2000 Annual Green Building Report

The Scottsdale Green Building Program promotes sustainability in the home building arena through environmental sensitivity in site use, building materials, energy, water, indoor air quality, and solid waste. The program goals are to reduce the environmental impact of building, achieve both short and long-term savings in energy, water and other natural resources, and encourage a healthier indoor environment. It provides an alternative to homebuyers for sustainable living and the long-term advantages of owning an environmentally sound home.

The City of Scottsdale Green Building Program was initiated in February of 1998 and rates homes in the categories of site, energy, building materials, indoor air quality, water, and solid waste. A Green Building Checklist is used to gather a minimum of 63 points, choosing from numerous options. The program is strictly voluntary and uses incentives to entice builder participation.

The Green Building Program is voluntary and open to all builders and developers whose projects meet the city’s green building criteria. Besides the program marketing advantages, the city offers expedited plan review and project consultation on all green building projects.

We would like to thank the members and volunteers of Scottsdale’s Green Building Program Committee for their guidance and valuable contributions.

Participating Builders and Inventory of Green Building Projects

By the end of 2000 a total of 108 projects enrolled in Scottsdale’s Green Building Program since the establishment of the program in February 1998. The projects entered in 2000 include a variety of designs that range from traditional tract homes to contemporary customs and exhibit a wide range of building materials and strategies. Building materials range from standard "stick" building to hybrid systems using innovative products and strategies.

The first commercial and tenant improvement projects were enrolled into the program in 2000. While the primary focus remains on refining the residential component of the program, it is anticipated that other building types, including remodeling, will be incorporated in the future. The decision to accept these projects at this time was due largely to the desire of their owners and designers to practice and promote environmental stewardship.

The following builders were active participants in the program during 2000:

Advanced Concepts Piccione Construction
Classic Stellar Homes Redden Construction, Inc.
Dallas D. Schmidt Development, Inc. Rhino Enterprises, Inc.
Desert Masonry Sloan Homes
The Edwards Design Group, Inc. Joe R. Stotts Construction
Golden Heritage Homes Stripling Warriors Contractors
Golden Vista Tierra Building Group, Inc.
Heller Construction Tom Norris Homes
Hustead Development` Tyson Development, LLC
Jordan Development VIP Homes
Kitchell Custom Homes Wolf Environmental, Inc.
Landmark Building Consultants, LLC.

Following is an inventory of construction activity for the year 2000:

