in the case of worsening of economic problems Xi could try to ratchet up tensions on the external front in order to distract his citizens from the crisis at home "That temptation will prove especially strong if US President Donald Trump keeps poking China by intensifying the trade war and publicly denouncing it" he wrote "Which is why the rest of us should hope that China somehow finds a way to defy political gravity once again and remain an exception to all the rules — despite Xi’s ongoing efforts to make it normal in the worst sense of the word" Tepperman wrote" Targeting Rajendra Gavit son of Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan “I don’t think it’s a random incident however Here are some of the stories we

issued a copy of alettershehas sent to CramerShe says in the letter that she is "still stunned and outraged by what we experienced" in the meeting she and other tribal victim assistance professionals had with him in Bismarck on TuesdayIn its statement the Spirit Lake council said Cramer’s remarks "clearly stem from a lack of understanding" of the recently reauthorized Violence Against Women Act which the council said "includes safeguards that address the concerns the congressman expressed with regard to due process"The council statement noted the "(w)ring the Tribal Council’s neck" comment

Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Related NewsMelbourne: Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has tipped David Warner to be one of the contenders for IPL’s ‘Player of the Tournament’ award as he feels extra responsibility always gets the best out of the dashing opener Warner didn’t have a good Test tour of India and will be aiming to get back to form with some good scores for defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL File photo of Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner Sportzpics "On the back of a slightly disappointing Test series he’s back at a championship-winning team and he’s captain" Ponting told cricketComAu "I think he loves that responsibility And he’s an opening batsman You’d think the Player of the Tournament is going to be a spinner or an opening batsman That’s the way the T20 game is right now so I think Davey will be Player of the Tournament" the Aussie legend said Ponting is confident that Warner will not be affected by his dry spell during Test series as he remains in a happy space while playing for the Sunrisers "You always like to go into any tournament with a lot of runs under your belt but to me Davey is the sort of guy that it won’t bother too much He’s back into a really comfortable environment" The flat tracks in India is ideal to get back into form especially while playing white ball cricket "And I think the fact that it’s T20 cricket against the white ball and on very good pitches that you get in India I am sure he will have another good tournament" Ponting said Warner had a terrific IPL last year scoring nine half-centuries in 17 games It takes a strong character to be an IPL captain and Ponting reckons that Warner can bring in the overseas and Indian players on same page "You need those Indian players and everyone else to be on the same page and heading in the same direction and I’m pretty sure Davey would have demanded that of his players last year And if he gets more of an opportunity to captain Australia like he has done I’m sure he’ll do a good job as well" Ponting sounded confident Having coach Mumbai Indians for two seasons Ponting was highly impressed with Warner’s performance last year "The way he played last year having coached against him a few times he was just about the standout performer Virat was unbelievably good but Davey wasn’t far behind And to be fair the Sunrisers will need him again to play the way he did and lead the way he did Written by Man Aman Singh Chhina | Chandigarh | Published: October 27 2015 4:26 am Related News Two days before