  • Conventional wood framing is still the most prolific method of construction and Classic Stellar Homes continues to be the builder with the largest number of projects (35) enrolled in the Program. Their "conventional" building strategies allow them to guarantee efficient annual heating & cooling costs, which is one of the best qualifiers of a green home. The Company recently completed a "healthy" home project for a hypersensitive client in Scottsdale and a demonstration project with the American Cancer Society (in Phoenix).
  • V.I.P. Homes, the second production builder to enter the Program, will complete 9 homes at Legend Trail. All the homes were entered into the Engineered for Life Program.
  • Landmark Construction is keeping busy with four new entries in various parts of the city, as are Kitchell Custom Homes and Stripling Warrior Construction both with two projects under way.
  • Dallas D. Schmidt Development, Inc. has completed its first green home, which is also the company’s first effort in the valley. The 3000sf spec. home is located in Candlewood Estates. Dallas previously built homes in the Denver area.
  • Paul Sievert, Tyson Development, LLC, has two spec homes in Lomas Verdes, one on the market and one on its way there. His third spec will be in the same geographic area.
  • Remember the home with the pool and spa in the front yard? Turns out the owner builds pools for a living! His energy efficient, wood frame "showcase" was built by Tom Norris Homes. Tom is using (converted to?) Omni Block insulated masonry in his next project, a two story spec in Desert Summit, and will be starting his 3rd and 4th entries shortly.
  • Insulated Masonry is popular with owners and builders such as Mike Frisby of Golden Vista Homes. They are starting their fifth home, all have used Omni Block. Tierra Builders has completed their second home in the program. Also built with Omni Block, this Candlewood Estates home is the first in the program to incorporate photovoltaic panels for electricity. John Sjobring, Advanced Concepts, has completed and sold his first green home, a partial two story, using Omni Block as well. John is anxious to get started on number two. Darren Haenny, WEI, will build his third entry using Omni Block on a post-tensioned slab. His first home used Integra Block, which is also the material of choice by the owners of the first entries by Piccione Construction and Desert Masonry. Jordan Development’s first green effort is located in Troon Highland Estates.
  • Homes using ICF (insulated concrete form) systems are becoming more prominent in the Program. Sloan Homes has completed a Rastra and steel frame home and will be starting their next one shortly. Heller Construction recently finished two custom homes. Their Troon North project used Rastra for both wall and floor framing; interior walls were built with an ICF foam and wire panel system. The same system was combined with steel framing at their project in Sincuidados. Rastra is also being used by Golden Heritage Homes for their first entry, a prototype spec home. Paul Stark Construction will be using the Blue Max system for their first green building adventure. Richard Elam and Randy Simonson are building one of the more unique homes in the program using Keeva block and a host of other materials. Of particular note is the integration of the building with the site-nothing traditional from these guys.
  • Two straw bale homes in the Program are now completed: Kevin Edwards, of the Edwards Design Group, occupied his own home this spring (the first permitted strawbale home in Scottsdale). The southwest design incorporates a number of energy/water conservation features, recycled materials, and an unpretentious interior design. Wolf Environmental Inc., (WEI), has completed Scottsdale’s first strawbale "spec" home that was offered on the market earlier this year. Notable items include passive solar design, reflective metal roof, combination evap/ac cooling, and a detached strawbale garage.
  • Scoria, a unique poured in place material using bottom ash waste from coal plants, will be used by Joe R. Stotts Construction in their first entry. Joe also used the material for his own home and that of his neighbor, architect Vern Swaback.
  • Owner/builders traveling the green path include: Perry Becker, Architect, (Omni Block), Robert Peters (Integra block), Michael Konenko (wood), Gene Leach (wood), Scott and Greg Allie (wood), Elbert Adams (wood), and Joe Wolfe, who’s constructing his hybrid basement home using poured concrete, the Hambro steel form floor system, Rastra exterior walls, and steel stud partitions.
  • Little Green Guest Houses for you and me are popping up all over! What better way to sustainably accommodate snowbirds, in-laws, or little green aliens? Both Hustead Development and Edwards Design Group have completed GH projects under the program and Donald Grieb, Architect, is building a guest house addition to his own home using his innovative and patented Macrotherm foam building system. Smaller can be better!
  • Architects designing green homes in the program include: Perry Becker, George Christensen, Dean Drosos, Randall Ewers, George Fulton, Don Grieb, Tom Hahn, Tom Hunt, John Kane, James Kottke, Charles Montooth, Roberts/Jones Associates, Inc., Mark Soloway, and Phil Weddle.
  • @One Yoga Studio, 1005 N. Scottsdale Rd, has completed the program’s first green tenant improvement project. Located in a shopping center storefront, partners Ian Lopatin and Alex Kump worked with interior designer/fabricator David Rosenberg of Silver Spring, Maryland; local feng shui consultant Suzanne Smith; Rhino Enterprises, Inc., and green building staff to create a healthy, aesthetically pleasing, yet functional space to practice their art. Highlights include: exposed concrete, natural cork, straw, and recycled content floor coverings; wall coverings and furnishings of natural materials; portable display units, low v.o.c. paints, advanced air filtering, efficient lighting and sound attenuation. Environmental consciousness is also reflected in their maintenance and merchandising.
  • Pinnacle Presbyterian Church, 25150 N. Pima Rd., is the first commercial entry. The project was submitted by Roberts/Jones Associates, Inc. and will be built by Redden Construction. The Architects have developed a comprehensive green specification to enhance the 27,000 sf additions to the desert-sited complex. The building will feature gas chillers and energy efficient, digitally controlled mechanical systems. Skylights providing the maximum use of daylighting are combined with highly efficient light fixtures. Existing site materials will be reused and recycled into the project; new materials will have recycled content. Low toxic materials and finishes will be used indoors to improve air quality, and a waste reduction requirement is specified.

Building Systems and Program Research
Marketing, program criteria, and builder incentives continue to be the main focus in the further development of the Scottsdale Green Building Program. Communications with similar programs and efforts around the country has been extremely beneficial in improving Scottsdale’s program. A trip by the city green building inspector to Austin, Texas to visit with the Austin Green Building Program, proved to be extremely valuable.

Staff attended numerous product demonstrations and presentations sponsored by The Reference Library, trade/design associations and vendors. Some of the demonstrations and presentations included structural insulated panels (SIP), metal stud construction, insulated concrete forms (ICF), roofing materials, insulation, building performance methodologies, construction material recycling, and other building trends related to environmentally responsible building. The collected information and resources has proven to be a valuable asset in the building review and inspection process.

Plan Review Submittals
As an incentive to builders who participate in Scottsdale Green Building Program, projects receive "fast track" plan review service. This means green building projects receive building permits in half the time as regular projects depending on the degree of complexity.

As a result of not always being able to meet this goal, we started tracking turn around times. There were a total of 57 green building projects submitted for review during the year 2000. The average first-review turnaround time for non-green building projects was 4-6 weeks. Our goal was to review green building projects in 2 to 3 weeks. So how did we do?

Time Period

Year 2000

Percentage of projects reviewed within two weeks

Percentage of projects reviewed within three weeks

January – June

36%

64%

July – December

41%

62%

Staff has a lot of internal work to do to improve this performance. There are already significant improvements in the making. We're working with department staff on a number of fronts and continue to have the support of the department head. Our goal for the year 2001 is to have 80% of green projects reviewed in half the time as non-green projects (2-3) weeks.

Collaboration and Public Relations
There has been a plethora of activity in the state of Arizona over the past year involving energy related and environmentally responsible building.

Our green building mailing list grew to from 400 to over 1000 individuals and organizations. Seven mass mailings were completed involving seminar announcements, newsletter, special lectures, Outlook event and logo contest flyers. In addition, we have received over 250 phone inquires and mailed out over 100 green building packets.

The Green Building Web Site (www.ci.scottsdale.az.us.az/greenbuilding) was been updated with a new format. The site contains most of the printed program material, including program enrollment, rating criteria, green building resource links, and a directory of builders and designers.

Congratulatory Letter to Mayor Manross and City Manager Jan Dolan from Green Building Committee

Thanks to Fran Smith, a congratulatory letter was prepared and signed by the green building committee for the Mayor for your new position. The committee felt that such a letter would help introduce the Mayor to the Green Building Committee while raising her awareness for future support. A similar letter be prepared and signed by committee members for the new city manager.

City Council Green Building Recognition
On October 2nd, members of the green building committee were introduced to the new mayor, council members and city manager while being recognized for receiving the CSI Environmental Sensitivity and Valley Forward Environmental Excellence awards for the Green Building Program.

Sonoran Solar Lecture Series
The Arizona Solar Energy Association (ASEA) in conjunction with the Green Building Program continued it’s the monthly solar lectures and presentations at the Scottsdale Redevelopment and Urban Design Studio. The lectures were held from 7 to 9 PM on the second Wednesday of every month culminating in October. Attendance level averaged around 25.

The goal of the lecture series was to educate the general public and design community about the benefits of solar in a variety of passive and active applications. The series presented a variety of topics involving solar and renewable energy utilization including design approaches, available and developing technologies, and social/environmental choices that impact Arizona and its citizens. The presentations demonstrated how solar energy is being used to generate electricity, heat water, power appliances, as well as heat, cool, and light our buildings.

Healthy Home Seminars
On March 9th, the Green Building Program co-hosted a seminar on Building Performance/Healthy Home at the Scottsdale Civic Center Library auditorium. The free seminar featured John Tooley, nationally renowned speaker and home performance expert. The program Co-sponsors involved APS and the State Energy Office. A second healthy home seminar was held on July 20th at the Scottsdale Mustang Library. The seminars provided tips for home owners on what to look for to get a comfortable, healthy, energy-efficient home.

By all accounts, both seminars were a success. Over 80 people were in attendance at each seminars and represented mostly the general public. Constructive feedback indicated that the title of the seminar was a bit misleading, since the speaker (John Tooley) didn't spend a lot of time on health and indoor air quality. His primary focus was on strategies for energy efficiency through a tight building envelope and balanced air distribution system. Thanks to Dee Jaye Lockwood, Richard Schwab, Steve Sales, Beverly Westgaard, Christina Suarez Farrell, Joan Yost and other committee members who assisted. And a special thanks to Tom Hines at APS for making the arrangements for John Tooley to speak.

Green Building Lecture Series
In an effort to promote the growing and dynamic field of green building, the Scottsdale Green Building Program presents the Green Building Lecture Series. Each lecture will address one of the many and varied green building subjects that demonstrate energy and resource efficient, healthy, and environmentally responsible building practices.

The kick off lecture took place on October 4. at the Scottsdale Redevelopment & Urban Design Studio. Lectures will take place on the 1st Wednesday of the month through June of 2001.

Solar/Green Building Home Tour
Scottsdale Green Building Program's joined forces the Arizona Solar Energy Association. to host the "Living with the Sun Home Tour on Saturday, Oct. 21, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The tour was a self-guided tour of solar, energy efficient, and environmentally responsible buildings in the Valley of the Sun. Despite rain, as many as 100 people were estimated at most of the homes. The tour showcased nine homes and one commercial project. Construction systems included wood, insulated masonry, insulated concrete forms, steel and strawbale. Home types ranged from production models to highly custom "spec homes" offered on the market. Builders enjoyed the opportunity to present their projects and market their interest in green building to the general public.
